3/4 cup diced low-salt, reduced-fat ham
1/2 cup chopped green onions
Vegetable cooking spray
Cherry tomatoes (optional)
Green onion slices (optional)
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Place first 8 ingredients in a food processor, and process 1 minute or until smooth. Combine egg substitute mixture, cheddar cheese, ham, and green onions in a medium bowl; stir well. Pour mixture into 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with green onion slices and cherry tomatoes, if desired.
OMG, this is an amazing quiche recipe! Very easy, and so cream and rich tasting. I have added chopped tomatoes and mushrooms (uncooked, chopped small) and used smoked turkey for variety. Also, i use more hot sauce and fresh ground pepper. I make this for any occasion that calls for quiche - workday breakfasts, weekend brunches, and holiday company snacks.
I make this with a gluten free flour (and xanthan gum) and use some real eggs. I also use one cup real milk instead of the water/milk powder. This is great because you can use whatever vegetables you have and make a great breakfast. The leftovers are good cold for a few days too.
This is such an excellent recipe. I've used it as a base and changed it to a mexican style quiche, a mozzarella/tomato/basil, turkey bacon and cheese, etc. It's fabulous and I think it's ridiculous to give it a low rating because you only cook with certain ingredients..I make this about once a week and change up the ingredients so that it always feels fresh. DELICIOUS
When I cook I use genuine ingredients & have developed a real dislike for extremes with low fat, etc. Unless there is a medical reason for extreme diets, I just eat less but enjoy it more when taste is better.
this is my go to breakfast recipe for weekend guests. 2 issues: 1. I always have a hard time getting it out of the pan (yes I sprayed it! Maybe next time, I will use real oil) 2. the cooking time is not accurate. It always needs about 10-15 extra minutes. Regardless, very yummy! I use canadian bacon for the added flavor
I have been making this recipe for years and it's always good. I love it because you can put just about any veggies and meats and cheeses that you prefer. I have made this for special occasions and it's always a hit. One tip: if you add more veggies, decrease the amt. of water to 1/2 c.
