Crustless Quiche with Peppers and Onions

June 21, 2016


Author Notes: I've been making versions of this since I was a kid. Frankly, I am estimating the amounts for most of the recipe, as it tolerates a lot of variation. I've also added diced up meats and leftover meats that might be hanging around, including pepperoni, cooked ham, bacon, sausage, etc.Brian Coppola
