Low fat, low carbos'and lots of fiber, neat recipie (Around 8 slices is 142 calories a piece). I make all the recipes I review several times before I review them. My final master piece is this: I took 4 bags of organic fresh spinach (don't know the ounces, sorry. Just got the pre-packaged stuff.) Microwaved with some water for about 8 min. Then drained and sautéed to evaporate the water along with one clove of garlic. I like garlic but not for breakfast. Optional-I've added onion and mushrooms and sautéed them along with the spinach. Funny thing is the onion didn't make that much of a difference in taste so I've eliminated it. Then i add only 6 ounces of 1/3 fat cream cheese (I don't think it needs a whole stick) I also only use a 1/4 or less of Parmesan cheese. I don't like one flavor over powering a dish unless it is suppose to. I used 2 egg whites instead of whole eggs. Mix all the above. I lay 5 slices of Muenster or mozz on the bottom, pour in the spinach and don't top it with more cheese-- it doesn't need it. Bake as usual. I found it's sometimes salty so watch which Muenster cheese you add.

This is a favorite recipe at class cafe. We only use 1 pkg. spinach and we use 2 cups shredded mozzarella mixed with a heaping Tb. of flour and pressed into a pie plate for the crust. We also like to make mini quiche in a cupcake pan. I am not a fan of spinach as a rule, but this is a keeper!

This is a great recipe, but I did make some changes. I used sliced Colby cheese instead of muenster, and a 16 oz. bag of frozen spinach (which was thawed in the frig.) instead of two 10 oz. boxes. The garlic powder was omitted, and 4 drops of Tabasco sauce used instead. I added 5 brown and serve "light" sausage that were heated up in the microwave first, and then chopped up. I also beat the cream cheese with an electric hand mixer to make it smooth, and beat the eggs in the same way. I layed it out as described in a 9 inch pie pan, stirring the spinach, sausage, parmesan and seasonings into the cream cheese mixture. Baking time was 30 minutes. It was just terrific like this and I will be making it often.
