Quiche Variations:

Cheese: Swiss is a good choice if you don’t have Gruyere. I love smoked Gouda or a smoked cheddar for quiche. Mozzarella is also a great option. 

Vegetables: Mushrooms, onions, sweet peppers and spinach are great additions. Vegetables should be at least partially cooked and dry. 

Meats: I love adding bacon, ham, or sausage. Meats need to be cooked through before adding to the quiche. 

Crustless Quiche: I once saw a meme that crustless quiche was actually a sad version of a pie. I tend to agree, I love the crust. However, if you are cutting carbs, skip the crust and enjoy!
