Whether it’s Basted Eggs, Scrambled Eggs, or Fried Eggs, eggs are a go-to for easy breakfasts. But when it comes to brunch? Well, then it’s time to pull out this spinach & cheese quiche recipe!

That said, even though quiche and brunch just seem to go hand-in-hand, this spinach quiche is actually great for almost any meal (yes, I have made this recipe as breakfast for dinner, too!). It is pretty healthy, easy to make, and everyone in my family loves it. Now that is saying a lot!

Spinach & Cheese Quiche Recipe

I always love making quiche because it is essentially a full meal in one dish. Whether it is my ham and cheese quiche or this cheesy spinach quiche, I am always happy that I can make a complete meal for my family in a matter of minutes. The eggs add a lot of protein, the spinach will help you get your daily vitamins and minerals, and the pie crust is pretty filling. It is simply perfect!

This spinach quiche recipe is also very quick to make. It only takes me about five minutes to prepare and then it is ready for the oven.

I like to use pre-made pie crusts to save time but you can also use a homemade crust. Both options work! Then, once you have your crust, all you need to do is mix the filling together in one big bowl, pour it into the crust, and bake!

You need to try this spinach and cheese quiche soon so that you, too, can have an easy, nutritious, and tasty meal as part of your weekly lineup.

Ingredients For Spinach & Cheese Quiche

  • Pie shell – You can use a store-bought, unbaked pie crust or a homemade pie crust.
  • Evaporated milk
  • Cheddar cheese – I like to buy pre-shredded cheese to save a little time but you can also buy a block of cheese and grate it yourself.
  • Frozen spinach – Any brand will work, just make sure to get a 10-ounce package.
  • Eggs


  • Switch the type of cheese to make a whole new, delicious quiche. I have used shredded Mexican cheese blend and feta cheese in the past and both variations were delicious.
  • Replace the frozen spinach with 3 cups of fresh baby spinach.
  • Add extra veggies to your spinach cheese quiche. Add up to one cup of chopped mushrooms, tomatoes, or peppers.

How to Make Spinach and Cheese Quiche

  1. Prepare: Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Have your unbaked, refrigerated pie crust in a pie dish, ready to go.
  2. Mix: Add the evaporated milk, shredded cheese, eggs, and spinach to a large mixing bowl. Stir everything together well. You want the eggs to be nicely whisked and blended with the filling.
  3. Pour: Pour the filling into the unbaked pie crust.
  4. Bake: Bake the quiche for 50-60 minutes. The center will be set and no longer look wet. The crust will be golden brown.
  5. Cool: Let the quiche cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Quick Tip

Thaw the frozen spinach before mixing it into the quiche filling. It is a good idea to squeeze the water out of the thawed spinach as well. This will make sure your quiche is not too watery and help it set perfectly.

What to Serve with Spinach Quiche

Quiche is a great meal all on its own but it also pairs well with quite a few other sides. Spinach and cheese quiche is fantastic when served with a cup of soup. I love quiche and beef vegetable soup or spinach quiche with butternut squash soup. These combos make a perfect lunch or dinner.

Turn your cheese and spinach quiche into a complete breakfast by serving it with fruit salsa and cinnamon chips. A slice of spinach quiche and a cup of hot Dalgona coffee also sound amazing.

How to Store Spinach & Cheese Quiche

Once your quiche is baked and cooled, wrap it in plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for 4-5 days. You can also freeze the quiche for up to three months. When you are ready to enjoy a slice, thaw it in the fridge overnight or simply place the whole quiche back into the oven for 15 minutes to thaw it quickly.


What makes a quiche a quiche?

A quiche is a savory custard tart made of eggs, cream, and various other ingredients such as cheese, meat, or vegetables. The crust typically consists of either pastry dough or a flaky pie crust that can be filled with the egg mixture. Quiches are usually served as part of brunch or lunch and can also be served as a main dish.

Is quiche healthy or unhealthy?

The healthiness of quiche depends on the ingredients used in it. Quiche can be made with a variety of healthy ingredients such as vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat cheeses. However, using high-fat ingredients like full-fat cheese and bacon can make it less healthy. Additionally, some recipes may call for cream or additional fats, which can make the finished dish high in fat and calories.

What is a frittata vs. quiche?

A frittata and a quiche are both egg-based dishes. However, they have some key differences. A quiche is usually made with pastry crust and has a custard base, while a frittata does not have pastry crust or custard base and instead uses beaten eggs as the base. Additionally, frittatas usually have more vegetables and less cream than quiches. Furthermore, frittatas are typically cooked in a skillet on the stovetop and can be finished in an oven, while quiches are traditionally baked in an oven.
