Sauteed Onion, Spinach, Feta Quiche Recipe (Vegetarian)

Recently, I had a piece of quiche at a local coffee shop for breakfast. Oh my goodness, it was good! I wanted to go back for more soon, but the problem is I live a good 45 minutes away. I thought maybe I could make it at home. After looking at several recipes online, I realized it was pretty easy to do.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! I’ve made it a few times and must say, it’s delicious. Feel free to swap out some of the ingredients, such as the type of cheese or the onion/spinach for something else you may enjoy. It’s a pretty flexible recipe and perfect any time of the day!
