Easy to prepare Three Egg Quiche!
So Quiche is pretty amazing food. Full of protein rich eggs, meats, cheese and any vegetable you can think of. It’s such a flexible food and can handle most any goody you want to put it in it.
When is a good time for quiche?
Anytime frankly. Breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and maybe even a late night snack.
I usually make it for dinner and if there are any leftovers, they are usually waiting for me to devour them for breakfast the next morning. I love to eat it cold too!
Several years ago when I was living in Ireland, A friend shared this recipe with me – THANK YOU CATH! – and since then it’s the only way I’ll attempt to make any quiche. Seriously it’s that simple and that delicious.
I tend to stick with the same filling ingredients most every time because I’ve tried it many ways and this just happens to be my all time favorite blend of fillings…Leeks, Feta, Tomatoes!
What’s so great about this recipe?
- It only takes THREE (that’s right 3) Eggs!
- It’s Crustless, therefore lower in carbs!
- You can dress it up with any filling you want!
How great is that?!? You really can’t go wrong with it no matter how hard you may try to, ha. Honestly, as much as I enjoy the variety of quiches on offer, I find many of them to be fairly on the rich side, but with this one – it’s not overly rich or heavy.
Even though it’s crustless, when it bakes it almost forms it’s own “crust” – the flour in the batter separates just enough to settle on the bottom to make an almost crust like bottom. BONUS!
The next time you want to try your hand at making quiche, give this one a go.
It’s very economical and healthy.
In the recipe below I list it with the way I make it most every time. Don’t like the filling ingredients I use or can’t find them where you are? No problem, you can change out any filling you want. Use what’s in season for the tastiest flavors.
One thing I must note, that because it is a CRUSTLESS Quiche, do not use the “springform” or removable type dish to bake it in…it will LEAK. Learned the hard way once 😉 Good Times.
Serve it with a gorgeous salad and you’ve got yummy meal.
