Crustless Quiche That Is So Easy To Make

I make a crustless quiche when I need to clear out my fridge. This is a great way to use up vegetables that need cooking.

Head straight on to the recipe for Crustless Quiche ♥

In 1990 my Aunt moved to Sydney to be close to her parents. Stephanie has made a life there with her husband and children and before this year I had not met my cousins who are in their teens. I have not been back to Sydney for over 20 years. One day I plan on getting there to visit my sister and nieces, and all my aunts and cousins. In 2015 Stephanie was in Paris with her children. We happened to be passing through on our way to Decize. I asked her if she would please meet us at the train station. We had an hour’s wait and just having coffee together would be a blessing. By the time we got to the station we were half an hour later than I had told her. Thankfully for us, she too was late and arrived a few minutes after we did.

Our train was delayed, and so I sat in the train and Stephanie on the platform and we tried to cram 25 years into a few hours. This year she and John (her husband) came to South Africa to show their children where they grew up. John went home early and Stephanie, Lyndon and Hannah came to Cape Town. Once Lyndon had returned to Australia Stephanie and Hannah started their exploration of the winelands. This ended with a two night visit with us. I was so happy to see my aunt, and to meet my cousin. As Hannah is vegetarian I decided to make this crustless quiche. It is my go to recipe when I am not sure what time we will sit down to eat. Perfect with a salad, this is all you need for a meal.
