Of all the different varieties of quiche out there, spinach is my absolute favorite. Whether it’s for brunch, lunch, or dinner, there is just something about its understated simplicity that makes it a timeless classic. This version is as easy as it gets and delivers the most custardy, cheesy result you could hope for.
Does Spinach Need to Be Cooked Before Putting It in a Quiche?
This recipe calls for either fresh baby spinach or thawed frozen chopped spinach. Whichever you choose to use, neither need to be cooked before adding them to the custard filling. While the thawed frozen spinach is already cooked, the fresh spinach will cook in the heat of the oven.
What Is the Best Cheese to Use for Spinach Quiche?
A great quiche is as much about the vegetable you add to it as it is the cheese you use. Here, we opt for sharp cheddar, which lends a salty bite to offset the richness of the custard, yet it is still nice and melty. Feel free to experiment with the cheese — smoked Gouda provides an even bolder, nuttier flavor, while Fontina gives added creaminess.
