I love this recipe and finally tweaked it exactly how I like it. I'm not a big fan of spices so I'm a salt/pepper/garlic girl -- feel free to add spices you like though!

2-3 Medium Zucchini, grated and well drained
1/2 Pound Jennie-O Breakfast Turkey Sausage
1 Medium Onion, chopped fine
4 Slices Turkey Bacon, cooked & crumbled
5 Eggs
12oz Shredded Cheese (I used Trader Joe's Lite 3Cheese Blend)
1/2 Cup Trader Joe's Greek Yogurt 2% (Fage 2% works too)
1 Tbsp Low Carb Baking Mix (Bob's Red Mill)
1 Tbsp Butter

Preheat oven to 375

Sausage Crust:
- Brown sausage and drain any liquid
- Mix in 1 egg and 1/4 cup of the cheese and mix well
- Spread mixture into bottom of quiche dish
- Bake at 375 for 10 minutes to set

Zucchini Filling:
- In a skillet, cook bacon until crisp and remove
- In same skillet add butter and sautee onions until browned
- Add shredded zucchini and cook a short time until soft
- On low heat, add in the cheese and bacon and blend well
- Add Salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl combine:
4 Eggs, 1/2 Cup Greek Yogurt, Baking Mix l

- Pour into zucchini mixture and stir
- Remove "crust" from oven and pour in filling
- Sprinkle with any remaining cheese
- Cook for 30 minutes at 375 degrees

This makes 12 perfect 4oz portions:
