Ham & Spinach Quiche
This rich and satisfying quiche will have you in disbelief at how healthy it really is. The lowfat content and exploding flavor makes this breakfast dish your new (non) guilty pleasure.
Preheat oven to 400°.
Prebake pie crust according to package directions.
Purée cottage cheese in a food processor until smooth. Add egg whites and eggs, and pulse until combined; set aside.
Sauté onion in oil in a skillet over medium heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted, then stir in the ham, chives, and pepper flakes. Transfer spinach mixture to prebaked crust, and place on a baking sheet. Pour egg mixture into the crust.
Sprinkle quiche with cheese and bake 35–40 minutes, or until filling is set in the center.
Whip the cottage cheese until smooth. Then pulse in the eggs and whites just until incorporated.
Sauté the onion, then add spinach by the handful to wilt. Stir in the ham, chives, and pepper flakes.
Arrange the spinach mixture in the prebaked crust; pour the egg mixture over it. Don't worry, all the filling will fit.
