Crustless Quiche

The crust of a quiche is the most difficult part for me to make and the most time consuming, so when I saw this recipe I just had to try it out.

Cooking spray
1 1/2 tablespoons fine dry plain bread crumbs
1 cup frozen chopped onions
1 cup diced cooked ham (1/4 pound)
1 (8-ounce) package shredded Swiss cheese (2 cups)
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup whole milk

Preheat oven to 425°F with rack in middle.

Spray quiche dish with cooking spray, then sprinkle all over with bread crumbs.

Spray a skillet with cooking spray and cook onions with ham over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until pale golden, about 5 minutes. Spread in baking dish, then evenly sprinkle cheese on top.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream and milk and pour over cheese. Bake until top is golden and custard is set in center, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cool slightly before cutting into wedges.

We had this with a salad, some strawberries and some homemade biscuits.

Did I change anything? I used more breadcrumbs. I just sprinkled enough to cover the bottom of the pie plate. I also used bacon instead of ham.

What did the family think? Hubby and I really liked it and it made our house smell wonderful. Our boys aren’t huge bacon fans, but our oldest did eat some.

Where did this recipe come from?

  1. They don’t like bacon? I have absolutely no idea what that would be like. Bacon is a food group at Casa Dana.
