Avocado and Goat Cheese are a perfect pair but when you add in bacon it really packs a flavorful punch. You'll love this crustless quiche so much you won't miss the crust. Hey, but if you do, don't let me stop you from pouring it into a pie crust!
When my husband and I lived in Bartow, Florida there was a little bakery that made quiche daily. Often, the two of us would go out and have a little breakfast together there. In preparation for my son's birth, I bought several quiche to keep in my fridge for the midwife and my kids to eat since I wouldn't be cooking. You know how food can just take you to a certain place in time? That's where quiche takes me!
If you've never tried to prepare a quiche, don't worry, it's way easier than it looks. It's basically scrambled eggs with goodies in it and baked in the oven instead of on the stovetop. Though if you want a nice treat, bake it in your iron skillets. Delish! In fact, some of the quiche in these photos were baked in a loaf pan.
I never had tasted a baked avocado until I decided to throw one in this quiche I was making for my mom after a recent surgery which left her unable to cook. Let me know if you try this recipe!
