  1. Preheat and Prepare: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Lightly grease a 9-inch pie dish or quiche pan with a bit of olive oil or non-stick cooking spray to ensure easy removal of the quiche once baked.
  2. Spinach Prep: Ensure your frozen chopped spinach is thoroughly thawed. The key to a good quiche texture is removing as much water as possible from the spinach. Wrap the thawed spinach in a clean kitchen towel or paper towels and squeeze out the excess liquid. This step prevents a watery quiche.
  3. Mix the Batter: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and dried thyme until well combined. Stir in the squeezed, dry spinach and the finely grated Parmesan cheese until the mixture is uniform.
  4. Pour and Bake: Transfer the quiche mixture into the prepared pie dish, spreading it evenly. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until the quiche is set in the center and the top is lightly golden. To test for doneness, insert a knife in the center of the quiche; it should come out clean.
  5. Cool and Serve: Once baked, remove the quiche from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before slicing. This resting period helps the quiche set and makes it easier to slice.
  6. Garnish and Enjoy: Serve warm or at room temperature. For a delightful finish, garnish with additional grated Parmesan or a sprinkle of fresh herbs. This crustless spinach quiche pairs wonderfully with a fresh salad or roasted vegetables for a complete meal.
