Crustless Asparagus-Mushroom Quiche

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by lauren.doak

This is a variation on a crustless quiche I found here at recipezaar. Since my boyfriend is a picky eater I used asparagus instead of spinach and we were very pleased! Feel free to add sausage, or pour into a frozen crust if you'd like more flavor.

This recipe tasted like diet food. I like to cut calories whereever possible, but this quiche almost totally sacrified flavor for low calories. I would never make it again without MANY adjustments to the ingredients and the preparation method. No pan size is indicated, but I learned to use either a 9" pie pan or a 9 1/2" quiche pan at the largest. Nothing bigger than either of these. This quiche effort was a major disappointment for me and my husband.
