Stove Top Skillet Quiche

Marty Hufnagel


Crustless Quiche with awesome savory flavor is a quick and easy meal any time of day. We especially enjoy the tiny skillet versions. A side of avocado and your meal is served! Changing the spices & herbs can turn this into a completely different taste so feel free to play with it.
This recipe fits a paleo plan even though it does have cheese which can bother some people. I used the Queso Fresco Cacique skim milk cheese and Senor Gusto crumbling cheese from the Mexican shelf because they don't bother me as much and it seems to keep it's freshness longer.

  3. Pour into heated skillet. Cover immediately and let it sit undisturbed for a couple of minutes.
  4. Check to make sure it's not too hot.Use a rubber spatula, loosen the bottom and sides of the skillet and stir around to get ingredients evenly incorporated. Adjust heat if necessary and replace cover and check back occasionally until nearly finished.
