Ingredients
  1. What you'll need...
  2. 6 large eggs (3 whole, 3 egg whites)
  3. 1 pre made pie crust (or homemade...whatever floats your boat)
  4. 2 large bunches of fresh spinach (if you must you can use 1 package of frozen, but it's not quite the same)
  5. 3 cloves of fresh garlic minced
  6. 1/2 onion finely chopped
  7. 2 cups of shredded cheese (mozzarella/cheddar mixed)
  8. 1 cup of crumbled goat cheese
  9. 1 cup milk (or rice milk if you're not doing dairy)
  10. salt/pepper to taste
  11. 1 tsp. olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Place crust in a tart or shallow pie dish, fork bottom and place pie beads on crust so it doesn't bubble.  Bake crust for 20-30 minutes.  Remove and set aside.
  3. In a sauté pan add 1 tsp of olive oil let heat, add onions and garlic.  Saute for 3-5 minutes or until onions are translucent.  Begin to add spinach and cook until it just begins to soften 2-3 minutes. **You want the spinach to be softened but not wilted by the heat**
  4. In a large bowl add eggs, milk, shredded cheese, and goat cheese.  Stir in spinach, onion and garlic mixture.  Add salt and pepper, stir together.
  5. Add entire mixture to your tart pan and cook for 45-50 minutes or until the top starts to just brown.  If crust begins to burn cover with pie covers or tin foil.
  6. Let cool for 5-10 minutes and enjoy!

    Finding the Christmas tree in the forest.

  • What a great idea. I should start a Christmas brunch tradition!

  • Allison / 12.06.2013

    Every Christmas Eve we take a long evening family walk to see the lights on all the houses, go to midnight mass and come home and make homemade Cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning.

  • This looks incredible!!!

  • tiffany / 12.07.2013

    I love just having the chance to spend time with family and friends. Good food is a bonus 🙂

  • Putting up the outside decorations, eating cinnamon rolls on Christmas Day after putting out Baby Jesus in the manger!

    Watching The Holiday while sipping red wine:)

  • It’s my absolute favorite! xo

  • That sounds divine! Happy Christmas! xo

  • It really is delish! xo

  • This looks so delicious! Could I use feta instead of goat cheese?

  • Absolutely! You could use any cheese you would like really! xo

    What do you do with the shredded cheese?

  • Meredith / 04.30.2014

    I was trying to figure that out too when I made this last weekend! I decided since the shredded cheese wasn’t in the directions it was a typo in the ingredients. I only used the goat cheese and this came out divine!! I don’t think you need the shredded cheese (and after making it am pretty sure that is listed in the ingredients by mistake). I made it for a brunch with my family and there was not one drop left!

    SORRY TO TELL YOU BUT IF YOU ARE NOT USING DAIRY I GUESS THAT WOULD MEAN NO CHEESE OR EGGS EITHER SORRY JUST THOUGH I’D LET YOU KNOW. LOL

  • Betony Payne / 08.24.2015

    This is the best quiche I have ever had. Hands down. I do add cranberries sprinkled on the top.

  • Kat Neunaber / 08.25.2015

    So happy to hear that, Betony!!! We’ll have to try cranberries on it next time too. Cheers! xo

    Hello,
    My husband and I made this for dinner tonight and even though we used a deep dish pre-made piecrust, we had enough mixture for 2 full pies. I’m surprised a tartlet pan would be large enough for the mixture. It was delicious and we got 2 pies out of it. A little much for 2 people, but lost of left overs, I suppose.

  • Mandy Kellogg Rye / 11.14.2016

    Oh goodness, that is so amazing! Can you freeze one? And maybe I need to re-look at the recipe and see if I accidentally doubled it. xo

  • Kara / 04.14.2017

    Just curious— can this quiche be made ahead of time and frozen, then baked/warmed in the morning? I’ve made this several years for Easter morning but I don’t have time this year in the morning. I would like to make it ahead of time! Thanks!

    Can’t wait to try this.
