Egg White Quiche

This is one of those recipes that is barely a recipe. I got the recipe from my daughter and I first tried it out at a baby shower brunch. I was honestly a little leery of serving it prior to testing it, but everyone loved it! I think so many people are fat and dairy conscious and this is a little “lightened” up. I served it tonight for dinner with a simple side salad and fresh fruit. It was perfect on a warm day!

Egg White Quiche

This quiche is delicious, but slightly different in texture to a quiche made with cream and whole eggs. My family loves it and I suggest trying it if you want a recipe that is a little lighter. No cream has got to be better for you, right? I also took the easy route using pre-packaged everything. Some nights are just like that!

Ingredients

  • 1 Pie Crust
  • 1 1/2 -2 cups Egg Whites
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 1 large handful Fresh Spinach
  • 1 cup Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup Sun Dried Tomatoes
  • 1-2 TBL Pesto
  • Approx. 1 cup grated Cheese (I used Swiss & Mozzarella)
  • Salt, Pepper and Pepper Flakes to taste
  • *Amounts will vary depending on size of pie dish
  • *Other ingredient suggestions: bacon, sausage, broccoli, zucchini. Get creative!

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350º
  2. Line pie plate with either store bought or homemade pie crust (like my holiday pie plate?)
  3. Layer mushrooms, spinach and sun dried tomatoes in dish
  4. Top with grated cheese
  5. Whisk together in separate bowl: egg white, eggs, pesto, salt, pepper and pepper flakes.
  6. Pour into pie dish
  7. Bake at 350º for approx 30-40 minutes
