Crustless Quiche Recipe

Serving Size: Serves 8 (I double the recipe so we have leftovers

A tasty breakfast recipe from The Peaceful Mom!

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon (preferably nitrate free)
  • 1/2 yellow onion chopped
  • 6 eggs
  • 3/4 c heavy cream
  • 1 box (10 oz. ) frozen chopped broccoli or spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
  • 1/2 pound swiss cheese, shredded (Gruyere is the best, but more expensive)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter a 10-inch tart pan or 9-inch deep pie plate or 9x9 glass baking dish.
  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp.
  4. Drain bacon on paper towels and chop coarsely.
  5. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings from skillet.
  6. Add onion and cook 5 minutes until softened but not brown.
  7. In a large bowl, combine eggs, cream, broccoli, cheese, salt, and pepper.
  8. Stir in bacon and onion.
  9. Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  10. Bake 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Watch carefully toward the end as oven temperatures vary. (You can tent the pie with foil to prevent over-browning.)
  11. Cool 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.

    Thanks Kimberlee. I’m going to try this one!

      It’s yummy!

    Love quiche, but I’ve never actually made it because I never have Swiss cheese. I think it’s about time to put it on my list though! :)

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      It’s so yummy! :)

    I make nearly the same thing (made it last week in fact!) but have never added bacon before. I suddenly feel like I’ve been missing out!

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      I think I could add bacon to anything–heehee. :)

  • Lydia

    My biggest problem is def. my desk! Always a struggle to keep it organized.

    Do you know if you could freeze this? I would love to serve something like this at the “Morning After Our Daughter Gets Married” brunch. I won’t have time to be in the kitchen.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      I have not frozen it. I would definitely try freezing and thawing it before you plan to serve it. Sorry I can’t help more.

    Crustless quiche is so easy to make. It’s a great way to make it gluten free. This sounds like a great combination of ingredients.

      Thanks Linda!

  • Heather

    This sounds great!

    my only question is whether or not you thaw the spinach out

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      Yes, if you are using frozen spinach thaw it and squeeze out the extra water. :)

  • Barbara

    This sounds good. I think I’m going to try it with fresh spinach. I started using fresh spinach with that “spinach dip” everyone makes with that soup mix. I always felt I squeezed some of the spinach out when I thawed the frozen stuff.

    • http://thepeacefulmom.com Kimberlee

      I just made it with fresh spinach tonight and it was delish! :)
