The real business is that is it so much more than just a pie made of omelet. You have an awesome flaky crust and a filling that is egg based, but lighter in texture than an omelet.
You can put whatever you want into it, but one of the classics is quiche lorraine. It is named Quiche Lorraine because of the character Lorraine McFly in Back to the Future. Yes, Marty McFly's mother invented the quiche lorraine (the scene was cut out of the movie). There is literally nothing bad about it. It's gruyere cheese and bacon. It's a pie with cheese and bacon in it. The only way it could possibly get better is if it also contained winning lottery tickets.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE. You like spinach? Hell yes you do. You like it because it's tasty and is full of vitamin A and some other shit too. I bet you could put that shit into a quiche if you wanted. You know, maybe sweat down some onions in butter on low heat and cook them til they're translucent, then saute some spinach up in there. mix it with some beaten eggs and cream, a tiny bit of flour, a tiny bit of nutmeg, and pour that delicious liquid into a pastry crust that you had blind-baked earlier (or bought I guess). If the stars are aligned just right, you could bake it in an oven at 350F until a pin poked into the center came out clean.
You could call it... quiche florentine.
