My BFF, Janice, makes an amazing breakfast quiche recipe that her whole family loves, so, inspired by her, I created my own version. And wow, is it GOOD!

This Cheesy Spinach and Mushroom Quiche recipe is sooooo easy, and the end result is a beautiful, ridiculously delicious, mouthwatering treat. Though quiche is typically considered a breakfast food, it makes a wonderful dinner or lunch too.

Though I chose spinach and mushrooms to use, you can really use any kind of vegetable you want. Also, I used a premade whole wheat pie shell for this, which I bought at Whole Foods, and it is excellent. However, I couldn’t find a good, low calorie premade pie shell, so this recipe came out a little higher in Points than I originally wanted.

If you are crafty enough to make your own low calorie pie shell from scratch, then A. you are awesome, and B. It might shave off another Point or so, or allow for larger servings. Either way, it’s an incredibly healthy quiche that is still way lower in Weight Watchers Points than traditional quiche recipes.

This dish is a must try!

    Bet it would be great with a phyllo dough crust too.
