I don't like eggs.  I've tried them scrambled, fried, and boiled and I just don't love them.  However, I love quiche.  Probably because there is so much else added in you don't just taste the eggs.  I often need eggs for something I'm baking and most cakes and breads only use a few so I end up with extra eggs.  What is a person who doesn't like eggs do?  I either hard boil them for my husband to have as an after workout snack or I make quiche.  Quiche is one of my favorite egg dishes.

Many people complain that quiche isn't filling (check out my rant on Quiche) but they must be eating the wrong quiche.  This quiche is incredibly filling and delicious.  It's packed with marinated artichoke hearts, spinach, Monterey Jack cheese, and turkey breakfast sausage.  It's terrific and filling enough for any meal.

Quiche not filling? You're eating the wrong quiche. [Tweet this]

Spinach Artichoke Quiche


Ingredients:

1/2 pound ground turkey breakfast sausage
2 cups artichoke heart quarters
2 cups frozen spinach
5-6 eggs
1 cup milk
1-2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
2 Tbsp granulated garlic or garlic powder
2 Tbsp dried minced onions
Salt and pepper to taste
1 pie crust (I used Easy Pie Crust)

Preheat oven to 450F.

Line the pie crust with a double thickness of foil and bake at 450F for 8 minutes.  Uncover and continue to bake for 3-5 minutes more.  Remove crust from oven and lower oven temperature to 325F.

Brown and crumble the sausage over medium heat in a large fry pan until cooked through.  Allow to cool and remove to a large bowl.

Thaw spinach and squeeze out excess moisture.  Place spinach and artichokes in a food processor and pulse a few times until roughly chopped (or chop them by hand).  Add to the bowl of turkey.

To the bowl with turkey, spinach, and artichokes add the eggs, milk, and the rest of the ingredients.  Beat until well mixed then pour into prepared pie crust.

Bake at 325F for 45-60 minutes until set and browned on top (a knife inserted in the center will come out clean).

Remove from oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving.  Makes 1 8-9 inch quiche.  Serves 6-8.

Enjoy.
