Crustless Quiche

Quiche, a classic dish. This crustless quiche can be served for breakfast with fruit and toast and is equally as perfect with a light salad and a baguette for dinner. Talk about a perfect go to meal! This quiche is low fat, full of protein and veggies, gluten free, and super easy to make! Making a crustless quiche saves time and calories which is just perfect for me!

I love quiche. Classic quiche is served over a buttery pie crust, that can take quite a while to make by hand. Even if you buy store bought dough, you have to find the perfect balance between the crust baking so it’s tender and flakey but not burning the edges when you are cooking the quiche through. Needless to say, I haven’t always been successful in this balance, so I started making crustless quiche and I just love it! An added bonus, you don’t have to worry about the crust getting soggy if you make this ahead of time.

I almost always suggest a quiche when I hear people are having company, since you can make it ahead of time and it’s absolutely perfect at room temperature. There are so many ways to enjoy quiche, some people like to add ham or bacon while others, like myself like to keep it full of veggies and some yummy cheese! I’m a big fan of using what you have on hand when making dishes like this!

Crustless Quiche Spotlight

They don’t call them the incredible edible egg for nothing! Eggs are a powerhouse of protein and healthy fat! I remember learning in college that the egg was the standard in which other proteins were measured. Each egg has 6 grams of protein,  77 calories, 5 grams of fat.

Eggs are also full of vitamins and minerals! Vitamin A, B5, B12, B2, B6, D, E, K,  Folate, Phosphorus, Selenium, Calcium and Zinc. Eggs are also a great source of choline, which helps build cell membranes in the body. Whoa, told you they were incredible!

Even though eggs contain cholesterol, it’s been shown that eggs actually raise the HDL – High Density Lipoprotein which are the healthy kind of cholesterol. I always remember this as “H” for Healthy! So you don’t have to be as concerned about eating eggs as it was once thought!

Crustless Quiche Recipe Tips

Be sure to chop (affiliate link) your veggies up small for this, you don’t want a huge chunk of veggies in your quiche.

Precook and season all your veggies, so that they have the best flavor and add to the dish.

If you are making mini quiches in muffin tins, I highly recommend using parchment paper liners or silicone liners (affiliate link). I have had such a great experience with the eggs not sticking to either of these. I have never had any luck trying to get the mini quiches out of the muffin tin without a liner.

I also suggest using a measuring cup with a spout if you’re making the mini quiches so it’s easier to pour into each muffin liner and you don’t get it everywhere… not that I did that or anything.

Make more than you think you need! Quiche is great the next day as well! Take it to work for a quick breakfast or add a small salad and you have the perfect light lunch!

What a great idea! I love quiche, but my hubby thinks "soggy" crust. I've made lots of other things, pumpkin pie, lemon pie, without a crust but had not thought about crustless quiche. Thanks for sharing!
