Broccoli Quiche, Crust-less

Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone AppI make quiches several times a month, crust-less ones, because I'm always watching the carbs, and because they're so easy, healthy, and economical.  


Quiches are basically 2 cups of anything (veggies and/or meat or seafood) milk, cheese, eggs and seasoning baked in a pie shell or crust-less by using a 1/2 cup of Bisquick in the mixture. This is a tasty vegetable pie.


Quiche makes a good breakfast, lunch or dinner and easily feeds 4-6.  I keep fresh or frozen broccoli on hand at all times for a side veggie, broccoli soup, or for this quiche.
