Come dinner time the thought of feeding the family might bring forth feelings of anxiety and general irritation. Right? Sure, you might have all your ducks in a row this week and have meals prepared and planned for the family. However, if your week seems to just run away from you, I thought of sharing this super easy, filling and delicious Crustless Chicken, Bacon and Mushroom Quiche with you all today.
I don’t think there is any other fuss-free meal as easy as Quiche. The thing I love most about it is that you can easily use leftover meats and vegetables. It is so versatile, that there really are no limits as to what ingredients you can use. It also feeds a crowd and me for one am very happy about the fact that it can pretty much fill lunchboxes to the rim.
I always use the following ratio for my quiche base:
3 large, free-range eggs
1 cup milk/cream/dairy free milk
2 cups good quality cheddar or gouda cheese.
Ditch the Crust
I know, I know, we all love a buttery, flaky, crispy quiche crust. You can totally go that route for sure, and I recommend using this recipe for a delectable crusty quiche. I am more inclined to keep mine crustless, only for the reason that I wanted a low carb, high protein dinner for the caveman.
Love your Leftovers
A motto I live by and ensuring no food waste – I use leftover roast chicken for most of my quiche recipes. Add your fried mushrooms, onion, garlic and crispy bacon with the base of your quiche and you are sorted. Or use your leftover roast veggies, for a nourishing vegetarian quiche.
