12 quiches


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 8 ounces fresh mixed wild mushrooms (such as oyster and shiitake), sliced

  • 1 cup thinly sliced yellow onion

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme

  • 1 (5 ounce) package fresh spinach, coarsely chopped

  • 8 large eggs

  • cup whole milk

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper

  • ¾ cup shredded Gruyère cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms in an even layer; cook, undisturbed, until browned on the bottom, about 4 minutes. Stir and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until browned all over, about 5 minutes. Add onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Stir in garlic and thyme; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add spinach; cook, stirring constantly, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

  2. Whisk eggs, milk, Dijon, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Stir in cheese and the mushroom mixture. Coat a standard 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Divide the mixture among the prepared muffin cups. Bake, uncovered, until puffed and set, about 30 minutes. Remove from the pan and serve immediately.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
