Crustless Broccoli Quiche With Bacon

bacon broccoli quiche

I’ll admit, I use a lot of eggs in my recipes! I use them in my healthy butter pecan ice cream, sous vide egg bites, and even stuffed acorn squash boats. When they’re from a good source, eggs pack a lot of nutrients into a small package. They’re a great source of proteins, healthy fats, iron, and several vitamins and minerals. So I’m pretty excited to share this grain-free and gluten-free bacon broccoli quiche recipe with you.

Broccoli Bacon Quiche with Cheddar and Onions

For this quiche I decided to go with the classic combo of broccoli and bacon. I cooked the bacon, broccoli, and onion all in the same pan (saves on time and dishes!). In another bowl I whisked together the eggs, dairy, shredded cheese, and seasonings. Then I just poured it over the top of the broccoli mixture and baked it until it was done. The end result was delicious!

Feel free to use leftover already cooked broccoli from another meal if you have it. Just skip cooking it with the bacon and mix it in after the bacon and onions are done.

You can eat the finished quiche warm, or chill it and eat it later cold. It’s one of those awesome dishes that works for every meal. Eat it with fruit for breakfast, or add a side salad and have it for lunch or dinner.

Why Crustless Quiche?

We don’t eat a lot of grains in our house, so I decided to make this quiche a crustless one. I played around with the idea of making a gluten-free crust, but in the end I decided, why bother? This crustless quiche holds together really well and still has the silky smooth texture of a quiche, without the added step of making and baking a crust.

Lunch To-Go

Recipes that can be made into easy portable lunches are always a win with me. Divide the quiche ingredients between small ramekins or the wells of a muffin tin before baking for individually portioned lunches. Then just grab one and maybe a mason jar salad and you have lunch to go.

If you’re baking the quiche in smaller containers, just make sure you reduce the baking time to adjust for the reduced volume. When the quiches are finished baking they will have a slight wiggle to them. When you poke the center with a butter knife, it should come out clean.
