Tonight my Freezer was my Inspiration

Lately, I am really trying to "shop" my freezer when it comes time to cook. So often I buy things that end up getting shoved to the back and eventually tossed without me using them. Such was the case with 1/2 a package of frozen pie crust that I needed to use soon or lose. I decided to use it tonight on a lightened up quiche. Usually they call for whole milk and cream. I used skim milk in this one and it worked out just fine.

For the filling I sauteed chopped green & sweet white onions, garlic, broccoli and spinach in a pan until tender. I added some fresh ground nutmeg, salt & pepper to taste. Then I let the mixture cool. I also baked the crust off and put it aside to cool. While they were cooling, in a separate bowl I beat 4 eggs, plus one egg yolk together with a cup of skim milk.

To assemble I added the cooled vegetables to the pie crust and spread them around evenly. I poured the egg & milk mixture into the crust. Then I dropped pieces of goat cheese throughout the mixture. I topped it off with a very light grating of cheddar cheese and baked it in a 400 degree oven until the custard had cooked and had turned golden brown (about 35 minutes).
