Crustless quiches are one of my favorite meals to make! The lack of a pastry crust is one of the reasons I love to make them. By not making the crust I save lots of prep time, as well as, eliminating quite a few calories, carbs, and fat from the recipe.

This recipe is a fairly typical recipe that I use anytime I make a crustless quiche. You can vary the ingredients based on what's in your refrigerator, just keep the ratio of eggs and cream the same. I happen to love the combination of spinach and brie together, so this was what I decided to make.

The quiche comes together in minutes although I cook it in the oven for a little over an hour. If there are any leftovers, they're always perfect for breakfast.

Why This Recipe Works

  • A crustless quiche is a wonderful low carb meal.
  • They are easily customizable.
  • It's wonderful to not have to bother with making a crust. I save so much time by eliminating the pastry step. If you would like to add a crust to this quiche recipe, I recommend using a frozen, or pre-made pie crust and cutting it to fit the dish.
