Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Pierce squash several times with a fork, and place in a microwave-safe dish. Microwave on high for 10 minutes, turn over, and continue cooking 10 minutes more. Squash flesh should be very tender inside. Set aside to cool.
  3. Cut squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Shred 1/2 cup of squash and place in a mixing bowl. Stir in egg, egg whites, evaporated milk, mozzarella cheese, and spinach until well combined. Spray a 9 inch pie place or quiche dish with cooking spray. Spread bread crumbs in the bottom and around the sides to coat. Pour egg mixture into prepared dish.
  4. Bake quiche in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes before cutting. Serve warm or at room temperature.

It could be bland, but I gave this recipe more kick by adding sauteed mushrooms, scallions and red onion to the mix with crushed garlic. I also replaced the cup of mozzerella cheese with a cup of jack and half a cup of parmesean. I took out the bread crumbs for a real low carb recipe!

I'm having a hard time reviewing this recipe because I didn't make as-is. I think as-is would be very bland. But this has to be one of the most awesome base recipes ever. With any add-ins you could change this to Bbq, Thai, Mexican, Indian - whatever you feel that night! I threw in literally most of our leftovers and it came out great!! About a 1/4 cup diced each: leftover chicken, mushrooms, onion, cilantro, bleu cheese, and green pepper. It was fan-tastic, and was all gone by the end of the evening! I will go to this recipe over and over again to refresh my leftovers!!!

Delicious and Delightful, the bread crumbs make a perfect light crust (I used italian style) and the squash makes for a nice texture and firmness to the quiche.
