One of my favorite go-to recipes to make, freeze and use when needed is a Turkey spinach crustless quiche.  It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s delicious!! One thing I also like about this recipe is it can be scaled up for multiple people or paired down for the solo eaters, like me 🙂  You can really use any veggies you like, but I like spinach and onions (sometimes I throw mushrooms in there also)!

Tips: I like to cook this on parchment paper.  I find it’s easier to cut and portion out.  *Let it cool before cutting though!* Either enjoy right away or freeze to use at a later date – regardless it’s a tasty one for your meal prep bag!
