Quiche with a Self-Forming Crust

A quick, nourishing, and satisfying meal that can be eaten warm, room temperature, or even cold!

This is a savory dish consisting of a pastry crust that is filled with eggs, milk, onions, red bell peppers, fresh spinach, cheddar cheese and seasoned with nutmeg. Yum! It tends to take your breakfast to the next level. Everyone will think you spent hours in the kitchen slaving away, when you really only spent a very short time.

I don’t know about you but during this busy holiday season, I’m all for making a quick and easy nutritious meal. That’s why I love this self-crusting quiche that forms itself by the addition of flour and a bit of baking powder. It creates its own darkened crust right in the oven while it’s baking. It’s a real time-saver and it comes together in just a short time.

Note: Did you know that spinach is available all year round but is in season during the spring (March – June). It is well known for its remarkable ability to restore energy, increase vitality, and improve the quality of the blood. Spinach produces such results, primarily the fact that it is rich in iron. Iron plays a central role in the function of red blood cells which help in transporting oxygen around the body, in energy production. Spinach is also an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C, and folate as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, and vitamin B2. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach.
