Cheese & Spinach Crustless Quiche

Oh my, this is a fantastic dish! I found the recipe this morning and prepared it for lunch today and this quiche is both attractive and tasty! It's also low in carbs since it has no crust and no high carb ingredients.

I changed the recipe just a tad, using fewer eggs because I used less spinach, and I added garlic, chicken bouillon, crushed red pepper and about a Tablespoon of half and half. I also used a combination of mozzarella, sharp cheddar, and asiago cheeses. Next time I prepare it I'll add some cooked turkey bacon or turkey ham and see how that tastes.

Leftovers are definitely going in my lunch box today!

Laurie, if you try this, please come back and post your thoughts on it. I really enjoyed eating it and even leftover it was good. :)

I will come back and let you know, because as I've said before I have a house full of carnivorous, high carb eaters. LOL!

Well, since it was just hubby and I...I halfed the recipe and we had it tonight.

It was really good! I did add a little bit of cream cheese. I had some that needed to be used up, so I plopped it in. It was definitely a repeat dinner here!

I love when I'm able to cut my family's carb intake and they don't even mind or notice!

I also liked the fact that it was incredibly easy and fast to prepare. Not messing with a crust saved me a lot of time.

Thanks for posting this recipe!

I'm so glad y'all liked it! Cream cheese sounds like an excellent addition, Laurie. I'll try that next time with the turkey ham or turkey bacon. Mmmm! Its good to know that even carnivores (I'm one too) like it. ;) And yep, its very easy & fast. It will be one of my go-to dishes when time is short.
