Spinach-Bacon Quiche

Spinach-Bacon Quiche

2/3rds of a Pie crust
6 eggs (1 1/2 cup Egg Beaters)
1/2 cup non-fat milk
1/2 reduce fat cheddar cheese
4-5 cups fresh spinach, chopped or 1 package frozen (thawed and drained)
4 strips of cooked bacon
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

First, On a floured surface roll out your pie crust with a rolling pin. Cut to the size you need. You don't have to do this step, but it makes it easier to eat for those who might have problem with crust and plus it's less calories. If you want to reduce even more calories, omit the crust all together.
Second, Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put your crust in the baking dish. Place crust in the oven to cook for 2-3 minutes while you start browning bacon and chopping spinach. Take the crust out and add spinach and cheese. Beat with hand mixer eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Add mixture to dish. The mixture should barely cover spinach. If it doesn't, add an extra whisked egg.
Top with crumbled bacon. Turkey bacon is a great substitute.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until eggs are cooked in center of quiche.
Makes 8 servings at 122 calories per serving.

Make it a Muffin Tin Meal!- you could omit the crust and bake in muffin tins!
