Weight Watchers Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche Recipe

Ingredients:
– 6 oz pie crust, 9-inch, refrigerated
– 2 tsp olive oil
– 1/2 cup red onions, chopped
– 1 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
– 1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
– 1 large egg
– 2 large egg white
– 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
– 1 tsp dried oregano
– 1 tbsp fresh chopped dill
– 1/2 tsp table salt, or more to taste
– 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or more to taste
– 10 oz frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well-drained
– 1 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

TIP: Not a broccoli fan? Substitute spinach in its place.

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Press pie crust into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch, removable-bottom tart pan or a 9-inch pie pan; refrigerate until ready to use.
To make filling, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Transfer onion to a large bowl and add ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, egg, egg whites, mustard, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well and fold in broccoli. Spoon mixture into prepared crust and level surface with a wooden spoon; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and chopped dill.
Bake until a knife inserted near center comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.

  1. I am making this for a brunch tomorrow and was surprised to see that it hasn’t been converted to PP values. =(

  2. Can you substitute eggbeaters for egg and egg whites? If so, how much?  

  3. What is the points plus value of this recipe? I would love to try it.

    I made this recipe and I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed.

    I do love quiche oh so very much and was hesitant to believe it could actually compare. But if you're looking for something flavorful and filling, this is it.

    I personally added the spinach and broccoli together and left the onions raw and I'm glad I did. The natural juice in the onion added more flavor and got rid of the need for the oil. I also made a low calorie pie crust that is much better than the Pillsbury.

  5. This was awesome!!! To cut back on calories a little more, I omitted the olive oil for sauteeing the onion. Instead of OV, I sprayed a little pam in the pan before adding the onions. If they got a little dry, I added a splash of low sodium chicken broth. Also, instead of salt, I used garlic salt, and I also added some cayenne pepper. This was DELICIOUS. I will definitely make this one again, and again, and again! Thanks for posting!! :)

  6. Oh I MUST try this!!! I've been wanting some new breakfast ideas!!
