Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan with cooking spray. Heat oil in a large skillet or saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and beginning to turn golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Add kale and garlic and cook, folding and stirring constantly, until the kale has wilted and is crisp-tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Add vinegar and remove from heat. Transfer all but 1/3 cup of the kale mixture to the prepared pie pan and set aside to cool slightly, about 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, crack eggs into a medium bowl and whisk until completely smooth. Whisk in half-and-half, salt and nutmeg. Sprinkle half the yellow and half the white Cheddar over the kale in the pie pan. Pour the egg mixture over the cheeses; top with the remaining cheeses. Scatter and nestle the reserved 1/3 cup kale over the top of the quiche. Bake until golden brown, puffed around the edges and set with a slight, firm jiggle in the center, 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
