Recipe Notes

  • The add-ons or substitutions are rather endless.  
  • Use fresh spinach!  About a large bag (at least 9 ounces), steamed down, drained and cooled.  I prefer baby spinach for its tenderness.  (I tend to get the huge box containers of spinach for salads.  When I have leftovers  in the box or its just gotten to the edge of where I'll eat in a salad... I use it in sautes or quiches.)
  • Change up the cheeses!  Use Swiss, Gouda, Muenster, Gruyere... etc.!  You can even add soft herb cheeses.  I've not ventured into goat cheeses yet, but if I do, I'll let you know.
  • Add herbs.  I love to add chives.  I've done a smoked salmon quiche before and added dill.  Basil might add a new twist to some quiches.  Be creative!
