Crustless Quiche

Good day friends!

Right now, as I write this I’m sitting in Phoenix, AZ.  The days are hot, the nights are cool…it’s gorgeous here.  But I do have to admit that I’m missing home.  I’m missing the heavy snowfall warnings, and crunchy cold snow under my feet.  Call me crazy, but I miss it…now ask me about that in March and I’ll tell you something different.  But this time of year, snow & cold is the best…it’s so festive and gets me in the mood for Christmas.  Yes, my mind is drifting off to Christmas.  I can’t wait to get home and drag out my decorations, bake some cookies and get planning for the season!

The first planning I do is for get togethers we like to host, and of course the big day!  This means appetizer and meal planning and grocery planning. So when I made this crustless quiche a while back, I couldn’t help but think how perfect it would be on the Christmas morning menu.  Just spend about 15 minutes doing some prep work, then pop it the oven, and about 45 minutes later breakfast is served!  You can even prep it the night before, then pop it in the oven while you are opening gifts.  Serve it up with some easy peasy cinnamon buns, and you’ve got the best breakfast ever!

I love these kinds of recipes too because they are so versatile.  Basically just add ingredients you have around:  use leftover ham, or cubed cooked potato, spinach, tomatoes…you name it.  Anyway, here it is…crustless quiche..a knock off of the frittata.  It’s a crustless quiche?  It’s a frittata?  Whatevs.  It’s delicious.  Yes.

Ingredients
Crustless Quiche Base:
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup cheese, grated (cheddar cheese, swiss cheese or mozzarella)
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup optional ingredients (see below)
Optional Ingredients:
  • As a general rule, I add a combined amount of 1 cup of 3 additional ingredients. (Basically ⅓ cup of each to make a total of 1 cup.) Here are some ideas:
  • cubed ham or crumbled cooked bacon
  • chopped broccoli
  • chopped tomatoes
  • sliced onions, or green onions
  • chopped spinach
  • chopped asparagus
  • cooked cubed potato
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together all the ingredients.
  3. Pour the egg mixture into an pie dish, and bake uncovered for about 45 minutes. Or until the centre is set, and not jiggly.

 Have a delicious day!

  1. Make ahead dishes on Christmas morning are perfect! Enjoy the rest of your time in Phoenix!

  2. ‘Round these parts, we call that an egg casserole — and it looks absolutely delicious. I am still trying to figure out exactly what our Christmas plans are, but if I have any say over it, I’ll have an egg dish a lot like that one and some homemade cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning!

  3. Added to my Must Make list. I have all of the ingredients on hand. This sounds like the perfect breakfast option.

  4. Lucky you in Arizona! Hope you’re having a lovely time away from the cold!

    This quiche looks lovely! I’m a bit fan of these – with or without crust!

  5. Hi Jo-Anna…. I wanted to tell you how much I love your recipe ideas, I have tried several of them. They are very tasty! I am originally from Brazil so I struggle to find healthy but tasty recipes. I can’t wait to try this one! Hugs :) Silvia

    • Thank you so much Silvia! It makes me so happy to hear that people try and enjoy my recipes…it’s really the best feeling! Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know!

  6. I made this for the husband and toddler to eat for breakfast this week and it’s a hit. I loathe rolling out pie crusts, so this was perfect. I also included it in my post on my blog, http://noms4nio.wordpress.com/

  7. I love this simple recipe! I have used this recipe twice for my family, once was for a Sunday morning breakfast and the other time was for a “breakfast for dinner” meal. I like to add zucchini when I make it.

  8. This crustless quiche sounds delicious. One question, can this quiche be cooked on the stove or in the microwave, instead of the oven?
