Easy to make, low carb Goat Cheese and Prosciutto Crustless Quiche For One! A delicious combination of flavors. This single serving quiche recipe is ideal for anyone cooking for one and is perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
I was first introduced to the idea of a crustless quiche many years ago when I was on the Adkins diet. Spending time on this low carb diet taught me how to create many flavorful meals without the added carbs. Since that time, I’ve been experimenting with various crustless quiche recipe combinations and this delightful Goat Cheese and Prosciutto Crustless Quiche is our most recent addition.
I have made so many crustless quiche dishes for my family over the years and I can honestly tell you that no one has ever missed the crust. When a crustless quiche bakes in the oven it forms sort of a “natural” crust so you don’t need to spend the extra time making a floured crust.
How To Make A Crustless Quiche
Making a single serving crustless quiche is so easy! You just need one bowl for mixing and one dish for baking.
I find that a 5-inch baking dish works best for a quiche this size. You could also use a loaf pan. Use any baking dish of a similar size.
First, whisk together 2 eggs and 4 tablespoons of cream. Add in a pinch of salt, a pinch of black pepper, a touch of garlic powder.
Stir in 1-ounce of chopped prosciutto, 1-ounce of crumbled goat cheese, and 2 tablespoons of chopped green onions.
Pour into the small baking dish and bake for 25 minutes.
Is A Crustless Quiche And A Frittata The Same Thing?
The short answer is, no.
A quiche and a frittata are both egg dishes made with cheese, sometimes meat and often vegetables. They both can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
In a traditional quiche recipe you have a crust, but since a crustless quiche and a frittata do not have crusts, they are quite similar.
In both cases, the ingredients are mixed together and poured into baking dishes. A frittata is usually baked in a cast iron skillet and a crustless quiche is baked in a baking dish.
A quiche has sort of a custard-like base which is a combination of eggs and heavy cream, this gives it a wonderfully creamy consistency when baked. You can cut the fat by adding half and half or milk if you would like.
A frittata is made with very little or no milk. It is usually cooked first on the stovetop, then finished in the oven.
Can You Make A Crustless Quiche Ahead Of Time?
You can mix together the ingredients, pour the mixture into a baking dish and when you’re ready to enjoy your quiche, bake it in the oven.
The mixed ingredients are best if used within 3 days if covered and stored in the refrigerator.
