Spinach, Onion and Feta Cheese crustless "quiche"

As crazy as it may sound to some, Teen loves quiche!   Seriously!  Every Wednesday evening she go to dinner at a local wing eatery that hosts "Kid's Karaoke" with a good friend.  As I plan the week's menu, I typically choose a meal she's not as crazy about for Wednesday nights.  Sunday she stopped me in my planning as I had wrote quiche for Wednesday's meal.  "NOOOOO, you can't have quiche without me!" she exclaimed.  Thus, it is Tuesday evening and we had quiche - just for her!
This quiche was delicious!  I used the feta cheese sparingly (much to Big Guy's demise) as it is not friendly to my weight loss plan.  But very filling and tasty!

Spinach, Onion and Feta Quiche (adapted from

1 medium onion chopped
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
8 oz Fresh Spinach, cut into bite size pieces
2 teaspoons oregano
2 teaspoons parsley
1 teaspoon garlic salt
4 eggs (or egg substitute)
1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup skim milk
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
pepper to taste

1 - Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat.  Add diced onion, cooking for about 5 minutes until translucent.
2 - Add spinach and saute with onions till spinach is a bit wilted.  Take off heat.
3 - Scramble 4 eggs. (aren't these beautiful eggs?  We are fortunate to get fresh eggs from a local farmer - YUM!)
5 - Add flour, milk, spices.

6 - Mix together.  Add spinach and onion mixture.
7 - Pour into pie dish.  Top with feta cheese crumbles.

8 - Bake at 400 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes.  Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
Serve with a steamed vegetable (carrots are great!) and a salad.  Enjoy!
