I made this recipe last night and was so surprised and pleased with how it turned out. My husband and I loved it as much as my full-fat quiche recipe. Served with fruit or a healthy, green salad, you have a complete meal. I don't use WW Points, but if you do, it has a Points Plus Value of 5. Original recipe called for 2 large eggs and 3 large egg whites, but I tested with 4 eggs and had perfect results. Placing recipe here for safe keeping. =)

How To Make spinach & cheese quiche (ww 5 points, 250 calorie)

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare pie crust. If using frozen deep-dish pie crust, defrost first.
  • 2
    Whisk together evaporated milk, cottage cheese, Parmesan, eggs, onion powder, salt and pepper until well combined.
  • 3
    Spread spinach evenly over bottom of pie shell. Place pie pan on foil-lined cookie sheet.
  • 4
    Carefully pour egg mixture into pie shell.
  • 5
    Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees. Cover crust with tin foil. I cut a large hole in the center of a square of foil. Lower oven temp. to 350 degrees and bake for another 15-20 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cut into 8 wedges. 250 calories each.
