Oma's Crustless Spinach Quiche

➤ by Oma Gerhild Fulson

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 quiche 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.

For the full list of ingredients & detailed instructions, see the recipe card at the end of this post. But before you scroll, there’s important & interesting stuff to know right below.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

This crustless quiche recipe makes 6 servings, each having only about 2.5 carbs. Not bad for a filling breakfast or brunch. (Low calorie, it is NOT!)

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.

Oma says,

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.

I love making a double recipe in order to freeze portions and have some extra quick breakfasts!

It's just an assembly line method to prepare. So quick and easy. When it's time to serve the frozen ones, 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.
