Spinach Mushroom & Feta Crustess Quiche (Pinterest find)

Here is another Pinterest find for myself once I get my shopping lists together, which is harder for cooking in my eyes. This just looks yummy and was found on the website.

Spinach Mushroom Crustless Quiche

This recipe comes from 2011, so I would ignore the prices on the site because inflation happens, but the same possibility exists for when you look for sales.  

  • 8 oz. fresh mushrooms $1.99
  • ½ tsp minced garlic $0.06
  • as needed non-stick spray $0.02
  • 1 (10 oz.) box frozen spinach $1.09
  • 4 large eggs $0.83
  • 1 cup milk $0.39
  • 2 oz. feta cheese $0.87
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan $0.39
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella $0.50
  • to taste salt & pepper $0.05
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. If your frozen spinach is not already thawed, thaw it in the microwave. Empty the box into a colander and let it drain while you begin to prepare the rest.
  2. Quickly rinse the mushrooms and slice them thinly. Place the sliced mushrooms in a skillet coated with non-stick spray, add the minced garlic, and sprinkle a little salt and pepper. Turn the heat on to medium-high and saute the mushrooms until they release all of their moisture and no more water remains on the bottom of the skillet (5-7 minutes).
  3. Spray a pie dish with non-stick spray. Squeeze the rest of the water out of the spinach and spread it out on the bottom of the pie dish. Next add the cooked mushrooms and crumbled feta.
  4. In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs until fairly smooth. Add the milk, parmesan, and another small sprinkle of pepper. Whisk to combine. (This step can be completed while the mushrooms are cooking) Pour this mixture into the pie dish over the spinach, mushrooms, and feta.
  5. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over top. Place the pie dish on a baking sheet for easy transfer into the oven. Place the quiche into the preheated oven and bake until it is golden brown on top and the center is solid. Every oven is different but this should take between 45 minutes and an hour. Slice and serve!

Can't wait to try.

The Pintrest Chicken Dinner that I did make.

I posted a few chicken dinners I wanted to try.  Well, I did try the following recipe:

From the Delicious as it Looks Blog.

Let's just say it was delicious.  Had a minor issue where a step was skipped accidentally and it still came out delicious.  It's seemed to me on the spicy side, but absolutely would make it again as a come comfort food. Next time, I would though substitute heavy cream with something else, not known now, but will research it and pass it on.

This looks yummy and might get me the courage to try Mango.


I tried the following in a restaurant and fell in love with it.  Glad it was portion controlled (fancy restaurants with the food measuring about 2 inches across the plate) because it was AWESOME!!! My first time having capers, yum!!! Maybe I am getting courage to try new things.  Almost.  But can't wait to try to make it myself for a special occasion.   

Lemon Butter Chicken (no capers in this one but will figure that one out).
