Quiche est très bonne!!
I'm about to share a scrumptious Quiche recipe with you. Now some of you may be wondering what exactly Quiche is, and I'm here to tell you! It's an oven baked dish made with eggs, milk or cream, and cheese. A variety of meats, vegetables and cheeses can be added to create your own one of a kind Quiche. There are so many variations, the one below just happens to be one of my favorites. It has its roots in French cuisine, and ironically my first taste of this amazing dish was in Paris! Fitting, huh?
I hope you enjoy!
Spinach -Artichoke-Mushroom Quiche = DELICIOUS!
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
2 Shallots ( or 1/2 onion) chopped
60z Fresh Spinach
7oz Artichoke hearts, chopped
1/2 c. Portabello mushrooms, chopped
1/4c Pine nuts, toasted
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Cayenne
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 c Milk + 1/2c half n half, combined
3/4 Asiago cheese
1/4 Parmesan cheese
1 pie shell
Preheat your oven to 375. Pre-bake your pie shell till slightly golden, do not over bake! Sautee' garlic, shallots (or onion -whichever you prefer) for 1-2 min. Add mushrooms and allow to soften, add spinach, nuts, seasoning and remove from heat. Allow spinach to slightly wilt together with other ingredients. Pour into bowl to cool.
Once cooled off enough, add eggs, milk and cheese. Pour into crust and bake for 45-60min or until set.
Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, and enjoy!!
Note: You can also make mini quiches if you have a mini muffin tin. They make great appetizers!
