Egg White Quiche Recipe

Anyone who bakes knows that you can end up with a lot of leftover egg whites. I can understand fully the urge to pitch the whites, but if you can refrain from doing that and instead keep the suckers, there are a wonderfully yummy foods that you can make with them. For instance, an egg white quiche!

The truth is, although I was born in 1985, I might very well be a depression era woman trapped in a modern body--I feel like I have to use every little bit of everything. Let's just say we're lucky I don't bury my money in a jar in the backyard. Anyway, I think you will be impressed with how this lovely little quiche turns out and just how easy it is to use up those whites you've saved!

Jiffy crust--it's like a secret weapon. I always have a box or two on hand for precisely the moment I need it. I have heard friends of mine admit that they only buy the pre made crusts, and that is totally fine. I just like this because it's cheaper than pre made, and easier than homemade. 

But it sort of looks homemade, right? 

1/2 onion, diced I used red onion because it was what I had, but you can use any old onion you've got laying around. 

Take your whites, your onion, a cup of shredded cheese, and 5 or so slices of lunchmeat and mix it in a mixing bowl 

Pour it in your shell, and then pop that puppy in the oven! 

You don't have to be in a city to enjoy brunch! Look how yummy that looks.... 
And can I just say that I feel like the colors of the onion and meat are shown in all their glory against the white of the egg? Hehe. 

Time: 1 1/2 hours, start to finish | Serves 6 | Difficulty Level: Easy 

You will need: 

1 package of Jiffy Crust (or a pre made pie shell) 
8 egg whites
1/2 red onion, diced 
1 cup shredded cheese 
5 or so slices of lunchmeat (I used ham) 


Prepare your package of Jiffy Crust according to directions. Generally, it will tell you to bake it in the oven for 10 minutes on 450 degrees. If for some reason the box doesn't have those direction, do it any way. 

Reduce your oven heat to 375 degrees. 

Combine the egg whites, onion, cheese, and meat in a bowl and beat 'em until combined. 

Pour them into your prepared pie shell. 

Make in the oven for 45- 60 minutes or until firm. Slice and serve.
