Description

My husband absolutely loves quiche. There are so many different variations, and when I saw this one that included smoked gouda, I knew it would be a winner.


Ingredients

Units Scale

Crust:

  • 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons 1% low-fat milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 5.6 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/4 cups)

Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup 1% low-fat milk
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated smoked Gouda cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash of grated nutmeg
  • 3 large eggs

Instructions

  1. 1. To prepare crust, place butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Combine milk, salt, and egg yolk in a small bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add milk mixture to butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour; beat just until combined. Press mixture into a 4-inch circle on plastic wrap; cover. Chill for 1 hour.
  2. 2. Preheat oven to 350°.
  3. 3. Unwrap and place chilled dough on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough into a 10-inch circle. Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate. Freeze 15 minutes. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.
  4. 4. To prepare filling, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach; sauté 2 minutes.
  5. 5. Combine 1 cup milk and remaining ingredients in a bowl; stir well with a whisk. Stir in spinach mixture. Pour filling into crust. Bake at 350° for 35 minutes. Cut into 10 wedges.

Notes

Recipe from Cooking Light August 2010

Cooking Light’s tip:
We like the creamy, custardy consistency of this quiche when it’s baked for 35 minutes. If you prefer a firmer texture, bake an additional 5 minutes.
