Mum's Mystery Quiche

Last night OH and I drove down to Mum and Dad's and it was snowing like full on snowing. From inside the car it felt and looked like we were in a snow globe!

Anyway, at Mum and Dad's we soon found out we were having Mum's mystery quiche, Mum calls it a pie, but either way! One good thing about this dish is that it is always different. Apart from the fact that it always contains 7 eggs and is topped with cheese...the rest is a mystery and is usually made of ingredients Mum has in the fridge. So it could contain spinach and onion, or some left-over dip and grated carrot, some french onion soup mix and frozen vegies...anything at all really. Sometimes there is a layer of fetta or brie under the cheese, you just never know! It is always different and always a suprise and most importantly always delicious! We usually make a game out of it and sit around the table trying to figure out what exactly the ingredients are! Last night we had the following combination:

1 x block of reduced fat herbed fetta crumbled
1 x bag baby spinach
3 x onions chopped
7 x eggs whisked
1 pkt spring vegetable soup mix
1 1/2 cups grated extra light cheese
2 tomatoes sliced

Cook onions and spinach in a fry pan until spinach has wilted.
Spoon over the base of a dish and pour over eggs combined with soup mix.
Sprinkle with 1/2 of the fetta and 1/2 cup grated cheese.
Bake for 30 mins at 150C.
Top with sliced tomato, remaining fetta and then remaining grated cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and bake for a further 10 mins or unil cheese is golden.
Serves 6

We had ours with some potato swirls and homemade tomato chutey, which I have to say were also pretty damn good!
