Crustless Asparagus Quiche

Quiche is a classic dish of French Cuisine.

It is generally an open pie. It can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The crustless quiche is basically a cheese custard with optional fillings. The result is delicious.

The lack of crust make this quiche a frittata-like.

I like to bake the crustless quiche in a muffin pan for individual portions. They can be frozen for later use.

I often change the filling, using broccoli or spinach instead of asparagus or goat cheese instead of gruyere cheese.
