Easy Southwest Quiche: For breakfast or dinner!

FoodFood for the Body
May 5, 2011 / By / , , , , , / Post a Comment

This quiche is super easy (only 6 ingreds!), and it’s always a hit!  I just made it for Easter brunch, and even the 13 month old devoured it!  (Thanks, Donovan!)

I didn’t have time to arrange all the ingreds nicely into a photo, so I’ll just list what you’re going to need:

a bag of turkey pepperoni

1 pkg. frozen spinach, thawed

8 egg whites

1/2 c. of pepper jack cheese (if too spicy, you can use queso fresco, crumbled)

1/2 c. half and half (you can play w/ this one, too)

1/4 c. salsa

olive oil spray

a 10″ quiche dish (I just use a pie tin)

a whisk

Preheat oven to 400.

I added a few yolks for the vitamins, but you can do all whites!

A half cup…

Add to the eggs and beat w/ a whisk (or fork) lightly.  The more you beat, the fluffier your quiche!

The recipe calls for 1 cup of cheese, but I only use 1/2 cup.

If I don’t have time, or forgot to thaw the spinach, I put it frozen in a strainer, and run cold water over it.  Then I squeeze it through the strainer to dry it.  (the picture of this step was too blurry to use!)  Then I added about a cup, or 8-10 oz.  That’s usually half or so of the bag of frozen spinach.

I use about 1/2 a bag of turkey pepperoni. 

Then I chop it up.  Chop ’em as finely as you want! 

It’s coming together! 

I like a bit of spice, but you can use any type of salsa.  Add 1/4 cup.

Spray the pan w/ olive oil, and fill with quiche batter.

Put in the oven for 20 minutes–or til center is set.

Cut and serve w/ some salsa.  Voila!

Sidenote:  I love this recipe for dinner because it is packed with protein, and not too packed with carbs.  A great combo for your body and mind @ the end of the day.
