Prepare Today Homemade - Spinach Mushroom Quiche

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
Whenever I am asked to bring a dish to a wedding or baby shower I like to try out a new recipe.  I know, that is like playing recipe roulette, but I like to make things my family won't normally eat for dinner.  I feel I can make something fancier or more adult than I usually cook for nightly meals.  I was asked to make an egg dish for a wedding shower and I found this recipe for spinach quiche.  I made a few changes and it turned out better then I thought!  It was the first dish gone at the shower and even my girls ate it! My kids are usually a little hesitant to try new dishes, especially spinach.  I decided to try it out as a dinner recipe last night and it was a hit!  The pan was scraped clean, with nothing left!! I don't know if my family was just starving or if they really did like it, but I am going with they loved it!  

Spinach Mushroom Quiche
1/4-1/2 C dehydrated onions (adjust amount to your taste)
2 T olive oil
10 eggs
1 1/2-2 C frozen spinach, thawed and drained well
1 can mushrooms drained
3-4 C cheese (I used half Mozzarella & half Cheddar) (adjust the amount to your taste)
1/2 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Reconstitute the onions in enough hot water to just cover them for 5-10 minutes.  While they are soaking, mix the eggs, spinach, mushrooms, cheese, salt and pepper in a bowl, stir well.

Drain the water off of the onions.  Heat the olive oil and saute the onions until slightly browned and hot.  Add them to the egg mixture, stir well.

Pour into a greased 13x9 pan and bake at 350° for a half hour or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.  You can half the recipe and make it in a pie dish for smaller servings.
