Savory Spinach Quiche: A Delectable Brunch Recipe

Tracy Hilton here from Food and Meal, excited to share with you one of my favorite savory brunch recipes – the classic Spinach Quiche!

I’ve always loved a good quiche. There’s something so satisfying about that rich, velvety egg custard paired with your choice of mix-ins. And this Spinach Quiche is one of my all-time favorites. I first tried it at a little French cafe while on vacation and fell in love with the combination of tender spinach and melty Gruyère cheese in the luscious egg base.

When I returned home, recreating that quiche became my new mission. I tested all kinds of variations, adjusting the spice blend and trying different cheese and veggie combinations until I landed on this perfect version. Now it’s my go-to dish to make for brunch gatherings with friends or just a cozy weekend meal.

The great thing about quiche is how versatile it is. Once you have the basic custard down, you can reinvent it endlessly. I love using seasonal vegetables like sweet peppers or zucchini in the summer. But this spinach version remains my favorite for its classic flavor.

Cooking Tips for Perfect Spinach Quiche

The key to a perfect quiche in my opinion is pre-cooking the spinach. This eliminates excess moisture that could make your custard watery. I like to quickly sauté the spinach with some minced garlic and onion to enhance the flavor before adding it to the egg mixture.

When making the custard, it’s important to temper the eggs so they gently cook instead of scrambling. Slowly whisk in the heated cream a little at a time to the beaten eggs before returning everything to the pot. Taking your time here pays off in the smooth, silky texture.

And don’t overlook blind-baking your pie crust! This extra step prevents a soggy bottom and helps the quiche slice beautifully. Line the hot crust with parchment and pie weights before baking. When golden, remove the weights and finish baking the quiche.
