My fridge is fixed and so is my icemaker. I hate the ridiculous charge, but I am glad to have my fridge back. I decided to make a few things today in celebration of having a place to keep cold items again. I pulled several fresh spinach quiche recipes off the web, but didn't really like any of them. So once again I have adjusted recipes to make my own. ( I bought spinach on sale yesterday for $1.00 so I had to use it today before it went all wilty on me.) So here is my recipe and boy it is buttery and yummy good.
1 stick of butter
1 small white onion, peeled and finely chopped
1 1/2 tsp garlic pepper (you could use fresh garlic-probably a clove or 2)
1 pkg fresh spinach-pre washed and ready to eat
1/2 tsp sea salt
In a 3 quart pot, melt butter on medium heat. Add chopped onion and garlic pepper (fresh garlic). Cook a few minutes to soften. Add sea salt and paprika. Put fresh spinach in and stir to coat with butter. Reduce heat to low and cover your pot. Steam for about 5 minutes then remove from heat. In a small bowl whisk eggs and cream. Add pepper and nutmeg to egg mixture. Place 3/4 cup cheese in bottom of dish. Spoon the spinach mixture on top of cheese-including the butter. Place the chopped ham on next. Pour egg mixture over spinach and ham layers. Top with remaining cheese and bake for 20-25 minutes. Let set for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with fresh chopped tomatoes or with toast and fruit. Wow this had amazing flavor and the fresh spinach and butter really makes this good. I don't think I would substitute fake butter or frozen spinach.
