Crustless Quiche!

I posted a picture of my food yesterday on my more under the radar IG account where I mostly post food and my workouts and someone asked for the recipe! This is a mix of of a couple of recipes but it’s more or less the same prep. Here’s the link for reference. Now the ingredients that I used!

Ingredients:

5 eggs
3 cups of shredded cheese (I KNOW)
6 strips of bacon
1.5 cups of chopped broccoli
1 package of spinach
1 small yellow onion
1 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp low sodium salt
1/4-1/3 cup of 2% milk

1. I put the bacon in the pan and let them cook until they were nice and crispy then put them aside. I left some of the bacon fat in because I’m a horrible person and just wanted to try it. (A woman at a bbq told me she used it for making gravy and for whatever reason that inspired me to do this? LOL)

2. While the bacon was cooking, I cut up the onion TINY cuz I hate chunks of big onion cuz that’s gross. I put the bacon fat on low heat because I like to take the time to cut up my veggies and still have something cooking while I’m doing it so it’s not just PREP PREP PREP then nothing’s going at the same time cuz it takes FOREVER… to me anyway lol!

3. I chopped the spinach because Ali hates “wet leaves” or things that feels like they’re slimy crawling down his throat. He came into the kitchen and chopped them finer because it wasn’t TINY ENOUGH APPARENTLY LOL. After that, I chopped the broccoli into little tiny pieces as well and tossed them all in the pan to let the spinach wilt down a little and soften the broccoli and cooked until most of the water was evaporated.

4. While all of that was going on, I mixed the cheese (I used a low sodium cheese but use whatever) eggs, salt, pepper, and milk into a bowl. The recipe I linked you to didn’t use bacon, broccoli or milk but I like it so yolo.

5. Once all of that was done, I added the bacon fat friends into the bowl and stirred around until everything was coated with the eggs to make sure nothing chunky was sticking out… mostly cuz I wanted it to look cute. Then I poured it into a dish.

6. The recipe said it should be done in 30 minutes but my dish was pretty small and a bit deeper than a normal pie pan so it took about 45 minutes for it to be golden on the top and not runny on the inside.

When it was all done this is what my nummy slice looked like:

YOHHHZZZ!! If you decide to try this GO FOR IT!!! This was my first time trying to make something like this and I’m happy to say it was pretty yummy! I’m going to find ways to make it taste better and not use as much cheese next time cuz for the most it’s pretty healthy… minus the bacon fat and 8390248023lbs of cheese lol. Enjoy!!

“Paleo” Nachos

I put quotes around Paleo because the way we have it isn’t exactly 100% paleo. I’m no paleo expert but I did find this on a paleo website? (Say “crack” again….CRACK) LOL here’s how we make it:

Should be 3-4 servings

Ingredients
2 large sweet potatoes (or 3)
Package of lean ground turkey
Half of an onion (finely chopped)
Garlic (2 cloves)
Green onion chopped (1 sprig but if you like more then go for it. Ali doesn’t like too much so I just use one.)
Cilantro (garnish/to chop for the meat)
Tomato paste (1 tbs)
Worcestershire sauce (5 dashes)
Medium cheddar cheese (whatever cheese)
1 avocado
Tomato (chopped and seeded)
Cumin (dash)
Cayenne (half of a teaspoon)
Low sodium salt
Black pepper
One lime
Chili pepper flakes (if you like em)

We use coconut oil for the meat and this spray thang to put the sweet potatoes on in the oven. If you don’t have coconut oil then use olive oil or whatever oil you like, yolo.

Cooking dat shii
1. Slice the potatoes about 1/4 of an inch thick (unless you like them thinner to be more like chips then go for it!)
2. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes (375 F) flipping halfway through. You’ll need at least 2 baking trays LOL. Don’t worry about overlapping some of them since they shrink when cooked anyway.

3. While the potatoes are baking, chop the garlic and onions finely then sauté them for about 3 minutes.
4. Put the meat in and break it apart (obvi) and let that cook on medium heat.
5. While the meat is cooking chop up cilantro, tomato and green onion. Chop the cilantro finely and add to meat. Keep the green onion for serving
6. Add seasoning (little by little and to taste) and the tomato paste. Mix around blah blah you know how to cook. Cumin is hella strong so be sure to add that little by little.
7. Squeeze one half of the lime

8. Mash the avocado then add the other half of the lime, some salt and pepper.

Once everything is done, I like to layer everything starting with the meat. Then the potatoes, meat, cheese and some green onion. Then repeat! Save the avocado and the rest of the cilantro for the top.

Here are pictures that I posted on my Instagram. I add black beans sometimes and jalapenos most times if I don’t forget. We don’t use sour cream anymore but bought greek yogurt instead. This recipe is very yummy and filling and I LOVE IT. Obviously make it however you would want it. I tend to like things hella spicy so I like to make ours extra spicy… Ali sometimes needs a glass of milk LOL oops!! ENJOY Y’ALL!!
