Crustless Spinach Quiche




I am huge fan of quiches and just love creating new and inventive ways to make them. The possibilities are endless. One of my favorite versions, is this crustless spinach quiche. There is no need to make (or buy) the crust, so this particular recipe is really simple to whip up.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 8 Large Eggs, beaten
  • 1 Package of Thawed and Drained Chopped Frozen Spinach (10 ounces)
  • ½ Large Onion, Chopped into Small Pieces
  • 2 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ½ to 1 Tablespoon of Oil

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet and add the onions.
  3. Continue to stir the onions until they start becoming slightly translucent
  4. Add the thawed (and drained) spinach and sauté until cooked.
  5. If needed, drain any excess moisture from the cooked onion and spinach, then set aside.
  6. Combine the beaten eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper into a large bowl
  7. Stir in the cooked onion and spinach to combine.
  8. Pour the entire mixture into a greased 9 inch pie pan
  9. Bake for about 30 minutes. The eggs should be set and there will be a little browning on top.

Note: Is it very important to drain the spinach as much as possible to avoid a mushy mess in your quiche.
