Real men Egg Quiche

Looking for something new to Egg and SWMBO suggested a Quiche so I did a little research and came up with:

3 eggs

2/3 cup of half and half

2 cups Italian blend shredded cheese

Torn up spinach leaves, amount to your preference

Portabella mushrooms, chopped, amount to your preference

Kosher salt and Pepper

Mix all of above ingredients in a bowl and pour into a pie dish with crust

Top with any amount of cheese you like

Egg setup:

Platesetter, legs down, grill, spacers, pie dish

400 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes, I would turn the dish at least once to even out the crispiness of the topping.

This was the lightest and flakiest crust I have ever had, tasted amazing!

Sorry for the sideways pictures, not sure how to fix that...

Thanks for looking :-)

Cheers!

    Very nice!  The sideway photos rotate and come up right when clicked on...not that it matters since the pie is round ;)

    ChrisgrillsSTLMO thanks for the idea for real men. Looks great

    I learn something new everyday from this group.
    Spacers - hadn't thought about it for pies. What type do you use? What air gap does it create?

    Thanks in advance

    I use baked clay garden pot feet that I purchased at Lowe's. I imagine they are available at any hardware/warehouse/garden store. The ones I have are shaped sort of like an easy chair so I can lay them on their side for about a 1" gap or as they were intended for about a 2" gap. I also use them whenever I make pizza to elevate the pizza stone.

    Hope this helps, thanks for reading.

    Cheers!
