This Quiche Florentine is a classic French dish that is perfect for any time of the day. The buttery crust is packed with fresh spinach, rich Gruyere cheese, and a creamy custard. Serve this quiche with a crisp salad for breakfast, lunch, or a light dinner.
Ingredients – 1 pre-baked pie crust For the Filling: – 2 tablespoons butter – 3 shallots, coarsely chopped – 3 cups fresh baby spinach – 2 garlic cloves, grated or minced – 6 whole eggs – 2 cups of heavy cream – 1 cup whole milk – ¾ teaspoon salt – ¼ teaspoon black pepper – 2 cups grated Gruyere cheese (200 grams)
In a large skillet, cook the shallots over medium heat until they are golden brown and slightly caramelized. Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then transfer to a plate and reserve.
Melt the remaining butter and cook the spinach leaves until wilted.
Transfer it to a paper towel-lined bowl and press it with the back of a spoon to remove any excess moisture.
In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir the cheese into the egg mixture.
Spread the shallots and garlic over the bottom of the partially-baked pastry crust. Spread the spinach mixture over the shallots.
