This quick and easy quiche is made with a frozen pie crust, however, it can also be made without the crust for a gluten free option. Quiche is such a versatile dish. Pair it with some fresh fruit for a healthy breakfast or with a romaine salad for a lunch or dinner option. Additionally, the recipe can be adjusted to include a variety of vegetables. Try adding broccoli, tomatoes, mushrooms, or bell peppers to increase both the color palette and nutrient content of the quiche.
