Zucchini, onion, red bell pepper, and bacon are used to make this gloriously easy no-fuss gluten-free crustless zucchini bacon quiche. Try this tasty and deceptively easy recipe idea for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or even dinner!
Calling all brunchers!
The weekend is approaching!
Yes, I know it's a couple of days away BUT the week is more than half-way done and that means we are more than half-way to a more relaxed morning where we're not chowing down a quick bowl of cereal and rushing out the door to get grown-ups to work on time and kiddos to school before the bell rings.
The weekend allows for a more thoughtful and intentional breakfast. And maybe if the kids sleep in just a little we can even call it brunch.
Enter the crustless zucchini bacon quiche.
While brunch sounds like it should be something kinda fancy and involved, this quiche is 'easy' masquerading as 'fancy.' And better yet, it's stealth health at it's finest. You tricky quiche you.
This tasty quiche recipe was passed on to me last summer by a friend when I had an abundance of zucchini growing in my garden and a plethora of parenting woes over how to get my oldest child to eat something from the vegetable food group. Yes, it's come to stealth health parenting. Don't judge.
It's gluten-free stealth health in the tastiest
Let's get cookin'!
How to make this simple quiche
Step 1: Prep your ingredients using a food processor
Say hello to my food processor (again). Have I mentioned how ridiculously awesome and revolutionizing this kitchen appliance is?! Yup. (See here, here, and here.) I can't live without a food processor. You shouldn't either.
The food processor is what makes this quiche come together so quickly. Need to grate some zucchini? Put it through the food processor with the awesome grating attachment and with the wave of a magic wand (or the on button) it's done. Need to chop up some onion and bell pepper into stealth health size? Insert the chopping blade and done! Need to grate a bunch of cheese? Absolutely! Put the grating attachment back on, and you've got grated cheese almost instantaneously. And as an added bonus, the on/off button provides entertainment for the kiddos. Adult supervised of course.
Step 2: Put everything into a large bowl and mix
Throw all of those magically food processed ingredients in a bowl with some baking powder, this
Step 3: Pour into a pie dish and bake!
Pour the quiche mixture it into a large deep-dish pie pan. Sprinkle a little more cheese on top along with some shelled sunflower seeds (don't skip the sunflower seeds even if you think it sounds a little weird) and pop it the oven. Easy peasy.
Step 4: Enjoy your morning with a tasty quiche
Then sit back, kick your feet up, and enjoy a morning cuppa something tasty while your quiche bakes. Just 35 minutes later this beautiful quiche will welcome you to the weekend. Now how's that for Saturday morning brunch goals? #fistbump
Here's to the weekend fellow brunchers! Saturday is looking pretty good don't you think?
