Clean Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

Share


Yesterday, we brought you the Clean Savory Pie Crust recipe. You didn't really think we would leave you with a recipe like that with nothing to put inside, did you? Try this out! It's a great addition to your morning breakfast and a way to break up the monotony of the scrambled egg white AND it's gluten-free! Best of all, you can eat on it for a few days! (Just make sure you seal a container and refrigerate it.)


Don't forget to prepare the Clean Savory Pie Crust first!

    1. You could make it without, but it would dramatically change the mets. You would have little to no carbs and fewer protein grams/calories.

  2. Do you think this could be baked in a muffin pan instead to make it easier to grab on the go?

    1. Absolutely! Just make mini pie crusts or cut the crusts square and insert into the muffin tins.

  3. Do you bake the crust before you put the egg mixture in?

    1. Yes! Bake the crust prior to adding the egg mixture.
