Easy Skillet Zucchini Quiche

Removing the crust from a standard quiche recipe substantially reduces the time it takes to make. On days when you do have a bit more time, feel free to bake the quiche instead of broiling it—after combining the ingredients in the bowl, bake at 325°F for 30 minutes, or until the quiche has set.
