Simple Crustless Quiche

Do you ever look in the pantry and refrigerator and, though there is plenty of food, think there is nothing to make for dinner? That's the boat I was in yesterday. Beef, chicken, pasta...none of it sounded good.  It was definitely a night to shake things up a bit. I pulled out this recipe for Simple Crustless Quiche from my SIL and bravely presented it to my family. I have always enjoyed this quiche when Donna has served it and was excited to finally make it on my own.
Here's what you need: eggs, milk or half and half, vegetables, grated swiss cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder(or garlic salt), nutmeg, salt and pepper, butter(or Pam) to grease your dish
Lightly grease an 8x8 pan with cooking spray. Start by layering chopped vegetable in the bottom. I used a combination of fresh spinach, red/yellow/orange peppers, and onions. You can also just use a  package of frozen chopped spinach (thawed and drained).
Layer swiss cheese over the vegetables. ( I added a little colby jack cheese to the quiche too.)
In mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder and nutmeg.
Pour egg mixture over the layered veggies and cheese. (I also sprinkled on some real bacon bits.)
Bake for 30 minutes in 350 degree oven.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle on some Parmesan cheese. Return to oven to cook for 15-20 minutes until done.
Simple Crustless Quiche
{Can be assembled the night before}

Butter to grease the pan or just use spray oil
1 1/2 cups whole milk, half and half or cream(depending on how health conscious you are feeling)
2 cups chopped vegetables
1 pinch nutmeg and garlic powder
1 cup grated swiss cheese
6 eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top for last 15 minutes

Spray 8x8 pan with cooking spray or use butter to grease the pan. Layer vegetables then swiss cheese. Lightly beat together the eggs, milk and spices. Pour over the vegetables and cheese layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and return to oven for 15 to 20 minutes, until eggs are cooked through.

This yummy egg dish did not disappoint. What I love is that you can add whatever vegetables and cheese your family likes or whatever you have in your fridge. I can think of a dozen vegetable/cheese combinations that would be delicious in this dish. What are your favorite ingredients in quiche?

  29. I love me some quiche! But I think that any time that it's made without a crust it's called a frittatta! There is just something so satisfying about how easy these are to make and how delicious they are. ;)

    I'd love it if you would share this on my Friday link-up party!!
