Cook's Tips

This quiche may be made without pie crust. After preheating oven, spray bottom and sides of 9-inch pie plate with PAM® Original No-stick Cooking Spray. Sprinkle 1/2 cup bread crumbs over surface and shake to coat bottom and sides evenly with crumbs. Fill with Egg Beaters mixture and bake as described in Step 3.
