Notes: They say that real men don’t eat quiche. I say real Diabetics should eat crustless Quiche.
Only your imagination limits the kinds of quiche you can create. This one gives me that Ham and Swiss on rye taste
Quiche is notorious for having a soggy crust. Not using a crust eliminates the problem!.
1 shallot or 3 scallions chopped
1 Tbsp. butter
2 ounces ham, thickly cut and diced
3 eggs lightly beaten
Enough milk, half and half or cream to make 1 ½ cups when added to the eggs
½ cup shredded Swiss cheese. (you can substitute another cheese if you like)
Salt and pepper to taste.
Non- stick spray for the pie pan
How to prepare the recipe:
Pre heat the oven to 375.
Spray a 9 inch pie pan with a non- stick spray
Sautee the shallot or scallions in butter. Add the diced ham and cook until the ham starts to brown. Allow to cool.
Beat the eggs lightly and add the salt and pepper. Add the milk or cream until you have 1 ½ cups of liquid in total.
Evenly spread the ham mixture on the bottom of the pan. Cover with shredded cheese. Gently pour the egg mixture over the ham and cheese. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the quiche is browned and puffed.
Allow to cool a little before serving.
Suggestions: Replace the ham with:
Shrimp or crab
