A nice quiche can be served either for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner, it's such a versatile dish. This walnut, feta and spinach quiche is quite delicious and features a good balance of flavor and texture. Of course this quiche could be varied endlessly: other nice additions or substitutions for the quiche would be black olives, blue cheese, different types of greens, tomatoes, peppers etc...


See instructions for making the pie dough...

Blind bake the pie dough in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes. 

Whisk together the eggs and half-and-half. Add some salt and pepper. 

Make sure the spinach is well thawed, squeeze out any water. Chop up the walnuts roughly and cut up the cheese.

Assemble the pie:

Distribute the spinach, walnuts and feta on the dough. Pour over the egg batter. Bake in a 350 degree F for about 30-40 min. 

Let the quiche sit for at least 15 minutes to settle before cutting into it.
