Perfect for a weekend breakfast, Crustless Spinach Quiche is bursting with Mediterranean flavors and two kinds of cheese!
For years, I had a real aversion to eating eggs. Scrambled, fried, boiled—there was just something about the texture that I couldn’t handle. That is, until I got brave enough to try quiche for the first time. One bite of creamy, cheesy, eggs in pie form won me over and I’ve been a quiche fan ever since. One nice thing about this Crustless Spinach Quiche is you save a few carbs by leaving off the pie dough — and it’s gluten-free. This dish is so tasty, though, I don’t think you’ll miss the crust!
Sauté fresh spinach with garlic and onions to meld the flavors before adding to a mixture of beaten eggs, sour cream, and a little milk. To this add Feta cheese — or substitute your favorite cheese — and then pour into a pie plate. I like topping it off with shaved Parmesan cheese and a sprinkle of smoked paprika before baking to get a nice golden color.
