Crustless Smoked Salmon Quiche

I make variations on this recipe, depending on what’s in the refrigerator—different types of Swiss cheeses, sometimes some thinly-sliced Maui onion, sometimes sliced leeks, sometimes, sometimes an entire fistful of chives. Sometimes whole milk, sometimes heavy cream, sometimes a dollop of sour cream on top. Invention is fun 🙂

    Crustless Vegetable Quiche

    This recipe lends itself to endless improv—just remember to pre-cook tough vegetables. SautĂ©ed onions are a wonderful addition, but they’re too high carb for me, so I make do with onion powder…your mileage may vary 🙂
