Most quiche dishes, like Quiche Lorraine, are often prepared with a buttery crust, heavy cream, cheese and bacon. We recommend a healthier version that does not skimp out on flavor and is also ideal for anyone following a gluten free diet or just looking to cut down on carbohydrates. This recipe is not only crustless, but it swaps in chicken for bacon, providing extra protein. 

Enjoy this cheesy crustless quiche recipe as a great breakfast or at your next brunch (or dinner!). Add in a side of green salad for extra vegetables.  You can also make it customizable and add in tomatoes, onions, green pepper or mushroom for additional flavor options.
