Beef and Spinach Quiche

From Tammy's Recipes
Whole Wheat Pie Shell Ingredients:
  • 1 1/3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon cold water

Quiche Filling Ingredients:
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 pound ground turkey (85% lean or leaner)*
  • 9 ounces fresh spinach leaves, coarsely chopped**
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 4 to 6 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1. To make crust, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Cut in butter. In a separate small bowl, lightly beat egg, vinegar, and water. Add to dry mixture and knead with hands for a few minutes, until smooth.
2. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a circle and place in a 10-inch pie plate. Trim and flute edges. Prick with a fork on bottom and sides. Preheat oven to 475 degrees and bake for 8 minutes. Remove from oven.
3. To make filling, brown turkey with the chopped onion. Drain grease, return to skillet, and add the chopped spinach. Over medium-low heat, cook and stir until spinach starts to wilt. Remove from heat.
4. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add milk and mix. Add turkey and spinach mixture, stirring to combine. Pour into pre-baked pie shell. Top with shredded cheese.
5. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting into pieces and serving.
