Crustless Kale Quiche: Gluten-Free

Who loves breakfast for lunch or dinner? I do. I was craving something with kale, and I thought to myself, why not  a Crustless Kale Quiche? My daughter, Leigh, decided to help me  (payment for a new comforter she’s been wanting). I jotted down a recipe that I thought might work, and I gave it to her. Amazingly enough, it worked. We sat down and ate half of it for lunch, and she said, “The kale is what makes this so good.” (music to a parent’s ears). She took it upon herself to add turkey bacon, but you could easily prepare it without it. It’s great with the mix of mushrooms, kale and bacon, egg whites, eggs and cheese. Later, my boys were skeptical about having quiche for dinner, but before I knew it, the entire Crustless Kale Quiche was devoured.

  1. Made this with my boyfriend at the weekend and it really is deliious and so easy to put together. Thanks very much for a recipe I’ll definitely be using often.

  2. I made this for a group this weekend, and it was a big hit! I modified it slightly based on what I had (used Gouda cheese, five whole eggs, and also threw in some chopped green onions, basil, and parsley since I had some that needed using). Thanks for a great recipe that got a great reception.

  3. I love this Quiche but I am on Weight Watchers and need to know how many points this is ! Can anyone tell me ? Thanks
