CRUSTLESS QUICHE WITH VEGGIES

A brunch staple, this quiche is made without the crust and loaded with cheese, asparagus, tomatoes, and green onions.




What I love about eggs is their versatility. Baked, hard boiled, poached, fried, scrambled, sunny side up -- possibilities abound. I also love them because they're usually part of my favorite meal of the day. Quiche has been a long standing staple on many a brunch menu. But in recent years as members of my family have transitioned to a gluten-free diet because of allergies, we had to come up with a crustless version. You'll see a lot of recipes for crustless quiche online, all of which seem to have an egg to milk ratio that doesn't quite yield that custard-like consistency. I don't know if they switch it up because of the lack of crust, or they just like a consistency more like frittata. But this recipe gets you closer to the true consistency without falling apart.


Another thing that's great about quiche is that it's a lot like frittata in that you can put pretty much anything in it. Here are some ideas, followed by a few suggested combinations:


Vegetables: Broccoli, spinach, tomatoes, onion, scallions, mushrooms, asparagus, peppers (spinach, tomatoes, and scallions can be added raw; all other veggies should be lightly sauteed)

Herbs: Basil, oregano, parsley,

Cheese: Cheddar, monterey jack, colby, colby jack, parmesan, feta, goat cheese

Meat: Bacon, ham, sausage, salmon

Other: Olives, artichokes, sun dried tomatoes


Possible combinations:

  • Spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms, feta, basil

  • Ham, cheddar, onion

  • Broccoli, cheddar, scallions

This recipe should yield about 6 servings. Enjoy! And if you have any favorite combinations, leave them in the comments!
