Crustless quiche

Pastry, mmmm….DEELISH. But, not conducive to staying in the same size trousers if you eat it often. So what we need sometimes is a gorgeous crustless quiche, all the flavour, less of the trouser-shopping. And here it is.

Mix and match with the suggested ingredient variations. Serve with salad, and I have mine with baked beans too cos I’m weird like that. Shhluurrp.

P.S. This is brilliant for using up surplus eggs if you keep chickens, sometimes I have a kitchen full of eggs in summer when they’re laying at full-pelt, so I make a few of these and freeze them. You can make individual ones using muffin tins too.

Eggs

Eggs are little packages of nutrition. They provide vitamin A, vitamin D, all the B vitamins, folic acid, and are a rich source of selenium (for thyroid function) and iodine as well as many other minerals. They are an excellent source of choline which helps our cells and nerves to signal, as well as with healthy construction of the cell walls.
