Ham Spinach Mushroom Quiche

This Ham Spinach Mushroom Quiche recipe is easy and a great way to use the Low Carb Pie Crust recipe I posted yesterday. Simple, flavorful and nutritious it makes for a great weeknight meal. 

Yesterday I posted the recipe for this Easy Low Carb Pie Crust. It takes just minutes to prepare and pre-bake, then it’s ready to load with all of our favorite pie fillings.

For mine, I decided to make a Quiche to pair with a salad for our supper. First I pan-roasted mushrooms and onions, then I mixed those with eggs, cream, ham, frozen/thawed chopped spinach, Jarlsberg cheese, marjoram, dry mustard, salt and pepper.

While the Quiche, baked in a nine-inch deep-dish pie plate, takes an hour to bake, it’s worth the wait! This hearty meal is filling and nutritious, without the carbs you’d normally get when eating Quiche. Win!

I hope you’ll try it!
