Ingredients

    1 9-inch pie crust (I use Jiffy pie crust mix, so that's what the nutrition is calculated for)
    1 c. crumbled feta cheese
    10 oz. spinach (fresh or frozen)
    3 large eggs
    1/2 c. to 2/3 c. milk
    1/4 tsp. grated nutmeg
    1/2 tsp. dried oregano (or 1-1/2 tsp. fresh, chopped)
    1 T. dried chives (or 3 T. fresh, chopped)
    1 medium tomato, thinly sliced (7 or 8 slices)
    2 T. shredded parmesan cheese, optional

Directions

Place spinach (and a tablespoon water, if using fresh spinach) in dutch oven over medium heat. Cook till spinach is thawed (or wilted) and excess liquid has evaporated.


While spinach cooks, roll out crust and place in 10" tart or pie pan. Trim edges flush with the top of the pan.


Beat eggs, milk, nutmeg, oregano, and chives till well combined.


To assemble the quiche, spread crumbled feta over the bottom of crust in an even layer. Spread spinach over feta. Gently pour egg mixture evenly over spinach. Lay tomato slices on top of egg mixture and sprinkle with parmesan.


Bake quiche at 350 deg. F. for 40-50 minutes. I generally split this into four servings for breakfast, so that's what the nutrition info is calculated out to, but this also makes a great appetizer or light snack in smaller portions. You can also make this into a fritatta, just omit crust, spray tart pan very well with olive oil, and assemble ingredients according to directions.
