With Mother’s Day being yesterday, I had every intention of making this spinach and goat cheese quiche for my Mom to take home to enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Sadly, her refrigerator died.

She did enjoy a slice while she was here and the first thing she said after she finished eating was “I want that recipe!”

 

this is goat cheese and spinach quiche

Ingredients Needed to Make Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche

  • canned potatoes – yes, I know it’s weird, but they are fully cooked and delicious and substitute the typical pie crust
  • baby spinach (feel free to add more veggies!)
  • eggs
  • milk (I used skim milk, but any milk will do)
  • goat cheese (I am in love with Meredith Dairy Goat Cheese found at Costco – worth every penny!) Click here for a store locator near you.
  • bacon (feel free to use crumbled cooked sausage

Spinach and Goat Cheese Quiche

Yield: 4 servings (1/2 of pie plate)
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes

This light and fluffy spinach and goat cheese quiche is so good. Just a bit of bacon and goat cheese really kicks this up a notch. My mom would have preferred onions in here, so please feel free to add.

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1.5 cups skim milk
  • 2 ounces goat cheese, crumbled
  • 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups canned sliced potatoes
  • 3 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

    Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

    Drain the canned sliced potatoes and pat them dry with paper towels. Spray a pie pan with avocado oil spray, and lay the potatoes in a layer to make a potato crust.

    Prepare the Filling: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, skim milk, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper until well combined.

    Assemble the Quiche: Sprinkle the chopped baby spinach over the potatoes. Scatter the crumbled goat cheese and bacon on top.

    Pour the Egg Mixture: Slowly pour the egg and milk mixture over the spinach, potatoes, and goat cheese in the pie crust. Make sure the filling is evenly distributed.

    Bake: Place the quiche in the preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the center is set. You can test the doneness by inserting a knife into the center – it should come out clean when the quiche is done.

    Cool and Serve: Remove the quiche from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy your spinach and goat cheese quiche!

    Feel free to adjust the seasoning or add other ingredients like sautéed onions or mushrooms for extra flavor!

Notes

This has a very mild flavor, so next time I’ll add a bit of crushed red pepper to kick it up a bit.  But love that my Momma gave it two thumbs up!  Do you love goat cheese?  Check out my 10 minute goat cheese with gnocchi – so good!
