  • 1/2 large white onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 c overflowing, fresh spinach
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1/4 c pizza, or Italian, or any type of your favorite cheese blend
  • 1 tbsp. EVOO
  • 1/3 c milk (1%, 2% or heavy cream)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 frozen pie crust
  • 1/3 c sweet peppers, diced
  • 2 pieces prosciutto, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Poke holes in the frozen pie crust using a fork. Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Then, chop your onions and peppers. Sauté the onions and peppers over medium heat in a skillet with EVOO until the onions turn yellow and tenderize. Add the spinach until wilted. Remove from heat. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Add your veggie mix to the prepped pie crust and sprinkle the chopped prosciutto evenly over the veggies. Whisk together the eggs, milk, and spices. Pour the egg mixture over the veggies and meat. Top with your cheese blend. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until set. To bubble and brown the cheese, set your oven to broil and watch the quiche until the cheese is evenly browned, a few minutes. Be careful! You can easily burn the cheese and crust.
