A few years ago, my mother made me this spinach quiche during our pre-Christmas celebrations. I loved it immediately. Since then, she has also made it for street parties, and the dish has become a hit. Everyone loves it!

6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • 500 grams spinach, chopped
  • 150 grams aged cheese, grated
  • 8 eggs
  • 6-8 sheets puff pastry
  • 200 milliliters crème fraîche
  • 50 grams butter
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Equipment

  • Spatula
  • Baking dish
  • Deep cooking pan
  • Mixing bowl
  • Fork, for mixing the eggs
  • Pastry brush, for brushing the olive oil/butter on the baking dish

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C.
  2. Wash and chop the spinach.
  3. Boil some water in a kettle (not too much, not too little).
  4. Place the chopped spinach in a deep pan and pour the boiled water over it. Cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  5. In a bowl, add the eggs and stir. Add the grated cheese, salt and pepper, and mix.
  6. Brush the baking dish with olive oil and/or butter. Spread the puff pastry down in the greased oven dish.
  7. When the spinach is finished cooking, add it to the egg and cheese mixture. Stir until well mixed.
  8. Pour the mixture over the puff pastry.
  9. Bake for about 45 minutes. When it is cooked, the quiche will be stiff. Use a fork to check.

Variations

  • Instead of buying grated cheese, you could grate a block of cheese yourself.
  • Instead of aged cheese, you can try other kinds of cheeses.
  • Instead of using olive oil and/or butter, you can also use baking paper.

Thanks. Yes, it tastes very nice. It is the light brown thing under the quiche.

Thanks for sharing your spinach quiche recipe with us. I have never used puff pastry for a crust. It would be very flakey and delicious.
