Crustless Corn and Bacon Pie

Something special happens when corn, cheese, and bacon come together – especially when it happens and is still only 3 points plus. It’s a happy world when I can eat these three things and still not be scared to put on a bathing suit. This recipe is inspired by a classic Southern Corn and Bacon Pie, but to save calories I eliminated the crust and use skim milk instead of half and half. It still tastes rich and decadent with the bacon and the cheese and no one will ever believe it’s healthy. Serve up with a little salad and it makes a perfect meal. If you decide to add a crust, I would recommend one with cornmeal – that would be delicious. Like a little spice? Replace the red pepper with a poblano.

  6. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet and cook for about 15 minutes on medium-low until the egg is almost set completely.

    If I buy a bag of corn, how much do I need for this recipe? Can’t wait to try this!

      I think about 1.5 cups would be the equivalent of two ears of fresh corn. Hope you like it!

    Regular bacon or turkey bacon? Sounds to good to be true! Can’t wait to try this. Thanks for all your great recipes!

    I am intolerant to egg yolk. Do you have any idea how much Egg Beater I would use to substitute for both the two eggs and the three egg whites? Thank you! The recipe looks great!

      1/4 cup of egg beaters is equivalent to one large egg.

    Do you think Almond milk could be substituted for skim milk? It would be the unsweetened kind.

      I have personally never tried it but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. Let me know how it comes out.

    Wow I made this tonight and it was fantastic. I love quiche and I didn’t even miss the crust (well only a little bit!).

    I swapped the cheese for feta but the nutritional info looked the same so I don’t think it will affect the points value. I also removed the chives and Worcestershire sauce as I personally don’t care for them. I also baked it like a quiche cause I didn’t have a skillet. With all these changes, I still loved it.

    Thanks so much for sharing this.
