One of my favorite meals to make is a crustless quiche. They’re low carb, easy to make, and totally customizable. This crustless spinach quiche is one version I make all the time. It’s cheesy, healthy and absolutely delicious.

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 version, 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.

Crustless Mini Quiche

This mini quiche is a wonderful size if you’re cooking for one. I use a 5-inch x 5-inch baking dish which holds about 2 cups and has an area of 25-inches. A 4-inch by 6-inch dish will work well as would most 5 to 6-inch diameter pans.

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.

Ingredients

See recipe box below for ingredient amounts and full recipe instructions.

  • olive oil
  • chopped onions
  • garlic
  • ham
  • fresh spinach
  • eggs
  • heavy cream
  • salt
  • black pepper

Can I Use Frozen Spinach Instead Of Fresh Spinach?

Yes you can! Just be sure to thaw the spinach completely and drain as much of the liquid out of it as you can.

How To Make A Spinach Crustless Quiche

  1. Make the quiche “base” by whisking together the eggs and cream.
  2. After you’ve got the eggs and cream blended, 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 spinach.
  3. Once the spinach begins to wilt, pour it into the egg/cream mixture and stir in shredded Swiss cheese.
  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!!

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