- Place the pie crust in a preheated oven for 5 minutes. This allows the crust and filling to cook evenly and not become soggy.
2. In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Sautee the onions and spinach until onion begins to become translucent. About 5 minutes.
3. At the bottom of the pie crust, that has been baked for 5 minutes, layer the vegetables. Layer the mushrooms and bell peppers evenly along the bottom.
4. Next layer the sautéed onions and spinach on top of the sliced mushrooms and bell peppers.
5. Then, layer the shredded cheddar cheese on top of the vegetables. Set aside to prepare the egg filling.
6. In a medium sized mixing bowl, crack the eggs and whisk together the milk and eggs. Whisk for 2 minutes until fully incorporated. We like to use an electric hand mixer for this step.
7. Pour the mixed egg and milk mixture over the top of the pie crust with vegetables and cheese.
8. Place in the oven for 40-45 minutes, or until the egg is set in the center.
9. Serve immediately, or cool and refrigerate or freeze for later.
Hint: Be sure to pre-cook the pie crust for about 5 minutes. This helps the crust cook evenly with the quiche and doesn't leave you with soggy crust.
