      This is now my favorite quiche! I have to say that I did make a few changes to health it up a bit. First, I cheated. I was short on time and used a rolled, premade pie crust. After blind baking, I added 1 cup sharp cheddar, then for the filling I added 1 whole sauted onion, 8 oz fresh spinach (cooked down with the onions when they were almost done) and deseeded tomatoes for half (hubby is not a fan, but I am). I would have loved to of added mushrooms and will next time, but I was out. I topped the whole thing with with 1/4 cup parm. cheese. The only other change is that I left out the nutmeg. I forgot it, but it was still delicious! I used a regular pie pan, but should have used a deep dish. The milk/egg/spice mixture was WAY too much for a regular pie pan. OH! One last change, I used unsweetened almond milk in place of the heavy cream. You have to try this quiche!

      So yummy!!! I added 1/2 tomato (seeds removed) and to prevent soggy crust, I sprinkled 1/2 the cheese right onto the crust so it created a barrier between egg and crust. Thanks!
