Slimmed Down Spinach Quiche

"Real men don't eat quiche." Bruce Feirstein

I disagree with that statement, because there are a lot of sexy French guys that do. And my husband, a pretty hot looking, manly Scotsman does, too!

Quiche is a great main dish, since it's quick, simple and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It's also easy to prepare and relatively inexpensive.

As with any pie, the crust has the most fat and calories. My recipe is crustless. And with a pudding (egg and milk) based pie, whole eggs, heavy cream and butter can add a few inches to your waist line, as well! None of that found here.

Hope you enjoy this recipe. Serve it to a real man. And if you are a real man, make it for yourself!

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.
