1 thought on “Low Carb Ham and Cheese Crustless Quiche”

  • This was super delicious! I served this for brunch, I made two, one with broccoli, shaved ham, cheddar, and green onion. The other was chicken sausage, spinach, and gruyere. I added salt and pepper. I did not cook the green onions, just added everything and then poured in the egg mixture. I didn’t miss the crust here at all, the eggs were fluffy, well seasoned and slightly brown at 40 minutes. Can’t wait to make this again, you can add so many different things!
