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

"We really liked the flavors of this dish. It ended up taking longer to cook than the directions called for, but it still turned out worth the wait. My son devoured his piece! I followed the recipe, other than the paprika, which I would add next time as it was simply an oversight on my part."

"<p>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.</p>"

"Very good! I did bake about 10 minutes longer since I used egg whites. Came out crispy on top and delicious."
