SPINACH AND FETA CHESSE QUICHE RECIPE




 quiche is a savoury open pastry crust with a filling made with eggs and milkwith one or more of cheese, meat and vegetables.Quiche can be served hot or cold. It is part of French  cuisine is also popular in other countries, particularly as party food.
   
       Today I'm going to share easy and healthy spinach and feta cheese quiche. It tastes soooo yummy!!!!!!! With wonderful flavors. Though quiche recipes called for cheddar cheese, I added processed cheese instead of cheddar cheese. Because cheddar is not available in my place. If you can find cheddar cheese in your place then I highly recommend you to use cheddar cheese. Trust me this quiche is very very tasty that no one can stop with one piece. When I served to my hubby and kids they finished it with in few minutes!!!!! Happy me!!!!!!

I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
