Workin' It Out

Melting Away & Finding Myself

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.

Nutrition info per serving: 288 calories, 23 grams carbs, 16 grams fat, 13 grams protein

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!

    Thank you so much for this! I made this emeals meal weeks ago, but lost the print out 😦 I’ve been craving it the last few days. We added ham to one and ground sausage to another when we made this recipe. Thanks to you, we can make it again!!!
