Crustless Spinach Quiche


Many years ago, I met this really lovely women. She and her husband were the buyers of our first house. The two of us immediately hit it off. We had children the same age, and I felt we were what I call, kindred spirits. I do believe some people meet and just feel a connection from that first day. That was us! After we both moved in to our new homes and got settled, we started to get together for lunch and playdates with our kids. One of those lunches resulted in discovering my all time favorite quiche recipe. My friend served it for our lunch and was gracious enough to share it with me!  It has been my standby, ever since! My go-to recipe for drop in company! My girls over for lunch favorite! My too hot to cook, let's make quiche recipe! I think you get it! I love this recipe! And today I am sharing it with you! The reason I have such a warm personal attachment to this recipe is the ease of preparation. When I'm busy or rushed I like EASY! Everything gets mixed in one bowl and dumped into a 9 inch greased pie plate. It's baked for 45 minutes. It looks impressive and tastes delicious! Hope you enjoy it!

Spinach Quiche

1 16 oz. package frozen spinach
1 cup sour cream
3 eggs
1 small can of Durkee Onion rings 
( I have also used 1 cup of croutons semi crushed instead of onion rings)
2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, I often use swiss or jack instead  

Thaw frozen spinach, squeeze dry. Then mix all ingredients in a large bowl.
Put into a 9 inch pie pan and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
Bake at 350°   
About 45 minutes or till nicely browned 

The ingredients! 

Everything in the bowl 

Mix it up!

Dump it into pie dish.

Spread evenly and sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake it.

Out of the oven and ready to eat!


  1. I got this recipe from you a little while back after having it for lunch at your house! We love it and it's my 'I don't really feel like cooking' recipe along with a salad. Nice to learn the source of it. Great pictures once again.

  2. Hi, Kathy! This looks great. I can't wait to see what you do with the yeasted coffee cake - you're such a talented baker! You should join the Daring Bakers, too - it's only once a month.

  3. What a great recipe! I wonder if I can substitute the onion rings for real onions and some panko bread crumbs?

  4. Hi Kathy, I agree with Susan, I think you would really like the Daring Bakers. Everything you bake looks perfect!

  5. Oh man...what could be better than cheese and spinach?! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Thanks for this easy quiche recipe, Kathy. It looks so incredibly yummy!

  7. My husband would love this - it looks wonderful!
