A friend of mine says the unsophisticated ingredients disqualify this recipe from being a TRUE quiche, but it's got eggs, spinach, cheese, and a pie crust, so you tell me! Whatever it is, it's delicious, and my picky kids even eat it!

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Chill the pie crust at least 20 minutes before baking to prevent shrinkage.
  2. Prick the pie crust with a fork and line with a double layer of aluminum foil and a layer of pie weights or dried beans. Bake in the preheated oven until edge of crust is golden, about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and weights and bake until the crust has set, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Cook and stir the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with the salt, pepper, and nutmeg until smooth. Whisk in the heavy cream, followed by the spinach and the beef mixture. Pour into the prepared pie crust and sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

ALERT - their must be a typo in the recipe, should only be one 10 oz box of frozen spinach. Otherwise, GREAT dinner. I used a pre-made pie crust (thawed overnight in fridge) and barely fit the mix with just one box of spinach included (two boxes would have been crazy). Very filling and yummy

this was really good... I didn't have spinach on hand, but I did have chopped broccoli which made a wonderful substitution.

This turned out tasty with some modifications. I added about a cup of mashed butternut squash to add more veg. Ended up using 3 eggs to boost the protein some more. I put the ground beef and veg mixture into the bottom of the pie pan, sprinkled the cheese, and poured on the eggs and milk. I added the seasonings in and added some red pepper too, into the meat mixture while it was cooing.Also forgot to prebake the crust, but it turned out fine baking @ 375 for 1 hour. Overall, really yummy. I am just awful at following a recipe as written. ;)
