Spinach and Mushroom Goat Cheese Quiche
IMG_0909IMG_0906IMG_0910
Tonight I made a quiche that was packed, possibly over packed, with spinach and mushrooms. Since we like goat cheese, I broke up large chunks and scattered them on the crust before pouring the egg mixture in. To get some color on the top I went with Parmesan cheese because I didn’t think it would compete with the goat cheese.

We enjoyed it for dinner but certainly great for breakfast or brunch. Also holds up well throughout the week. This savory quiche is packed with veggies all suspended in an omelet like egg pie with bursts of tangy goat cheese countered by the slightly sweet crust.

Ingredients:
Pie crust
Two handfuls of spinach
1/2 cup of chopped mushrooms
4 eggs
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup of Goat cheese
Parmesan Cheese to top

Directions:
1. Take your pie crust and use a fork to poke the crust so it won’t rise in the oven. You can also put beans or a pan on top of it to accomplish the same thing. Cook it according to the directions on the pie crust. Set aside and let it cool.

2. While the pie crust is baking, Take a saute pan and cook your spinach and mushrooms until they are tender. try to remove as must moisture as possible by squeezing it in a paper towel. Set this aside.

3. In a separate dish crack your eggs and milk and whisk it completely. To assemble your quiche break up the goat cheese and scatter it on the bottom. Next mix your spinach/mushrooms with the egg mixture and pour into the pie sheel. Mine was pretty packed. You may have extra. IMG_0903IMG_0904IMG_0901

4. Now protect your crust by wrapping foil around it so that it doesn’t over cook in the oven. Remember the pie crust is already cooked so you want to protect it. Top with Parmesan cheese to cover. Put in a 350 degree oven and cook for about 30-45 minutes. Just check it at the 30 minute mark and watch it until the eggs are solid and not giggly.

A cold rainy morning where your bed begs you stay put. Two pugs wedged into my side like two old-fashioned hot water bottles. Just asking me for just one more snooze. Nah I can’t. Okay let’s do this… Smoking cup of dark roasted coffee and some mini breakfast sandwiches pry me out and present me with a new day of kick assery.

I had some bread left over from my bahn mi sandwich that I posted earlier. Little spicy turkey sausage, poached eggs and a little cheddar make everything better.

Had some heirlooms tomatoes and green onions I needed to use up so I used them in my eggs. I just cut up the tomatoes and onions and put them on a medium low skillet for one minute. Lowered the temp to low and let it cook for another minute. Added the eggs and scrambled them until done (medium) topped with goat cheese and put some American cheese on sourdough toast and broiled until brown on the top.
