Skinny Quiche

Submitted by: THEFITCOOK
Skinny Quiche

Introduction

Every morning, I walk by the French bakery at my building and crave quiche. Creamy, cheesy, gooey quiche. And I always resist. Last Sunday, the craving inspired me to try making my own. Alas, I enjoyed creamy and cheesy goodness without any of the guilt. Every morning, I walk by the French bakery at my building and crave quiche. Creamy, cheesy, gooey quiche. And I always resist.

Ingredients

    1 cup fresh baby spinach
    1 whole egg
    2 egg whites
    1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
    3 tablespoons milk (1 or 2%)
    2 tablespoons grated Gouda cheese, divided
    cooking spray (butter)

Tips

You can substitute fresh spinach with 1/4 cup frozen spinach (thawed) and skip step 2.


Directions

Here's How:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
2. Preheat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the spinach plus one tablespoon of water. Season lightly with salt, and cook until wilted. Transfer the spinach to a plate lined with paper towel to absorb excess water.
3. In a large bowl, whisk together the egg, egg whites, mustard, milk, 1 tablespoon of Gouda cheese, and cooked spinach until smooth. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
3. Spray a ramekin with cooking spray, then pour in the egg mixture. Top with the remaining Gouda cheese.
4. Place the ramekin in a baking dish and fill the baking dish with 1 or 2 inches of hot water. Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 35 minutes. Use a toothpick to check that the egg is cooked through.
