    I’ve tried to make a crustless quiche twice & it’s always ended up a load of slop. Decided to give this a go last night for our lunch today. Turned out perfect, I used mushrooms in place of broccoli also added some leftover cooked chicken. So happy I finally made one that worked as it’s such a versatile recipe.

    This is very tasty and turned out really well. I had to bake it for more like 35-40 minutes in a convection oven at 350 F in a glass pie dish. Easy and reliable. Served beautifully.

    Many DD recipes call for onion powder. Can we substitute with freshly-chopped onions? What is the conversion from dried to fresh for onions? (e.g. rule of thumb for herbs is 1 tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried). Also, are all onions roughly the same carb count? This crustless quiche is delicious and a new household favourite. We often swap out the broccoli for the equivalent carb count of peppers or mushrooms. Thank you!

    Can you please tell me how many strips of bacon is equivalent to 4oz?

    That will depend on the size of your bacon strips. Most bacon is sold in 1lb packs, so if that's the case for you, take the total number of strips and divide by 4. That will tell you how many strips are in 4oz.
