How to Make Crustless Quiche

When Derek and I were first dating I wanted to make him quiche all the time because he lived in France for a could years and I was trying to channel that French vibe for him. While I'm not much of a French chef, this crustless quiche was the first thing I ever cooked for Derek many moons ago, and it's still a family favorite recipe to this day. 

How to Make Crustless Quiche:

To make crustless quiche you will first need to cook any ingredients that will ultimately get mixed into your egg mixture. For this recipe in particular, I cooked my bacon and mushrooms ahead of time, and then they eventually got mixed into the egg mixture with the remaining ingredients. 

Once you've cooked the bacon and mushrooms, you'll need to mix up the remaining ingredients. In a large bowl you will mix together your eggs, sour cream, cheeses, and then your green onions, mushrooms, and bacon. When your batter is ready, it will bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 325º.

What Are Some Common Ingredients Found Inside A Quiche?

There are a lot of different ingredients that you can mix inside of your quiche. Some that you will see most often are:

Can you Make Crustless Quiche Ahead of Time?

Yes! Crustless quiche can be made ahead of time. To do this, simply prepare all of your ingredients together the same way you would make it if you were cooking this recipe the same day. Once you pour your entire batter into your 9x13 baking pan, you can cover it in the fridge with plastic wrap for up to 24 hours before cooking. When you're ready to cook simply pull it out of the fridge and let it sit on the counter while you wait for the oven to heat up. The cook time should not need to be adjusted for this.

How Long to Cook Crustless Quiche?

Crustless quiche will need to be baked in a preheated oven for 30 minutes. It will cook at 325º. The lower heat will ensure that the top of the quiche will not brown or burn too quickly while the rest of the quiche cooks slowly in the oven. You know your quiche is done with the top of the quiche is firm to the touch and a toothpick in the center doesn't have wet egg mixture on it when gently inserted.
