The pros: Trader Joe's Mixed Mushroom and Spinach Quiche is frozen item that can be ready in about 30 minutes. The crust crisps right up and the filling is tasty and does not skimp on veggies.
The cons: Almost all the saturated fat and cholesterol you should have in one day are in this one quiche. Mushrooms do make this a touch watery in some spots. No microwave allowed on this one.
The verdict: For $2.49 you are getting a single serving quiche. The quiche was ready from freezer to able in just over 30 minutes. The crust was light, delicate but crispy. The quiche had a nice creaminess to it which comes from a blend of Emmental and creme fraiche.
Within the quiche is a nice amount of spinach and different mushrooms. The spinach was nicely wilted down. The egg that binds this together cooked well in the toaster oven. My only complaint about the mushrooms was that they sometimes added a watery element.
That element alone wasn't enough to make me not eat this or want to not buy it again. I'd buy this again, just not on a weekly basis. It's well made, tasty, and easy.

Would I buy this again? Yes, this was tasty as was Trader Joe's Broccoli and Cheddar Cheese Quiche, so it will come down to a matter of preference in veggies which one is right for you. Just keep in mind the nutritional values on these are high in some of the places where it is least appreciated. Good to have on hand, but not something I'd eat on a regular basis.
