The tea tray included quiche so I modified the menu a bit and created this Spinach Swiss Quiche. The quiche at Butchart Gardens was quite small and served in a tart shell. I decided to make my version a little larger and used a muffin tin to bake the quiche. This was the perfect size. I think this would be a great recipe to make and have on hand for lunches, picnics or sporting events. It is also a great option to freeze for a quick anytime meal when you are short on time.
