Step 3: In a medium size mixing bowl beat egg, egg whites and milk together using an electric beater. Add flour and pepper and beat until well blended.

Step 4: Pour egg mix into a quiche or pie plate that has been coated with cooking spray.

Step 5: Spoon mince mixture over top, then level.

DIETITIAN’S TIP: Reduced-fat cheese contains the same nutrients as full-fat cheese, including calcium, zinc, vitamin A and D, but it is lower in total and saturated fat. Low-fat dairy products are always a great alternative to full-fat.
