Turkey Bacon Quiche

6 strips lean turkey bacon
3 (8-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
3 whole eggs
8 egg whites
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/2 cup low-fat sour cream
3/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup broccoli florets, fresh or frozen, thawed

Preheat oven to 350.

Cook turkey bacon according to its package directions. Set aside to cool.

Lightly coast a 9-inch pie plate with cooking spray. Overlap 2 tortillas and cut the third one in half to form a crust.

In a large mixing bowl, beat whole eggs and egg whites with a fork or whisk until well blended. Then mix milk and sour cream into the eggs.

Chopped cooled turkey bacon into bite-size pieces.

Add turkey bacon, cheddar cheese and broccoli to blended egg mixture; combine throughly.

Pour egg mixture into tortilla-lined pie plate. Bake for approximately 50 minutes. (You’ll know its done when you tap the edge of the pie plate and the filling is set and moist. If it is still liquid, bake for a few more minutes longer and test again).

Allow to cool for 10 minutes before slicing.
