Crustless Ham and Cheese quiche

I created this crustless quiche recipe with leftover Easter ham in mind. Since it’s low-carb and uses no crust, I’ve added a little light cream to give the eggs more of a creamier custard texture, as most quiches have rather than a spongier baked egg texture like a frittata.

Basic Quiche Ingredients:

The beauty of quiche lies in its versatility, and the crustless variant is no exception. You can tailor the dish to your taste preferences or dietary needs by choosing from a wide range of fillings. See full recipe with exact measurements below in the recipe card.

  • eggs
  • milk and half & half
  • grated cheese (choose from options like Swiss, cheddar, mozzarella or feta)
  • your choice of fillings (broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, diced ham, cooked bacon, sausage, onions, bell peppers)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Optional herbs and spices (e.g., nutmeg, thyme, basil)

How To Make Crustless Quiche

  1. Preheat the to 350F degrees. Spray a pie dish or quiche with oil.
  2. Evenly spread the broccoli in the dish and top it evenly with the ham.
  3. Make the custard mixture by whisking together the milk, half and half, eggs, salt, black pepper, and the nutmeg.
  4. Pour the custard into the dish and top with cheese.
  5. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until the center is set.
  6. Cut the quiche into 6 pieces and serve.

Crustless Quiche Variations:

  • Swap the ham for bacon, sausage or vegan sausage.
  • Cheese: Any cheese would work great here. Try this with mozzarella cheese, Gruyere, cheddar or Swiss.
  • Milk: You can swap more milk in place of the half & half cream, but the texture won’t be as creamy, it will have a spongier texture.
  • Individual Ramekins: Make them in individual ramekins in place of one large pie dish.
  • Crust: If you wish to use a crust, follow the directions for this recipe using a deeper pie dish, and use less broccoli.

Storage

Refrigerate for 3 to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven.
