When I used to eat grains, my favorite part of the quiche sometimes was the crust itself. Who would’ve ever thought that I’d come up with a quiche recipe that was crustless? I swear by it though! This makes an amazing, healthy and clean paleo breakfast or you can switch things up and try it as a lunch or dinner. I like to make a nice big, hearty quiche on Sunday nights and enjoy the leftovers into the coming week for breakfast and lunch. What a treat!

- The quiche is done when you feel light firmness and a “spring back” feel in the middle.
- Let cool slightly.
When eggs are used in any recipe and not specified in terms of size, always use large and NEVER use jumbo. The jumbo eggs can turn your muffins into wet mush, your cookies goop, and on and on. Always use room-temperature eggs.
This recipe is excellent the next day heated and served with any type of salsa or sliced avocado. Yum!
