Quick & Easy Crustless Quiche (great for keto, low carb & diabetic lifestyles)

This recipe is a staple in my house – and bonus, it freezes well! The ingredients listed below are a great way to use holiday leftovers, but you can use whatever combination of protein and veggies you like.

  • Ingredients:
    • 2 Tbsp butter
    • ½ cup ham, cubed
    • 1 med red bell pepper, chopped
