Healthy Breakfast Quiche

June Campbell


This healthy breakfast quiche is fast and easy, since it uses a whole wheat tortilla instead of a pastry crust. If you wish to make it even lighter, you can omit the tortilla and make it as a crustless quiche. The ingredients can be mixed and matched as desired. Use other vegetables, omit the turkey sausage, use ham or bacon instead -- you get the picture. Use what's in the fridge and you'll be pleased with the results.
