Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche #SundaySupper

Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche

This post is sponsored by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board in conjunction with a social media campaign through Sunday Supper LLC. All opinions are my own.
I had originally planned on sharing a crock pot mac and cheese with you today but the recipe still needs some perfecting and I kept dreaming of Quiche and Fontina Cheese.
I love Fontina's slightly nutty flavor and smooth creamy texture.
While Colt and I were out shopping we spotted fresh Chorizo in the meat case and knew Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche had to be made. 
My kids usually like breakfast for breakfast and dinner for dinner.
So they thought I might be losing it when they found out I had quiche planned for dinner but it was quickly devoured and I was barely able to hide the last piece for lunch the next day.
Colt and the kids all requested Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche be added to the regular breakfast and dinner rotation so I know the combo was out of this world.

First you'll need a 9" Pie Crust lined in pie pan and fluted.
Using a fork poke holes all over the bottom and sides of crust.

Line crust with aluminum foil pressing firmly into sides and bottom of crust to prevent shrinking. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes until crust is set.
Remove foil and bake an additional 5-7 minutes until crust is just barely browning and set.
Remove and allow to cool.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.

In a saute pan heat 1 tablespoon Olive Oil until hot over medium-high heat.
Add 1/4 cup Chopped Onion and saute until starting to lightly brown.
Add 1/3 pound of Fresh Chorizo removed from casing and use spatula to break into small pieces until Chorizo is cooked through.

Add 1/3 cup Chopped Bell Pepper, 2 cups Fresh Baby Spinach and 1 teaspoon Thyme.
Stir until Spinach is just barely wilted.
Remove mixture to a paper towel to drain off excess grease and allow to cool slightly.

Place half of chorizo mixture into the bottom of pie dish and cover with 3/4 cup Shredded Fontina Cheese.
Cover with remaining chorizo mixture.

Cover with remaining 1 1/4 cup Shredded Fontina Cheese.
For this recipe I was lucky enough to find a Wisconsin Fontina Cheese that was out of this world.
Wisconsin has been producing exceptional cheese for over 160 years with experience that has been passed down through the generations.
Wisconsin was also the first state to grade cheese for quality and offer an advanced training program to help cheese makers become masters of the craft.
I love that this means I know when I buy Wisconsin Cheese I am always receiving a high quality product.

Whisk together 5 whole Eggs with a pinch of Sea Salt and 1 cup half and half until well combined.

Pour Egg mixture over the top and bake in a 350 degree preheated oven for 40 minutes or until set.
Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner!
Allow Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche to cool for 20-30 minutes before slicing.
Not only was this Quiche amazing the day it was made but it was still fabulous when I reheated it in the microwave! 
Fontina Chorizo Spinach Quiche is so good and easy to make!
