Spinach Quiche

spinach quicheI don’t know how to introduce this recipe.  I really think the picture speaks for itself.  I frequently requested this recipe growing up… it’s so delicious!!!

I know, I say that all the time.

But it’s really true.

Spinach Quiche

1 9-inch pie crust, pre-baked*
1 cup chopped onion
1 pound ground beef
1 10-ounce package frozen spinach, thawed and drained**
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 large eggs
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated, optional

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. Brown onions and hamburger.  Drain excess grease.  Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, and spinach, stirring well.  Mix eggs with milk and stir with meat mixture.  Pour into pre-baked pie shell and sprinkle with cheese (if using).

3. Bake 30 minutes.  Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

* I use the Foolproof Pie Crust recipe, and I always have some of it in the freezer so it’s really handy!
** You can also use fresh spinach (a very large bunch), cooked in a little water.  That’s what I used for these pictures.

  2. I have a recipe like this that I have been meaning to post. My son gets excited when I make it because we call it cheeseburger pie. 😉
