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.

are the artichokes in water or marinated? I made this with the ones in water. wondering if I should have used marinated
Can I make these in a muffin tin? If so how long should I cook them?
Personally, I have a hard time with egg muffins, the texture usually doesn’t come out as good as a whole quiche. But yes, you can try it by filling each cup 2/3 of the way and cooking it for 15-17 minutes.
Perfect quiche. This is better than even Stouffer’s souflet. Congrats on the recipe
Thank you for your kind comment! I am so glad you liked the recipe!
Delicious!!! Best quiche I’ve made. I replaced some of the mozzarella with goat cheese. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe!
Mmm goat cheese! I bet that was really good! I am glad you liked it, Alice!
I just made this recipe as I’m attempting to get back into keto after a month of eating Pasta abroad. It is perfect and delicious. I have become obsessed with Artichokes so this was perfect for me. Thank you for sharing! =)
I am so glad you liked it, Mari!
Can you use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of Heavy Whipping Cream? I need to make some substitutes for health reasons?
This is delicious and I make it all the time. It takes less than 10 minutes to put together and then it goes in the oven. It’s a very good recipe and everyone I’ve made it for loves it.
So yummy! I will make this again!
GLad you liked it, Alyssa!
This was delicious! I was out of cream so I used lactose-free milk and added some chopped onions. The whole family loved it. Will definitely make again.
I am glad it turned out well for you!
Love this recipe. Great for my vegetarian and gluten free friends. Have made numerous times.
This looks delicious. Do you think it would work using Gruyère cheese instead?

Absolutely scrumptious! As written, I cooked it to the “T” with cheating by adding 1/2 tsp of dried rosemary. I am going to experiment with different add-ins. I have already purchased small containers of heavy whipping cream for future quiches. Thank you for your hard in concocting these delicious recipes. I’ve baked other quiches with fried onions and although we’re very good, this quiche presented itself with fresh, clean eating. 😍

Can this filling be poured into a pie crust ?
Sure, you can pour this into a prebaked pie crust.
