This is another great recipe for St. Patrick's Day. Our other recipes so far have been Lucky Charm Doughnuts
and Poutine with Guinness Gravy
. There are always a lot of dessert recipes themed for holidays, but I always really like when we can find a main dish that fits a holiday theme, and this one does fit really well. The idea comes from the blog Diamonds for Dessert
. We didn't have disposable pans to make the clover shape like the original blog did, so we made our own shapes out of foil and it worked pretty well.
-1 1/4 cups flour
-1/2 cup butter
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/4 cup ice water
-5 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
-1/4 cup half-and-half
-1/4 cup grated gruyere
-1/8 cup grated parmesan
-1.5 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
-1/4 cup diced onion (white, red, or green onions)
-salt and pepper
|Fold over aluminum foil so it is a little thicker.|
Shape it into a clover shape.
|Add the shape to a pie pan.|
|Make the crust. Cut the butter into small slices.|
|Mix together the flour, salt and water with the butter.|
|Roll out the crust with a rolling pin.|
|Cut around the shape you made.|
|Place the crust in the bottom of the pan.|
Take the leftover crust and stand it up on the sides along the foil.
|Line the inside of the foil all the way around.|
|Now continue the clover shape by putting crust through the middle.|
|Make the filling. Mix half and half, egg, cream cheese, salt and pepper.|
|Add the spinach, cheese, and onion.|
|Add the filing to the crust.|
Bake for 20 minutes at 425.
|Take the foil off the outside of the quiche and cook again|
for another 10 minutes to cook the outside of the crust.
Everyone really liked this. It was great that it turned out green, and it did look like a clover, which was perfect for St. Patrick's Day.
