Spinach and Chive Quiche
I love quiche and surprise, surprise, Jamison doesn't. So every once in a while I make one for lunch. This variation turned out especially yummy! The cheeses settled to make layers that all sort of melded together into a lovely taste sensation! If you like quiche then most definitely try this one!
What You'll Need:
1 pie shell
8-10 eggs (Depending on size. More on that in the recipe itself.)
1/3 cup of chopped chives
1 1/2 cups of fresh spinach, chopped or julienned
A pinch of sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup of Parmesan cheese, grated
1 cup of Buttermilk cheese (or Cheddar), shredded
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Press pie crust into a pie dish and set aside. (Note: You can make your own or you can use a premade shell. It's completely up to you. I happened to have a couple of shells in the fridge from when my parents were here so I just used one of those.)
Beat together 8 eggs and stir in remaining ingredients and pour into pie shell. If this doesn't fill up the pie shell then beat a couple of more eggs and pour over the top. Bake quiche for 30-40 minutes or until done through. Remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes. Serve warm.
Notes: You can add other cheeses, or throw in some meat, or even use different veggies. Mushrooms are always good, as are onions and asparagus. It's another one of those recipes you can tweak endlessly and it's always good! Add a side salad and you've got a meal!

Same situation at home, Dianne - I love quiche and tarts in general, but my husband doesn't.
I sometimes make it and indulge myself. :)
Yours look delicious and I love spinach!

Jamison is an extremely picky eater. In fact most of what I post on Dianne's Dishes he won't eat, but luckily Alexis is more like me in terms of foods and especially if she helps make it, she'll at least try what we made together.
