Crustless Spinach Quiche

Now that the chickens are laying eggs I am looking high and low for recipes that incorporate eggs!  I never really had much quiche growing up so this is something new to me.  This particular recipe intrigued me because of the addition of spinach.  I love spinach!! 

 Crustless Spinach Quiche

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 link Italian Chicken sausage
12 egg whites
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained VERY WELL or 1-2 cups fresh spinach 
salt and pepper to taste

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a large skillet heat olive oil, onion, and garlic.  saute until lightly browned
3. Cut sausage into small cubes and set aside
4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk egg whites
5. Add cheese, sausage, spinach, sauteed onion and garlic and salt and pepper
6. Lightly spray a 9 inch glass pie dish with non-stick cooking spray and pour mixture into it. 
7. Place dish in oven and bake 40-45 minutes until center is no longer liquid.
Makes 4 servings

If you use frozen spinach your cooking time may take longer, I know mine did so that is why I started using the fresh spinach.  

You can have this recipe for dinner or breakfast. I am stuck on it for dinner but then we have the leftovers for breakfast (well usually my husband does, he loves it!!)
