Tasty Tuesday: Quiche Florentine

Quiche is one of my husband's favorite dishes (and mine too!) but I have always been too scared to even try to make it on my own...until now.  My Mom has made recipe several times and after each time my husband begs me to make it for him.  I finally gave it a try over the weekend and not only was it so yummy, but it was super easy!
So, here you go:

Quiche Florentine

1/2 cup butter
3 garlic cloves, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (4.5 oz) can mushrooms, drained
1 (6 oz) package herb and garlic feta, crumbled
1 (8 oz) package shredded Cheddar cheese
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust ( or 2 regular...that is what I used)
4 eggs, beaten ( if you do 2 pie dishes, use 6 eggs)
1 cup Milk ( 2 pie dishes- used 1/5 cups)
1.  Preheat oven to 375
2.  In a medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat.  Saute garlic and onion in butter until lightly browned, about 7 minutes.  Stir in spinach, mushrooms, feta and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.  Season with salt and pepper.  Spoon mixture into pie crust.
3.  In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and milk.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour into pie crust, allowing egg mixture to combine with spinach mixture.
4.  Bake in pre-heated oven for 15 minutes.  Then sprinkle top with remaining cheddar cheese, bake an additional 35-40 minutes, until set in center.  Allow to stand for 10 minutes before serving.
**Like I mentioned, I used 2 smaller pie crusts so I just put half the recipe in one and the the rest in the other.  That way we had enough to last for breakfast for both of us for the week!**
