Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche for Breakfast

Somewhere, someone told me that making quiche was hard, and that’s why people don’t have quiche very often anymore.  When I grew up and started branching out with my kitchen skills, quiche was something that I wanted to make.  Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche was one of my favorite blends of bright and savory ingredients in a fluffy egg base.  And you know what I found out?  Making quiche is as easy as making a pie crust.  Whether you make your own crust or buy one in the refrigerated section, Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche is a versatile breakfast that is super easy to get to the table.

Fresh Ingredients for Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche

I start with my homemade pie crust.  It’s super simple and has a lot of wonderful flaky flavor.  Then I start layering savory and salty in the crust.  I caramelize red onions in a bit of olive oil, then when they are about a minute from being done, I toss in my spinach to wilt it and drive off any extra water.  Who wants a watery quiche?  Ew.  That gets placed on the bottom of the crust.  I top that with crumbled goat cheese.  If you’ve never had goat cheese, it has a wonderful tangy, salty flavor that gives the Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche a deep, delicious flavor.  If you have some fresh tarragon or thyme, they would both go perfectly in Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche.
