Who needs crust? We really enjoyed this crustless quiche. It baked up all puffy, looking and tasting like a cross between a quiche and a souffle. It was fairly bland, even with the hot sauce, but the crabmeat flavor was nicely prominent. I substituted spinach for the endive and it was perfect. We don't eat much cheese, but I'll bet it would be a wonderful addition to this simple yet delicious recipe. It's in my cookbook to stay, Chia.
