The Crustless Quiche

Eggs are full of protein, good fats and above all, they are still one of the few affordable foods.  Being aware of ‘bad’ carbohydrates these days, I decided to make one of my favorite dishes without the flakey, buttery crust.  For this recipe, anything and everything except the eggs and liquid can be substituted with whatever you have in your frig.  For instance, it’s pretty tasty with pizza stuff like pepperoni and chopped tomatoes, basil and mozzarella.  Other combinations might be hashbrowns, turkey sausage and cheddar.  You could even omit the pepper and add sugar and fruit for a dessert custard.

2 eggs

2/3 cup of milk, evaporated milk or milk substitute

salt and pepper to taste.

2 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled

½ cup frozen spinach, squeezed dry

1 cup mushrooms, sliced

2 T chopped bell pepper

2 oz +/- cheese (swiss would be great here but I had some Havarti that needed to be used)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Oil a small (2 cup) ramekin, casserole or other oven proof dish and set aside.

Saute vegetables in bacon fat.

Put everything, bacon and veggies on the bottom of the dish, evenly distributed.

Top with the cheese.

Beat the eggs with the liquid and add salt and pepper.  Pour over the veggies and cheese.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the custard is set.  You can eat it hot, cold or room temperature.

You can enjoy this hot, cold or room temperature.  Serves 2 with a salad.

    I MADE THE QUICHE OUT OF WHATEVER I HAD FROZEN FROM LEFTOVERS OR EXTRA QTY. OF BULK VEG. EVEN THREW IN SOME FROZEN CANADIAN BACON, OLIVES & JAR CAULIFLOWER SALAD, PICKLED CORN YOU GAVE ME, A CAN OF STEWED TOMATOES FOR COLOR, USED SPRAYED BUTTER (OUT OF TUB BUTTER), PARMESIAN CHEESE (NOT(FRESH), USED POWDERED COFFEEMATE INSTEAD OF MILK, SPRINKLED RED PEPPER FROM JAR, BACON BITS FROM JAR & TOPPED WITH PACKAGED JALAPANEA CEESE BITES ON TOP BEFORE BAKING. IT CAME OUT PRETTY GOOD FOR A FROZEN LEFTOVER EXPERMINT. I LIKE IT BEST COLD. PUT SOME IN MY SALAD LAST NIGHT. YUM. COME ON GIRLS, GUYS, KIDS WHOEVER, TRY THE RECIPE AS WRITTEN, OR LIVE A LITTLE & MAKE IT A “FREE FOR ALL QUICHE” LIKE I DID. YOU CAN’T GO WRONG, I AM MAKING IT AGAIN. BUT, NOT SO MANY ITEMS THIS TIME. I HAD LEFTOVERS FROM MY LEFTOVERS.
    THANKS FOR SHARING THIS RECIPE PAM, NICE TO HAVE SOMETHING DIFFERENT & EASY TOO, IN WHICH TO CLEAN OUT MY FREEZER. I CALL IT “GARBAGE” QUICHE.
