Soft and silky classic quiche made without a crust and full of delicious flavors. This crustless quiche is made with fresh spinach, artichoke hearts and lots of cheese.
I can’t believe that mother’s day is this weekend!
Are you ready to celebrate your moms, wives, and other influential women in your life? I hope you have something special planned, but if not, I have a great brunch idea (or breakfast in bed, of course).
I’m in love with this delicious new crustless quiche. Since I don’t have too many breakfast options that are gluten free, I often make myself some eggs for breakfast. It could get quite old having the same old, over medium eggs every morning. On weekends, I like to get a little more creative. One gorgeous weekend morning, I decided to combine the flavors of my favorite spinach artichoke dip with a crustless quiche. It turned out très bon!
As a matter of fact, it turned out SO good, that I made it THREE times in one week. I could not stop eating it. This quiche combines the flavors of a spinach artichoke dip with a fluffy, soft quiche and that combination is just divine.
You can also appreciate the fact that it’s a healthy dish too. It’s crustless and made with fresh spinach. Another way to lower the calories would be to use light sour cream and 2% cheese.
MOST COMMON QUESTIONS:
Can I Make Crustless Quiche Ahead Of Time?
Yes, you can prepare everything up to the actual baking step. Cover the baking pan with plastic wrap and place the pan in the refrigerator. You can bake it the next day. Take the quiche out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking and let it sit on the counter to warm up a bit. Then, preheat the oven and bake as directed.
Does It Reheat Well?
Yes, this quiche is easy to reheat in the microwave, just be careful not to overheat the eggs. Heat it just until warm in the middle.
Can I Freeze Crustless Quiche?
Yes, you can freeze this quiche once baked. You can actually bake it right in an aluminum foil baking dish or carefully take it out of the baking dish to freeze. (If baking in aluminum pan, you can freeze it right in the pan as well.)
Wrap it in foil and make sure it’s pretty air-tight. Place it in a large freezer bag, label, and freeze.
To thaw: slow-thaw it overnight in the refrigerator. You can reheat individual slices in the microwave or reheat the whole thing in the oven at 350° just until heated through. You can loosely cover the quiche with foil on top so it won’t burn.
NOTE: you may notice a texture difference in the quiche after it’s been frozen and thawed. Many egg dishes do change in texture after freezing due to increase in moisture. Most of the time it doesn’t bother people but several have noticed the texture difference.
How Long Does Quiche Last In The Refrigerator?
Make sure to store leftover quiche in the refrigerator covered air-tight. When properly stored, it should last 3-4 days.
Can I Substitute Cream In Quiche?
Yes, you can use whole milk but the texture won’t be as smooth and creamy.
Can I Use Frozen Spinach?
Yes you can, just make sure to squeeze the juices out. Note: 6 oz of fresh spinach will equate to about 2-3 oz frozen spinach.

I have made this numerous times – today with just zucchini, carrots, shredded cheddar blend & parm, has to use Greek yogurt as I had no sour cream. Can’t wait to taste it! Such a versatile recipe!!
Hi, Ethel! I bet it tasted amazing, I am so glad you like my recipe! 🙂
I love this recipe! It is a keeper for me. I have like it with arugala also, its really good also!
Dorthea Maslo says
I made it this morning and added feta cheese. Pour into cupcake pan line with cupcake liners. Hope it comes out. Thank you for the recipe.
Hi, Dorthea! That sounds so good! Glad you liked the recipe! 🙂
I always have 2% milk and sour cream on hand, but not cream. Would milk work just as well?
Yes, You can it will be a little less creamy but still good!
Thank you. I’m making it for dinner tonight.
I hope you liked them!

Hello, I am making the quiche for the fourth time in the last six weeks. It is easy, delicious and it reheats well.
Awesome! I am so happy you like it so much!
Very good – my husband thoroughly enjoyed
I am so glad he liked it! Thanks for stopping by to let me know! 🙂
This was easy and delicious!! Added a touch of shredded parmesan with the mozzarella on top! No leftovers at brunch…may have to make 2 next time!!
I am so happy you liked it so much! Thank you so much for stopping by to let me know! 🙂
I made this for Father’s Day, and everyone fell in love with it! It is now going to be a much asked-for dish at gatherings. It was so easy to make, and a perfect dish for those who are watching their carbs.
Great recipe. Was fluffy and very tasty. Used cheddar and some mozzarella cheese and baby spinach. Will definitely be making it again it’s 5 star!,
Thank you, Nancy! I am so happy you liked it!
I am so glad you liked it, Nancy!
This has become my “go to” quiche recipe. I love the star players-spinach and artichoke! I try to eat low-carb 90% of the time (gotta leave some room for cheat meals or you can’t maintain). This fits the bill!
It comes together very quickly and turns out creamy, fluffy and oh so yummy! It can stand on it’s own without needing a crust. Thanks so much for a simple, perfect-every-time recipe I can count on.
I love it when I can depend on a recipe to turn out just right every time I make it. Perfection!
Thank you for the sweet comment, I am so glad you liked it!
Rebecca Pederson says
This is my favorite keto meal so yummy! To add some more flavor I added fresh chopped rosemary and it was fantastic!
That is so good to hear! I am so glad you like it, Rebecca!
This is one of my favorites crustless quiches to make. I have made this about 6 times and sometimes change it by adding mushrooms if I do not have artichokes. I made this to bring to parties and it is always a hit! Thank you!
I bet it is tasty with mushrooms, I will have to try that! Thanks for stopping by, Gail!
Made this dish as written and it was fantastic. Very easy to put together. I wouldn’t change as thing
Definitely a keeper
Thank you, Leeann!
This is fantastic! I make one every week but actually would like to eventually make several to freeze for a quick running out the door meal. The only adjustment i made is Italian shredded cheese instead of mozzarella plus a little Asiago!! Yum!! I’m in love! ❤️
Aw, thank you, Doreen! I am so pleased you liked it!
Pauline Morris says
We made this for dinner tonight………….AWESOME!!! Thank you, JACK & POLLY
Yay! So glad you both liked it!
looks fabulous. I have a question. do you use a regular pie plate or deep dish? thanks in advance. am thinking of making it for a brunch I have to attend this Sunday.
I used a deep-dish pie pan for this quiche.
Laura Restrepo says
Great “as is” and so versatile with lots of other veggie combos! Has anyone tried it out using a pie crust? Thanks!
Dana H says
This quiche is amazing. I add some sautéed onions to the spinach and artichokes, and the added flavor and texture is really good. Easy to make and fantastic to eat for breakfast, brunch, or dinner.
So glad you liked it and were able to make it your own!
Very moist, used coconut sugar with 1/2 brown sugar to make a cup! My family loved it!
I am so glad you liked it, Victoria!
The only quiche recipe I use. Why was I making it with a crust all these years? The children (6 and 10) ask for this meal frequently. Ham zucchini and mushrooms tonight, this is so versatile! Thank you for sharing
