An Update at Last!

I know, I know. I have been MIA since Thanksgiving. To be honest, I haven't felt much like cooking and when I have cooked it's been very basic things or things I've made before. So here's my first new post in a while. I wish it were more exciting but this is what I've got. Quiche. It's actually the first time I've made quiche. I planned on making it weeks ago but never got around to it. I've been trying really hard to not go to the grocery store until the end of the week so I decided to use what I had to make dinner tonight. That resulted in me finally making this dish. I thought it turned out really well. My husband didn't like it, but I think it's more of a texture thing for him. He's just not a quiche kind of guy. But for me, it was really tasty. Hopefully I'll be back to blogging in full swing pretty soon and have lots more exciting recipes to post.

Spinach Quiche

1 9" frozen pie shell, defrosted 15 min
2 cups chopped baby spinach, washed
1/4 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 whole eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1-1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 375. Place pie pan on a baking sheet. Begin by sauteing the garlic and onion together in a skillet with olive oil for about 3-4 min. Set aside. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in cheese, onion and garlic, salt and pepper. Place chopped spinach in the bottom of the pie shell. Pour egg mixture over the spinach. Next, place aluminum foil around the edge of the pie shell to keep it from burning. Then, place the quiche in the oven and bake 35-45 min or until set. Remove foil from the edge of the pie pan the last 10-12 min to brown the edge of the crust. Let sit 5 min before slicing.

That looks so good! Right out of a magazine! My husband doesn't like quiche either. What's not to like? Eggs, veggies, cheese and pie crust? Yum!

That looks great! My mom made a couple of quiches (spinach and bacon/swiss) while we were home over Thanksgiving and they were fabulous!

Maybe quiche is a ladies dish - but the men just don't know what they are missing.
