Crustless Cheese and Onion Quiche

I love anything with pastry.  It is up there, in my opinion, with putting things between two slices of bread.  It improves almost anything.

Last night, though, I decided to make quiche at the last minute and to cut down on prep time I decided to try crustless quiche.  Something that had intrigued me, but I hadn’t tried because I really do like the crust.

Having tried this, I am now a convert and will definitely make it again.  It was so good that when I took my first bite I actually exclaimed, “Wow! This is good!”.

It is.
