Quiche is the ultimate egg dish, with all the goodness of an omelet baked into a flaky crust. To reduce the fat or for a gluten-free option, eliminate the pie crust and pour the egg mixture into lightly-greased ramekins or a pie plate. Be sure to let the quiche rest at least 10 minutes to allow it to set before serving.
