Recipe: Spinach Quiche

here. I only changed a few small details to make an already fool proof recipe even simpler, but make sure to check out the original version in case it sounds better to you. Her pictures are also prettier, if we’re being honest.

You Will Need:
♥ 1 Frozen pie crust
♥ 3 ounces of cream cheese (room temperature)
♥ 1/3 cup of milk
♥ 3 eggs
♥ 1 10-ounce package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained // or about 1 lb. fresh cooked spinach, drained
♥ 1/2 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
♥ 1/4 cup Parmesan
♥ 1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
♥ 1/4 teaspoon of salt
♥ 1/4 teaspoon of pepper

Start by preheating your oven to 425° and set out your frozen pie crust. Thaw or cook your spinach - I’ve used frozen and fresh - both are yummy! Beat cream cheese in a medium bowl until smooth. Add in milk and eggs and mix well. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Pour mixture into pie crust. Bake for between 25-30 minutes. It usually takes closer to 30 minutes in my oven.

Tips:
♥ Drain spinach easily by placing thawed/cooked spinach into a bowl and setting another bowl on top/inside of that bowl. Squeeze the bowls together over the sink to drain out the excess liquid.
♥ If your pie crusts usually get a little overdone and dry - before baking set the pie crust on a sheet of tinfoil and fold tinfoil over the edges of the crust. About 5 minutes before the quiche is done cooking, carefully peel back the tinfoil and expose the crust for the remaining cook time.
♥ If you love cheese - sprinkle a little bit extra on the very top of the quiche before baking. MMMM… cheese!

Freckles was eyeing my big batch of spinach the entire time. He can smell leafy greens a mile away. And bananas. Don’t be fooled by the cartoons folks - it would have been a lot more realistic for bugs bunny to have been noming a banana everywhere he went vs a carrot. Our bunnies are very unimpressed by carrots.
