Here is a great recipe for  CRUSTLESS QUICHE.  It is quick and easy enough that your kids surely be able to help with preparation.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Ingredients:

4 eggs

1  1/2 cups of  liquid  ( any combination of whole milk, half and half, cream;  we usually  use 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream)

1 – 1 1/2 cups grated cheese ( use anything on hand or buy it pre grated; we usually use a combination of cheddar and Monterey Jack)

2 cups chopped vegetables  ( onions, leeks, scallions, mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, spinach, broccoli or any combination thereof)

1-3 teaspoons fresh chopped herbs  (parsley, basil, chives)

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Saute chopped vegetables (in butter or olive oil)  until lightly browned,  and  then place in 9 inch pyrex pie plate.
 (be sure to use a slotted spoon to transfer  the veggies, too much liquid will make the quiche watery.)

Sprinkle the vegetables evenly with the grated cheese.

In a large measuring cup beat the eggs and  then add the  milk/cream, herbs, salt and pepper.

Pour over vegetables and cheese

Bake for 25-35 minutes.  (Knife should come out clean when done)

Let stand for 10 -15 minutes to firm up a bit

Can be eaten  hot or cold.

Variation:  Cut up some pre cooked bacon or ham  and saute along with vegetables.

This dish makes a highly nutritious  breakfast,  a filling after school snack, or  served with a green salad, an easy  dinner.

Grass-Fed Beef Snack Sticks!

Beef snack sticks (i.e. “Slim Jims”) are an extremely popular quick snack in our house. They make me happy because of the (essentially) zero glycemic index and our kids really enjoy them. So I was pleased to find there are versions of this wonderful snack that are more paleo-friendly. In other words, no added synthetics, wheat, sugar, or HFCS. I ordered a box of “Chomps Beef Sticks” recently. We went through the box fairly quickly and I’ve started recommending these to patients now!
