Making a crustless quiche for brunch tomorrow. Realize recipe calls for parchment paper...don't have any! Can you substitute aluminum foil?

I CAN'T go back to the grocery store and deal with the throngs..

Thanks!

PS I know you can't use grocery bags or waxed paper....

    How does the recipe want you to use the parchment?

      It says, " Grease and line the bottom and sides of a 10-inch quiche mold or springform pan with parchment paper."

        The recipe is actually called Crustless Quiche Clafoutis if that's any help.

        assuming it's to line the pan - I have made mini crustless quiches (very eggy, though) in nonstick muffin tins and it worked fine. I am wondering if the parchment is to help you get it out of the pan. Are you using a nonstick pan? Are you averse to serving from the pan? Aluminum foil + cooking spray just might do the trick...

          No, not adverse to it- anything is better than going back to the supermarket right now!!
