Recipe Time!!! Crustless Spinach Quiche

Since I'm on this new way of thinking about eating and embarking on my lifestyle change....I've been looking for things I can make for breakfast that are fast and easy and something I can pack ahead of time for work. I found this recipe and it completely fits the bill for me!

It's a crustless quiche, so it fits in with my low carb attitude. It's filled with good stuff so it makes me feel happy and it's also filled with spinach which is yummy and helps keep the inside happy and full!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

5 eggs, beaten
1 10-oz package frozen, chopped spinach, thawed
2 cups reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar cheese
16 oz reduced fat cottage cheese (small curd if you can find it)
1 bunch of green onions (sliced thin, only white and light green parts)

Prehead oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9 inch pie plate or cake pan by spraying it with Pam.

Squeeze the spinach in a clean kitchen towel to remove all the water. Add it to a large mixing bowl, separating it into pieces. Add the beaten eggs, cheese, cottage cheese and onions. Also, add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Mix everything well and then pour into prepared pan.

Bake in the oven for about 45 min or until eggs are set.

This is such an awesome recipe. I hope you get a chance to try it soon!

Combine both the healthy benefits of spinach and the melty goodness of cheese, and I'm sure that you'll venture to a world of deliciousness! Also, this is a fine way for kids to start liking vegetables, while giving an impression that they're eating pie.
