Yummy Weight Watchers Quiche

This is REALLY good, we made it the other night and I added a little ham to make it a little more hearty!

main meals | Who says real men don't eat quiche? It's really just an omelet in a pie crust. Make it for the whole family.


  • 6 oz pie crust, 9-inch, refrigerated
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) red onion(s), chopped
  • 1 1/4 cup(s) part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup(s) low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 large egg(s)
  • 2 large egg white(s)
  • 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp table salt, or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground, or more to taste
  • 10 oz frozen chopped broccoli, thawed and well-drained
  • 1 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Press pie crust into bottom and up sides of a 9-inch, removable-bottom tart pan or a 9-inch pie pan; refrigerate until ready to use.

  • To make filling, heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until soft, about 3 minutes. Transfer onion to a large bowl and add ricotta cheese, cheddar cheese, egg, egg whites, mustard, oregano, salt and pepper; mix well and fold in broccoli. Spoon mixture into prepared crust and level surface with a wooden spoon; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

  • Bake until a knife inserted near center comes out clean, about 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving.


Not a broccoli fan? Substitute spinach in its place.
