A Kiwi’s Crustless Quiche

I owe this one to my good Kiwi friend Emma.  Yes, Emma is from New Zealand, one of the most beautiful countries on Earth – hands down.  If you have not been, get there.  Emma and I share a love of cooking (actually she is an excellent baker!) and putting our own twist on things.  Sometimes we are motivated to use up leftovers.  Other times we try to find ways of saving time, or perhaps calories, although the goal is always towards health, not dieting.  Diet is a dirty word in my house!  Anyhow, this is a wonderful recipe that will allow you the freedom to add your own ingredients as well as save time and, dare I say, fat grams!

Emma’s Crustless Quiche – Basic Recipe

3 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup self rising flour (or add 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder to regular flour)
1 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup bacon
1 onion, chopped
Whisk together the wet ingredients.   Add the dry, then the cheese, bacon and onion.  Pour into a buttered pie dish and bake at 325 degrees for approximately one hour.  That’s it!
