Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Angela Gray


I started making this recipe many years ago when I was a newlywed. And somewhere down the line I lost it and have been trying to recreate it ever since. Well, tonight I came across my mother in laws recipe box and I found it! She loved this quiche and had copied it from my original recipe. My mother and father in law have both since passed away, so I am dedicating this recipe to them. Miss you Bea and Zane...

How to Make Spinach and Mushroom Quiche


  • 1Start with your crust: In a medium bowl mix flour and salt. With a pastry blender or fork cut in the 6 Tbs. of margarine until it resembles coarse meal. With a fork stir in the 3 or 4 Tbs. of ice water just until dough holds together .
  • 2With your hands, press dough onto bottom and sides of a 9'inch tart pan (with removable bottom). Refrigerate crust till ready to fill.
