Crustless Chicken and Cheese Quiche

As soon as I saw this recipe for Chicken and Cheese Quiche, I knew I wanted to make it in my kitchen. I thought about making it with an almond crust, but decided against it. I think I’m glad I did. It may be just a bit too rich with an almond and butter crust. This crustless chicken and cheese quiche is perfect for dinner, but would make a great breakfast, brunch or any-time-of-day meal!

I love how golden brown it gets…
