This easy Crustless Quiche Lorraine with bacon and Gruyere is a lighter take on the classic, made lighter without the crust.

Crustless Quiche Lorraine

I love making crustless quiche for weekend brunches. They are so simple to make. Plus, since there’s no crust, not only is it healthier, but it’s also quicker to prepare. You can mix all the ingredients the night before so it’s ready to bake when you wake up. This Quiche Lorraine is made with Bacon and Gruyere, but you can also try my Ham and Cheese Crustless Quiche, Broccoli and Cheese Crustless Quiche, or if you want the crust this Spinach Ricotta Tomato Quiche is delicious.

Can I use milk instead of cream in a quiche?

Yes, you can use milk instead of cream in a quiche to lighten it up, but I like to do a mixture of both for a silkier texture. In this recipe, I use 2/3 cup 2% milk and just ¼ cup half and half.
