Politics & Quiche

So, I have not really been one in the past to be very interested in politics. However, this year, I have been much more interested. Maybe I'm just more mature now, who knows? It seems that the race this year will be a close one. I will refrain from blogging my personal political views, but wanted to share this article with you. (Make sure you read the entire article and note the parallels). We'll see how it turns out in a few weeks. Will the trend continue or will this be the year with differing results? Hmm...

So, on to the next subject...quiche. Just had to share this recipe with you. I found it on one of my favorite websites, I knew it would be tasty with 860 people giving it 5 out of 5 stars in the reviews, however, it was even better than expected. And the best news of all...all five of us liked it! Enjoy!

Spinach Quiche
1/2 cup butter
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10 oz) pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (4.5 oz) can mushrooms, drained
1 (6 oz) package herb and garlic feta, crumbled
1 (8 oz) pcg shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 (9-inch) unbacked deep dish pie crust
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Saute garlic and onion in butter until lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Stir in spinach, mushrooms, feta and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Soon mixture into pie crust.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Pour into the pastry shell, allowing egg mixutre to thoroughly combine with spinach mixture.

Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Sprinkle top with remaining Cheddar  cheese, and bake an additional 35 to 40 minutes, until set in center. Allow to stand 10 minutes before serving.

Yum! Yum!
