A quiche is a type of pie that includes eggs, cream or milk, cheese, and various meats, fish, or vegetables. It is common in French cuisine and is usually baked in a pastry crust. A quiche can be a main dish, side dish, brunch item, or lunch item. The most popular type of quiche is the quiche Lorraine, which traditionally includes bacon or lardons, Gruyère cheese, and onions.
One untruth about quiche is that it is a strictly French dish. Although quiche has its origins in the Lorraine region of France, it has been adopted and adapted by many other countries, particularly in Europe and North America. The quiche has been a popular dish in Germany, Belgium, and other countries for centuries, and it has been adopted as a staple dish in many countries. So, quiche is not only a French dish but it’s also a international one.

Preheat the oven to 425°F (190°C). And heat the crust in a cast iron skillet or pie pan for 10 minutes or until it browns
Roll out the pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Press it against the bottom and sides of the dish and trim the edges.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms and sauté for 5-7 minutes, or until softened. Add the spinach and sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until wilted.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, heavy cream/milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg (if using). Stir in the mushroom and spinach mixture.
Pour the egg mixture into the prepared crust.
Bake the quiche for 15 minutes @ 350 degrees then top with cheddar cheese and for an additional 35-40 minutes, or until the center is set and the crust is golden brown. Let it cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.
This quiche can be served warm or cold. Enjoy!
