I love spinach! Spinach dip, spinach pizza, spinach salad, creamed spinach, spinach Florentine. Ummmm. It's so good! This Spinach Quiche is a wonderful and delicious recipe that is great as a vegetarian dinner option, a side dish, or a tasty dish to bring to a brunch or party. I originally got this recipe from a friend of mine from New Orleans, Heather. Once I tasted it, I just had to have the recipe for my own use. I hope you enjoy!
