Quick and Easy Crustless Quiche Recipe for Mother's Day (or any day!)

By Ed



Robin does not like eggs, but she does have a few egg dishes she loves.  When I asked the kids what they wanted to do for Mother`s Day Breakfast, they said her absolute favourite egg dish: Quiche.

This simple, crustless quiche is great for days (and dads) who want to make a fancy, delicious breakfast, but with little labour and clean-up (its early in the morning, damn it).  




Quick and Easy
Crustless Quiche


Ingredients:
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup low-fat cream
  • 3/4 cup flavourful cheese (I used old cheddar, but something swiss would rock)
  • 1 cup of your favourite frozen veggies (this one features broccoli, onions and mushrooms) 
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 Tbsp Flour
* Other possibilities: precooked Bacon, ham, diced tomato, fresh herbs, pretty much anything


Steps:

Preheat Oven to 400F

1.   Spray a 10" glass or ceramic pie plate liberally with non-stick spray.  Toss the cheese and flour in the plate with a fork, working it around to coat the plate and the cheese.


2.   Toss the frozen Veggies in and mix them with the cheese just enough to distribute everything evenly.  (Wait a minute Ed.  Things are getting pretty crammed in that quiche... where do the eggs and milk go?  Don't worry, it will be fine.)



3.  Mix Eggs, milk and cream together in a measuring cup.  Whisk with a fork till thoroughly mixed.  Slowly pour the mixture over the whole quiche.  Make sure is has a chance to let the eggs sneak into all the nooks and crannies.  (Yes, food can have nooks and crannies.)



(The Power of Surface Tension!  OK, a little bit of egg was left in the measuring cup.  Our dog Wally got a special bonus treat on Mother's Day too.)



4.  Carefully transfer the quiche to the oven and cook for 30-40 minutes (frozen veggies will vary the cook time slightly).  Check with a knife after 25 mins - the quiche is done when the knife comes out cleanly when inserted in the middle of the quiche.  It needs to rest for 10-15 mins after it comes out to cool and set.  Run a knife carefully around the edge, slice and enjoy.



 And what about the clean-up?  A cheese grater, measuring cup, chopping board and fork (I used the same fork to scoop out flour, toss the cheese and eventually mix the eggs.  You can totally wash that up while the quiche cooks.  I know you'll still have time leftover - I wrote most of this post during the cook-cool time.
