This crustless quiche recipe is a little extra work, but so worth it!
Crustless Quiche Recipe
A tasty breakfast recipe from The Peaceful Mom!
- 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
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Butter a 10-inch tart pan or 9-inch deep pie plate or 9x9 glass baking dish.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp.
- Drain bacon on paper towels and chop coarsely.
- Remove all but 1 tablespoon of the bacon drippings from skillet.
- Add onion and cook 5 minutes until softened but not brown.
- In a large bowl, combine eggs, cream, broccoli, cheese, salt, and pepper.
- Stir in bacon and onion.
- Pour mixture into prepared pan.
- 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.)
- Cool 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.

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.
I just made it with fresh spinach tonight and it was delish! 🙂
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.
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.
This sounds great!
my only question is whether or not you thaw the spinach out
Yes, if you are using frozen spinach thaw it and squeeze out the extra water. 🙂
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!
I think I could add bacon to anything–heehee. 🙂
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! 🙂
It’s so yummy! 🙂
