1 box frozen Egg Beaters (found in frozen section)
1 deep crust pie shell
1 c. shredded cheese
1/4 c. milk
Dash of dry mustard

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place cookie sheet in oven to heat the bottom of pan, therefore it will cook the bottom of pie crust when quiche is baking.

You can make any quiche with egg beaters or even egg whites. A 1/4 cup of egg beaters is = to one egg. I'm not sure about the egg whites you'd have to look at the carton. Then just use a favorite recipe.

I thought egg beaters were egg whites.

For the person with the cheese quiche recipe - still sound like lots of cholesterol and saturated fat. Make a veggie frittata (egg pie without the crust), add a little flour and a pinch of baking soda and just a little bit of parmesan on the top and that will lower the cholesterol and saturated fats overall. Jazz it up with crumbles made by the Boca Burger people (forget what they're called) and some basil and oregano.

I dont' think egg beaters are egg whiltes. They come out of the carton like scrambled eggs...kinda orangey-yellowy and slimey. My only gripe about the egg beaters is that they stick to the pan so bad, you lose half your eggs. We use a lot of the Pam - no fat, no cholesterol - but can't seem to get beyond the stick.

Just for those who want to know, from, "Egg Beaters taste like real eggs because they are real eggs — but only the best part — the whites."

About the recipe, I agree. If your father has heart disease he unfortunately has many things to look out for besides eggs.

Found this one on the link below:
Roasted Vegetable and Ham Quiche
Popular for brunches and casual dining, quiche is often described as “lighter” fare. Made the traditional way with whole eggs, cream, bacon, lots of cheese, and pie pastry, it’s actually high in fat, and offers very little dietary fibre. By making a few simple changes to a traditional Quiche Lorraine recipe, a great tasting Roasted Vegetable and Ham Quiche is created. It has all the rich taste and sumptuous texture that has made quiche a favourite, yet it can be part of a heart healthy way of eating.

Of the ones I googled, the one on the link seemed the best.

Opps! Meant to edit out the confusing intro to another recipe I was going to put up until I decided I couldn't get behind it. Sorry! (ignore bit from "Roasted Vegetable..." to " heart healthy way of eating...")
