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 Noodle Dump Dinner

This creamy tuna-noodle dump dinner is made entirely in one baking dish, egg noodles included. It tastes just like the casserole you grew up eating but requires less equipment (and cleanup).

So, I&rsquove been trying to find more ways to get my tuna fix that will satisfy both of us, and I recently came upon a recipe for Rice and Tuna Pie in one of my mom&rsquos cookbooks.

Rice creates the bottom &lsquocrust&rsquo for this tuna rice quiche and Swiss cheese and tuna mingle with flavorful onions and green peppers in the eggy body.
