The key to a great quiche doesn’t lie in the crust but with a delicate, creamy custard. This is what makes wonderful crustless quiche recipes so incredibly delicious!
A quiche can be fancy, yet incredibly easy to make.
Single serving crustless quiche recipes are great recipes to have on hand when you’re looking for low carb meals that are easy to customize.
What Is A Crustless Quiche?
A crustless quiche is a little like an oven baked omelette or a frittata. It’s made with a couple of eggs, a little cream or milk, and then whatever ingredients you like to add in.
There’s no crust involved which makes for an easy meal to prepare.
An interesting thing happens when a crustless quiche is baked in the oven, a sort of “natural” crust forms along the bottom and the sides. This leaves you with the absolute best part of the quiche.
A mini crustless quiche makes a delightful dinner or even a low carb breakfast. They can be low carb, keto friendly and low calorie as well.
In these four single serving crustless quiche recipes, the quiche filling begins with the same two ingredients; eggs and cream.
You can follow the simple directions in the following recipes to create any one of these savory quiche recipes or use the ratio of egg to cream (listed in the recipes) and add your own favorite filling ingredients.
What To Serve With Crustless Quiche
Can You Freeze A Crustless Quiche?
Yes, you can freeze a crustless quiche.
To freeze before baking:
Mix the ingredients together and pour the mixture into a zip-top freezer bag. Thaw the quiche filling in the refrigerator for about 24 hours before baking. Transfer the ingredients to an small oven safe baking dish and bake as the quiche recipe states.
To freeze after baking:
Cook the quiche as directed and allow to cool. Tightly cover with plastic wrap and freeze. When you are ready to reheat the quiche, place the quiche in a 350 degree F oven and heat for 20 minutes.
What Type Of Milk Should I Use In A Crustless Quiche Recipe?
In the quiche recipes above, I recommend using heavy cream (also known as double cream). The cream makes the quiche richer.
You may also use skim, lowfat, or whole milk instead of the cream. Almond milk and soy milk will work well too.
How Long Will A Crustless Quiche Last?
A crustless quiche will last 3 days in the refrigerator.
For these quiche recipes, I use a 5-inch baking dish. For best results, please use a dish of similar size.
