Crustless Vegetable Quiche

This is  a great, clean meal to eat for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

I tend to make a big batch, cut it into individual slices and freeze them in plastic baggies.They are the perfect breakfast or lunch to grab and take to work when you’re running late! It is a great, easy recipe that reheats well.
