Crustless Quiche: a great way to use leftovers!

Crustless Quiche: a great way to use leftovers!

Crustless Quiche Base:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup grated cheese (cheddar cheese, swiss cheese or mozzarella))
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 + cup optional ingredients (see below)

Optional Ingredients: The original poster of this recipe has this suggestion: “As a general rule I add a combined amount additional ingredients. (Basically 1/3 cup of each to make a total of 1 cup.)” I just loosely fill a 2-cup measure with whatever is in the fridge, including salad – lettuce tastes great in a quiche! Here are some other ideas:

  • 1 cup additional ingredients:
  • cubed ham or crumbled cooked bacon
  • chopped broccoli
  • chopped tomatoes
  • sliced onions or green onions
  • chopped spinach
  • chopped asparagus
  • cooked cubed potato


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the milk, egg, cheese and salt & pepper.
  3. Stir in any additional ingredients.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into a pie dish, and bake uncovered for about 45 minutes. Or until the center is set, and not jiggly.
