Skinny Bacon and Swiss Quiche

5 Aug

I’ve been counting calories for 7 months now. I’ve been able to “skinny down” a lot of the recipes i made before, but the one that alluded me the longest was my quiche. It’s REALLY hard to make a decent quiche without using full eggs or heavy cream. After my 9 year old begged me to make a quiche, it prompted me to skinny down this recipe and I’m so glad I did. I can see this previous favorite making it’s way back into regular rotation at our dinner (and breakfast) table!

Ingredients:
– 1 premade pie crust (i used pillsbury roll out dough)
– 6 slices of bacon
– 2-3 cups of fresh spinach
– 5 slices of swiss cheese
– 1/2 cup 1% milk
– 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
– 4 eggs + 4 whites
– Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. preheat oven to 400
2. Using kitchen scissors, cut raw bacon into small pieces. Fry bacon and drain fat. Set aside.
3. Use kitchen scissors to cut swiss cheese slices into small pieces too. Set aside.
4. Use kitchen scissors to cut baby spinach into smaller pieces. I roughly cut each leaf into 4’s. Set aside.
5. Unroll pie crust into a deep dish glass pie pan.
6. Place 1/2 spinach into crust, followed by 1/2 of bacon and 1/2 of cheese. Repeat layer.
7. Put Eggs, Egg whites, milk, salt & pepper, and yogurt into a blender. Blend just until everything is smooth.
8. Pour egg evenly mixture over other ingredients inside the pie crust.
9. Cover pan with aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes.
10. Uncover pan and bake an additional 15 minutes.
11. Allow quiche to cool at least 5 minutes before serving.

    I made this to give to someone else. It looked and smelled so great I need to make for myself! Silly me only for enough yogurt for one.
