Spinach Quiche

These little spinach quiches are another option for large group entertaining.

I chose to post spinach quiche because this is the favorite vegetable in this house!
You can vary the recipe by changing your fresh ingredients.
Try ham and cheese.
Bacon, caramelized onion and tomato.
Mushroom and goat cheese with thyme.
Simple eggs, onion, and truffle cream or truffle oil.

They are also perfect for lunch and or dinner.

Toss a fresh salad to go along with it and you have a perfectly easy and delicious meal.

For the quiche.

Frozen pastry shells(no lard! Look for all vegetable shortening).
Place frozen pastry shells on a baking tray and cook as per directions.

1/2 cup Frozen spinach-
1 onion finely diced
1/8 teaspoon grated nutmeg
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
8 eggs

Run the spinach under hot water to defrost.
Squeeze out any excess liquid.
Place in a colander in the sink and let any liquid come out.

Meanwhile, in a frying pan gently saute the onions.
In a bowl whip the eggs.
Add nutmeg and season with salt and pepper.
Add the mozzarella cheese.

Add the spinach to the frying pan and gently cook on low heat until warm.
Allow to cool slightly.

Mix the whipped eggs with the spinach mixture.

Ladle or pour the egg mixture into the pastry shells and top with more mozzarella cheese.

Cook until cooked about 10 minutes.
