Many years ago, when I was following the Atkins diet and trying to avoid carbs, I stumbled across a crustless quiche lorraine recipe. After strictly following this high protein, meats and vegetables diet for so long, a cheesy, custard-type meal was exactly what I was craving.

Since that time, I’ve made many crustless quiche recipes and even though I’m not totally avoiding carbs any longer, I still prefer those to the traditional crust versions.

Crustless Quiche

A quiche is basically a custard made with milk or cream and eggs. For this Crustless Quiche Lorraine For One, I use 2 large eggs and 4 tablespoons of heavy cream. This is the amount of eggs and cream I use in each and every one of my crustless quiche recipes. From there, I add different combinations of ingredients I enjoy eating.

If you have leftovers in your fridge, a quiche is a wonderful dish to make to use them up. Add your favorite cheese and protein or vegetables and you can create a fabulous meal.

A quiche is a wonderfully adaptable dish. You can choose the season’s most flavorful vegetables and any variety of cheeses and meats and make a healthy meal that can be assembled in minutes.

How To Make A Crustless Quiche

Ways To Use Leftover Ingredients

    Great recipe & will enjoy playing with leftover veggies to add. Keep an eye on time as I could have probably done 5 less minutes. No matter it was good!

  2. I am so happy I found this website. This week I made the twice baked eggplant, the stroganoff, and tonight the crust less quiche. The quiche came out perfect. Because I have a strict sodium limit, I changed a few things. I did not add the salt, instead I used Costco no salt organic seasoning, penzeys Muriel of flavors along with the nutmeg. In addition, I sautéed a little chopped onion with some mushroom slices and put that in it. I used boars head Lacey Swiss which is only 35 mg for 1oz and I used low sodium bacon from Costco. Baked it the same time and so delicious. Thank you so much for your recipes. They are such a life saver. It

      1. Thank you so much for responding! I have bookmarked your page and will definitely be trying some of your recipes. I think they will work for hubby and me!

      2. That dish is no longer available . I have been looking every where and can’t find that size. Ant other suggestions for what size to use?

        1. Hi Laurie,
          You’re right, I just checked Amazon and they are currently unavailable. Hopefully, the dishes become available soon. The 5-inch baking dish has an area of 25 inches. If you have a 4 inch by 6 inch baking dish, it has an area of 24 inches (4 inches x 6 inches) and should work just fine. Also if you have a 5 – 6 inch diameter baking dish, that should work as well. The baking dish holds about 1.5 cups so I would suggest looking for one that holds between 1.5 and 2 cups.

          I have found these dishes at Target, discount home stores like Home Goods and Marshalls. Also check for gently used small baking dishes at thrift stores.

          Another alternative would be to divide the quiche ingredients between a few small oven safe ramekins and bake as directed.

          Hope this helps.

  4. All the recipes look delicious. Being a vegetarian, I think that I may be able to substitute soy or other for the meat in most. Than ks for this site.

    I love it when you actually find a good new dish while on a restrictive diet! It always feel like a little victory. 🙂 And I know I wouldn’t miss the crust in this! It looks SO good.
