Quiche Lorraine

One of my all-time favorite foods to eat is quiche. It's breakfast, it's lunch, and it's delicious any time of the day!

 

This recipe is a wonderful base for any quiche. Quick, simple and healthier than most, as it requires no heavy cream or half and half.

It calls for onion, bacon,and swiss cheese, but I've been known to change it up a bit depending on my mood. This time around I added fresh spinach. Try cheddar and ham, or mix it up with bell peppers and mushrooms. Anyway, you make it, I guarantee it will be delicious!

Looking for less calories and/or fat? Try using turkey bacon, egg whites and low-fat swiss cheese. Perhaps a low-carb version would suit your fancy? Instead of using a crust, just spray your pie pan with Pam and add the ingredients as usual! :)
