This was really delicious, but the bacon and onion were a bit on the raw side, so the next time I made it I cooked the bacon and onion in a small frying pan first.-05 Jun 2016(Review from this site AU | NZ)


SW recipe: Crustless cheddar, onion and courgette quiche

Low calorie cooking spray
4 onions, peeled, halved and thinly sliced
3 large courgettes, thinly sliced
300g bottle roasted peppers in brine, drained and finely chopped 12 large eggs
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
4 tbsp tomato purée
2 tsp dried mixed herbs
160g reduced fat Cheddar cheese, grated
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:

1.Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C Fan/Gas 4.

2.Spray a large frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and sauté the onions over a medium-low heat for around 15 minutes until lightly browned. Transfer to a wide bowl and set aside.

3.Wipe the frying pan with kitchen paper and re-spray with low calorie cooking spray. Place over a medium heat, add the courgette and stir-fry for around 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from the heat and add to the onions along with the roasted red peppers.

4.Beat the eggs with the garlic, tomato purée, dried herbs and three quarters of the cheese. Season well.

5.Lightly spray a round, ceramic deep pie dish (about 30cm across) with low calorie cooking spray.

6.Put the onions, courgettes and red peppers in the prepared dish and pour over the egg mixture. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes until almost set.

7.Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and return to the oven for another 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top and just set.

8.Remove from the oven and serve warm or at room temperature, cut into wedges.

Tip: Replace the Cheddar cheese with creamy blue cheese for a different flavour.

Slimming Tip 1 – Don’t go hungry
If you are hungry you need to eat. Depriving your body of food will just see you miserable and maybe even grabbing the high fat, high sugar foods instead. And that’s really not going to help.

Slimming Tip 2 – Fill up on Super Slimming Foods
Now no food has the power to actually slim you down, but the foods with the least calories for the most amount of filling power will cut your calorie intake without you even realising.
These foods what to take priory over other foods, by filling your plate with at least 1/3 of the Super Slimming Foods will see the lbs literally drop off.

Slimming Tip 3 – Plan Plan Plan
Fail to plan is planning to fail. Make a solid plan not only for the foods and meal you are going to enjoy but also what might get in your way. If you know you have a night out, that’s fine, just plan… What food will you order? What drinks will you order? And stick to your plan for amazing weight losses.

With so many slimming world meals that can be adapted to your lifestyle. From batch cooking and making the most of your time by using the slow cooker.

Quick Crustless Savoury Tart (Quiche)

I recently celebrated a birthday (amazing how they come around EVERY year…) and we did this by inviting friends over to our place for a bit of brunch.

I had originally said that I was going to keep it simple – croissants, cheese, ham, fruit and maybe a cake… but the day before, I decided to do a little bit more… and that meant freshly baked blueberry muffins, lemon drizzle loaf, fruit kebabs, a birthday cake (recipe coming soon) and for those with more of a savoury tooth… this crustless savoury tart (quiche)

The recipe is in the Snowflake book of baking that my mom gave me in 2001 and is probably the most used cookbook in my kitchen and every recipe that I have tried from it has been a success! From jam slices to Biscuits for a biscuit maker to apple tart recipes.. they have all been simple and super tasty!

Would I make this Crustless Savoury Tart (quiche) again? hell yes… it goes down an absolute treat and is ready in just under an hour!

Crustless Savoury Tart (Quiche)

250g bacon (chopped)
250g button mushrooms (chopped)
salt to taste
15ml butter
a good pinch of dried herbs
200g grated cheese (I used cheddar)
2 eggs
1 cup milk
50ml self-raising flour

How do you know when this Crustless Quiche Lorraine is cooked?

You should cook this quiche until the top is turning golden, and the egg has just set in the centre – it may have a slight wobble.

This should take approx 20 minutes in the oven. Times will vary if you’re using a deeper pie dish for example.

Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.

Delicious quick crustless quiche and salad

Options

I’m all about you being able to personalize the recipe. My theory is that if you can make some easy adjustments to suit yours and your family’s needs, you’ll make the recipe over and over again.

Some options involve add-ins, and some involve substitutions. I’ll give you a list of both, then you can pick and choose what best suits your needs. Feel free to mix and match, depending what’s in your refrigerator and pantry on the day.

Add-ins:

  • diced onion, chopped chives, spring onions, eschallots, scallions
  • finely diced bell pepper/ capsicum
  • asparagus cut to 1/2 inch lengths
  • chopped tomatoes (just make sure there’s not too much juice or it will affect how your quiche binds while baking)
  • small chunks tinned pineapple (again, remember the juice thing)
  • corn kernels
  • crushed garlic
  • tinned tuna (although you might like to take out the bacon first – not sure how bacon & tuna would go together?!)
  • finely sliced mushrooms
  • grated carrot, grated zucchini/ courgette
  • halved cherry tomatoes (add great color!)
  • tiny florets of broccoli or cauliflower
  • basil leaves
  • sliced pitted olives

Substitutions:

If you’re interested in a low fat crustless quiche recipe that is light in calories but heavy in flavor, consider the following substitutions:

  • use skim milk
  • replace two eggs with egg whites
  • reduce butter and olive oil to 3/4 tablespoon each
  • trim fat from bacon
  • use low-fat or reduced fat cheese
  • reduce cheese quantity to 3/4 cup
  • replace bacon with vegetables

Replacing bacon with vegetables, reducing cheese, butter, and olive oil, and using low fat options, each slice of quiche becomes only 110 calories!

Little Helpers

Depending on your kids’ ages, they can help you prepare the add-ins. Breaking off broccoli florets, grating cheese, crushing garlic, or even slicing mushrooms if they’re old enough to use a knife. My children are always (a little!) more likely to eat vegetables when they’ve helped prepare them. (Although now that I’ve said that, maybe I’ve jinxed myself?!)

Little helpers grow up to become a big help.

And Finally…

I usually add a side salad – although (if I’m honest) I’m more successful sometimes than at other times. Lettuce, a few wedges of tomato, and cucumber and carrot sticks are fine to add colour, crunch, and nutrients. And in my (totally unqualified!) opinion, a salad balances out some of the cheese.

I add a large slice to school & office lunchboxes because the crustless quiche is still scrumptious the next day.

My kids think no meal is complete without a dessert, so I would recommend serving some no bake cheesecake along with this quiche to satisfy the sweet tooth in your house.

I hope you love this delicious, quick and easy quiche as much as I do, and that it becomes one of your busy-day staples.

It strikes me that this crustless quiche would be great for breakfast, although it would probably involve pre-setting the oven on a timer, which always makes me a bit stressed. Unless you don’t mind waiting for an hour or so for breakfast, after you get up. Personally, I’m usually ravenous as soon as I get out of bed.

However, if you had leftovers (we didn’t) then you could certainly have a slice cold for breakfast. Or gently rewarm in the oven (or not so gently in the microwave).

We ate this entire crustless quiche between the three of us, but DH and I both had huge portions. I’d say it makes 3-4 more usual sized servings.
