Almost a year ago, I baked this quiche the morning of a friend’s wedding day for the bridal party. Since then, I have made this quiche at least once a month.
Not only does it only take a few minutes to whip up, it's delicious and husband-approved. In fact, all the men in the bridal party liked it, which is saying a lot, right?
I personally love quiche, because it's light, buttery and flavorful. Not only does this quiche taste good, I lightened it up using egg whites and milk, rather than heavy cream. Yum. I’m thinking I might just have to go eat some now.
Spinach: rich in glutathione, high in Vitamin K, C, and A. Promotes gastrointestinal health, and high in Lutein, which protects from eye diseases
Eggs: high in protein, great source of choline for brain function and health, and reduce inflammation
This quiche is great for brunch, taking to a work potluck, or for an easy weeknight dinner. Give it a try!
Spinach, Bacon and Swiss Quiche
- 3 large eggs
- 1/3 cup egg whites
- 1 cup milk
- Salt and pepper
- 2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
- 6 slices of bacon, cooked (could also use turkey bacon)
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 (9-inch) refrigerated pie crust, whole wheat if you can find it!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Layer the spinach, bacon, and cheese in the bottom of the pie crust, then pour the egg mixture on top.
Place quiche on a cookie sheet, in case the egg overflows. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set. Cut and enjoy!
