Not sure on the dough recipe, but you can find a quick pastry dough recipe somewhere on the net.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups fresh spinach leaves, trimmed and washed (I used maybe a cup, I didn't want it to overpower the feta)
4 large eggs
2/3 cups creme fraiche, or heavy cream, or milk
1/3 cup feta cheese (i used alot more than this)
1 tomato (seedless if you like, I just took the mush parts out of the tomato after I sliced it so it looked nicer)
2 cloves of minced garlic
Crumble the feta cheese on the bottom of the crust, covering it.
Pour the olive oil into a saucepan and sautée the spinach for a minute, then put the spinach over the feta cheese.
Beat the eggs, garlic and creme together, and pour over the top of the feta cheese and spinach.
Place thinly sliced tomatoes on top of the quiche carefully (they sink if you plop em down).
Chives and green pepper go on top. Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes.
If you use a frozen pie crust, bake it in the oven beforehand for a few minutes or else your quiche will have a mushy crust.
Your post inspired our breakfast, more of a fritata type quiche.
A large pie pan with melted butter, smashed leftover potatoes, garlic, into a crust shape on the bottom of the pan. Added: ramps, red onions, chives, bell peppers, crab meat, black olives, steamed brocoli, and a mixture of milk/eggs/mustard powder/salt, topped with colby jack shredded cheese. Bake at 350° F for 45 minutes.
(We don't get good feta here in the midwest, usually it's too salty, I'll have to learn to make my own to get any good stuff.)
Thank you for the inspiration! ~Blissful
