Spinach & Cheese Quiche


This quiche is super easy to make. I usually make it for dinner when I have nothing else to make. We usually eat it with a side of cantaloupe or kiwi. When we have left overs we eat them the next moring for breakfast. Bon app├ętit!

1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust (I used the frozen pie crust from IGA)
1/3 cup of chopped onions
1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese (You can use any type of cheese)
4 Large Eggs
2 cups whipping cream or half-and-half (I only used a 1 1/2 cups of whipping cream)
1/4 tsp of salt
1/4 tsp of pepper
1/8 tsp ground red cayenne pepper

You can always substitute the spinach for mushrooms, broccoli or asparagus. Also, you can put bacon, chicken and any type of cheese. Spread cheese over the bottom of the unbaked pie crust. Set aside a bit of the cheese for later use. Then spread onions and spinach on top of the cheese. In a medium mixing bowl combine eggs, whipping cream or half and half, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Pour cream mixture over veggies and cheese. Sprinkle cheese on top of the mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 mins.

Haha...that is pretty funny that you recognize that plate. We had some friends visiting us from England. And they said that those plates are pretty expensive in England.....how did they end up in Grenada...who knows. We went online and find out the whole set of plates is worth 400US. So there is a fun fact about "our" plates.
