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)

Step-by-Step

  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.
