Mediterranean Quiche

We have a young woman staying with us from France for the month. If you didn't know, French people like meat. The challenge has now escalated to please a vegetarian (brian), a bacon loving gal (me) AND a French woman who is used to delectable meat based meals. Add in the fact that I am on a budget and in school/work full time, this could create quite the dilemma on weeknights. Here's where this easy quiche steps in...Vegetarian-check. Hearty- check. French approved- check.

Serves: 6

Time: active: 15 minutes
cooking: 50 minutes

Gather up:

1 puff pastry, thawed
8 oz frozen spinach, thawed, moisture squeezed out
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup feta cheese
10 cherry tomatoes

2 eggs
1 cup half and half
1 pinch ground nutmeg

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

2. Put pastry in pie dish, roll in sides if needed

3.   Sprinkle feta cheese over Crust. Stir together onion and spinach. Top with spinach and onion mixture. Arrange tomato halves over quiche.

4. To make Quiche Batter: Whisk together all ingredients in medium bowl. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Pour Quiche Batter over Filling in Crust.
 Set quiche on baking sheet, and bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until top is brown and center is set.
