Throw-Together Quiche

Hubby and I decided to eat dinner separately last night.  I took the opportunity to make Quiche (which Hubby does not like).  Now I didn't have all the ingredients to make the recipe I found so I just made it with what I had.

It was really good, and I made it low fat.  Overall I was very proud of my quiche.

The crust:

3/4 cup oatmeal
1/2 flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons skim milk (or more if needed)

Pulse the oatmeal in a food processor until it is small particles.  Add the flour and salt, pulse again.  Add butter and pulse until the dough comes out like peas.  Add milk and pulse to combine in a large ball.  (You may have to add some more flour or milk to get the dough the right consistency).  Roll out dough, place in pie pan (9 inch).  Bake at 400 degrees for 9 minutes.  Let cool.

The Filling:

3 whole eggs
3 egg whites
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup half and half
1 onion
Veggies (Use what ever you have in the house.  I used asparagus, sweet peppers and spinach.)
Cheese (I used feta and Mexican cheese mix)

Cook the onion on low heat for 20 minutes until they are nice and brown.  Add veggies and cook until they are soft.

In a large bowl mix eggs and milks until combined.

Put cheese in bottom of cooled pie crust.  Add veggies and onion  mixture.  Poor egg mixture over everything.

Bake quiche for 50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean in center.

Enjoy warm or cool.

Yum, I love a good quiche.  It is so easy to eat leftovers and so yummy. I might go have a piece right now.  

I think I could eat quiche all day long.  What do you eat when your family is away (and you can eat what ever you want)?
