CREATE EASY EGG RECIPES THAT THE FAMILY WILL LOVE

 

My easy to make crustless Quiche can be served with any type of salad or as an appetizer for any meal of the day.

To be honest the list is endless as are the ingredients you can add to the egg mixture to customize your own Quiche. That’s the beauty of a Quiche because you can add what you like and take away what you don’t like and it’s pretty simple to do if you have picky eaters in your household.

 

 Cut calories and fat

 

If you don’t fancy using bacon to make a bacon cheese Quiche and want to opt for a low-fat Quiche then you can fill up your egg mixture with loads of vegetables and keep it simple. A popular recipe is a spinach mushroom Quiche which is simply the egg mixture, chopped spinach and fresh mushrooms.

Since I’m not using a crust for this Quiche recipe that also eliminates many of the unwanted calories and fat you might not desire. You can also make mini-crustless Quiche like I did here today or opt for a bigger muffin tin or smaller pie plates or tin designs.

Once you have the basic Quiche recipe like you have here today the sky really is the limit. If you are like me and don’t like to waste food because you know it’s costly to the grocery budget you can clean out your refrigerator using up different veggies and meats like ham, chicken or pork to add to your Quiche recipe.

Crustless Quiche is a versatile dish that be used in many ways and if you do prefer to use a crust all you need to do is prepare the crust and pour the mixture in the pastry and bake it.

We love crustless Quiche in our house and I have made it on many occasions to take to a pot-luck and parties because it’s an easy, frugal recipe and transports well.

 

 Quiche storage

 

These mini crustless Quiches do freeze well and can keep for up to 2 months in the freezer so another reason to make them ahead of time so you aren’t rushing to prep something for a party or for something to eat for the day.  Just remember to cook them right through and test to make sure the egg mixture is springy to the touch.

    This looks yummy, as usual. I might have to up the ingredient list some as I feed 4 adults. The two boys can scarf food at a pretty good clip!!!! Consider yourself warned as yours get older!!!! Would you use the same cooking time if it’s in a pie plate??? I use a recipe for quiche from my SIL and I think it’s in the oven for close to an hour. Twelve minis might work here… 4 for each of the boys, one for hubby and three for me, might just work!!!! I love the fact you can add what ever to it to clean up leftovers!! Always looking for ways to do that around here. Thanks Nicola!!!!!

      Tell me about it ! The food is quick to go into the fridge then it’s out again lol! Yes I would use the same cooking time give or take an extra 5 mins just watch for it rising and if it’s still not done but the top is brown switch the oven off and leave it in there the heat will finish it off

  2. Oh yeah baby! Looks GREAT! I have all the ingredients already, will try tomorrow… hope I don’t burn it!

    • Nicola Don says:

      Nah you won’t burn it lol! It’s super easy using the muffin pans and if you have some extra bacon why not line the outside then pour the egg mixture in! Tell me how it turns out!

  3. Quiche is delicious. It’s one of my favorite breakfast foods and sometimes we make it and freeze it. It does okay for us when thawed. This looks like a great recipe! Thank you for sharing.
