Make Something Monday ... Hamburger Spinach Quiche

Make Something Monday
I had some spinach left over from the night before and wanted to make sure it didn't go bad so I entered in google a search for spinach and the ground beef I had left over and tada out popped this recipe. You all know how much I love quiches! This was not a let down and was very yummy and the best part it was EASY to make! Hope you enjoy!

Hamburger Spinach Quiche


  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 (10 ounce) boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Chill the pie crust at least 20 minutes before baking to prevent shrinkage.
  2. Prick the pie crust with a fork and line with a double layer of aluminum foil and a layer of pie weights or dried beans. Bake in the preheated oven until edge of crust is golden, about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and weights and bake until the crust has set, about 5 minutes more.
  3. Cook and stir the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with the salt, pepper, and nutmeg until smooth. Whisk in the heavy cream, followed by the spinach and the beef mixture. Pour into the prepared pie crust and sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

ALEXIS NOTES: You know me it's all about easy so it was put everything in the crust no heating it first. I've never found any problems so hey I go with it! Also switched heavy cream to my Fat Free half and half. Also had a half of a red onion so that is what I used.
