Spinach Quiche Review by Debbie Eisenbise on June 1st, 2014:

The recipe doesn't say when to add in the spinach mixture. Should it cool first?

Spinach Quiche Review by S. Sagar on August 16th, 2013:

Made this delicious recipe last night for dinner. We all loved it! It is the best way to make a child eat spinach.

Spinach Quiche Review by J. R. Payne on October 9th, 2012:

Recipe fails to specific when to add the spinach to the shell. One would assume it was intended to say: Combine eggs, milk, salt, etc... Pour over assemblied quiche.
