Spinach and Tomato Quiche

by | Breakfast, Main Dish | 1 comment

Happy Monday of Easter week!  Today is another recipe from my  Easter Menu.  I love to order quiche but seldom make it.  When I do I wonder why because it is so easy.

gfcrustI used the Williams-Sonoma Gluten Free Pie Crust for this recipe.  It is a very good crust and is so easy because all the ingredients are measured…event the dusting flour for your pastry board.

All you need is butter and egg yolk…or if you mess up because you are in a hurry and not paying good attention, egg whites work, too. (Yes, I used the wrong part of the egg for this because I was also making Mini Baked Alaskas for a birthday party – another post coming soon – but it still turned out beautifully!)
