My Angel’s Spinach Quiche

Assembled ingredients, note the green eggs

Baked golden to perfection

While I do not have the time to make quiche, I certainly do not have the time to make pastry dough. My wife makes the quiche around here and we use Pillsbury pie crust for all of our pie applications. It costs a little more than the store brand but is a superior product. We toast the pie shell for about ten minutes in a 425 degree oven before pouring the quiche batter in. Let it cool somewhat before adding the eggmix as well. The green eggs are in the informed(?) opinion of the farm where we got them “…lower in cholesterol…” Yea, what she said. They are mighty tasty. This makes a great side dish and even a satisfying meal. Good Stuff!
