I’m starting a new series here on Detours in Life called “Low Carb Monday”. Each Monday, I will have a recipe for you that is low carb and yummy! The type of diet that I eat with my bariatric surgery requires me to be low carb and these dishes tend to be extremely satisfying. This week, I created a Quiche to satisfy my craving for a Philly Cheesesteak. The Philly Cheesesteak Crustless Quiche certainly hit the spot! It is a great dinner option but also tasted good as left overs the next morning for breakfast.
I started out by bringing my beef broth and onion soup mix to a boil in a saucepan. I then added in the roast beef and let that cook for 5 minutes.
While this is cooking, I cut up my onion and green peppers and placed them in a frying pan with a little olive oil. I cooked them for about 5 minutes. I didn’t want them too soft.
Remove the roast beef from the broth mixture and layer it in the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
Next, layer your provolone cheese on top of the roast beef.
Mix the eggs, milk, salt/pepper, and the onion/pepper mixture. Pour over top of the roast beef and provolone cheese.
Bake in the oven at 400˚ for 25 minutes, or until eggs are set in the middle. Remove from the oven and let rest for a few minutes. Slice and enjoy!
