Saturday Morning

I just finished making this crustless quiche. It should be cooled by now. And I am quite ready to eat it. I don't have a "real" recipe for you, because I just threw it together.

Here's a list of ingredients and a rough estimate of the amounts that you can work from. For a more exact recipe, check out Jen's recipe here. And even if you don't try her recipe, check out her post for the fun read.

Crustless Quiche
6 eggs
1 T garlic powder
1 T dried basil leaves
pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
2 tsps. lemon pepper
1/3 cup vanilla rice milk
1/3 cup shredded asiago cheese
1/3 cup cheddar cheese (chopped)
1 tsp. nutmeg

In a medium bowl, very briskly whisk the eggs until well mixed. Whisk in rice milk. Stir in the remaining ingredients as you wish. Oil the pie pan and pour in the mixture. Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes. I sprinkle a bit of paprika on top for the last 10 minutes of baking, just to add some color.

The quiche will nicely puff up as it bakes, then it will fall a bit as it cools. If you're a food blogger, take some pictures. Write a blog post. Publish. Then eat! Happy weekend everyone!

Your crustless quiche looks wonderful, Anali! I like the inclusion of lemon pepper. Plus, you seem to like adding nutmeg to your recipes--which I also appreciate. :-)

*sigh* it's stuff like this that makes me wish I liked eggs. That looks absolutely delicious!

alas, I get one wiff of eggs and I start gagging.

ah well...

Hey Anali, How are you Sista?

It's been a minute-

I'm right on time it seems. I'm really getting into quiche in recent months. And now you're bringing a crustless version - Oh, yeah!

I think that book in the 80's "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" kinda screwed me up. Then last year, I realized my manhood wasn't directly related to my eating - so I dug in and loved it, loved it, loved it.

On point as always! Take care!

Discovered your blog today from Grey Street Girl. Lovely blog!

I am vegetarian and always looks for meatless recipes to try with my daughter. Thanks for sharing.

shirley - It's so good and so much easier than dealing with a crust. Less calories too. I put lemon pepper on just about everything. Love the stuff! If Trader Joe's gave me a dream gift bag, that would be included. And I do love nutmeg!

brandi - Overall I love eggs, but sometimes they do smell a little foul. Or should I say fowl? ; )

ttbm - You're back!!! Great to see you here again. I thought you had quit the blogosphere.

I never understood that whole "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" thing. Very odd. Whoever started that sure was good at marketing. They brainwashed a generation of men against a food! I'm glad that you looked past it and can enjoy it now, because it is so good! : )

se'lah - Thank you so much for stopping by! I love GSG's blog. I eat poultry and fish, but no other meats, so I have a few vegan and many veggie friendly recipes.

Shirly @ GFE is helping me to learn more about gluten free food too. And I have many dairy free recipes too.

Oh. Yum. This looks wonderful! And who needs the crust?

Anali said...

willow - Thanks! I agree. No crust needed. I'd rather save the calories and eat cupcakes instead. : )

so happy to discover your blog!

Anali said...

absolutely not martha - Welcome! I'm glad you did too. ; )

Kalyn said...

Going to try making a crustless quiche myself soon, sounds good!

Anali said...

kalyn - It's quicker and easier, but just as tasty! ; )
