Quiche // Brunch recipe {FFAY #2}

Quiche brunch recipe

Brunch: I heart you so. Not only because we wake up late enough to actually enjoy eating Brunch on a daily basis, but also because it's so fancy, right? And maybe because it's also the perfect excuse to drink champagne with your orange juice ;)

My mom makes the best quiche. It's light and fluffy and oh so flavorful. The flavor combinations are super adaptable (think bacon or Gruyere cheese) but my favorite one is this spinach and mushroom beauty. Enjoy!

Spinach and Mushroom Quiche
My mom's tried-and-true quiche recipe.
  • 1 frozen pie shell
  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup diced white mushrooms
  • half an onion, minced
  • 1 5-ounce bag chopped fresh spinach
  • 2 cloves diced garlic
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste
1. Preheat oven to 350 F 
2. Add 2 Tablespoons of butter to skillet and saute mushrooms until golden brown. Add to pie shell. 
3. In same skillet, add the remaining 2 Tablespoons butter and onions and saute until translucent. 
4. Add minced garlic and fresh chopped spinach and saute until wilted down. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add to pie shell and mix with mushrooms. 
5. Sprinkle cheese on top of spinach and mushroom mixture. 
6. In a bowl, mix together the 4 eggs and cup of milk and pour on top of spinach, mushroom and cheese mixture inside the pie shell. If you want, go ahead and sprinkle a little extra cheese on top, I won't tell. 
7. Bake quiche until top is golden brown about 45-60 minutes, depending on your oven. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing and enjoy!

Refrigerate covered leftovers and they will last up to 4 days, but I really don't think that will be happening.

  1. Yum! I'm not a fan of mushrooms but I love the spinach and cheese combo! I've totally been known to make this sort of quiche for dinner too... Why not!?!

  2. Ooh this looks yum!! I've never tried making quiche myself. I have a salad recipe today. I might just have to link up :)

  3. That looks so good! I love mushrooms, but Drew does not so I don't get to make something with them often. He would love spinach, bacon, sausage or anything like that.

  4. I have never made quiche before but I am going to have to try this, it looks so yummy!

  5. This looks so delicious! Surprisingly, my almost three year old loves mushrooms so she would love this!! Thanks for the recipe :)

    1. Im impressed she likes mushrooms! My oldest is so picky but my toddler eats EVERYTHING lol. Enjoy!

  6. I have never made a quiche, but this one looks delicious! Yum!

  7. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering! Quiche is one thing I've never made, but I just pinned this and I hope to make it soon!!

  8. Mr. Loves quiches, I'm not a huge fan only because I don't really like scrambled eggs...but I bet with cheese and mushrooms I might change my mind!

  9. Mouth is watering! That looks delish!

  10. Quiche is one of my FAVORITE foods, and something we so rarely have!! Your combo sounds amazing (give me alllllll the mushrooms), but I know Scott would appreciate more bacon and less veggies. ;)
    Totally going to give this a shot the next time we host brunch.
    And, it's always a good time for mimosas. Just saying. :)

  11. I love that this is your mom's tried and true recipe! That means it has to be great!
