My favorite food is breakfast. Or even better, brunch. I don’t know what it is about these delectable foods that we get to consume in the AM that I love so much, but I do. Quiche however, is an exception. You can have quiche with literally any meal. Breakfast? Yes. Brunch? Aww yea! Dinner? Oh, why yes you can. Snack time? Don’t mind if I do. Pair your quiche with a salad and some balsamic vinegar and you’ve got a fantastic meal.
Unfortunately though, there’s this illusion that quiche is hard to make. I’m here to tell you on the contrary, quiche is quite simple to make. You can make it as a big quiche for everyone to share, or in muffin tins so everyone can just grab their own. Honestly, I prefer mini quiches.. Probably because they’re just so darn cute. But also, you don’t have to make the entire batch the same. Which would be especially useful if you had a vegetarian friend coming over, but you would personally like some ham or sausage in yours.
All right, all right.. I’ll stop blabbing on now.
What you’ll need:
*The veggies you put in is going to depend on what kind of quiche you want to make! The one below is just for spinach and mushroom. You can easily add cherry tomatoes, peppers (aka capsicum), onion, artichoke, etc. With all of these I would do about about 1 cup.
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups spinach
- 8 oz (or 1-2 cups) baby-bella mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (optional)
- Splash of milk (optional)
- 1 tbsp basil and/or oregano (optional)
- Preheat to 375F/190C
- Sautee mushroom
- Using about medium heat, cook the spinach until wilted
- Mix all ingredients together
- Lightly spray pan with cooking spray (or put liners in)
- Fill about 3/4 full
- Bake for 20-25 minutes
If you would prefer to do these in a bigger dish, you don’t have the change anything for the recipe, only add about 10 minutes to the cook time. Use the toothpick trick to check if it’s done.
