Naked quiche is one of my favorite, easy go-to meals. It’s perfect for breakfast or dinner (because, let’s be honest, sometimes breakfast for dinner is awesome). And when using pastured eggs, fresh garden veggies, and spices, this little one-pan-meal is full of nourishment.
It’s called “naked” quiche because there is no crust. Don’t get me wrong… I love a good crust every now and then (as long as it’s made with real fats like butter, lard, or coconut oil). But considering that most store bought crusts are loaded with industrialized, hydrogenated fats, your body with thank you for leaving it out. Plus, naked quiche becomes one of those super simple and fast meals when life gets busy.

5 eggs (preferably pastured)
