Easy Spinach Quiche Recipe with Swiss Cheese

Do You Like Spinach?

I love quiche. And I love spinach. Combining them is a winning combination. When I use spinach to make a quiche, I’ve created a bit of heaven. If you like spinach and Swiss cheese, you should love this recipe. All of the ingredients used make a great mix, with flavors that blend to create a delectable recipe.

While this recipe is not an original, I will give little side notes on a few things I have learned, or ingredients I prefer. This recipe is on one of those cards that come in a set with some recipe box. Remember those? I think those are still sold. I have had this recipe for years; I think that it was on a free set of cards that came in the mail. The only credit I see to give is at the bottom of the card: My Great Recipes Packet 3. There you go. And now, on with this delicious recipe.


The Card the Original Recipe Was On

Ingredients:

1 8 or 9 inch partially baked pastry shell (partially baked? I stick it in just for a few minutes until it hardens some from its soft dough state.)

1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard (I use generic Dijon-style.)

2 Tbsp. minced green onion (Sometimes I use a little more!)

1 pkg (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, cooked and drained

½ tsp. salt

Dash of pepper

Dash of nutmeg

1 cup ricotta, cottage cheese, or diced mild white brick cheese? ( I use ricotta or cottage cheese, whichever I have on hand; when I have a choice, I choose ricotta. I’ve never tried the white brick cheese. Would that be Monterey Jack?)

3 eggs

½ cup whipping cream

¼ cup shredded Swiss cheese (or a bit more!)

1 Tbsp. soft butter or margarine (I prefer real butter!)


What to Serve Spinach Quiche With?

This quiche is great served alongside beans. Pinto or black beans are best with it, in my opinion. This makes a whole meal! It can also be served as an appetizer or breakfast item.

I have made this quiche several times, and it always turns out well. It’s a real delight!

Instructions for Spinach and Swiss Quiche

After you take the partially baked pastry shell out of the oven, brush the shell with the mustard. Chop green onions and sauté in butter. Add cooked and drained spinach. Stir all together over medium heat to cook up the moisture. Stir in salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in ricotta (or cottage cheese or brick cheese). Taste for seasoning. You can adjust as needed. Blend in eggs and whipping cream. Pour mixture into the pie shell. Sprinkle with grated Swiss cheese and then dot with butter. Real butter is so good! Sometimes I have added a little more than what the recipe calls for--yummy!

Put this lovely creation in the oven, preheated to 375 degrees. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes or until set. You can tell by the crust turning a golden brown and the cheese melting nicely that the quiche is done.

Serve this quiche alone for brunch or for lunch or supper with some kind of protein on the side. I love black or other beans with this dish. You could also serve chicken or a slice of ham. No matter how you serve it, you'll love this quiche.

This a very wonderful spinach recipe. We all should eat more spinach and this dish is going to be an injoyable way to do it. Very good work, Victoria Lynn.

I think spinach dishes are the greatest. You picked a good time to publish this one, Victoria Lynn. Nice change from leftover turkey, and since it's easy to make pie crust, there's no excuse not to make this again and again. Voted up and all the rest.

I love quiche and I love all kinds of cheese but I've never tried spinage - but this recipe looks so delicious that this would be a good time to try it! It's a while since I've seen such wonderful looking quiche I hope mine's turns out half as good!

Voted up + awesome!!

I would recommend that you devise a stir-fried spinash dish for those of us who love stir-fried meals. While practicing medicine in Japan (and learning Nature farming) it was a joy to eat spinach dishes prepared in different ways. My travels in South Korea also revealed great stir-fried dishes. Happy Thanksgiving Day to all.

Hi Victoria, I love quiche and I love spinach, I've grown loads in the garden this year, but have never used in a quiche, I'm looking forward to trying this recipe, thank you for sharing, MM

Hope it turns out well for you, Seeker7! I love it!

Dr. Haddox--a stir-fry dish with spinach sounds great. I've never tried that, actually, but would certainly be willing to come up with such a recipe. Would be a fun experiment--and tasty, I'm sure!

Movie Master--I bet that fresh spinach would be great in this quiche, too. I've only tried it with frozen. Let me know how it turns out...if you think to do so. Thanks for checking out this hub!

It IS tasty, ktrapp! I think it's the Swiss cheese and Dijon mustard that may make the difference. You be the judge! Thanks for looking!

I love the first few lines of your hub and how it automatically gets you thinking about the foods. I am looking forward to trying this one since it sounds easy enough for even me to make. I'm always looking for recipes with only fresh ingredients.

jbrock--Thanks for the compliment on how the hub starts out; that's nice to hear! Also, if you like fresh ingredients, you could try using fresh spinach. One reader mentioned that. I just had never thought about it. Frozen works well, but I might try fresh myself. Thanks for your comments!

Ah, Victoria Lynn, you did it! Thanks for sharing your recipe. I shall try it soon. And I do think the brick cheese might be Monterey Jack. I voted 'me loves spinach...' but I also like to eat the dandelions...literally. :-)
