The secret to a light and tasty quiche is to remove the crust! Add a leafy salad on the side and it’s perfect for an easy dinner or lunch with friends. It can even be made the day before, refrigerated, then simply warmed in the oven just before serving.

Gruyere is a firm Swiss cheese. You can replace it with regular Swiss cheese, Jarlsberg or even reduced-fat tasty cheese, if you prefer. Don’t use a loose-base quiche tin for this recipe as the mixture will leak out during cooking.
