Sunrise Quiche

By Lynda Wheatley | Jan. 5, 2019

We almost wrote about a sugarless, cheese-less, nutrient-packed dish this week — this is our annual Clean Living & Health issue, after all — but then we remembered that a critical part of sticking to a healthy diet and losing weight is throwing your metabolism for a spin one meal a week. Well, a hungry metabolism can do no better than this: the Sunrise Quiche at Warehouse KiTChen + Cork in Traverse City’s Hotel Indigo. Less a quiche and more a fresh spinach, egg, caramelized onion, and swiss nugget nestled inside a (surprise!) square of puff pastry, the Sunrise is topped with perhaps the best, most balanced sweet and savory bacon jam and to ever grace your palate, plus a lux mornay sauce. Fresh greens with a subtly tart side of lemon vinegarette and a few berries offer a punchy complement to the rich dish. It’s worth getting up early for and an ideal reward to a week of working out. Treat yo’self at: 263 W. Grandview Pkwy. (231) 932-0500
