Quiche is a savory dish consisting of a pastry crust filled with eggs, milk, cheese, vegetables and potentially also seafood or meat. It is generally regarded as a classic French dish but surprisingly it actually originated in Germany. The word quiche is from the German word ‘kuchen’, meaning cake. Quiche should be baked at a temperature not higher than 375°F as the custard needs time to set during baking. Baking at a higher temperature will give you a dry, tough and rubbery filling.
If you want a quick and easy to make quiche, then this recipe has your back. You will surely love that same soft, creamy, and cheesy custard in a much lighter version, a crustless spinach quiche. You can serve this quiche hot or cold for any meal of the day. You can even prepare it ahead of time, then slice just before serving.
