Spinach, mushroom & asiago quiche

January 14, 2015

I made my first quiche today! I don’t do eggs.. I know I know, who doesn’t like eggs?? Unfortunately this girl. 🙁  I have tried and tried to acquire a taste and just cant seem to enjoy them. I hate it because my husband could live on eggs and the smell of them cooking drives me crazy, like I wish I could sink my teeth into them and enjoy every bite! 😉 Anyhow my dear husband requested a quiche, and although I have never made one before, who I am to disappoint.. so this spinach, mushroom and asiago cheese quiche was born.. I cant tell you on a personal note how it was, but I got two thumbs up from my egg loving husband! 🙂 It serves 8 at 6 smart points per serving.

    I just popped this in the oven and it smells AMAZING! I don’t like mushrooms, so I doubled up on the onions and added garlic.

    Just a note though.. The instructions don’t mention when to add the milk, so I was stuck trying to whisk into the egg mixture after I already poured it on top of the veggies.

    I can’t wait to eat this for breakfast this week!
