Light and Fluffy Spinach Quiche

I adapted the Light & Fluffy Quiche recipe by replacing mayo and milk with 3/4 c. heavy cream and 1 c. milk to create a smooth texture. I used 5 eggs. I used 3/4 c. reduced fat shredded chedder and 1/4 c. feta. Instead of frozen spinach, I tore up 1/2c. - 2/3 c. fresh baby spinach leaves and removed stems.

Photography Notes: I served this quiche at a luncheon along with my version of a pretty Autumn salad: mixed greens, toasted pecans, dried sweetened cranberries, freshly peeled orange sections, and roasted salted sunflower seeds. I offered either bottled lite raspberry pecan dressing or my own citrus dressing: 1/4c. sugar, 1/4 orange juice, 1-2 t. dijon-mustard, 3/4 c. canola oil, shake of salt & pepper. For dessert, I basted 6 cored fresh sickle pears with 1/2c. white corn syrup,1/2c. water, 1 t. vanilla extract, & 1/3c. apricot preserves. I sprinkled pears with ground cinnamon and baked them at 400 degrees until fork tender, about 20-30 minutes. I served each pear with some syrup in a footed dessert dish with a dallop of homemade fresh whipped cream sprinkled lightly with ground cinnamon. This meal was met with rave reviews! All want me to make it again and soon!!
