Spinach and Feta Quiche
So, to save money on our weekly grocery bill, we have a meatless dinner night. In my house, there is some hesitation when dinner does not include meat. This one though, was received very well. Maybe because cheese makes everything yummy or because eggs can be so filling for less than a dollar. The best thing about this recipe is that it can be change to include what ever vegetables are on hand and cheese that may be in the fridge. I've already tried broccoli, and it was great. And of course, Honey said it would be even better with bacon, but the point is to be meatless.
SPINACH AND FETA QUICHE
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
5 eggs, beaten
1 cup crumbled feta
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a casserole or pie dish with vegetable spray.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute onions and garlic until softened. Add spinach and heat through.
In a large bowl, combine eggs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add spinach mixture and stir to blend. Scoop into prepared dish.
Bake in preheated oven until eggs have set, about 30-45 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
