Believe it or not, I got the idea for this delicious, crustless Corn Quiche recipe from one of my son’s preschool teachers. The teachers had helped the kids make this one day for their afternoon snack, and when I came to pick up my son, he was still sitting at the table gobbling his down. One of his teachers, Ms. Sylvia, told me that he LOVED it. And it was pretty clear that was true. So, I was excited to recreate it for him at home, and figured I could transform it into a Weight Watchers friendly quiche too! So Ms. Sylvia told me what was in it, and I went to work putting it all together later that week. Because I was wanting to keep the quiche low in Points Plus, I used EggBeaters instead of real eggs. If you prefer real eggs, you’ll want to use 3 large ones in place of the EggBeaters, but it will increase the Points Plus value a bit. It turned out absolutely perfect, and incredibly delicious. And just 4 Points Plus per serving. Thank you, Ms. Sylvia! Your quiche was a hit!
Creamy, sweet and comforting, this simple corn quiche was a total hit. Serve it for breakfast, brunch or dinner and enjoy without feeling an ounce of guilt.
