How to make Spinach & Mushroom Quiche
Ready the oven to 350 degrees F. Using cooking spray, grease a 9-inch pie pan and set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the mushrooms and saute for about 8 minutes until brown and tender. Then, add the garlic and onion. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes or until the onion is translucent and the garlic is fragrant, stirring often.
Toss in the spinach and cook for another minute until wilted. Take the pan off the heat when done.
Place the eggs, half-and-half, mustard, milk, thyme, salt, and pepper in a medium mixing bowl. Mix well until blended.
Into the mushroom and cheese mixture, transfer the egg mixture. Then, place everything into the prepared pie pan.
Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until the top of the pie is golden brown.
Take the pie out of the oven when done and allow it to sit for about 10 minutes. Before serving, garnish with some thyme.
