    Keeferop's Note:

    I have been working on perfecting the perfect crustless quiche recipe for years. I always use spinach, but I bought some Rainbow Swiss Chard at the local farmer's market today, and I thought I'd give it a try in quiche. I used Rainbow Chard (pink/yellow/white/orange stems---- BEAUTIFUL), but you can use any chard (or try substituting other greens) I do notice that fresh greens give a much better taste than frozen greens though!

      Wonderful! I'm not a big fan of "greens", so this was a great way to utilize the Rainbow Chard from my CSA. I sauteed 1.25 lb of chard with a whole sweet onion and a few sliced garlic cloves. With so much chard, I used 6 eggs and 1.5 cup skim milk. I whisked about 1 Tbs of homemade pesto into the egg mixture. Yum! I used a combination of Swiss and Italian Blend shredded cheeses with a bit of leftover crumbled feta. I baked this in a 10" square CorningWare casserole for 45 minutes. Infinitely adaptable!

      This is a fantastic recipe! I get a lot of chard from my CSA, and this is a great way to use it! And, the recipe is incredibly easy - takes no time at all to make this. I've pretty much followed the recipe - but I do use an entire bunch of chard instead of half, and I experiment with the cheeses (basically whatever I have on hand goes in), and it always comes out great. I've done a mozzarella/cheddar combo, cheddar only, and this last time I used feta and cheddar with great results. I once used spinach instead of chard for a New Year's brunch (I was afraid people might balk at the idea of chard), and I received compliments on that as well. I'm going to try it with shredded zucchini next - just got a ton of that from the CSA :)

      This was incredible and SO easy! I actually cut the stems out of the chard, chopped them and cooked them a bit first, then I added the leaves. I subbed 1 leak for the onion. I used Trader Joe's Iberico cheese (like a manchego) and parm because that's what I had on hand. LOVE LOVE LOVED this recipe! Will definitely make for brunch, dinner, or even breakfast at work!
