You can see from the photos above that I was able to use one of my favorite kitchen tools to make this light and healthy quiche recipe, the timeless and versatile cast iron skillet. My original intention was to bake this quiche in a pie dish but as you can see it stayed in the same vessel from which it started. I love putting this skillet to good use, especially at our small, rustic lake cottage.
Use your skillet and turn this into a cast iron quiche!
There is no no flour in this dish and in fact there is no grain at all in this cast iron quiche.
