I love crustless quiches because they're easy to prepare and they make a delicious high protein meal. The ingredients in this flavorful spinach quiche include Cheddar cheese, bacon, and seasonings.

Serve this quiche with a cup of soup, baked beans, or a simple tossed salad for a fabulous lunch, brunch, or evening meal. Feel free to sauté 1/2 to 1 cup of sliced fresh mushrooms with the onions.


  • 4 slices thick-cut bacon, diced

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion

  • 1 (5- to 6-ounce) package fresh spinach

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar, or cheddar jack blend

  • 1 1/4 cups low-fat milk

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 5 large eggs

  • 1 large egg white

  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 3/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 pinch dried oregano leaves

  • 1 pinch sweet paprika, optional

  3. In a large skillet or sauté pan cook the diced bacon until fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp. Remove to paper towels.

  4. Pour off all but about 1 teaspoon of the bacon grease. Save the bacon grease to use in cornbread or for a flavorful fat for sautéing onions or other vegetables.
