Clean Breakfast Quiche


I don't like to eat things that just aren't the way they're supposed to be which is the reason I don't like breakfast quiche. It looks like pie, it's on pie crust, but it is NOT pie. However I love eggs, I love sausage, I love veggies, and I love a bunch of stuff thrown together. So I decided to throw it all together and make a crust-less breakfast quiche. I cooked it up in a cake pan and it is clean AND approved by my pie-for-breakfast-hating-self and my I-only-grease-for-breakfast BF. And it fed two people for a week for $8.80. So just FYI when I looked at the price of a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch that would feed 2 for one week it was $7. And really unhealthy. And will fill you up for approximately 45 minutes. This protein packed breakfast kept me going till lunch time.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
Servings: 8
Ingredients:
  • Half bag of frozen broccoli (I just thawed out half a bag of frozen broccoli): $1.75
  • 1 Red Pepper chopped $.75
  • Half bag of spinach $2.00
  • Half pound 97% lean ground turkey $2.00
  • Half onion chopped $.50
  • 5 eggs $1.80

Cook the ground turkey in one pan. While that's cooking saute the pepper and onion in a separate pan. Once the onions are translucent add in the spinach and cook until the spinach is sauteed (I usually throw 3 tablespoons of water so the spinach doesn't dry out). Scramble the eggs. Mix all the stuff together in a big bowl, throw it in a cake pan and cook at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes (or until the egg is cooked).

  6. Approximately how much would 1/2 bag of broccoli and spinach be? I shop at Costco, and I am thinking those bags may be much larger than you are meaning?

    1. I have the same question. How big of a bag of broccoli and spinach did you use for this recipe? I bought 12 oz bag of frozen broccoli and 10 oz bag of spinach

  7. I made this yesterday. I changed a few things . I didn't have any broccoli so I added 1/4 cup of fetta and I used egg whites rather than whole eggs. But when I divided it into 8 the portion was SO small ( in my oppinion) that I made toast to go with it. It was tasty. I also made all the other salads, marinades and prep work for the entire week. The bean burgerssmell effing redicliously delicious.
