We’re proud members of the crowd that believes being festive on St. Patrick’s Day is wearing a green t-shirt and chastising those who don’t. But this holiday is so much more than that. It’s not only a celebration of the works of St. Patrick for the people of Ireland, it’s also a great reason to test your baking skills. Like with these shamrock quiches. Our time saving secret: pre-made pie crust!
Have a merry St. Patrick’s Day!
Mixing bowls + cups
4 pot pie aluminum pans
Pre-made refrigerated pie crust dough (or you can make your own)
1 (10 oz) box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
4 large eggs
1 cup whole milk
1 cup shredded cheese
Salt & pepper, to taste
1.¬†¬†¬†¬† Cut 4 slits evenly on the top of each pot pie pan. Carefully form pie into a 4 leaf clover by pushing the edges together (be careful not to cut too deep or else the quiche will spill out).
2.¬†¬†¬†¬† Spray each pan with oil.
3.¬†¬†¬†¬† Fill each pan with pie crust and press the dough into the rim to form the shape of a 4 leaf clover. You can use a fork to press the edges in.
4.¬†¬†¬†¬† Place pans on a flat baking sheet.
5.¬†¬†¬†¬† In a medium bowl, whisk 4 eggs with milk, cheddar cheese and salt and pepper.
6.¬†¬†¬†¬† Fill each pan with thawed, drained spinach until it covers the bottom.
7.¬†¬†¬†¬† Sprinkle a little bit of feta over the spinach.
8.¬†¬†¬†¬† Fill each pan with egg mixture and bake for 30-40 minutes or until eggs are set and crust is golden brown.
