So, I am a big eggs for breakfast kind of gal. They are packed with protein and you can mix a ton of ingredients with them, which is a huge plus. They can also be pretty low-calorie if you try hard enough. I love that one quiche can serve my husband and I a quick and delicious microwave breakfast Monday-Thursday after a quick meal prep Sunday evening. It cuts down on cooking time and helps us get out the door.
Below I have my own favorite quiche recipe, but you can spice yours up any way you want! Add or change some vegetables for others, a lot of my friends prefer bacon or ham to turkey, I’ve even gone as far as to add chicken and mushrooms to go for a really different flavor. A key ingredient I’ve found though, is when you are adding in your preferred spices a small splash of maple syrup can really bring out a sweet flavor in the eggs that is phenomenal. I’ve also done weeks where I’ll go for 4 eggs and 3-4 egg whites to increase the protein intake.
1/4 cup Milk (I used unsweetened almond milk but any milk will do)
Chopped Deli Turkey
3 Slices Thin Cheddar Cheese
3 cups Spinach
1 Pie Crust (I used the Pillsbury ready made pie crust)
Pinches of Garlic, Salt, Pepper, Rosemary, Maple Syrup, McCormick BBQ Powder, Sriracha, & Curry (this is all truly to taste/preference, add or remove any spices you like)
I had some spare red onion slices and orange bell pepper so we threw those in for fun
Bake pie crust for pie crust recommended amount of time and then let cool.
Whisk 6 eggs and milk in a bowl, then add in spices of choice and stir in
Put spinach in the pie crust
Put the turkey in the pie crust
Throw in other ingredients (onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, bacon, etc.)
Pour egg mixture evenly on top
Place cheese slices to cover all ingredients
Bake for 25 minutes at 425F (or until eggs are no longer runny inside)
Let cool, then serve or refrigerate.
