I love the simplicity of dishes like quiche; especially when you use a great store bought dough. This is one of my favorite quiches, mainly because anything with spinach and goat cheese is fine by me! What’s YOUR favorite kind of quiche?
Makes one 10 inch quiche
1 store bought pie dough, rolled 12 inches in diameter and ¼ inch thick

½ cup fontina cheese, shredded
1 cup sautéed spinach, excess liquid removed and chopped
½ red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
2. Form rolled out pie dough into a quiche/tart dish and place in the refrigerator to chill.
3. Place the eggs, egg whites, milk, and cream into a mixing bowl and whisk together.
4. Stir the thyme and fontina into the egg mixture, season with salt and pepper and set aside.
