While I often make frittata, I cannot recall ever making quiche, but I made one for dinner last night. (I forgot to take a picture-sorry!) I could not find a quiche recipe in my clean eating cookbooks, so I kind of cobbled together a couple of different recipes and made a ‘hope it works’ substitution to make something that would work for me and the ingredients I had on hand. This is likely not truly “clean”, but it would be lighter than a traditional recipe.
1 pie crust (I am horrible at making my own pie pastry, so I used a store-bought crust I had in the freezer.)
6-8 slices of bacon (I cut off most of the fat, then diced what was left before frying.)
1 cup grated Swiss cheese
4-5 green onion stalks, diced
4 large eggs
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup low-fat, plain yogurt
1 tsp sea salt
freshly ground pepper
1. Heat oven to 425F.
2. Sprinkle bacon, cheese, and onion onto pie pastry.
3. In a bowl, beat eggs lightly. Whisk in milk, yogurt, salt and pepper. Pour into pie pastry.
4. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300F. Bake another 30-40 minutes, until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
It must have been good, because there wasn’t any left after dinner!
