Easy and delicious. My first quiche I added broccoli, sautéed onions and bacon. My second I added asparagus, spinach and cilantro. Fantastic flavor.

Crustless Quiche Recipe Tips & Tricks

  • DISH TO USE: This recipe is best baked in a 9-inch pie plate. Sometimes I will also use an 8 × 8 glass baking dish. If I’m doubling the recipe I use a 9 × 13 lasagna pan.
  • EGGS: Use large eggs.
  • CHEESE: Most types of cheese will work for this: mozzarella, cheddar, marble, Monterey Jack, Swiss cheese, or gruyere cheese
  • MILK: You can use 1%, 2%, whole milk, cream, or heavy cream
  • QUICHE FILLINGS: Remember it is a TOTAL of 1 cup of additions.
    • onions: green onions, shallots, purple, red onion or white onion, or even caramelized onions
    • tomatoes: chopped cherry tomatoes or any type of tomato
    • mushrooms
    • Swiss chard or fresh spinach
    • bell pepper
    • cooked potatoes and sweet potato
    • asparagus
    • broccoli
    • cooked ham or Canadian bacon
    • cooked bacon (make sure to use crispy bacon)
    • crumbled cooked sausage (breakfast sausage is great!)
    • a couple tablespoons of Parmesan cheese, feta cheese or goat cheese
  • LEFTOVERS: Store any leftovers in an airtight container (or cover tightly with a layer of plastic wrap) in the refrigerator. After the quiche has been in the fridge you may notice a little bit of excess moisture, just drain it off.
  • FREEZING: You can freeze leftovers. Just place individual slices on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Then put the baking sheet into the freezer and freeze overnight. Once the slices have frozen, transfer them to a ziplock bag and freeze.
  • INDIVIDUAL PORTIONS: If you want to make individual portions into crustless mini quiche, don’t miss my post on how to make Easy Egg Bites in a Muffin Tin!
  • MAKE AHEAD? I do not recommend making this dish ahead of time. It’s best served immediately.

Favourite Flavour Ideas:

  1. Such a fantastic and versatile recipe! I made a couple of these for a holiday brunch (with different add-ins) and both were the rave of the brunch! Very delicious!






  2. Hi, I want to make mini quiches and I saw you’re note directing me to your mini egg bite recipe. I definitely like the more creamy custard texture of this recipe vs the more egg forward taste/texture of the egg bites. Is it possible to use your crustless quiche recipe and make individual ones in a muffin pan, or is there a technical issue I am missing (like they fall apart when I remove them from the pan)?
