Becky's Healthier Ham and Cheese Quiche

Recipe by  

"I have been on a permanent quest to find the perfect quiche recipe. As a self-professed breakfast food, cheese, and egg lover, quiche represents to me all that is right and good in a culinary concoction. Traditionally quiche is not a healthy option, what with all the cream and cheese that typically goes into it. I have literally experimented with different versions of a healthier quiche for years, but a couple of weeks ago I stumbled upon the perfect mixture, and I am pleased to share it here with all of you."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Unroll pie crust and press into an 8-inch pie dish.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir green onions until wilted and beginning to brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat. Spread ham over prepared pie crust and top with green onions.
  3. Whisk egg substitute, evaporated milk, and mozzarella cheese in a bowl. Pour over ham mixture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and garnish with chives.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Increase heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) and continue baking until quiche is browned, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow quiche to rest until eggs are set, about 30 minutes more.

Delicious alternative to the original unhealthy recipes! I took it one step furthur and make my own 'healthier' crust: 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (OR 1/2 cup pastry flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat all purpose flour) 1/4 tsp Kosher salt 1/4 cup water 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil Mix together until just blended. Press into pie plate with fingers until an even layer is formed.

Delicious! This was as good as a restaurant quiche and much better for you. I only used half the ham because 1/2 pound seemed to much and I used four eggs instead of the egg substitute because this was for my family and I prefer not to use 'diet' stuff instead of real. Next time I'll add a little more scallions because I love their flavor but this was so good!

It needs to be mentioned that the Quiche should be put on the 2nd rack level of your stove. I had it at mid level and the cooking time wasn't enough. Once I moved it, it cooked wonderfully. Also be aware of the crust you are using. Mine was a bit sweet. Frozen crust don't work well either as there's just too much moisture in the overall end product..resulting in a very soggy crust. Next time (and there will be a next time) I'm making my own crust. Sadly, this was so good that three people ate it all in one sitting. That kind of defeats the purpose.

Really delicious. I ended up using an egg white only substitute, and though it was a little moist for the pie crust it was very delicious. Will definitely be making it again
