Ham, Spinach, & Goat Cheese Quiche

I love quiche. And I honestly don’t see the point of putting a crust on a quiche. Don’t get me wrong, I love pie crust, but I just think it gets in the way of a great quiche. Plus, by skipping the pie crust, a quiche becomes as easy to make as making scrambled eggs.

Ham, Spinach, Goat Cheese, and Bell Pepper Quiche

This is the third quiche that I’ve posted on here. And I think it’s my favorite. In all honesty, it’s no surprise since it’s really a combination of the previous two recipes. Hubby was extremely excited that the recipe made two quiches so he could eat the leftovers all week long.

Ham, Spinach, Goat Cheese, and Bell Pepper Quiche

You could really use any combination of meat, vegetables, and cheese that you like or have on hand. I love using red bell peppers in quich (or anything, really). They’re full of flavor and brighten up any dish.

Ham, Spinach, Goat Cheese, and Bell Pepper Quiche

Yield: Two 9" Quiches

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp butter
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic
1 10 oz package chopped frozen spinach, defrosted and drained
Two 8 oz packages diced ham (or 16 oz leftover ham, diced)
2 bell peppers
6 eggs
3/4 cup milk
6 oz plain greek yogurt
1/4 tsp freshly ground nutmeg
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup shredded cheese (such as Gruyere)
1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese (or other cheese of your preference)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease two pie plates.

Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet or dutch oven. Add onion and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the ham and spinach. Cook until heated through, another 5 minutes. Add the bell peppers and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, yogurt, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Stir in the cheeses.

Add the vegetable mixture to the egg mixture and stir to combine.

Divide into two pie plates. Bake for 40 minutes or until set.

    I will definitely try these. But that’s not why I wrote. I wanted to tell you that I’m proud of you for taking off time to be with your family. It may or may not have been a difficult decision. That doesn’t matter – It was the right thing to do. While you didn’t ask my permission, you didn’t need to. You have my unmitigated support.

    Now go enjoy. Just remember to put your feet up now and then and if anyone volunteers, accept their offer without guilt. It will not only give you a break, you will likely have the perfect chance to bond with (and love) your helpers.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Love pomegranates, and I love Brussels Sprouts, so I can’t wait to try this recipe. My boyfriend doesn’t have the same love affair with Brussels Sprouts as I do, but I’m hoping this will help change his mind. Thanks!

      This is definitely a recipe that could change the tune of a non-brussels-sprouts lover. Let me know how it goes.
