This Spinach Quiche recipe from SmittenKitchen was so good, we had it two weeks in a row! I just use my standard pie crust (1 c flour, 1/3 c butter, 6-8 Tbs water). I think making this in a tart pan, rather than a pie plate keeps the quiche a bit shallower and that seems to make it extra yummy. We had gruyere cheese which was delicious, we never did try it with cheddar as the original called for–maybe next time 🙂 ! Everyone in the family was fighting for leftovers. The second time, we basically doubled the recipe to make sure everyone had a delicious lunch the following day.
This goes really well with the Zucchini Carpaccio Salad, also from SmittenKitchen.
