Crustless Spinach & Potato Quiche

Quiche is one of rich pastry of French cuisine which can be served hot or cold. Most famous quiche in France is Quiche Lorraine prepared with savoury custard with bacon or lardon topped with emmantel cheese.Usually prepared as open faced pastry crust with a savory filling, quiche can be prepared even as crustless. Yes you heard it rite, you can make some fantastic crustless quiche with your favourite ingredients in it. If you go through my space, you can find varieties of quiche either with crust, or crustless and even eggless quiche. Quiche can be prepared quickly however its loaded with proteins as eggs plays an important role in preparing this ultimate French pastry. Since egg and spinach is added in my today's crustless quiche, needless to say how protein rich is this dish. No crust is needed for making this quiche, if you plan to bake this same quiche with a crust, bake  yours as an open faced pastry with crust.
