Ingredients

2 lean turkey bacon slices
1 1/2 cups egg substitute
2 eggs
1 cup reduced-fat, extra-sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup 1 percent milk
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups fat-free cottage cheese (small curd)
2 tsp. olive oil
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cups sliced zucchini
1/4 cup minced fresh basil
1 Tbsp. minced fresh chives
81/4-inch slices fresh tomato

Directions

  1. In a nonstick skillet, cook the turkey bacon slices on both sides until browned. Cut into pieces and set aside.
  2. Beat together the egg substitute, eggs, cheese, milk, flour, baking powder, salt, and cottage cheese.
  3. In the same skillet you cooked the bacon, add the olive oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes. Add the zucchini and sauté for 3 minutes. Add in the basil and chives and cook for 1 minute. Add the vegetable mixture to the egg mixture and mix well.
  4. Pour the mixture into a 3-quart casserole dish. Top the quiche with the bacon pieces and arrange the fresh tomato slices over the top. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Lower the heat to 350 and bake for an additional 35 minutes or until pie is set.
