I did a little brainstorming and came up with this lil baby.
Here's what you'll need to make this protein packed slice of heaven.
2 egg whites
1/2 cup organic fat free milk
1 cup frozen spinach, thawed and wrung of water
1/2 red pepper, diced
2 scallions, diced
2 slices Trader Joe's uncured turkey bacon
1/2 cup Trader Joe's Swiss & Gruyere blend
1 oz Sartori Bellavitano Balsamic cheese (or similar cheese like Asiago or parmesan)
Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
Cook your turkey bacon and cut or crumble, set aside. Ready your veggies including thawing the spinach for 1 minute in the microwave then wring out all of the water.
In a medium bowl, add your eggs and whites.
Mix until well combined. Add any spices if you like. I used a few grinds of black pepper, a shake or two of thyme and a dash of garlic powder but you can use whatever salt free spices you like.
Add your thawed and squeezed spinach, red peppers, Swiss/Gruyere blend and scallions, stir to combine.
Add a generous spray of butter flavored cooking spray to a pie pan on the bottom and sides.
Add egg mixture. Sprinkle turkey bacon on top making sure it's evenly distributed.
Bake at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.
When it comes out of the oven, grate your one ounce of balsamic cheddar.
Sprinkle evenly over the top and let it melt.
Let it cool for about 5 minutes and then cut into 6 wedges and get ready to dive in.
This isn't necessarily a whole breakfast thing that could sustain you all morning so add a slice to a bowl of fruit, a slice of sprouted bread with natural peanut butter or whatever you like for a good balance.
