Preparation

Step 1

    Line a 9-inch pie pan or quiche dish with the pastry and chill it. 


Step 2

    Wash the spinach thoroughly and discard all thick stems. Plunge the spinach into boiling water for about 1 minute, drain it well and pat it dry with paper towels. 


Step 3

    Chop the spinach fine, add the chopped scallions, and cook the greens in the 2 tablespoons butter for several minutes, or until all liquid has evaporated. 


Step 4

    In a bowl combine the eggs, lightly beaten, with the cream and salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Add the spinach and pour into the pastry shell. 


Step 5

    Sprinkle the top with the grated cheese and dot it with 1 tablespoon of butter cut in bits. Bake the quiche in a moderate oven (375°F, 190°C) for 25-30 minutes until set. Serve hot.
