Instructions

Preheat your oven to 400 °F.  Lightly grease a 12-muffin pan

 

Prepare the sauce by sautéing the onion in butter over medium heat. 

Cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes. Add flour and stir well to coat. 

Cook about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in the milk and whipping cream, 

stirring the mixture constantly to break up any lumps. 

Simmer sauce for 1 minute. DO NOT burn.


Next stir in the boursin cheese a little bit at a time, until melted and 

smooth. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the spinach, parmesan 

cheese, lemon zest and seasonings. Allow to cool. 

Can be prepped the day before.

 

Beat the eggs with the salt and pepper, then stir in the milk.

Add in the Bisquick and beat until smooth. Add the chilled spinach mixture.

Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted 

into the center of the quiche comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack for 

15 minutes.
