Quick Crustless Quiche

Quick Crustless Quiche (with added spinach!)

I am rather new to the quiche making scene. This is the recipe for the first quiche I've ever made--and it does not require making a pastry crust! *Update* Since originally writing this, I have made this quiche multiple does not disappoint! It also freezes beautifully (freeze before baking and thaw before cooking).

Quick Quiche
Adapted from the recipe found here.

Here's what you'll need, plus mozzarella cheese.
8 slices bacon
4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk

 First, melt your butter and set it aside (this gives it a chance to cool). Then, fry up your 8 slices of bacon (NOT in the butter!). This is the most time-consuming part of this recipe (i.e. this is an easy recipe).

Then finely dice the onion. I like it very fine.

In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, butter, onion, salt, flour, and milk.

 Like so.

And I like to add freshly ground pepper, too.

Then crumble the bacon into your lightly greased pie pan, covering the bottom.
Then add the cheese. I like mozzarella, but the original recipe called for Swiss. The cheese and bacon at the bottom serves as your "crust."

Then gently pour the egg mixture over your "crust." Go slowly so that the bacon and cheese does not mix with the rest and stays on the bottom (but if it mixes, no biggie really).

Then put it in the oven! 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until set.

Mmmmm, lovely. Enjoy this quiche hot out of the oven or chilled. This recipe is versatile, so feel free to add broccoli, sausage, tomato, or ham...or whatever! My recent favorite addition is 5 oz of spinach. 




  1. That looks awesome!! What CAN'T bacon do, you know??

  2. Bacon?! I am so there! If I add broccoli it would negate the negative effects of the bacon - right?!

  3. Oh, yum! This sounds scrumptious! Everything tastes better with bacon, right?! :D

  4. This looks great! If it's crustless, you can have the bacon :)

  5. This looks like a great, easy recipe! Thanks

  6. This looks so yummy. I need some easy "egg" recipes.

  7. OH, this looks awesome! I make a crustless spinach quiche, but I love the addition of bacon. I am putting this on the menu soon!

    Thanks for sharing! I love reading your blog!!

  8. I don't normally eat eggs but that looks amazing.

  9. love the look and sound of this delicious treat

  10. Thank you so much for this recipe! I can't wait to try it!

  11. Do you think this could work in a rice cooker?

  12. Emby, I'm really not sure...the only thing I've ever cooked in my rice cooker is rice and veggies!

  13. We made it last night and it was delicious! 5 oz of spinach was perfect amount. I cooked it in our corningware however and should not have. It took a little over an hour to cook and I was so hungry:) It didn't disappoint though and our two and 1/2 yr old gobbled it up! Thanks for the recipe Alicia!

  14. Oh, Bethany, I'm so glad! :D Thanks for coming back to share. :)

  15. I like to add fresh mushrooms and spinach when I find them on sale. Yum!

  16. I'm here looking up a breakfast casserole/quiche recipe for breakfast tomorrow and decided to check your recipes. Voila, I think I'll try this one! BTW, I noticed your Cutco knife in the onion picture. Cutco is AWE-SOME! I love my knives. :) Have a great weekend!

  17. Just tried this tonight, with a good bit of fresh spinach and bacon. It was WONDERFUL! We ate it at room temperature and even my kids liked it. Thank you:)
