Crustless Ham and Artichoke Quiche

Crustless Ham and Artichoke Quiche

I don't often re post a recipe but this quiche is just too good to be hidden. We made it for dinner tonight and it was delicious. It stood on it's own, it didn't need salsa, ketchup or any thing.
I like this recipe because it doesn't have a crust. You save time and calories. Tonight we made it with fat free plain yogurt and low fat cottage cheese. We used mini Bella mushrooms and a jar of marinated artichoke hearts. This is a great recipe to 'clean out' the cheese drawer. We used Parmesan, Gruyere and medium cheddar. It was a great combo. I thought about adding some blanched asparagus. So you really can't go wrong 
with this quiche, there are so many ways to make it yours. Try it soon!

Crustless Ham and Artichoke Quiche
Saute' 1/4 pound sliced mushrooms in a little butter
Add to:
4 eggs, well beaten
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
1 cup low fat cottage cheese
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
¼ cup flour
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
4 drops Tabasco
1 ½ cups shredded cheese, I like pepper jack or sharp cheddar
¾ cup artichoke hearts, diced
1 cup diced ham

Pour in a greased 10 inch quiche pan. Bake 350 35-45 minutes till golden brown and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or cold with diced tomatoes or fresh salsa. This is another great recipe from Judi Sears. It is perfect for weekend brunch, leftovers (if you have them--and we do now there are just two of us) make a great lunch. This recipe is in my 'most requested' file. Enjoy!

This looks so good - and I think no crust is better, as you can save room to eat more of the gorgeous filling.

Sounds delicious and I love that it doesn't need a crust. Saving calories on something like this leaves more room for something tasty like cookies or cake. ;)

Yum...what a good idea to have something crustless like this. Sometimes it is nice to cut the cals in little ways here and there so you can have something as wonderful as these ingredients all snuggling in one place!
