Spinach and Swiss Quiche

Spinach QuicheWe debated—should we use mozzarella or Swiss for this quiche.  We chose Swiss but you can choose either.  If you like spinach, try this quiche.


1 single pie crust

4 large eggs
3/4 cup cooked spinach, chopped and with the water very well drained
2 cups half and half
1 cup grated Swiss cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  1. Make the crust according to package or recipe directions.  Form the crust in a 9-inch pie pan, preferably a stainless steel pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs until blended.  Add the spinach, half and half, grated cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  3. Pour the filling into crust and bake for 45 minutes or until the quiche tests done.  The quiche is baked when a thermometer inserted in the center of the pie reads 170 degrees.
