    Crustless Chicken Sausage Quiche

    So simple to make!

    Traditional quiche is delicious but can be full of calories, mainly because of the crust. This crustless quiche has tons of flavor and fewer calories. You won’t even think twice about the fact that there isn’t any crust!

    This is a great make ahead lunch for the week. I made 2 and froze one. They reheat perfectly and can last in the refrigerator for up to a week.

    You can definitely mix it up when choosing ingredients for your quiche. I made these with sweet Italian sausage, hatch green chilies, onion and spinach.
