Clover Quiche

For St. Patrick's Day I'm transforming artichoke and spinach quiche into a clover.
Clover Quiche

Quiche is one of my go-to foods because I always have the basic ingredients – eggs, dairy and filling – in my fridge. This recipe is yummy anytime but the clover-ification of it seems especially appropriate this week.

Use an aluminum cupcake tray to make the clover shape.

  1.  Cut the aluminum cupcake tray into individual cupcake molds.
  2. To turn each section into a leaf, fold back the edges and shape one point on each “leaf.”
  3. Form the four ‘leaves’ in the shape of a clover and place puff pastry (or pie dough) on the clover. Tuck the dough into each individual shape, press in gently.Use a knife to trim any edges.

For the Quiche:

I typically wouldn’t use a food processor to make quiche, but in this case the food processor helps blend everything into a nice even green color.  On another day, I would recommend mixing it by hand, it’s just as tasty and require less clean up.

  1. Combine the spinach, chives, artichokes, goat cheese, salt and pepper in a food processor. Pulse to combine and then add in the milk.
  2. Whisk the eggs together, and incorporate all the ingredients.
  3. Spoon the mixture into the clover-shaped pastry (or into a regular pie mold on any other day).  Bake on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
