Skinny Crab Quiche Recipe

Crabmeat, zucchini, cheddar cheese and green onions flavor this savory crustless quiche. I take this to potlucks, cut into appetizer-size slices. As a diabetic, I know there will be at least one dish there I can eat guilt-free. —Nancy Romero, Clarkston, Washington

"

Delicious! Great flavor for a light dish. I added a little more zucchini and green onions but other wise followed the recipe. Had to cook 3 extra minutes (33 minutes total). Using whole eggs took 7 eggs.
