Ingredients

  • 10 slices Lunch meat* Any variety
  • 8 Eggs
  • 1 cup Cottage cheese
  • 2-3 cups Fresh Spinach
  • 1/2 cup Onion thinly sliced
  • 1 cup Red Bell Pepper thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp Smoked paprika
  • 2 cloves Garlic minced
  • Shredded Cheese Optional

Instructions

Preparation

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Saute onions and bell peppers in butter until golden/caramelized. Remove from heat and allow to cool. 
  • Take a 9" glass pie pan (or similar oven-safe dish) and line it with lunch meat, overlap the edges to make sure that no glass is exposed. Bring the meat up to the edges to the top. 
  • In a large bowl, mix eggs, cottage cheese, salt, pepper, paprika, and minced garlic. 
  • Fold in salad greens, onion, and red bell pepper. 
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pie pan. 

Bake

  • Bake for 35-40 minutes at 375°F or until the egg is cooked through. You can use a toothpick or wooden skewer to check. Insert it into the middle of the quiche and if it comes out clean it means the egg is cooked through. 
  • Enjoy! (Optional: you can top with shredded cheese!)

Notes

*Lunch meat slices can vary greatly in size. I used meat that was about 4" in diameter. If your slices are much larger you can use fewer slices! 
You can add optional shredded cheese at the end.
