This is one of the few recipes I will post that takes longer than 20-30 minutes to prepare and get I to the table! I’m a big believer in healthy eating made simple. That being said, once in a while I will create something that takes a but longer and passes my ‘is it really worth it’ taste test from friends and family!
This recipe passed! It is healthy, gluten free, grain free, high protein, and absolutely delicious.
2 whole eggs
1 cup almond meal
1/4 cup water
4 whole eggs
7 egg whites
1 cup chopped raw spinach
1 tablespoon raw chopped dill
1/4 teaspoon salt (preferably Himalayan)
Small handful of sub dried organic tomatoes (cut into slices)
1/3 teaspoon garlic powder
4 strips organic turkey bacon
1/4 small red onion
A dash of black pepper
A dash if basil
A dash of oregano
1/3 cup Daiya shredded mozzerella cheese
1/2 cup shredded cheese
Cook turkey bacon on medium high heat in a frying pan for about 3 minutes on each side or until well done or slightly browned on each side. Remove from heat and place strips on a plate to cool. Once the turkey bacon cools, tear each piece into tiny pieces.
Chop onions into small pieces. Use the greasy frying pan to sauté the chopped onions.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix until smooth batter. Grease circular baking pan and then scoop the batter in. Using your fingers press batter evenly to putter edges filling the whole pan. Pat until flat. Then using your two fingers (pointer and index) press the batter up the sides until you have created a shell or pie crust shape. Bake for 12-20 minutes or until you can poke a tooth pick or fork into pie crust without goopy batter on it when you pull it back out of the crust. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15-30 minutes.
Mix eggs, veggies, cheese, turkey bacon and seasoning into a bowl and beat or mix. Pour mixture directly into pie crust (leave pie crust in same baking pan).
Place on oven rack and bake at 400 for 40-50 minutes. Cool 15 minutes. Serve hot or place in refrigerator and serve cold!
