Basic Crustless Quiche

This can be made almost any way. It is so easy, and I always get raves. It's also great for those days when you don't know what to make. Use any combinations of veggies that please you. This one my kids will eat, especially if I add ham. My favorite for adults? Asparagus with mozzarella and goat cheese. Yum.

Update: If you don't feel like sauteing your veggies on the stove, put them in a microwaveable dish with butter, cook in high for 2 min, then follow the recipe. Easy. :)

2 tablespoon olive oil
2 shallots, chopped
4 shitake mushrooms chopped
1/2 cup fresh broccoli, small pieces
5 eggs
8 oz. package shredded cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350-degrees F.

Spray 9-inch pie plate with Pam. Heat oil in skillet over med. high heat. Add shallot and saute about 3 min; then add mushrooms, saute 3 min. more. Add broccoli; cook it turns bright green. Let cool. Beat eggs in bowl. Add cheese.Combine the egg/cheese mixture with the vegetable mixture. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if desired. Pour into pie pan, spreading top evenly. Bake until top is browned and tester comes out clean, 40-45 minutes.

My little boy loves quiche too. It is one of those cheap, easy meals. I have told a lot of my gluten-eating friends about crustless quiche and they have started making it too. No one wants to bother with a pie crust on a weeknight =)

Your quiche looks delicious!

I know, my parents and parents-in-law went crazy over the crustless quiche.

The only thing we can't impress them with is bread...we can make some that taste good to us...but not great for them, good, but not great.

The quiche looks super yummy!

I really like Bette Hagman's rapid rise french bread- it is the one bread recipe I pull out to impress gluten-eating-folks with... everyone loves it, especially served with basil dipping oil.

By the way, I'm participating in your Gluten Free Menu Swap, but I don't use outlook so I couldn't find a way to email you. My post is here:
