Cornflake Quiche

 Mmm, who doesn't love quiche? Unfortunately with the pastry crust, we can't afford to love it too much but by eliminating that it can be quite a healthy dinner or even breakfast dish. The one key ingredient to give it that "quichey" taste is a flavorful Swiss cheese.

Place cornflakes in a bag and crush with hands.

Lightly grease and 8x8 pan. Sprinkle about 2/3 of crushed cornflake evenly in pan.  

Chop up broccoli and onion. Mushrooms and pepper would also be great in this dish. I also had some dill lying around so I added that.

Lay chopped vegetables on top of cornflakes. Add preferred precooked meat.

In a bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, flour, milk, dry mustard, salt and pepper.

 Pour mixture over vegetables/cornflakes/meat.

Sprinkle cheese and remaining cornflakes on top.

Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes or until center is cooked.
