Quiche x 4

I made quiche for Bunco on Monday night. These are the four recipes, just the way I tweaked them...MMM

Spinach Quiche

Ingredients:
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
2  mushrooms, diced
1 (6 ounce) package feta, crumbled
1/2 shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
4 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
salt, granulated garlic and pepper to taste

Prepare:
Press crust into a pie plate and pinch the edges (Prick the sides and edges with a fork)
Spread 2/3 of the spinach into the pie plate
Sprinkle with granulated garlic and pepper
Spread about 4 ounces of feta on top
Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the feta
Beat together 4 eggs and milk until frothy.
( I used my magic bullet to blend and it makes it super easy)
Pour egg over the top of the filling
Bake at 375 for about 50 minutes or until the knife inserted comes out clean
Let it set about 5-10 minutes before slicing to serve.

Apple Sausage Quiche

Brown Sausage in a large skillet until it crumbles

Top with apple mixture
Top apples with the cheese
Whisk together eggs and sour cream (salt and pepper to taste) until frothy
(Again, I use the magic bullet or blender for this part)
Pour egg mixture over the top of the fillings
