spinich quicheChristmas and other holiday mornings can be crazy and even stressful with all of the fuss and fun. Prepare this simple quiche ahead. Pop in the oven when you are opening packages and soon the smells of breakfast will fill the house! Serve with fresh berries making Christmas morning savory, simple, and special!

Spinach and Feta Quiche

  • 2 (10 oz.) pkg. frozen chopped spinach (thawed)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. half and half (may substitute 1 c. evaporated skim milk)
  • 1 c. crumbled feta cheese (4 oz.)
  • 2 T. chopped green onions
  • 1/2 t. lemon zest, if tolerated
  • 1/2 t. salt
  • 1/4 t. pepper
  • 1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell (may use refrigerator or frozen dough)
Pierce bottom of pie shell and bake for 5 minutes at 350°F. Cool slightly. Raise temperature of oven to 400°F. Drain spinach and press out all liquid. (This can be done easily between layers of paper towels.) Set aside.

Whisk eggs and half-and-half or milk in bowl. Add cheese, green onions, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Pour into partially baked pie shell. Bake on middle rack, 400°F for 10 minutes, reducing oven temperature to 350°F for the last 25 minutes.
Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche: Substitute 1 cup frozen broccoli florets for the spinach and 1/2 cup shredded white cheddar cheese for the feta cheese.
