Savoury cheese quiche
This savoury spinach and cheese quiche will not disappoint and makes an easy yet impressive lunch or supper.
 

1 tbsp butter

3 shallots, minced

3 bunches flat-leaf spinach, thick stems removed and leaves roughly chopped

Coarse salt and ground pepper

150g Gruyere or strong mature white cheddar cheese, grated

2 x short crust pastry

8 large eggs

250ml light cream

1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.

Grease 2 pie tins lightly and line baking trays with greaseproof paper.

In a large skillet, heat the butter over medium heat and cook the shallots, stirring occasionally, until softened.

Add as much spinach as possible and stir until it starts to wilt adding more until used.

Season with salt and pepper.

Remove to a colander and squeeze out as much liquid as possible.

Divide the spinach mixture and cheese between prepared crusts.

Place each crust on a separate rimmed baking tray.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, nutmeg, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 teaspoon of pepper.

Dividing evenly then pour the mixture into crusts.

Arrange baking sheets on racks, and bake until centre of each quiche is just set, 55 to 60 minutes, rotating the trays from top to bottom halfway through.

Let quiches stand 15 minutes before serving.
