clean eating: ham & green onion quiche

because i'm going to be beach bound to jamaica in about a week, i was trying to find some clean recipes to eat until then and when i ran across this recipe, i knew it was something i would like.  i have always liked quiches and this one looked pretty simple and healthy.  i ate this for both supper and breakfast because it fits both meals and was extra tasty.  i have to say that the 'crust' is something i will have to get used to though since it's not a traditional quiche crust, but all-in-all i really liked it. 

2 slices whole-grain bread, roughly chopped
1 large egg plus 5 egg whites 
1 1/2 cups 2% milk
3/4 cup ham chunks
2 slices swiss cheese, cut into cubes 
1 bunch green onion, sliced
1/2 cup mushrooms 
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 tsp dried sage

preheat oven to 375. chop bread in a food processor and press firmly into bottom of a greased 9" pie plate.  bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.  meanwhile, whisk eggs and milk in a bowl and then mix in all other ingredients until well combined.  

pour mixture over crust and bake for one hour and five minutes or until top is puffed up and a knife inserted into middle comes out clean.  remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before cutting into slices.

I started doing my quiches without crusts... I guess that makes them fritatas? Not sure - but it cuts the bread, which I try not to eat anyway. Do the same thing, just be sure to use something like PAM or coconut oil to grease the pan... Love it. I will have to try this one! Thanks for sharing!
