Avoid a stressful morning (and satisfy hungry house guests) with one of these simple recipes, most of which only take 15 to 30 minutes to prepare.
If it sounds crust-free, we feel you, but we promise that you won't miss the crust – the vegetables, the spices and the cheese more than make up for it. Did we mention that omitting the crust makes cooking these quiches easier? Sounds like heaven to us.
1. Mixed crustless quiche
The brighter the breakfast, the better. Zucchini, pumpkin and orange peppers take this quiche to the next level and give you the feeling that summer has come early.
Add garlic, thyme and parmesan if you want to improve the taste.
2. Quiche made from caramelized onions, mushrooms and kale without crust
If you are looking for more ways to eat mushrooms and kale, this recipe is an easy option. When the vegetables are combined with creamy eggs and the sweet taste of boiled onions and raisins, you may not even notice that they are there.
Did we mention that the onions are caramelized in butter? We are sold.
3. Instant Pot Kuku Sabzi (Persian herb quiche)
Great news for all instant pot lovers: Now you can pour the ingredients into a baking dish, click on the "pressure cooker" button and come out with a beautiful crustless quiche. (What can't the instant pot do ?)
This traditional dish serves to mark the beginning of spring and to celebrate the Persian New Year. Serve hot or cold with lavash, yoghurt, cucumber and radishes, so that a colorful "spring has sprung up!"
4. Parmesan quiche without crust
We love this quiche recipe because it can be easily adapted to the taste of your guests and to all ingredients in the refrigerator.
Eggs, milk and your favorite cheese as well as a cup of whisked toppings ̵
5. Pressure cooker egg bites
If you have a pressure cooker ready, all you need is a silicone mold. This recipe contains all cheeses: cottage cheese, soft cheese (like cream cheese or brie) and grated cheese (like cheddar, monterey jack or mozzarella).
Simply combine the ingredients, pour them into the mold, start the pressure cooker and enjoy the heavenly aroma that blows through your house. When the time runs out, you have a lot of adorable crustless egg bites ready.
Pro tip: If you have two silicone molds, you can stack them in the pressure cooker (with a piece of parchment paper in between) and keep the second batch of boiled egg bites in the freezer.
6. Crustless Spinach Cheddar Quiche
We're always looking for ways to add more green to our meals, and this quiche puts spinach in the spotlight. Eggs, cheddar cheese and the leafy green combine to create a simple but filling breakfast with champions.
Pro tip: Be sure to drain the spinach before adding it to the eggs. Otherwise, the excess water will make your quiche liquid.
7. Crustless Quiche Lorraine
Your family will love this quiche, which basically tastes like a healthy variant of an Egg McMuffin.
It contains the classic combination of bacon, egg and cheese and uses a mixture of whole eggs and egg white for a lighter version. Swap cream for your favorite milk to make it even better for you.
8. Mini Criches Without Crust
Throw away the serving plate and cook these mini quiches instead. The ultimate take-away breakfast. It is perfect for busy morning hours to feed your whole family or to enjoy a lot with a homemade brunch.
You can change the flavors and half of the batch is vegetarian and the other half is meaty, with bacon, ham or turkey sausage. Put cheese on both sides because … cheese.
9. Crustless quiche made from avocado and bacon
With crispy pieces of bacon and creamy avocado inside, this crustless quiche is reminiscent of a club sandwich.
When you add mozzarella, you get an ooey-gooey breakfast that practically melts in your mouth. Save space – you want seconds.
10. Quiche without mushroom and pancetta crust
For a salty, hearty breakfast you can't go wrong with this combination of cremini mushroom and pancetta.
Add thyme, parsley, and peppers to freshen it up and give it a light kick. Olive oil and a mixture of whole eggs and egg whites brighten the dish. And because it doesn't use cheese, milk, or cream, your dairy-free friends will be happy.
11. Crustless crab quiche of the pressure cooker
This light and fluffy quiche can be a great snack of its own or a fine meal when combined with a side salad. It will take a little longer than other recipes on this list, but it will all be worth it (we promise).
The nice thing about this dish is that crabs go well with different flavors. You can replace the Parmesan with goat cheese or feta, exchange broccoli for spring onions, or use Italian herbs instead of Provence herbs.
Pro tip: To make it keto-friendly, replace the imitated crab meat with real crabs – the imitation material contains more carbohydrates.
These crustless quiches are somewhere between classic quiche and frittata. A great way to get involved with everything you want to eat (or whatever vegetables are supposed to be bad).
The eggs seamlessly hold everything together in every simple, portable breakfast. When you know it tastes so good, you don't have to skip the most important meal of the day.
