Real Man's Quiche Makes Its Own Crust

Updated on January 13, 2010

Listen to lilting string music as you 'prepare' and enjoy your quiche!

Quiche Makes Its Own Crust

How about a quick and easy meal for any time of the day, that makes leftovers usable for breakfast, lunch or snack, is healthy and tastes good!

That could describe this cheesy spinach quiche, which is fast and fun to make because it makes its own crust.

This is a country cook receipe which can be easily adjusted to make larger or smaller servings as desired - just change the amounts of spinach, peppers onion; add in chopped or leftover meats, more cheese, croutons or flavored dressing mix. (If adding more, be sure to add adequate egg and or milk also. I have used dressing mix alone without the flour, at times.

First, heat your oven to desired temperature, higher for fast cooking(and easier burning) or lower temp if you're not pressed for time, about 325 degrees. Use olive oil or spray to coat glass baking dish to have ready to receive the quiche. Beat 5 or 6 natural eggs in a large bowl with hand whisk til well mixed, but not frothy. Add a good half cup of milk, sea salt to taste, pepper, sprinkle of Mrs. Dash's original or table seasoning. Mix in about 1/3 cup of either cornmeal or flour. Add in coarsely chopped bell pepper to your liking along with chopped onion(dried or fresh minced).

May also add some finely grated carrots, parsley, chives, and garlic if desired. If using Spam or leftover meat, add it in now. Then add in one regular size can of drained spinach, one 8 oz package of grated cheese, and stir in well. Pour into baking dish and cover lightly with foil to prevent overbrowning or drying. Bake about 20 minutes, and remove foil and return to oven to bake until center is slightly puffed. Test center with toothpick to ascertain doneness according to temperature and dish size used. When done may be served with ketchup or chopped tomatoes, gravy, salsa, or just plain. It may be 'fake quiche' but it is a yummy and filling meal.

      Frogyfish--It's me again! I'm about finished with the recipe you requested--my delicious favorite spinach quiche hub. I like to look it over for a day at least, so I will probably publish it tomorrow morning or later in the day. Hope you like it. Thanks for the inspiration to write another hub!

      Hey, frogyfish--glad I saw this! It's not an original recipe, but I guess I could even hub it as long as I give credit to the source. It's good. Uses swiss cheese--yummy! We can compare notes!

      It is good - hot, or also leftovers for me. You don't really taste the cornmeal/flour; it does give it a vague crusty bottom that makes it possible to eat as finger food.

      Hope you try it - let me know how you like it!

      I've never heard of putting corn meal or flour into a quiche. But it's been a long time since I've made quiche and no crust means a lot less calories. Thanks for the recipe, frogyfish.
