We 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.
- Make the crust according to package or recipe directions. Form the crust in a 9-inch pie pan, preferably a stainless steel pan.
- In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs until blended. Add the spinach, half and half, grated cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
- 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.
