Crustless Quiche Lorraine

by Erin

I promise you won’t even notice that the crust is missing after one bite. This quiche has Swiss cheese, onion, and a whole package of bacon in it!

I know, I know. Why would you want a quiche without the crust? It’s the best part! But with a quiche this good, you won’t even miss it I promise. I made it for brunch this past weekend and it was a huge hit. In fact I may have converted some with-crust lovers to the crustless side. Also, I didn’t know what made a quiche a “quiche lorraine” until I googled it. Apparently a lorraine consists of bacon, Swiss cheese, and onion. A whole 12 oz. package of bacon went into this baby. Not complaining about that!
