If you are looking to avoid additional carbs or enjoy a  gluten-free dish, this recipe for No Crust Spinach and Mushroom Quiche has it all. 

I enjoy making quiche because it is so versatile, as are the ingredients. After all, quiche is an appropriate dish for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack. 

Say you are ready to try out this recipe, but you only have cheddar cheese. No problem, it substitutes nicely. Same goes for the veggies, and leftovers work out great in this dish. Pair with a tasty soup or salad for a delicious meal.

Have Fun With Variations for This Recipe

I love this recipe just the way it is made, but sometimes it's great to be able to use what we have on hand to avoid the extra cost and waste.

No shredded Swiss? Try cheddar, Colby-jack or mozzarella. A little Parmesan or pepper-jack never hurt either.

If you have leftover cooked vegetables, there is no need to saute. Add them directly in with the cheese to the egg mixture.

      Crustless quiches are delicious. I often make them for the local farmers markets.

      I prefer the crust, but I do make no-crust quiche lots of times. Yum!
