Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 cup plus 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 8 tbsp butter , cold
  • 4 to 5 tbsp ice water

Quiche filling

  • 2 small to medium red potatoes , thinly sliced
  • 5 oz . fresh spinach
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lg garlic cloves , minced
  • 4 lg. eggs
  • 1 1/3 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 to 1 1/2 oz. coarse grated and/or shaved Parmesan cheese

Instructions

Crust

  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, salt, and sugar
  • Slice cold butter into thin pieces and add to the flour
  • Use a pastry cutter to break down the butter and incorporate it into the flour, until approximately pea size bits are formed.
  • Add 4 tbsp ice cold water and use a fork to blend and moisten the flour, being careful to not breakdown the butter pieces.
  • Grab a small handful of the dough and squeeze together. The dough should just barely hold together.
  • Add additional water 1 or 2 tsp at a time if too dry.
  • Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 mins while preparing the rest of the ingredients..
  • Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll out on a floured surface until large enough to fit a 9 inch pie plate.
  • Place the dough in the pie plate and crimp the edges

Quiche filling

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • In a large skillet, on medium heat, add olive oil, minced garlic, and spinach; stir the spinach until it's wilted, 3 to 4 mins.
  • Place potato slices on a large, microwave safe plate and microwave 2 to 3 minutes, until the slices are softened, then let cool slightly.
  • Arrange a layer of potato slices in the crust, followed by the wilted spinach.
  • In a medium sized bowl, mix the eggs, milk and salt, then pour over the spinach and potatoes in the crust.
  • Add a layer of grated Parmesan cheese. (Amy says that you can put some cheese on the potatoes too, and that shaved cheese is a nice flavor treat when bitten into).
  • Place in oven, 40 to 50 mins until nicely browned and the eggs are set.
  • Let cool 10 mins then slice and serve.

Notes

  1. The potato slices will stick together because of the starch they contain. Just carefully try to keep them apart after they are microwaved.
  2. Once the potato slices are placed in the crust, you can add some shaved parmesan cheese for a further burst of flavor.
  3. Keep leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They are easily reheated in a microwave.
