One of the things I love most about quiche is that it’s perfect for any meal. It’s perfect for breakfast, brunch or lunch. For a great supper, simply add a crisp green salad or a simple soup. Quiche can be made with almost anything you have on hand and it freezes and reheats beautifully.
This hearty Crustless Quiche with Sausage, Bacon and Ham is perfect for meat lovers! You’ll love how easy and delicious it is!
It’s important to cook meat and vegetables before placing them in a quiche. Most vegetables have a fair amount of water in them and if not cooked first, that water will be released when baking which ends up at the bottom of the baking dish. If you’re making a quiche with a crust, it’s going to be soggy.
You’ll be able to whip up any quiche–crustless or otherwise–in any size baking dish by remembering a simple formula: Use 1 egg to every half-cup of liquid (such as half-and-half or milk) for the custard.
You may have looked at this recipe and thought… Aaagh the fat content! There are ways to change that.
- Reduce the fat content by using turkey sausage and turkey bacon
- Use less cheese or 2% cheese
- Use two egg whites for every egg and use milk with lower fat content.
- You could also add spinach or broccoli to make it better for you!
I’m also a big believer in portion control! One piece of quiche good…. half the quiche not so good!
