Spinach Quiche




It's been a long time since I last baked a quiche.  And since I bought some cheddar and mozzarella  from the baking store a few days ago, I decided to bake a spinach quiche for a friend of mine . My dear friend Mathilda who is also Jo's godmom ,  loves anything with cheese and since Piggy gal is going to visit her the next day, I decided to make one for her to take along as hand gift. You know, I was actually very tired that night after rushing through my work project but becoz I promised my Jo I will bake one for her to take to Mathilda who is her godmom, I started to make the quiche only at 11.30pm and finished baking it at 2am...do you believe it , I couldn't get up the next morning and I had to apply for emergency leave. Gosh , there goes one day of my precious leave. But worth it coz , this quiche turned out delicious. I made two, one for Jo's  godmom and one for ourselves :))
I used the same  Loraine Quiche pastry and changed the fillings to spinach instead of bacon bits and onions ;p . Click here for the special cheese pastry crust. I love this crust..it was the nicest crust I ever had . :)) Do try this quiche crust and you will know what I mean ;p  haha I was amazed how much energy I still have left after working through my work project to bake these quiches....err supermom or what , I have no choice for I had promised Jo that I will bake the quiche for her . She loves her godma very much...haha I will never be jealous of that coz her godma loves her very much so it is only natural that Jo loves her much too :))  Don't worry , my baby loves me very much too lol!



this is one great quiche to savor...cheddar and mozzarella cheese goes  well with spinach ( ' poh choy ' in cantonese )  



the cheesy aroma filled the whole house and I went to bed
thinking of this wonderful quiche.....:))



this cheesy pastry is the best ever...look how delicious this looks :p



a slice for myself of course! I always tax the bakes before I offer
it to Daddy :))



yummlicious spinach quiche...
one I will surely make again...thumbs and toes up!

    I used to make this almost twice a month. ;0 I usually make it with salmon or Asparagus...really yummy. ;) I guess the challenge would be not getting a soggy crust base..yours looked good. ;) Thanks for refreshing this recipe.

  12. Lovely, it's rather hard to find quiche in bakeries nowadays, esp in Ipoh.

  13. Hi James...yup you are so right..even secret recipes doesn't have it. At times when I am too lazy to bake one, I wish I could get a really good one from the bakeries or cafes but so far none in Ipoh that is good. Home baked ones are still the best :p Haha I will bake one for you one of these day okay...since I am quite free these day :))
