This Crustless Quiche is the perfect light breakfast or weeknight dinner for any busy household. When you get rid of the crust, Its a great low carb option  and it is a super quick recipe for when you get home from a busy day at work or simply want quick nutritious brekkie in the morning. This dish can be served hot or cold so it’s handy to grab when you’re heading out the door too.

I love how quickly this recipe comes together and how versatile it is in terms of ingredients. You can really just use whatever leftover vegetables you have in your fridge, which is ideal when you haven’t got time to get groceries.

How To Make Crustless Quiche

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Add the mushrooms and onions to a large skillet along with a splash of cooking oil.
  • Saute the vegetable until they are all softened. Add in the garlic and fry for two minutes until browned and fragrant.
  • Add in the ham and mix in.
  • Coat a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick spray. Place the ham and vegetable mixture into the bottom of the pie place in an even layer.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, basil, and cheddar cheese. Add a bit of pepper at this point (I would add the salt later to taste as the ham is salty!)
  • Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and ham in the pie dish. Top with the shredded mozzarella or parmesan.
  • If wanted, you can place the pie dish on a baking sheet to make moving it in and out of the oven easier.
  • Bake the crustless quiche for 45-55 minutes, until the interior reaches at least 165 F and the top is golden brown (all ovens and times may vary).
  • Cut into six pie slices and serve!Crustless Quiche

This healthy breakfast, lunchtime, or dinner option is ideal for anyone with who loves all things bacon and is trying to avoid carb-heavy foods. It’s so yummy you’ll wish you tried it years ago!
