Crustless Smoked Salmon Quiche Recipe

Simple, easy brunch, dinner, party or potluck dish

I made this dish for a ladies lunch and had requests for the recipe and folks looking for it to show up at a later potluck! They were outa luck, but I got the message. Folks, even men, like this recipe.

I’ve substituted crab for the salmon and added mushrooms. It is an easy dish to make that doesn’t require a lot: 1 bowl, 1 pie plate and an oven. If you like, add your favorite hot sauce. We like Salt Lick BBQ’s Lauren’s Spicy Recipe habanero (aff. link).

It’s also a lovely make-ahead dish ~ that’s why it’s good for a potluck or company coming.
