One of my favorite meals to make and coincidentally, one of the most popular recipes here at ZagLeft is for a crustless quiche.

A quiche is one of those perfect dishes that’s ideal to enjoy for breakfast, lunch or for dinner. The ingredient list is short – eggs, cream and your favorite fillings. When I set out to scale down my original crustless quiche recipe into a “Recipe For One”, I discovered that 2 eggs and 3 tablespoons of cream provided the perfect “base” for a crustless quiche. It’s just the right amount of eggs and dairy and will give you a creamy, delicious custard every single time.
