Oma's Crustless Spinach Quiche

This crustless spinach quiche is PERFECT if you're needing something low-carb. If you don't think this is German, then read on.

Actually Quiche originated in the Franconian region of Germany (near the French border). It was called Küeche (Kuchen is German for "cake") and that became Quiche in French. Who knew?
