Too many eggs means kid friendly quiche

About 6 weeks ago the girls (the backyard chickens) started slowly laying eggs, despite our long winter days. (Hens need a “certain” amount of light to lay eggs) At first we could keep up, but they are slowly starting to amp things up which means we have a lot of eggs.

I want to do something more than just scrambled eggs so I threw together this kid friendly quiche over the weekend. Everyone loved it, well, almost, but then again, Sebby is just one of those kids.

Quiche is one of those things that sounds all fancy and complicated until you make it. An added bonus is there are so many ways to make it you can really make a unique quiche every time.

Kid Friendly Quiche

1 (9 inch) Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion (I use frozen all the time)
1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
8 farm fresh eggs
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup Tillamook 4 cheese Mexican blend shredded cheese
salt and ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bring the pie crust to room temperature (this is really important!).
Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; add the onion and cook until onion becomes transparent, about 5 minutes. Add your spinach to the onion and cover the skillet, mix until combined, cover and turn off the heat.

Unroll the crust and press to fit into a 9 inch pie plate. You can trim the edges or just roll them in, which is what I do. Mmm. More crusty goodness.

Beat the eggs in a large bowl (I like to use a Pampered Chef batter bowl) until light colored and frothy. Add cheese and s then pinach mixture, and stir until well blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Pour it all into prepared pie crust.

Bake in preheated oven until the top is golden brown, and an inserted tooth pick comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Serve with fresh fruit!

    This sounds great I will have to give it a try. My first time with quiche was not so great. As my mom tells it I was at her friends house and I was about 5 and this is what she was serving I took one look and said no way. Well my mom being a good mom said you at least need to try it…well I threw up all over the place lol. I stayed away from Quiche until my late thirties second time around was a charm 😉

  7. You should try making it with kale one day…..yummy!

  8. Jennifer Hiles says:

    Wow, this looks good. It’s making me very hungry! I’ve never made quiche before but it looks fairly simple. I’d love to try this but first I need to get my oven repaired!
