Taco Boat Quiches

Taco Boat Quiches for Bariatric Patients (620x930)

If you’ve had bariatric surgery of any kind, you’ll know it can be a challenge to eat meals that include the right mix of ingredients before you’re feeling too full to fit any more in. Enter this great, easy-to-make recipe for taco boat quiches that can be eaten hot or cold (so perfect for dinner or a lunchbox meal at work). If you’re cooking this recipe for one, keep in mind that there’s enough here for 12. They can be frozen for later but definitely taste best fresh.

💡 Each Taco boat contains 10g of protein. This recipe is great for post-operative protein adequacy.
