Here's a savory, healthful, time-saving twist to breakfast quiche. Use portabella mushroom caps instead of high-fat pie pastry to make individual quiches.


  • 4 portabella mushrooms (3-inch diameter)
  •   cooking spray
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 egg whites from 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat grated bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium garlic & herb blend
  • 1 cup cooked and drained, chopped, frozen spinach
  • 1/4 cup reduced-fat Parmesan cheese, divided


  1. Place oven rack in center of oven; preheat oven to 375 degF.
  2. Remove portabella stems; wipe clean with damp paper towel.
  3. Spray baking sheet with cooking spray, and place mushroom caps on baking sheet.
  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together all remaining ingredients, except 1 tbsp Parmesan cheese.
  5. Coat 10-inch non-stick pan with cooking spray and heat over medium flame.
  6. Cook and scramble egg mixture until it just starts to thicken. Remove from heat.
  7. Using a large spoon, scoop partially cooked, hot egg mixture into portabella caps.
  8. Sprinkle tops with remaining Parmesan cheese. Bake about 20 minutes.
  9. Serve immediately.


Serving Suggestions: Serve with strawberries and orange slices (or other fresh, frozen, or canned fruit), water with lime or lemon slice/wedge.
