Recipe: Easter Quiche

5 May

I know, I know- I totally missed the mark on getting my Easter recipes posted before the holiday so they would actually be useful. However, I submit that the next few recipes I’ll be sharing over the next week can be used at any time- but are especially perfect for Easter. A great example of this is this quiche recipe, which is a little bit of a combination of two recipes by one of my favorite bloggers- Sydney from Sydney’s Kitchen. Here’s a recipe she posted for a Crustless Spinach, Broccoli, and Mushroom Quiche, and then another for a Broccoli and Mushroom Quiche. I mixed the two, then added some of my own stuff. Enjoy!

Easter Quiche

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups spinach, stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped mushrooms
  • ½ cup broccoli florets
  • ¼ cup white onions, diced
  • ¼ cup green onions, sliced
  • ¼ cup tomatoes, diced
  • ½ cup cooked sausage crumbled
  • ½ cup cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¾ cup half and half
  • 1 ½ cups cheddar cheese
  • 1 prepared baked pie crust

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Bake a 9-inch pie crust according to directions and set aside.
  3. Combine the eggs, milk, and cheese in a medium bowl.
  4. Whisk the eggs and milk until thoroughly combined.
  5. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  6. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring until tender, about 5 minutes.
  7. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minutes more.
  8. Add the broccoli, red pepper, green onion and cook, stirring, until any remaining moisture has evaporated and the broccoli is slightly tender, about 4 minutes.  Remove from heat. Stir in bacon and sausage.
  9. Allow the pie crust to cool before filling.
  10. Spoon the broccoli mixture evenly into the pie shell.
  11. Sprinkle with the cheese.
  12. Pour in the egg mixture.
  13. Bake the quiche until puffed and golden brown, about 35 minutes.
