Crustless Spinach Quiche

Crustless Spinach Quiche

This crustless spinach quiche is PERFECT if you're needing some low carb breakfast recipes that will satisfy everyone. If you don't think this is German, then read on ... You might think that quiche is a classic French dish. Actually it originated in the Franconian region of Germany (near the French border). It was called "Küeche" ("Kuchen" is German for "cake") and that became "Quiche" in French.

This crustless quiche recipe makes 6 servings, each having about 2.5 carbs. Not bad for a filling breakfast or brunch.

Crustless Spinach Quiche


  • 5 eggs
  • 300 g. package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1/4 cup 10% cream
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon (optional)
  • freshly ground pepper
  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Beat eggs with cream in a large bowl.
  • Add well drained spinach, green onions, 1 cup cheddar cheese, feta cheese, and bacon (if using). Season with some freshly ground pepper.
  • Pour into greased 9-inch casserole or deep pie plate. Smooth top and sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheddar cheese.
  • Bake until centre is set when knife tip is inserted and top is golden brown, about 45 minutes.
  • Let cool slightly before serving.
  • Makes 6 servings.
  • Add 1/4 cup chopped dill and/or parsley
  • Add 1/4 cup chopped ham
  • I've used a 500 g. package of frozen spinach and didn't change any of the other quantities. It worked fine as well. Very spinach-y and delicious.

I love using a fancy 9-inch ovenware dish for serving this wonderful spinach cheese quiche, especially when I have guests over.

It's such an easy dish to prepare and pop in the oven, giving me time to do other things, such as chatting together over a cup of coffee.

Whether you're looking for some recipes with spinach or some low carb breakfast recipes, you'll find this one a good one to keep in mind.

Low Carb Spinach QuicheMade a double recipe in order to freeze portions and have some extra quick breakfasts! Just microwave and enjoy!

I love having recipes in my files that satisfy the different needs of my family and/or guests. Low carb recipes are always good to have available. I suppose you could decrease the cream to a 5% and the cheese to a low-fat one to decrease the calorie count. Haven't tried that yet, but calories aren't an issue with low-carbers. 

If you're doing a low-carb 'diet', leftovers of this dish make great quick breakfasts to have available. Either eat cold or reheat in the microwave. Makes that 'getting up and out of the house' quick and easy.
