Spinach, Feta, and Mushroom Quiche

I love this recipe so much, I whip it up in my kitchen at least once per month.  If you like egg dishes and especially quiche, you are going to LOVE this one.

With the mixture of feta cheese, crimini mushrooms, onions, and spinach, there is a special kick to this quiche that is quite unique.
