Caramelized Onion & Spinach Quiche

Jump to recipe

I’d never made a quiche before this. My mom used to make them every so often and I wasn’t too fond of them. The egg, bacon, and onion combination didn’t sit right with me.

This one is completely different. Sweet caramelized onions, sharp Gruyère, vibrant green flecks of wilted spinach. Together they are absolutely marvelous.

This is based on a recipe from Simply Recipes. I lightened it up a bit and tried to make it a little healthier. To start, the crust is made with white whole wheat flour. I had half and half leftover from the parsnip soup so I used that instead of heavy cream, replaced one of the eggs with 2 egg whites, and cut the amount of cheese by about half. I also threw in about half a bag of spinach.

    I used this recipe, only with store-bought pie crusts because I ran out of time to make pastry dough. It still came out delicious. The addition of nutmeg was new to me, but I will be using it again! Thanks!
