When my grandparents were in town my family was indulging in the local arizona flavors… for breakfast one morning i made a yummy southwest style quiche that was a BIG hit! added bonus of being easy and quick to prepare.
4 eggs + 2 1 egg white
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup low fat ricotta cheese
6 tbs bread crumbs (i crumbed up 2 pieces of toast)
Southwest veggie mix (can get frozen w/ corn, black beans, red pepper aka capsicum, & onions)
A few jalepenos
1 tsp chili flakes
1 garlic clove
1 tbs sour cream
sprinkling of cheddar cheese.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
In skillet saute southwest veggies, garlic, chili flakes, jalepenos in 1 tbs olive oil…
Toast two pieces of bread crumble. Grease an 8 X 8 inch pan and lay crumbs down.
In separate bowl combine eggs, ricotta, skim milk, sour cream, and southwest veggies… pour over bread crumbs.
Top with shreaded cheese. (can be prepared the night before preparation and refrigerated)
Bake for 25 minutes at 400 degrees F. You may need to switch oven to broil for the final minute to brown the top. Eat with loved ones and season if necessary ;)
