What I Made Thursday Instead of Monday
I haven’t cooked the last couple of Mondays, but I had made this quiche a week or so ago and people at work were asking me for the recipe. I had all the ingredients and it’s super easy to throw together so I made it tonight for the blog (well, and of course to eat!).
Southwestern Quiche (thank you, Emeals!)
1 C Southwestern egg substitute – this is great! It already has the peppers and onions mixed in the eggs!
1/2 C FF evaporated milk
1 C shredded 2% sharp cheddar cheese
2 eggs beaten
1/4 tsp. salt (I omitted this and never missed it)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 deep dish frozen pie shell
(The egg substitute, evaporated milk, pie crusts and pre-shredded cheese I bought had enough in their containers to make the second quiche tonight – super easy & one shopping trip for two quiches? – double bonus!)
Let the piecrust thaw on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes while the oven preheats and you are mixing your ingredients.
Combine the egg substitute, milk, cheese, eggs, salt & pepper and pour into piecrust.
Bake 25-30 minutes at 325 (mine took more like 35 minutes) or until eggs become firm. Divide into 6 servings.

You could make this skinnier by omitting the pie shell and making it a fritata instead. I served this with a simple salad. Mmmmm….. enjoy!
