Crustless Spinach & Mushroom Quiche
Almost every home cook has a quiche disaster story. Soggy vegetables, runny eggs, a crust that doesn’t flake, a center that collapses like a sinkhole – these are just a few of the things that can ruin a homemade quiche. Still, you don’t need to be a professional chef to perfect this elegant and savory breakfast treat. Let your slow cooker do the work for you. Plus, if you want to turn this into a vegetarian recipe, simply skip the bacon. (Image via Better Homes & Gardens)
