Greek Quiche

Greek Quiche

I recently went to the mall to have lunch and hang out with some moms in my mom’s group. We breezed all around the mall with out strollers as a fun way to get out of the house in these intense winter. (NO MORE SNOW PLEASE!!) I’m sure it was funny to see a pack of 6 moms and their babies walking around the mall.

Well, before I left I ran into Sur la Table to get some fun things to play around with. I need more bakeware and napkins like I need a hole in my head! But I couldn’t resist and got this pie plate. Well, 2 actually… I ‘needed’ 1 in white and 1 in a color. Totally justified! ha!

So I put my new pie plate to good use with this Greek Quiche.

When I went to Greece a few years ago I really fell in love with spanakopita, feta, and Greek Salads (which are not like the ones you get from pizzeria here). Oh, I had some of the best feta while I was there. Since then I have been insistent on buying feta in a block and in brine since then. It really makes a big difference in texture, moisture, and flavor.

Anyway, instead of something sweet this week for this week’s edition, I decided to go with something savory. I was thinking back to my trip to Greece and was craving spanakopita recently so I decided to take those flavors and incorporate that into a quiche.

We eat so much quiche at home that I’m always thinking of new ways to change things up. I try it with different meats, vegetables, and cheeses to try different flavor combinations. By making it with spinach, feta, oregano, and the slices of tomato you can really enjoy your favorite Greek flavors right at home for breakfast!

Make this quiche and you’ll enjoy a piece of Greece right at home!
