This Spinach and Feta Quiche is simple to make and perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Another perk, this is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe!
Over the years I’ve shared several quiche recipes and that’s because I LOVE quiche. When anyone tells me about a place with great quiche — I’m there or adding it to my list of places to visit.
My favorite quiches have crust, but the crust adds quite a bit of fat (especially if you’re on a diet or changing your eating habits). Womp womp womp!
So, I like to cheat a bit on Fridays after I weigh-in — a celebration of loss or gain. So, I’ve enjoyed some great quiches since moving back to the Springfield-Rogersville area, particularly on Fridays. HA!
Quiches are something my mom made when we were kids. I think they all had crust, which is probably why I love that part the most. This hamburger quiche goes waaaaay back and kind of makes me sentimental, it’s also a favorite of mine.
I’ve learned to love many different quiches as I’ve gotten older. This is one I got from a Weight Watchers leaders and I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about feta cheese in a quiche. It just sounded a bit wonky. However, it proved me wrong as it was quite tasty.
Coming in at only 3 smart points (on the Freestyle program) — you could enjoy a couple of slices if you want! Enjoy.
