Crustless Spinach & Potato Quiche



As I am typing this, there is some crazy shopping going on.  Just checking Facebook quick, it seems like everyone I know is out there or already back home!

I do enjoy Black Friday shopping, but not this year.  Taking two kids out?  Are you crazy?  I personally cringe at those mothers that drag their little ones out and fill up the aisles with their strollers.  It just isn't a place for kids in my opinion - too nuts.  And this year, I vying to take a simpler approach to the holidays.  You can read about it here.

So, if you aren't out there, already back home or plan to tackle more shopping this weekend, come home to this quiche.  It can be made ahead and popped into the oven and eaten thirty minutes later.  Not to mention it's pretty darn healthy!


Crustless Spinach & Potato Quiche
6 eggs
1/2 c. milk
1 large potato, diced into small chunks
1/2 box spinach, thawed and drained
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 t. pepper
1 t. salt
1 c. sharp cheddar cheese

Spray a pie pan with cooking spray and preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Meanwhile in a skillet cook potatoes on medium high heat, turning edges brown.  Put in garlic when potatoes have cooked a bit.  (You do not have to cook the potatoes fully, just so they get a little crispy with some color, they will finish cooking in the oven).

In a bowl whisk eggs, milk, spinach, salt and pepper.  Combine with potatoes and garlic.  Pour into pie pan and sprinkle with cheese.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.  Letting it cool slightly before slicing.
