Crustless Zucchini and Bacon Quiche

I love quiche, and if you haven't noticed I've been on quite a zucchini kick. This is perfect for all of us because it is crust less. And your non WLS family members will love it! My DH loved it! It actually reminds me of a Spanish tortilla (omelet). So good.

  • 1 medium yellow or white onion, chopped fine

  • 8 slices turkey bacon

  • 1/2 Tablespoon butter (it needs a little bit of fat because I cut out the half and half and subbed it for skim milk)

  • 3 cups shredded zucchini (drained well)

  • 2 cups low fat cheddar cheese, grated

  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

  • 4 eggs, beaten

  • 1/2 cup skim milk

  • 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese

  • 1 tablespoon flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • black pepper

  • cooking spray

Preheat the oven to 350. In a large skillet, melt the butter and add the diced onion and bacon, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Cook until the onions are clear and turkey bacon is browned. Add to bowl. Add zucchini, cheddar and mozzarella and mix well. In a separate bowl beat eggs. Then whisk in milk, parm cheese, flour, salt, nutmeg, garlic powder and pepper. Add to zucchini mixture. Pour into a well greased pie pan. Bake for about an hour or until center is set. This is phenomenal.
