Recipe by Nicole Brummett
A great tasting quiche thats made healthy. You can of course make this the fattening way :) I do like to add a little bacon or sausage to mine, but it is optional. Prep time is making it without any meat.

Wow, this is really good. I've made crustless quiches before, but have not been happy about how they turned out. This one, however, is a keeper. I browned some ground turkey (93/7) that I seasoned with chili powder, cumin, ground red pepper (just a touch) and, added a diced green bell pepper, a diced red bell pepper, a diced onion and crushed garlic. I kept the spinach, but did not use broccoli or mushrooms. I used only 2 cups of shredded low fat Mexican blend cheese, because that is all I had - but it turned out excellent. Mine was done in 45 minutes. I am thinking up other vegetable combinations to use in this. Thank you for posting!
