Frequently Asked Questions
Use whole leaf spinach for quiche because using the frozen and shredded variety can become gritty or it can cause the egg custard to not be as smooth as if you use the fresh leaves.
You can absolutely use a homemade pie crust for this recipe if you have time. It is easy enough and I make it in the food processor, but if you use a premade one you can cut down on your prep time significantly. Plus, it has a built in cooking vessel and you can just toss it out when you’re done.
If you want to make this into a Crustless Spinach Quiche just triple the spinach and chop it up first. This recipe works well as is with the pie shell supporting it, but without the crust you need a bit more bulk throughout the pie.
Most recipes for Spinach Quiche look like all spinach all the way through. This quiche allows for the filling to stay creamy and rich and follows the patterns of Thomas Keller who makes a spinach quiche at Bouchon restaurant that also has less spinach in it.
Absolutely! If you want to freeze it, just freeze it on a cookie sheet as flat as possible. Once frozen put it in a plastic bag that you remove as much air from as you can. To bake, cover with foil and bake for 1 hour at 375 degrees. Then uncover and cook and additional 10 minutes.

What to Serve with Spinach Quiche
- Classically served with a salad on the side, you’ll love trying it with with this reader favorite Cosi Cobb Salad with Sherry Shallot Vinaigrette (Copycat).
- Breakfast meats like bacon or sausage go great on the side. Or you can also chop up the bacon or sausage and add it to the recipe if you’d like.
- Another great vegetable that goes with Spinach Quiche is Roasted Garlic Butter Mushrooms which you can serve on the side, add to the top, or chop them up and add them to the mixture before baking!
The Best Cheese to use in Spinach Quiche (Quiche Florentine)
Jack cheese works great if you want something neutral but not quite as flavorless as mozzarella for the kids to enjoy. You can also make this with cheddar or provolone or perhaps even a Swiss cheese to mix things up.
Another fun cheese combo is a mixture of mozzarella (for texture) and red leicester (my favorite cheese in the whole world) – the test of this recipe was out of this world fantastic. The red leicester is crumblier than mozzarella, so the two together work for creaminess of the quiche.
You can also both grate the cheese and include it in larger chunks that way most of it sort of melts into the mixture but you also end up with nice pocket of cheese in the quiche too.
