This recipe is simple and delicious. I have gluten intoleran members in my book club -- served with a side of fruit it is perfect. Made it for family and husband doesn't like mushrooms so substituted can of tomato bits once and sliced cherry tomatoes another time. Delish either way.

My main problem with this dish is limiting myself to one serving-lol! This was delicious and very easy to make. I substituted cooked, crumbled bacon for the ham because that's what I had on hand and substituted 1 cup of the Monterey Jack cheese amount with Monterey Jack/Cheddar blend because I ran out of straight Jack. My doubting husband really liked it, too, especially after I told him how low this dish is in carbs. We will be having this again and I may experiment a bit with other types of cheeses, as other reviewers have done or suggested. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has used reduced fat cheese in this. The fat content is a little on the high side for the size of the serving, mainly from the cheese. Another keeper recipe!

I'm not rating because I made too many changes so it wouldn't be fair. I did want to point out that a crustless quiche is actually called a frittata.

Amazing Vege-inclined meal. Even pals who are opposed to vegetables can't resist this one. Great job and keep up the good job with this article and site at large!

Made this and it was delicious! My family loved it and I am making it again to share with friends. I did omit the ham, and used a combination of Monterey jack and Gouda.

So good! The only change I made was using fresh spinach which I added after onion and mushrooms were softened along with the ham. The spinach wilts quickly and blends right into the mix.

To Barb Boogie. I have used ROASTED chicken in a recipe almost identical to this one. Just dice or shread 3/4 C or so and use in place of ham. I usually roast up a few semi boneless breasts at 1 time. I serve 2 for dinner, then save 1 or 2 for chicken salad. Then shread up some for quiche. It pairs well with the spinach . Or you "could" just skip the ham, as a few others did. Crumbled turkey sausage (Italian hot or sweet) works well too. This recipe is a tad too dense, so do not add too much. OR do as others did and add another egg ( I add 2 egg whites) OR reduce spinach a little I used hand shredded cheddar in my quiche. But crumbled fetta chesse(8 oz.) has also been very well received by guests as well.

BarbBoogie, I haven't made this one but i used to make several other types for my Son-In-Law who doesn't eat pork or beef and used or turkey sausage or turkey bacon which I paired with a mix of swiss cheese.

BarbBoogie, I haven't tried it, but my thoughts would be smoked salmon if you don't use pork or beef. I think it would go with the rest of the ingredients.
