Mushroom Quiche


  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 1 onion, diced medium
  • 1 pound frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 2 cups nonfat skim milk
  • 1 cup nonfat egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp each: garlic powder, black pepper, Italian seasoning


Preheat oven to 350°.  Lightly spray a large nonstick skillet with vegetable oil cooking spray and heat over medium high heat. Saute onion and mushrooms in the oil until they are golden - about three minutes.  Add spinach and cook for four more minutes. Add bread crumbs, stir, and place the mixture into a deep dish quiche pan.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a medium mixing bowl and pour everything over the vegetables in the quiche pan.  Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the center of the quiche is firm. Allow to stand for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.
