Angels on Earth: Crustless Spinach Quiche

The La Canada Presbyterian Women’s Bible Study Group holds an annual Christmas brunch that can’t be beat. For 15 years in a row, I’ve taken my Crustless Spinach Quiche, and I don’t think they’d let me in the door without it! Bake one for your next holiday gathering, or for a memorable Christmas morning breakfast.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. butter ½ c. flour
3 eggs 1 tsp. baking powder
1 c. milk 4 c. baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
2 c. Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese—or any combination of both, shredded  

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in 9-inch pie plate and place in preheated oven until melted. Swirl butter in pie plate to carefully coat the bottom and sides.

2. In a medium-size bowl, beat eggs.

3. Add milk and blend well. Then add cheese, flour, baking powder and spinach. Mix ingredients together.

4. Pour mixture into buttered pie plate and smooth out the top.
