Broccoli, Turkey Bacon & Cheese Quiche

I love quiches. They are so easy and you can pretty much put anything in it and not go wrong. And it can be a healthy meal if done right, which I try to do most of the time. Here's mine and DH's dinner from tonight. We always have fun making it together and of course, eating it together. It also makes for a great breakfast with the leftovers.

















1 premade pie crust (we use Pillsbury, the store brand ones seem to fall apart on me)
2 eggs
4 egg whites
1/4 cup fat free half and half
salt & pepper to taste
4 slices of cooked turkey bacon
1/2 bunch of broccoli chopped
1/4 cup chopped scallions
1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese mix, light version
a few shavings of Asiago cheese (I didn't measure, I just used the microplane, probably was 1/4 cup)

Preheat the oven to 375.
Whisk together the eggs and salt & pepper and set aside. Place the pie crust in a pie plate coated with nonstick spray.
Place the broccoli, scallions and turkey bacon in the pie crust. Top with the egg mixture, followed by the cheeses.
Cook for approximately 20 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Looks beautiful and I especially like that it's a lighter version of the traditional recipe :)
