Recipe: Magic Crust Quiche

Quiche is a great meal to make ahead of time. It makes a nice welcome dish to serve at any time or for any occasion!

In this recipe you can use mostly egg whites and just one or two egg yokes. Eggs are a good source of protein. And you can use whatever veggies you have on hand.

This recipe reduces the amount of calories and carbs compared to a regular crust.
