Crustless Nicoise Quiche


Inspired after reading up at MilkLife.com, and realizing that I don't always make the healthiest of food choices, I'm making a serious effort to get my body the nutrients it needs to thrive in the most delicious of dishes. For me it's all about the idea of starting my day off strong. Since I'm yet to meet a quiche I didn't love, I decided to develop this healthier one that I can make for breakfast on a regular basis. This recipe begins with a mix of eggs and milk—that's right, go big or go home! Being extra good, I made this quiche crustless and, man-oh-man it's delish—and gone! It was so good, I ate it three days in a row. Once it was gone, I was ready to make it all over again—and did! Watch the minute long video of me making it, here.
