I always loved zucchini quiche but this Crustless Zucchini Quiche tastes absolutely amazing plus made in muffin tins recipe the perfect on the go breakfast!


Lucky for me I get zucchini fresh all year long in Florida but I also freeze it shredded you may have seen my tips on freezing zucchini?


When it's lower in price I just buy them up, shred or cube and freeze, it's so easy and then I have it all year long ready to use.


I am a big fan of crustless quiche and zucchini quiche, especially in summer when we want to eat lighter.


So today I tried to make them in a muffin tray using some shredded zucchini.

Eat healthily and lower your carb intake!




One of my favorite vegetables during the summer is zucchini.


Quiche is a light delicious brunch or even dinner for me. I am more of a vegetable than a meat eater.


Actually, I hardly ever eat meat. Why? Well for starters everyone has had bypass surgery sibling wise in my family.


Mom and dad passed from heart problems, my Aunt had a bypass, brothers both had a bypass.


Now I maintain my carb intake, eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid anything that has high cholesterol.


I didn't eliminate everything, just in moderation, we don't eat pasta three times a week anymore.

We didn't watch carbs growing up



It really is very difficult to eat healthy when you grow up eating delicious pasta in an all Italian family.


We always had fabulous Italian rich pastries and lots of carbs.


I try to maintain a consistent weight and have it checked every year.



I also have high blood pressure which is all hereditary and eat low sodium.

Eating healthy is a way of life



In most of my recipes, I will substitute lower fat but check the sugar content, it doesn't mean it lower fat if it sugar laced!


The sugar is a carb that turns into fat! If you prefer a crust, I have also provided the recipe below. This one is crustless.


The little cupcakes are packed with delicious cheese and garlic flavor.


Enjoy the quiche, it's healthy and delicious!
