Spinach and Tomato Crustless Quiche

Once upon a time there was a quiche. A broccoli cheddar crustless quiche, to be exact.

I was craving quiche one night a few weeks ago. I found a recipe for a broccoli cheddar crustless quiche on Pinterest and decided to give it a try. My plan was to make it ahead so the Mr. and I would have breakfast (or lunch in my case) the next day. Well, as I am learning on a daily basis, things don't always go as planned. I was cooking pretty late that night. The quiche came out of the oven at about 10 pm, and I didn't want to put it straight into the refrigerator because I'm a weirdo. Anyways, since the Mr. is working second shift right now, I thought I could leave it out to cool, and he could put it in the fridge before he came to bed.

WRONG.

The poor man was so tired that he came to bed without putting the quiche in the refrigerator, so it sat out all. night. long. RIP, Mr. Quiche.

Since we obviously were not going to eat quiche that had been sitting out overnight, I came up with a new plan. A more delicious plan. I'm actually kind of happy that we didn't have to eat that "meh" looking Pinterest-inspired quiche.

Enter the Spinach and Tomato Crustless Quiche.

Guys, this is a game changer. Be prepared to be ruined for all other breakfast foods. It is delicious, easy, and makes great leftovers. It's even gluten free! The best part of it all? It doesn't taste like "health food", even though it is packed with healthy ingredients. So get cracking! Bon appetit!
