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

Ingredients

pie crust

6 oz, 9-inch, refrigerated

olive oil

2 tsp

uncooked red onion(s)

½ cup(s), sliced, chopped

part-skim ricotta cheese

1¼ cup(s)

WeightWatchers Reduced Fat Mexican style blend shredded cheese

1 cup(s)

egg(s)

1 large

2 large

Dijon mustard

1 Tbsp

1 tsp

table salt

½ tsp, or more to taste

black pepper

¼ tsp, freshly ground, or more to taste

frozen chopped broccoli

10 oz, thawed and well-drained

grated Parmesan cheese

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
