Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 1 (10 ounce) box frozen chopped spinach thawed
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cups milk
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

Instructions

  • Place a medium sized frying pan over medium-low heat. Add olive oil and swirl in the pan. Add the onions and cook, stirring often, until they’re brown and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from heat to cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a quiche pan (or 9-inch pie pan or square baking dish) with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Remove spinach from box and place in several layers of paper towels or a clean kitchen towel. Squeeze out all the water from the spinach. Remove towel.
  • Whisk eggs and milk until frothy. Stir in the spinach, onions, cheese, salt, and pepper.
  • Pour into prepared pan. Bake 35-45 minutes, or until it’s browned and no longer jiggly. (If you have an instant thermometer, it should read about 170°F internal temperature when it’s done.)
  • Cool slightly then serve. Store leftovers in refrigerator. Best eaten the day it’s made.

Notes

  • Be sure to remove all the excess water from the spinach when squeezing it.
  • Use any cheese you like!
  • Quiche is done when it's lightly golden, no longer wet, and jiggles when tapped (instead of rolling like waves).
