Spinach Quiche With Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil Feta Cheese

"I have derived this recipe from several recipes and plenty of trial and error. It is, by far, one of the best Quiche recipes I've made. It always gets called upon for family gatherings and parties. It was also put on the Menu at the restaurant where I work. You'll notice I have not added any salt or pepper or any other seasonings. Once you try it, you'll see why it really doesn't need them! Please let me know what you think!"

    I made this yesterday for a small Easter brunch. It is simple and delicious. I chopped a few sun-dried tomatoes and added those because my feta was plain. I also used yellow onion instead of vidalia and carmelized them in basil olive oil. Garnished with thin tomato slices (dab some of the moisture off of the slices with paper towel about 1/2 through baking.) Printed this out and put it with my quiche recipe collection that I like to have on hand for when relatives stay over. Thank you!

    This was so delicious! I used a very large vidalia onion and the whole 8 oz of feta cheese which left me with enough to make two small 8" pies. The result was a very light and fluffy quiche. Definitely worth making again.

    This quiche rocks! I am making if for the third time for dinner tonight. I would not alter the recipe...it is perfect as is. Everyone in my family loves this! It's the perfect vegetarian entree.

    This recipe surprised me. I didn't think it would be as good as it was, even the second day I was amazed at how good it was. The feta really adds a nice zing. It's not your usual "egg pie." I am keeping this one for sure

I am a Chef at Legends Grill, on the Slammer and Squire Golf Course at World Golf Villiage and also at Champions Grill on the King and Bear Golf Course in St. Augustine, FL. I love cooking anything I can and in any style. I love to experiment and learn new techniques as often as I can. I'd say my biggest passion, however, is in baked goods, (i.e. special occasion cakes, cheesecakes, ect...)
