Crustless Tuna Quiche

Here is a protein rich and a low-carb dish that is suitable also for gluten-free diets. These are great to have at breakfast, brunch or even a light lunch or a side dish. They are filled with tuna, eggs, cheese, onion and milk. By not eating the pie crust you are saving yourself so many calories without compromising on taste. Feel free to change cooked shrimp/ chicken/ crab for tuna. I love to eat these straight out of the oven with a side salad. However, they can be frozen and reheated. Pleasespray the muffin tins with cooking spray, to make sure they do not stick to the pan. Happy eating!

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, cheese, tuna, salt and black pepper.

Add the cooked onion and stir to homogenize the mixture.

Spoon the tuna batter evenly into the prepared muffin pan, filling each almost to the top

Tuna Quiche with Cracker Crust

Quiche is a French pastry that looks complicated to make and when bought in a bakeshop, it is quite expensive. But it is simply just a savory custard which is a mixture of eggs, milk, and cheese combined with vegetables and seafood or meat then baked in crust in less than an hour. You will be surprised how affordable and readily available the ingredients are in making this tuna quiche (keesh). This holiday season this can be a nice addition to your Christmas parties or Noche Buena. Try it!

To make the filling In a bowl blend milk, cream of mushroom soup and eggs until smooth. Set aside. Heat oil in a pan and saute onions until transparent. Add tuna flakes and saute about 5 minutes. Take the chilled crust and grate 1/4 of the cheese bar over it. Spoon the tuna over the cheese dot with pimientos. Grate remaining cheese on top. Season with paprika. Bake for 45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand at least 10 minutes before slicing.

How Do You Like Your Tuna?

For as long as I can remember, tuna has equaled tuna salad for me. Just add a little mayo, maybe some seasonings and I was happy. I didn&rsquot even really need bread with crackers or over lettuce was fine by me.

I&rsquove even been known to eat tuna salad it straight out of the bowl.

Tim, on the other hand, lacks my extreme fondness for any creamy &lsquosalad&rsquo (coleslaw, ham salad, tuna salad, you get the idea).

He does, however, like his tuna warm.

Which poses a bit of a problem, since I have no idea what to do with tuna, sans mayo, and warm.
