Roasted Pumpkin, Gruyère and Spinach Quiche

By  |  33 Comments

Roasted Pumpkin, Gruyère and Spinach Quiche. When I decided to make this recipe, I was unsure about my decision to use pumpkin. To my surprise it turned out pretty good. When most people think of quiche, pumpkin wouldn’t come to mind. However, I threw caution to the wind and decided to give it a go.

Roasted Pumpkin, Gruyère and Spinach Quiche Recipe #Food4Fall

Quiche is a fairly easy dish to make and one of the reasons why I love it, is because it can be customized a million ways.  I roasted the pumpkin but you will probably get the same result if you saute it.

    My favorite fall recipe is my healthy apple and onion stuffing with light bread. I also love to make apple crisps!

    I start using all my goodies from the garden and make sausage. I know that sounds weird but my mum and I did it when I was growing up, using freeze dried goodies from the garden from all our extras after canning. I make killer chicken, roasted pepper, garlic and various herbs and my meat grinder is HAND CRANKED! So this would be AWESOME!
