the perfect Quiche

Hello! And welcome to E2g’s weekly series Dinner Dilemma.  Dinner Dilemma is the place where I share all my “goto” dinners.  All of the recipes in this series are tried and true family favorites.  Have you come to the end of the road when it comes to what to make for dinner?
Look no further! Dinner Dilemma to the rescue!

IMG_2166One of our favorite meals is quiche.  Everyone in my home loves it.  One of the reasons I love it is because it’s an easy one dish meal!  I’ve made quiche forever, just a simple recipe with eggs, half and half and cheese and what ever else I had on hand leftover bacon, mushrooms, onion, carrots, spinach you name it, it would get tossed in.  Then a little over a year ago I bought the Savory Sweet Life cookbook by Alice Currah (psst if you don’t have it you should) and I made her Spinach Ricotta Quiche, it was pretty much life changing for our whole family.  The ricotta is the kicker for this quiche, it makes it light and it gives it that extra pizzazz!  The ricotta quite simply makes this the perfect quiche.

IMG_2161I make my version of this quiche at least once a month.  One just isn’t enough for us so I make two, the leftovers are easily eaten for after school snacks or for breakfast the next day.  Quiche never ever goes uneaten round these parts!

IMG_2158So here’s my version. It’s easily cut in half if need be so don’t let the two pie thing scare you!




IMG_2173On busy nights this meal is perfect.  It’s packed with good things and my kids can eat at different times if we need to, quiche is perfect served at  room temperature.  If I have time I add some greens or some fruit on the side (psssst this also make for a great brunch menu!).

I hope you’re staying out of the cold!

to your table with love, Sheila

    Looks great! I’m putting it on the menu next week. Do you have a good pie crust recipe? I always want to make my own, but never do, so I’m not so experienced with that. Yours looks beautiful!!

    I make quiche often but I’ve never put ricotta in. I’m dying to give this a try!

    Ricotta, huh? I’m so trying that. I usually put sour cream in the bottom of mine but it’s not all that figure friendly. I’ll have to try it next time I make quiche- the perfect go to dinner that can also be made ahead- hooray!!

    I make crutless Quiches in tart dishes usualy steam spinach but may try it raw
    They look beautifully full and fluffy when done but when they sit little while they flatten
    Any helpful hints?
