I love cheese. It’s a huge weakness.
When I was younger my Mom would make scrambled eggs and put queso on them. Frickin’ heaven I tell ya! I even asked for that as my ‘birthday supper’.
Breakfast and queso. Can life get any better?
Seeing as my metabolism can no longer keep up with my love for queso, I’ve had to modify a few eating habits. I give you 21 Day Fix Quiche! No yellows here. But we will have to count a blue.
And it bakes in the oven for 40 minutes so you can get your multi-tasking done!
3 Large Eggs
3 Large Egg Whites
3/4 c. almond milk
1 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 c. shredded cheese (I use cheddar)
2 sausage links (I use chicken apple sausage by Applegate. Found by the bacon)
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbsp. butter or cooking spray
Cast iron skillet
Preheat oven to 350
Mix eggs, salt, pepper, almond milk and cheeses together. Set aside.
Melt butter in oven safe skillet or use cooking spray.
Slice sausage into cubes and warm in skillet until a little browned.
Add bell peppers and cook for 3 minutes.
Then stir in the egg mixture and place in oven for 40 minutes or until the egg mixture doesn’t move.
Depending on the size of the skillet, the quiche may be thick or thin. This will affect cooking time.
Cool for 10 minutes.
You can also bake this ahead and freeze it. Just set out to thaw and warm it up for 20 minutes.
Depending on the thickness (mine are thin), I would count 2 slices as a red, half a blue and half a green.
