Quiche Lorraine is a dish with roots that go all the way back to the 1500s! It's no wonder a dish this delicious has stood the test of time. In fact, it even has its own National food holiday (it's May 20th of each year - look it up!). We can understand why a dish this delicious remains so popular. What could possibly be wrong with got eggs + milk + bacon? Add to that a handlful of crips scallions and mild, nutty swiss cheese and bake it to perfection in a warm oven - we're seeing stars!
Quiches are oftentimes made with a shell or crust. To keep ours weight loss friendly, we've discarded the crust and swapped regular milk for unsweetened almond milk. With a dash of pepper and nutmeg, you've got enough flavor to not even notice that carbohydrate heavy crust is gone! We love this recipe because it makes enough to feed 6 people (or feed yourself 6 times - we won't judge!). With one bowl and one pan, your time fussing around in the kitchen is minimal and cleanup is a breeze!
Leftovers can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheating is simple and can be done in a microwave (fastest) or air fryer (closest to "freshly baked").
