Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Cheese Spinach and Mushroom Quiche 4

When I was a kid, I thought quiche was food for old people! I swear.
And I also thought the Moose Lodge was a skating rink for old people too. Kids are weird…I was weird.
And I am sure I thought “old”, was like 38. Sooooo, that currently makes me geriatric.

Because I am officially a part of the elderly generation, I now love quiche. It’s a requirement.

Quiche is so very versatile. If you like it, you can totally throw it in there. Well, maybe except for chocolate, because that would be strange with a bunch of veggies and cheese….but, whatever floats your boat man.

Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche

Quiche is also the perfect little dish to serve for your meatless Monday meal, breakfast, brunch, dinner or really anytime during the day.

Eggs are a great way to replace meat in your meals because they have 6 grams of protein and only 70 calories per egg.
