A South Beach Diet, Crustless Breakfast Quiche Recipe: For all Phases
A South beach lifestyle
Quick low carb recipe:
I love my wife, obviously, but specifically for the fact that she is a healthy woman. She is healthy and because of this I eat better and know more about how to be healthy myself. If it wasn't for her I would just eat to my, slowly corrupted by cholesterol, hearts content.
She is, happily, always doing some form of the South Beach Diet®, which I like. I don't miss crappy carbs anyway, I miss good carbs sometimes but such is the life of a healthy person? Anyway, i digress. The point is, she makes awesome breakfast quiche all the time! Its great and easy and I am here to share this great low carb recipe with you. This works for Phase 1 -3 south beach or when you fall off the wagon. It is just good!
Put your South Beach breakfast together
The process for the South Beach Diet style breakfast quiche is super simple. The reward is super good, tasty and you don't have to stop at fast food to get your breakfast on.
Take the ingredients and get them into small pieces so they mix well. These ingredients are just what we did but you can do any thing at all. Just do it at night and it will be ready to go for you in the morning.
Whisk up 8 eggs and add a little water, the more you whisk the fluffier the eggs and the more they rise. Do this in a bowl that you can pour out of easily. Add in the cottage cheese and ricotta first so you can mix it up well in the bowl. Then place the rest of the ingredients, reserving some cheese for the top of the quiche at the end.
You can then pour this mixture into whatever type of container you have that can be used to bake with, mini bread pans like the ones to the right, cupcake pans with foil or anything else that can be then wrapped up in a small portable package. We prefer the cupcake pan with foil. The cupcake foil you can get at the grocery store and I recommend that you just use the foil part and discard the paper because it sticks.
This particular time we did little 6in bread tins which you can bring to work for a 2 day breakfast meal. Or one day if you are like me!
Once you have the quiche in its vessel, bake at 375º for roughly 30min. When you can put a knife in it and pull it out cleanly or it is nice and firm, then it is done.
Just pop in the microwave for a minute, covered, and eat on the road or at work. Kids absolutely love them. Just give it a try to I believe you will be surprised by how simple these are and how much time you save in the morning trying to run around and get ready.
Only fill your vessel to about 3/4 full as these will rise. Notice that we didn't use the cupcake tin but just the loose cupcake foil and it still worked out. See the images to the right! Package them individually for on the go deliciousness.
