Homemade Spinach Quiche Ingredients
- Frozen Dough – using a store bought crust makes this recipe an absolute breeze.
- Egg – serves as the base for your quiche filling.
- Spinach – full of health benefits, spinach adds a nice green flavor and color contrast.
- Onion – provides some extra savory flavor that pairs well with the spinach and cheese.
- Cheddar Cheese – offers a nice sharp cheesiness and an extra melty consistency.
- Feta – a classic pairing with spinach, feta has a tangy and rich flavor with a deliciously crumbly texture.
- Salt & Pepper – to taste
- Prepare all ingredients. Defrost the dough, prick with a fork, and blind bake in a pie pan at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs with salt and pepper. Set aside.
- Put the chopped onion and spinach on the pie crust. Then add grated cheddar and feta crumbs to the spinach mixture.
- Pour the egg mixture over, put the pieces of butter on top. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-40 minutes.
Should crust for quiche be pre-baked?
Yes, this is essential for avoiding a gummy or soggy crust. Because the crust bakes at a different rate than the filling, baking it all together will cause the egg filling to seep into the crust and prevent it from baking all the way through, and in order to get a nice golden brown crust, you would also have to over-bake the filling.
Is fresh or frozen spinach better for quiche?
Fresh spinach will provide a stronger spinach flavor, and one that’s fresher. While frozen works great for the crust, you’ll want to use fresh spinach unless you absolutely have to use frozen.
Should vegetables be cooked before adding to quiche?
In some cases, this can improve the flavor and texture of your vegetables. Especially for an ingredient like onions, heating them up until they’re about halfway cooked can deepen their flavor and greatly improve the quality of the quiche.
If you do cook any vegetables before baking, cook them in a bit of olive oil and be sure to drain off any excess liquid to avoid a soggy or runny quiche.
What goes with spinach quiche?
While this homemade quiche is delicious all on its own, try pairing it with one of these options for a delicious and satisfying combination: your favorite salad, potatoes, a good sturdy bread, soup, rolls, fruit salad, or roasted vegetables.
But feel free to try it with any number of side dishes–this is a great way to serve quiche as a main course!
Popular Variations and Substitutions
- For additional flavor, add some minced garlic.
- Some quiche recipes call for heavy cream to make the egg filling much richer. You can add some of this if you prefer a more dense and filling quiche, or leave it out for a slightly healthier and lighter version.
- If you want some protein in your quiche, mix in bacon or sausage.
- For a pop of another color, use diced tomatoes, red bell peppers, or red onion.
- When baking the crust, it can be helpful to cover it with some parchment paper or aluminum foil and fill with pie weights. This will prevent the crust from warping away from the edges of the pie tin.
- Other ingredients for additional flavor: lemon zest, fresh dill, cayenne pepper, red pepper flakes, thyme.
