Quiche

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┬áto 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.

You need:

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!
