What is quiche?

Quiche is basically an egg tart. It hails from France, where most beautiful pastries come from, but is filled with savory goodies unlike most of the sweet and sugary treats that come in pastry form. You can make a quiche with pretty much any kind of filling, some of the more popular ones being veggies, bacon and ham, or even seafood. This recipe is a mixture of three very popular quiches- quiche au fromage (quiche with cheese), quiche aux champignons (quiche with mushrooms) and quiche florentine (quiche with spinach). Put them all together and we have this incredible Goat Cheese and Veggie Quiche!

Tips for making this Goat Cheese and Veggie Quiche

Using pre-made pie dough is my big time saver! I use Pillsbury Pie Crust but if you wanted to make your own crust here is a great recipe by Confetti and Bliss.

If using pre-made pie dough, don’t forget to follow the instructions on the box and let it sit out for 20 minutes to soften up! This will prevent it from breaking and ultimately make it easier to work with.

Don’t forget to blind bake your crust, too! It’s important to crisp up the bottom before you put all the liquids inside, or else you will get a soggy bottom. No one likes a soggy bottom!

Bake with your eyes. Check on your quiche periodically.Once it’s finished you will see some golden brown areas and it will look solidified but still have a little wobble.

Ingredients you’ll need

  • Pre-made pie crust
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic
  • Mushrooms
  • Spinach
  • Green Onions
  • Buttermilk or Half and Half
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Mozzarella Cheese
  • Goat Cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper

How to make this Goat Cheese and Veggie Quiche

Preheat oven to 400°F. Roll out pie crust with rolling pin to a little bigger than the pie dish. Drape your crust over your rolling pin and use that to get your crust into the pie dish. Press dough into dish and cut off any excess. Blind bake the crust for about 10 minutes or until it starts to turn golden. Remove from oven and allow time to cool.

While your crust is blind baking, heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Sauté garlic until fragrant, then add mushrooms. Cook mushrooms down for 5 minutes, then add your spinach. I like to season this part with salt as well, but it’s not necessary. Once mushrooms and spinach are cooked down, about 10 minutes total, remove from pan and allow to cool slightly.

In a medium bowl, whisk eggs, buttermilk, chives, salt and pepper. Mix in the mozzarella, parmesan and goat cheese. Once the crust is cool, add the mushroom and spinach mixture. Pour the egg and cheese mixture over the top, and make sure it’s combined neatly. Transfer to the oven and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until golden brown with a slight wobble in the middle. Let cool on a cooling sheet for at least 10 minutes before serving warm.
