Spinach Zucchini Quiche

A delicious quiche was served at my baby shower brunch last weekend and I couldn’t stop thinking about it all week…so we decided to make one for breakfast this morning. It came out so great I had to share the recipe!

very loosely based on Speedy Spinach Quiche
from Epicurious.com

1Tbs butter
1 shallot, chopped
1 clove garlic, diced
3C spinach
1/2 zucchini, diced

1 9-inch refrigerated ready pie crust (1/2 box)
1 Tsp all purpose flour
6 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C grated Parmesan
4 eggs
1/2 C milk
1/2 Tsp salt
1/4 Tsp pepper

Melt butter in heavy medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add shallot, zucchini, and garlic, sauté until softened, about 8 minutes. Add spinach and stir until spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes. Cool slightly.

Preheat oven to 375°F. Dust 1 side of crust with flour. Transfer to 9-inch-diameter quiche dish or pie pan, floured side down. Press into pan, sealing any cracks. Trim edges. Sprinkle both cheeses over bottom of crust. Top with cooled spinach mixture. Beat eggs, milk, salt, and pepper, in large bowl to blend. Pour over spinach. Bake until filling is set, about 50 minutes. Cool slightly. Cut into wedges and serve.
