Ham & Mushroom Crustless Quiche
Ham & Mushroom Crustless Quiche

This ham and mushroom crustless quiche is the perfect light breakfast or weeknight dinner for any busy household. When you get rid of the crust, this is a super quick and easy recipe for when you get home from a busy day at work or simply want a minimal hassle nutritious brekkie in the morning. This dish can be served hot or cold so it’s handy to grab when you’re heading out the door too.

I personally love how quickly this recipe comes together and how versatile it is in terms of ingredients. You can really just use whatever leftover veg is in your fridge, which is ideal when you haven’t got time to think let alone cook!

How To Make Ham and Mushroom Crustless Quiche

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Add the mushrooms, onions, and peppers to a large skillet along with a splash of cooking oil.
  • Saute the vegetable until they are all softened. Add in the garlic and fry for two minutes until browned and fragrant.
  • Add in the ham and mix in.
  • Coat a 9-inch pie dish with non-stick spray. Place the ham and vegetable mixture into the bottom of the pie place in an even layer.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, basil, and Parmesan. Add a bit of pepper at this point (I would add the salt later to taste as the ham is salty!)
  • Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and ham in the pie dish. Top with the shredded mozzarella.
  • If wanted, you can place the pie dish on a baking sheet to make moving it in and out of the oven easier.
  • Bake the crustless quiche for 45-55 minutes, until the interior reaches at least 165 F and the top is golden brown (all ovens and times may vary).
  • Cut into six pie slices and serve!

How Healthy Is Ham and Mushroom Quiche?

As there’s no crust, this quiche has a lower carb and calorie count than a regular crusted quiche. It’s a great option if you’re on a low carb diet! Using low-fat mozzarella will make it even more friendly to your waistline. This healthy breakfast, lunchtime, or dinner options is ideal for anyone with who loves all things bacon and is trying to avoid carb-heavy foods. It’s so yummy you’ll wish you tried it years ago!

Just be careful with your portions if you’re watching your weight and this quiche is perfectly healthy! It’s sort of like buying those “low fat” potato chips; you end up scoffing down three bags instead of your usual one just because they’re “low fat” – which defeats the purpose of buying the low-fat packet in the first place!

You Can Get Creative With The Ingredients

Like I said, you can really make this using whatever veg is left over in your fridge. It’s a pretty frugal dish! Some awesome recipe variations include adding jalapenos, Mexican cheeses, and vegs like broccoli and spinach! Get creative and see where it takes you (i.e. straight to amazingly yum in your tum heaven).

  1. Hmmmm…I don’t know how I feel about crustless quiche (I have a problem with the texture, for some reason it’s not my favorite) but I LOVE this filling. Absolutely delicious. I may place it in an almond flour crust, or a simple whole wheat shortcrust, but I’ll definitely be snagging this filling recipe. Thank you!
