The mornings that I have work are crazy hectic for me. I hit Crossfit from 6 to 7 and then I have to: head home, shower, get ready, and be out the door by 7:50 to get to work on time. Because of this tight squeeze, I usually end up eating breakfast in the car. Which kind of sucks but I'm used to it by now. Hard boiled eggs get boring quickly, so I'm always trying to find new on-the-go breakfast options.
Enter quiche. It is the perfect take-along meal because it has protein and veggies all in one package, is still tasty when cold, and easy to eat in the car! Not to mention this recipe makes a TON and it keeps well. Breakfast for the week? Done.
Lazy Crustless Quiche (paleo)
1 sweet potato, shredded
1 zucchini, shredded & squeezed of excess water
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
12 eggs, lightly beaten
Salt and black pepper
1. Preheat oven to 375*.
2. Combine all ingredients.
3. Pour into a greased 9x13" pan.
4. Bake for about 45 minutes.
5. Cool in pan on wire rack. Will deflate a bit upon cooling.
6. Eat warm, at room temperature, or cold. Don't forget to top with hot sauce!
Doesn't everyone drive around with hot sauce in their car? (And I was stopped at a red light, so no hating.)
This recipe is super forgiving. Add any veggies you have hanging around, toss in some cheese if you aren't paleo, or sub out some of the whole eggs for egg whites. It is pretty hard to mess up quiche so don't be shy!
Let me know what you put in your quiche!
