This is one of my favourite dishes to make on Slimming world because it’s all inclusive (I don’t have to add veg) so I can grab a slice anytime I’m feeling snacky and not worry about adding in healthy extras.. it’s also REALLY filling on account of the eggs and (for those of you following the plan) totally syn free. I can see how those of you who aren’t on Slimming World might not see this as an uber-healthy dish but the bacon is without it’s fat, the cheese is minimal and low in fat. Most versions of the Slimming World Quiche involved cottage cheese and I cannot abide that stuff so this is my non-cottage cheese version
First I grease a dish (I use fry light but you can use whatever you wish) and then line it with bacon (again I use lean bacon but you can use regular if you prefer) and bake it for 10 minutes. I do this because I don’t totally trust that it will cook underneath the eggs etc, I’m sure it would but y’know.. just to be safe. I then mix together 4 or 5 eggs (yolks and all) and a handful of a light mature cheddar. If you want to measure it and you’re on the plan just be sure that you account for your healthy options worth of cheese and how much of the quiche you will be eating in a day. I might eat half at most. I add in a vegetable of your choosing.. I usually use mushrooms as it’s a breakfast dish for me but broccoli worked really well and I’ll make it with it again. Once the bacon is pre-cooked I pour the mixture into the ‘crust’ and bake for 20mins on 200.. that’s it. It’s so easy to make and SO yummy.. if I make it with just egg, bacon and cheese the whole family will eat it but given that I follow the extra easy plan I have to get in my veg in each meal so for me it’s better to include them so I can go grab a slice whenever I’m feeling peckish.
If I’m having it as part of a meal I add beans (super speedy – ie: they help you lose weight faster) and it really fills me up, if I eat this at 10 I’m good til tea time which works for me cause I’m often too busy to worry about lunch.. although I’ve been really into mugshots recently – has there ever been a faster, tastier food? I don’t think so.. well.. maybe chocolate 😉
Hope you enjoy!
