Healthy alternative to quiche. This more of a method than a recipe. The bell pepper can be filled with any of your favorite quiche recipe. It presents very nicely when you have guests over and can easily be prepared the night before and placed in oven the next morning. Hope everyone enjoys it!!

Love how healthy this is. Made using eggbeaters and fat free cheese, also used the frozen spinach option. The bell pepper makes a wonderful sweet base for these little quiches. I did not dresses these up, how ever even with out being dressed up they made a very nice presentation. Thanks so much for the post.
