Broccoli Cheese Quiche -

Broccoli Cheese Quiche –


Quiche is one of my favorite ways not only to meal prep for the week, but to use up leftover food in my fridge.  That is how I made this broccoli cheese quiche.  With bacon.  Everything is better with bacon!

If you are new to WW, or looking for quick and easy dishes, this one clicks all the boxes.   Bacon bits can be bought in bulk at Sam’s Club.  They last a long time and are only 25 calories a tablespoon and a great way to get that bacon flavor without going to the hassle of cooking up bacon.

Try using sliced potatoes for your quiche.  Perfect for two reasons.  It’s delicious.  Because I use this as a meal prep, simply reheat the quiche upside down in a skillet so the potatoes get crispy again.  So good.

Part of my weekly meal prep too is to bake off several baked potatoes.  You can microwave, or this time I used my air fryer. 

Meanwhile I washed and completely dried the potatoes, sprayed them with avocado oil spray, salt and pepper and baked at 400 for 40 minutes.  Such crispy skin, especially if you are eating right away.

Lastly bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.  Just let it sit for about 15 minutes before slicing.  To reheat, simply cook in a skillet, potato crust side down, and heat for 5-7 minutes to crisp the potato.

What can you put in a quiche?

The possibilities are endless!  Even though I steamed the broccoli in this dish ahead of time, you can put in raw veggies.  Personally I would saute mushrooms or peppers if I was adding those, but feel free to add whatever veggies and cheese you have on hand.  I’ve also used unsweetened almond milk and skim milk too.
