Easy, delicious and low in carbs, this Spinach, Tomato and Brie Crustless Quiche comes together in quickly and bakes in the oven for about an hour. A slice of Spinach, Tomato and Brie Crustless Quiche on a plate

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, but the biggest reason of all is that I’ve just eliminated quite a few calories, carbs, and fat from the recipe.  In truth, this crustless quiche does seem to have a bit its own crust.  When the quiche bakes, a light, slightly crispy bottom forms so there’s some stability when sliced.

This recipe is a fairly typical recipe 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 milk 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.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

4 cups fresh spinach, loosely packed

6 eggs

3/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 teaspoon ginger

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 pound wedge of brie, rind peeled and sliced

5 or 6 thin slices of a tomato

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Butter a 9-inch deep dish pie plate or a 10-inch quiche/tart pan

In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the onions in a little bit of oil (I use olive oil) for 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  Add in the spinach, a little bit at a time, stirring until wilted.  Remove from the heat and set aside.
