Real Men Cook Quiche

Pin It Now!

I've been sick this week and Steve (my sweet husband) offered to make dinner.  
He asked what sounded good to me and I really just wanted some quiche!  
Odd, because it's been a really long time since I've eaten or even thought about quiche.  
Anyway,  he dove right in and managed to cook me the very best quiche I've ever had…

I wanted spinach quiche but the husband and kids don't love spinach like I do. 
They wanted bacon quiche and I'm not a bacon fan so he made two different quiches.
They both turned out incredible so I'm sharing both recipes.

Spinach Feta Quiche

1/2 stick butter
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 (10 oz) package of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well
5 oz. crumbled feta cheese
8 oz. cheddar cheese
salt and pepper
1 unbaked pie crust
4 eggs
1 c. fat free half and half

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Melt butter in a medium skillet and saute garlic and onion until browned.
Stir in spinach, feta and 1/2 c. cheddar cheese.  Salt and Pepper generously.
Spoon mixture into pie crust.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top.
Bake 35 minutes.
Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving.

 Bacon Quiche

8 slices of center-cut bacon
9 inch pie crust
2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 c. colby jack cheese, shredded
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
5 eggs
1 1/2 c. fat free half and half
1/2 c. onion, chopped
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1 red pepper, chopped
1 (4 oz) can diced green chile peppers, drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cook bacon, then remove bacon 
and drain bacon grease from pan but do not rinse.
Place bacon in the bottom of pie crust.
Cook onion, garlic and red pepper in the bacon-greased skillet.
In a separate bowl, mix eggs, half and half and green chiles.
Add flour and cheeses to egg mixture.
Then combine the skillet and egg mixtures. 
Pour into pie crust over the top of the bacon.
Bake for 60 minutes or until set.  
Let stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
