Katrina's Story

This is the best spinach quiche I have ever had. I usually make my own crust, but if you want a faster, easier quiche I am sure a purchased pastry shell will do the job.

This is incredibly good even warmed in the microwave as leftovers.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A perfect blending of flavors... a scrumptious quiche! This makes for an impressive presentation, ideal for a special occasion brunch or luncheon.

you are gonna love it! I promise. It's my only blue ribbon and I think I won it by the photo. Back when I first came to this site I won a ribbon right off. Haven't had any luck since, but this recipe is deserving if I must say so myself
