Ingredients
  • 1 (9-inch) deep dish frozen pie crust
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • ½ cup shallots, thinly sliced
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ¼ cup whipping cream
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • ⅛ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup (4 oz) Gruy√®re, grated
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, defrosted and wrung free of water
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Thaw pie crust at room temperature until just soft enough to easily prick with a fork, about 10 minutes. Prick bottom and sides with a fork. Bake on center rack until golden, about 10-15 minutes. Set aside and turn oven down to 325 degrees F.
  3. Heat butter in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Once hot, add shallots and cook until soft and translucent, about 8 minutes; set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, heavy cream, nutmeg, salt and cayenne pepper.
  5. Place cooked pie shell on a baking sheet. Spread shallots over bottom of cooked crust, then sprinkle grated Gruyere over top. Scatter spinach evenly over cheese, then slowly pour egg mixture over top.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 55-65 minutes until quiche is set and top is lightly golden. Serve hot or warm.
