Crustless Spinach Quiche

Crustless Spinach Quiche

 

A crustless spinach quiche!

So I set out this week to find an easy, quick, tasty and healthy recipe that uses eggs and thought of a quiche. I didn't want a crust as that is processed carbs (flour products and/or man-made carbohydrates that are not in their natural form, or as God made them state)Β and that is a no-no for me. So I again went to my trusted google search and arrived at a site that I have used before. So I am NOW thinking I really like this site as I always find great, easy, healthy recipes from there. The website is www.allrecipes.com. Make sure to check that site out next time you want to venture forth and look for a new recipe.

Here is the EASY PEASY Recipe:

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped
spinach, thawed and drained
5 eggs, beaten
3 cups shredded Muenster cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan.
2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. Stir in spinach and continue cooking until excess moisture has evaporated.
3. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add spinach mixture and stir to blend. Scoop into prepared pie pan.
4. Bake in preheated oven until eggs have set, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

 

Well I have to say the limited and easy on hand ingredients and the few directions to making this recipe sold me on trying it. If you notice there is a LOT of cheese in this recipe soooooo I changed it some. Yep I have decided that I really, really like to tweak recipes NOW, now that I am actually venturing forth and trying different stuff. So with this easy list of ingredients and easy directions I set off to CREATE my own version of this quiche.

I don't know about you but for some reason I always thought quiches were hard to make. Now WHY I thought that I don't know because this was so easy I will probably be making this weekly now. I added all the ingredients listed above but I changed the cheese to parmesian cheese for 1 1/2 cups and low fat mozzerella for 1 1/2 cup. Now this recipe in a pie pan serves 6 people and each serving is about 300 calories... this straight from the website. So I figure I might have saved a few calories and a little less fat with my changes and yet still have it taste GREAT. And of course, we LOVE our onions, well Lynn and I love the onions, sometimes Brent, not so with Erica but I added extra onions to it like double what it asked for.

I was going to add garlic but somehow forgot all about it. Oh well, next time. I love to read some of the comments of other folks that have tried this recipe and got, again, the idea of making them in cupcake pan so to then have it be perfect serving size. Yes that worked out great. Check out how AWESOME they look.

Ok so there you have it, an easy-peasy recipe that ended up a little healthier with the changes in cheese and I also made a double serving as I wanted a pie quiche and cupcake baby quiches. Worked out wonderful for me. The recipe said that each serving is about 300 cals with the pie quiche having 6 servings. So I figure with my tweaks the calorie count was probably reduced a little and the fat grams too.

I would recommend this recipe to you all as an easy, quick and healthy meal. Also the cupcake servings are GREAT as quick snacks. I mean you can just grab one from the frig and walk out the door with it. I did it this morning already. Tasted great cold, perfect size and dense - no soggy going on with this quiche.

If you decide to give this recipe a try be sure to stop back and let me know of any tweaks you make and how it ultimately turns out for you.
