It's true. I have absolutely not idea what a "first down" is or what it means.
Sure I've been to a few super bowl parties before. I love making food and hanging out with friends so I am a big fan of the event, I just have absolutely no idea what is going on with the game...
So I generally hang out near the dips. And I really really love spinach and artichoke dip. I could marry it.
Which got me thinking...
Answer: yes, that's a great idea. I am a genius.
Actually, I doubt I'm the first person who has ever tried this. I bet someone somewhere has made something similar. But hey, it's not like I'm trying to put my name on it here. Live and let live. And eat. Eat everyday. Words of wisdom.
So if you like spinach artichoke dip, and you like quiche, well darling you are gonna love this.
For the crust: 1 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 tsp salt, 1 stick cold butter and 1/4 cup cold water.
Combine flour and salt, cut in the cold butter. You can do this but cutting it up into small cubes or grating the cold butter with a box grater. Use your clean hands to combine until crumbly. Slowing add in the water until dough ball forms. Cover dough in plastic wrap and refrigerator for at least an hour, but overnight is great too. When ready to make your quiche, roll out dough and place in your well greased pie dish. Bake at 350 F for 5 minutes before filling with the quiche filling.
For the quiche: 1/2 cup finely chopped spinach, 1 can artichoke hearts (drained and chopped), 5 eggs, 1/2 cup cream, 3 tablespoons sour cream, 1 cup mozzarella cheese, 1 tablespoon minced garlic and a little bit of black pepper.
In a bowl whisk together eggs, cream, sour cream, minced garlic and pepper. Fold in spinach, artichokes and 3/4 cup cheese. Pour batter into the partially baked pie crust. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 375 F for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool a bit before cutting into, otherwise it may appear runny at first.
Not that I did that. I'm never over eager when it comes to eating... never. ;)
