We’re calling this “As You Wish” because you really can get creative with this crustless quiche. I have offered several variations at the bottom of this post, but just about any ingredients that you think sound good are worth a try added to this basic cheese quiche. Another option that is always a hit: Cut the quiche into small (about 1″) cubes and serve them as an appetizer. I’m the first to admit this is a pretty heavy recipe and the appetizer option is a great way to have a little taste without undoing your whole day’s calories!
