Crustless Spinach Quiche
As with any pie, the crust has the most fat and calories, so my recipe is crustless. Also, pudding based pies use whole eggs, heavy cream and butter. All of those ingredients can add a few unwanted pounds, so this version is slimmed down. Hope you enjoy it!
Slimmed Down Spinach Quiche
2 8 oz. packs frozen spinach
1 medium onion chopped
12 egg whites
1 12 oz. can fat free evaporated milk
1 t salt
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t cayenne
1 cup 2% cheddar cheese
2 T flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x12 inch Pyrex dish with cooking spray; coat with flour and set aside. Thaw spinach in microwave, then saute with onions.
In a large bowl combine egg whites, evaporated milk, salt, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. In a small bowl, mix cheese with flour, then add to egg mixture; whisk together. Add spinach to egg mixture and mix well.
Pour quiche into prepared dish and bake for 40-45 minutes. Makes six servings.
