Pepperoni Spinach Quiche Recipe

Pepperoni Spinach Quiche Recipe

Several years ago, I had to come up with an appetizer to serve at a pool party, and this colorful quiche was a hit. It's great on an antipasto tray, cut into wedges. —Elly Townsend, Summerfield, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/4 cup sliced pepperoni, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half cream
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Dash pepper

Directions

  • 1. Separate crescent dough into eight triangles; place in an ungreased 9-in. fluted tart pan with removable bottom with points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides to form a crust; seal seams. Set aside.
  • 2. In a small skillet, saute red pepper in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat. In another small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir in red pepper mixture. Pour into crust.
  • 3. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
    Freeze option: Securely wrap and freeze cooled quiche in plastic wrap and foil. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap quiche; reheat in oven until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°. Yield: 8 servings.

"I have a great quiche recipe, but was looking for something different. This one fit the bill. I used both red and yellow peppers, for some extra color, and also added some swiss cheese and extra garlic. The melding of flavors was amazing, and the pepperoni gave it just a little kick. What I like is that by using the crescent roll crust, you get just a hint of that with each bite, which adds to the lightness of this dish. This goes into my "must take to the party" recipe file."

"Delicious. I cooled the leftovers, then covered with foil and refrigerated. They stayed wonderfully firm for the next two days, and heated so nicely in the microwave. I think the flavors were better the next day, too. The only change I made was using a Mexican blend cheese."

"I altered the recipe to cut down on fat, using the reduced-fat crescent rolls, turkey pepperoni, and fat-free half and half. I also added corn to try to sneak in more vegetables for my kids. It was delicious! My husband said I could make it any time I wanted and the leftovers were great at work the next day!"
