Some of my favorite meals to make and coincidentally, a few of the most popular recipes here at One Dish Kitchen are our crustless quiche recipes. That’s why I’m so happy to share this Crustless Spinach Quiche For One with you today.

What Is A Crustless Quiche?

A quiche is one of those perfect dishes that’s ideal to enjoy for breakfast, lunch or for dinner. The ingredient list in a crustless quiche is short – eggs, cream and your favorite fillings.

When I set out to scale down my original crustless quiche recipe into a single serving recipe, I discovered that 2 eggs and 3 tablespoons of cream provided the perfect “base” for a quiche and will yield a creamy and delicious custard every time.

It’s wonderful to not have to bother with making a crust. I save so much time by eliminating the pastry step – in fact, it’s hard to go back to making a quiche with crust.

How To Make A Crustless Quiche

Step 1

To begin, you need to first make the quiche “base” by whisking together the eggs and cream.

Step 2

After you’ve got the eggs and cream blended, you can begin to prepare the fillings. For this spinach quiche, sauté onions and garlic in a little olive oil, then add in cubes of salty ham and a handful of fresh spinach.

Tip: Leave out the spinach in this quiche recipe if you would prefer a Ham and Cheese Quiche.

Step 3

Once the spinach begins to wilt, pour it into the egg/cream mixture and stir in shredded Swiss cheese.

Step 4

Bake the quiche in a 5-inch baking dish. I find this baking dish to be the perfect size for anyone cooking for one. The quiche bakes in the oven for a quick 25 minutes.

    I made this today, following your idea, but I used Jimmy Dean cooked turkey sausage crumbles in place of the ham, I had thin sliced swiss cheese so I used that like lasagna noodles and layered it. I used a mini foil bread loaf pan ( I didn’t have anything close to a 5×5 pan) and a sprinkle of cheddar on top. Baked until a toothpick came out clean…Oh my…it was the best breakfast/brunch I had had in months! The mini loaf pan worked perfect. It came out looking like a mini loaf of bread. Next time I want to add green/red pepper, mushrooms, the possibilities are endless. Thank you for the idea and recipe!!

    Now I know what I’m having for dinner when my husband travels for work. I have such a hard time finding meals I like for one!

    Perfect way to use leftover ham. I love making quiche and using it throughout the week as a quick hot breakfast. So yum!

  4. Thank you so much Joanie, I'm so looking forward to keeping in touch with you and your wonderful recipes for one==I just cook for one now that my hubby passed. I did however visit my g'kids in Oregon for Christmas and I cooked and cooked and cooked and loved every minute of it, my daughter is a single mom so she doesn't make homemad things very often. Thank you again for your quick reply. I have been cooking for years and love, love, love to cook—-you would have thought that I could have figured out where the cream came in it. Lame me. Lol! Thanks again!

    I'm loving that you've decided to switch to all recipes for one. And this one is brilliant. If I wanted to prep ahead and freeze a couple, would I freeze before or after baking?

    1. Hi Wanda,

      If you want to freeze the quiche, bake it first. After it bakes and cools down, transfer the quiche to a covered container or freeze it in your baking dish. When you're ready to eat the quiche, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and heat for 5-10 minutes.

  6. Re: Your Quich for One, in the instructions where does the "cream" come in. You don't list that in the instructions. Please advise.
    Thank you,
