One of my favorite meals to make for breakfast, lunch or dinner is Crustless Veggie Quiche. This is by far one of the most versatile recipes I’ve ever made. When I’m eating extra healthy, I will make this with mostly egg whites and skim milk. If I’m in the mood to add meat to the recipe, I’ll dice up some pepperoni or bacon to add it. I also always cram lots of vegetables in it. I always use peppers and onions and have used other veggies like kale, cauliflower, spinach, broccoli, jalapenos and even zucchini.
When I was eating foods with gluten, I would always make this recipe with Heart Smart Bisquick. Last year when I was 100% gluten free, I would make this Crustless Veggie Quiche, with gluten free baking blends. I have had great success using Pamela’s Baking and Pancake Mix as well as Gluten Free Bisquick in this recipe. (Please note that the recipe below is interchangeable – all you need is 3/4 cups Bisquick or Pamela’s or a different baking mix.) The major difference I have noted for regular Bisquick versus a gluten free baking mix is that the Bisquick quiche rises a bit more and is a bit more fluffy while the gluten free variation is a bit more dense.
This Crustless Veggie Quiche is excellent fresh out of the oven. But it is also amazing reheated the next day. It is filling and well rounded meal as it has lots of protein from the eggs, milk and cheese. And, it has lots of fiber, vitamins and nutrients from the veggies!
In a mixing bowl, mix the wet ingredients (recipe is below)
Saute your vegetables (recipe is below)
