Spinach and Parmesan Quiche by 2sistersrecipes.com

A tasty, Spinach and Parmesan Quiche is loaded with fresh spinach, onions, eggs, Parmesan cheese, shredded mozzarella and half and half; then baked into a frozen pie crust until golden brown. So Yummy! A spinach quiche like this one will make a wonderful addition to your breakfast or brunch table.

After the holidays, vegetable loaded quiches like this one are very easy to make and hard to mess up. Not only are they very practical, the’re convenient and very light to eat, especially when you want lighter meals during weeknights.

This spinach and cheese quiche requires a quick whisk of eggs, half and half and a mixture of spinach and onions; then into a frozen pie crust it goes!  If you follow 2SR then you know we love to save time by using frozen pie crusts. We keep these pie crusts in the freezer all year long. They come in handy especially when you need to whip up something quick for dinner, or even a dessert from time to time.

An ideal dish to make for meatless Mondays! This Spinach and Parmesan Quiche is one of the lightest and most delicious quiche I have ever made!

Most recipes for quiches require a few simple ingredients, using 3 eggs or less, some milk and cheeses, depending on the recipe.  But the more vegetables you add, the healthier they will be, containing less fat and less calories than ones that are loaded with mostly cheeses.

Honestly, this Spinach and Parmesan Quiche is SO good, you can certainly serve it anytime.

Enjoy and Happy Monday!!
