Zucchini Crust Quiche

Items that you’ll need:

1 round, glassware baking dish
1 vegetable peeler

6 eggs
1/2 cup Pete & Gerry’s Organic Cage Free Liquid Egg Whites
1 medium zucchini
2 cups chopped fresh organic spinach
1/2 cup diced Nature’s Promise organic mushrooms, (available at Stop n Shop)
1/2 cup diced onion
5 oz. freshly shaved Parmesan
2 pieces of Nature’s Promise Organic Pre-cooked Hickory Smoked Bacon, (available at Stop n Shop)
olive oil spray

Lightly coat a large cooking pan with olive oil spray, & sauté the diced onions & mushroom on medium heat.
Add the spinach & continue sautéing until excess water has evaporated.
Wash & peel the zucchini skin, and peel the zucchini, evenly on four sides, creating thin, flat strips of zucchini, until the center & the seeds are visible. Discard the center & the seeds of the zucchini.
Place the zucchini strips in a separate dish & microwave for 1 minute. Drain moisture.
Spray the round, glassware baking dish with olive oil spray.
Lay the zucchini strips in a cross-section pattern in the dish to form what will become the crust.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Heat the pre-cooked bacon in the microwave for 20 seconds. Break into small pieces.
In a large mixing bowl, scramble the eggs & the 1/2 cup egg whites thoroughly. Add the sautéd spinach, onions, mushrooms, bacon, & 4 1/2 oz. of the shaved Parmesan, and scramble thoroughly again.
Gently pour the mixture into the round, glassware baking dish onto the zucchini strips.
Gently lay the remaining shavings of Parmesan evenly atop the mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until eggs have set.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
