Meal Prep Sundays: Mini Spinach & Caramelized Onion Quiche
Catherine is our Marketing Coordinator here in the 6 Pack Fitness SF Offices! Catherine has an academic background in Kinesiology Exercise Science and she's pretty bad ass. She came to the team with a passion for cooking and baking, so we asked her to put something together to share!
My mom recently decided to get back into eating healthy (a decision I completely support). Following the lead of many friends and family who used Weight Watchers to change their eating patterns, she decided to make the big commitment and join. I was over at her house a few weekends ago while she was meal prepping for the week, and I was introduced to the breakfast zucchini quiche.
This last weekend I decided to adapt the Weight Watchers recipe and make some changes to hit the flavors I enjoy, caramelized onions and spinach! Simply add Turkey Bacon and you have a wonderful protein filled breakfast!

Add the spinach and combine it with the caramelized onions for about 1 minute.
Combine all the ingredients in one large bowl.

Bake until the mini quiches are golden brown and cooked through, about 15 minutes.

Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
These make a great snack, too! Enjoy!
