Spinach, Green Onion, and Smoked Gouda Quiche

When you ask my son if he likes eggs, he will emphatically reply, “NO!”. If you ask him what he would like to have for dinner, he will often say, “That yummy quiche with the spinach and smoked gouda in it.” Isn’t that funny? I love sneaking eggs into his diet with a meal that my whole family loves. This quick and easy quiche has a unique and creamy texture from the smoked gouda. The flavor is delightful and I serve it with fried apples or a fresh fruit salad.

1  refrigerated pie crust (I use Pillsbury)

1  tablespoon olive oil

1/2  cup thinly sliced green onions (green and white parts)

3  cups fresh baby spinach

3  large eggs, lightly beaten

1  cup milk (I use 2%)

3/4  cup (3 ounces) grated smoked gouda

3/4  teaspoon salt

dash of nutmeg

 

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add green onions and sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach and sauté 2 more minutes.

Combine eggs, milk, and remaining ingredients in a bowl; stir well with a whisk. Stir in spinach and onion mixture. Pour filling into crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes (40 minutes if you prefer a firmer texture).
