Sometimes I look forward to the obligatory turkey sandwich after thanksgiving more so than the big meal ;) In anticipation of some leftovers from the upcoming holiday, I tried out a few recipes that would put that turkey to good use! In case you missed the first post, feel free to check out my Curried Turkey Salad.
This quiche could serve as a quick portable breakfast or even a light lunch/dinner alongside a green salad! Not a dense quiche, the lighter texture might be appreciated in the days after the big feast ;)
Crustless Turkey and Spinach Quiche
adapted from Cooking Light via Culinary in the Desert
~1T extra virgin olive oil
1/2c chopped onion
1c cooked/leftover turkey
~3oz cheddar cheese, divided
1-2c spinach, chopped
2 egg whites
1c cottage cheese
1/2c milk (whatever you have on hand)
1/2c white whole wheat flour (or AP flour)
1t baking powder
few grinds of black pepper
Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook until tender and just about browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350deg.
Spray a pie plate with nonstick spray. Grate ~1oz cheese over the bottom of the pie plate. Scatter over turkey, then follow with the cooked onions, spinach and remaining ~2oz cheese (grated). Whisk together remaining ingredients (eggs through pepper) and pour over turkey/spinach/cheese layers. Bake in preheated oven for 40-50min, until a knife inserted into the center comes clean.
Cool on a wire rack, then cut and serve!
