Crustless Ham, Cheese & Spinach Quiche

Note: Little Guy and I think this quiche is AMAZING! It is fairly healthy considering it doesn't have the crust and uses fat free cheese, etc...

Crustless Ham, Cheese and Spinach Quiche


3/4 cup cubed ham
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1 cup reduced fat shredded mexican cheese blend, separated in 1/4 cup and 3/4 cup
3/4 cup fat-free cottage cheese
1/2 cup evaporated fat-free milk
1/2 cup wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup baby spinach leaves


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ham, onion and pepper to pan and sauté 4 minutes until ham is lightly browned.

Spray a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Sprinkle 1/4 cup mexican blend cheese in pie plate. Top with ham mixture.

In a large mixing bowl, gently whisk together the eggs, remaining cheeses, cottage cheese, and evaporated milk.

In a small bowl, stir together the flour and baking powder. Add flour to egg mixture and gently stir in. Add spinach to egg mixture and gently mix in.

Pour the egg mixture over ham mixture in pie plate. Bake for about 45 minutes, until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
