Meatless Monday – Spinach, Mushroom & Feta Quiche

As you may know I am NOT a morning person.  I stay in bed until the last possible moment and often (who am I kidding – ALWAYS) run out the door without taking the time to eat breakfast or even pack anything to take with me.  This week’s Meatless Monday recipe is one that will provide me with some leftovers to enjoy – for breakfast the rest of the week – but it was also enough to have a nice, filling meal – once I added some veggies as a side. The original recipe (found via Pinterest) was located HERE.

Gather those ingredients:

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 box frozen spinach
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 oz. feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • Salt/Pepper to taste (I don’t add a lot of salt to my cooking so I didn’t put any in my version

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  If your spinach isn’t already thawed, thaw it in the microwave and then place it in a colander to drain. Slice your mushrooms into thin slices.  Then put them in a cooking spray-coated skillet with your garlic and some pepper.  Heat until they have sweat out all the moisture, approximately 5-7 minutes.

Next, squeeze out the excess moisture from the spinach and put into a coated pie dish.  Then layer on your mushroom mixture and the feta cheese.

Now, mix together your eggs, then add in the milk and Parmesan cheese.

Pour the mixture on top of the spinach, mushrooms and feta.  Then top with the mozzarella cheese and place pie plate onto a baking tray (to make oven transfer easier)

Cook in your 350 degree oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.  Your eggs should be fully cooked and the cheese a golden brown. Next, slice and serve!

This recipe is definitely a home run for me.  Look at all that spinach and cheesy goodness! Can’t wait to have a nice warm breakfast for the rest of the week!
