Crustless Spinach Quiche

I am huge fan of quiches and just love creating new and inventive ways to make them. The possibilities are endless. One of my favorite versions, is this crustless spinach quiche. There is no need to make (or buy) the crust, so this particular recipe is really simple to whip up.


  • 8 Large Eggs, beaten
  • 1 Package of Thawed and Drained Chopped Frozen Spinach (10 ounces)
  • ½ Large Onion, Chopped into Small Pieces
  • 2 Cups of Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ½ to 1 Tablespoon of Oil

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet and add the onions.
  3. Continue to stir the onions until they start becoming slightly translucent
  4. Add the thawed (and drained) spinach and sauté until cooked.
  5. If needed, drain any excess moisture from the cooked onion and spinach, then set aside.
  6. Combine the beaten eggs, cheese, salt, and pepper into a large bowl
  7. Stir in the cooked onion and spinach to combine.
  8. Pour the entire mixture into a greased 9 inch pie pan
  9. Bake for about 30 minutes. The eggs should be set and there will be a little browning on top.

Note: Is it very important to drain the spinach as much as possible to avoid a mushy mess in your quiche.

Spinach, Cheese, Quiche, Easy Recipe, Delicious

This dish is almost effortless, and serves wonderfully for any breakfast, brunch, or even dinner!

Love Quiche but not a fan of the crust... I usually just  throw some bread crumbs down on the bottom... This looks great.  Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday.

 I feel the same way about crust. I mean it's okay, but I prefer it without. Thank you for stopping by.

I've made something very similar to this, instead using pan-wilted spinach with sauteed fresh garlic, patted afterward to dry it a bit, and then crumbled bacon added. It was tasty and the family loved it.

Kelly (Our Everyday Harvest) said...

Sounds yummy, CJ! I may have to try that one day. Thanks for sharing!

If you want to try a great one that even the men love, look up the recipe for the Rochester Quiche and then make it as a crustless. They like it so much we started making it in silicone muffin cups. Half the resulting mini-quiches goes in the freezer, the other half goes in the fridge and is portioned out in lunches.

I just looked it up and wow! It does looks really good...I love mushrooms and blue cheese! Thank you for sharing. I'm such a fan of making extra to freeze for later. We do this with our homemade pancakes, waffles, etc.
