Crustless Quiche Recipe
Quiche is the perfect way to make ordinary eggs taste and look extra special. I love that you can add just about any meat, vegetable or cheese to a quiche and it’ll come out tasting great.
In most quiche recipes, like my Ham and Cheese Quiche, a mixture of beaten eggs and cream are baked in a flaky pastry crust. Then you slice up the quiche like a pie and eat it with a knife and fork.
It’s delicious but takes more time and effort than most of us have to spare at 7 A.M. on a school day.
This no-crust School Morning Quiche recipe was designed with exactly those hectic weekdays in mind.
- Baked in a muffin tin for perfect individual quiches.
- Easy to serve and eat on-the-go!
- Full of cheesy, bacon flavor.
- Gluten free and packed with protein.
- Freezer friendly!
Eggs – The base of any quiche. You will use both the yolks and whites in this recipe.
Cheese – We use both shredded cheddar and Parmesan cheeses for a rich, tangy flavor.
Heavy cream – Beating the eggs with heavy cream creates a light and fluffy quiche consistency
Bacon – Any kind of bacon, even turkey bacon, will taste good in this crustless quiche. Make sure to cook and crumble the meat before adding it to the egg mixture.
Seasonings – Use a little garlic powder and dried parsley, along with your salt and pepper, to season this quiche.
Tips and Tricks
School Morning Quiche takes just 5 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes to bake. It’s as easy as combining all the ingredients, then dividing the mixture into the wells of a greased muffin tin.
As written, this recipe makes about 20 quiches. You can easily double it to have leftovers for freezing!
- How to freeze: Transfer cooled quiches to freezer bags, seal and place them in the freezer. Thaw and reheat frozen quiche before eating.
- How to reheat: Place a frozen mini quiche on a microwave safe plate. Cover it loosely with a paper towel and heat for 2-3 minutes or until thawed and warmed through.
- Serving: Serve these crustless quiches on their own or with a side of fruit for a satisfying breakfast that won’t weigh you down.
Our School Morning Quiche will keep well in the freezer for about 3 months.
Absolutely! For a vegetarian version, leave out the bacon and add 1/2 cup of chopped vegetables to the quiche filling instead.
We think almost every vegetable tastes delicious in this crustless quiche recipe. Spinach, mushrooms, tomatoes, onions and peppers are just a few favorites.

I do have time to make the kids breakfast, but one insists on cereal and the other is back to toast, much to my distress, however, made these this morning and the older one surprised me by taking 2 to school!! Wrapped in foil, they might still be warm… have frozen the rest and hope they’ll try when they get home from school. I love quiche, but girls no so keen. Hubby and my favourite at the mo is rocket parmesan and eggs, plus pastry. But can’t go past bacon egg and cheese (Lorraine) as it brings back many family picnic memories.
Thanks lovely pic and great inspiration!
Yum! I just made a double batch of these- broccoli cheddar and spinach mozzarella (we’re not huge bacon fans). Quick question (not sure if it has been asked yet! I didn’t have time to read all the comments): can I use baking cups (like for cupcakes) for these? I used a nonstick muffin pan and cooking spray and they still stuck to the pan and were a nightmare to get out! Eating two now to “taste test” 😉 and they are amazing! Thank you for the recipe!!
I think it would probably stick to the wrappers. Odd that baking spray didn’t work, mine popped right out of the pan (I use a pampered chef metal cupcake tin).
you can made french toast ahead, freeze it and just pop it in the toaster for breakfast, same with pancakes. does not work well if there are things like chocolate chips or fruit in the toast or pancakes, plain works best. Add your favorite toppings or sprinkle with powdered sugar and some coco powder. Add a small scoop of frozen yougurt to steamy oatmeal, it will cool it down for little ones and leave a creamy add to that the kids see as a treat.
These look really good! I don’t have kids but I still love make-ahead breakfasts that you can freeze. I will be making some for myself!
these are the cutest little quiches ever.. perfect snack idea!
Bite-size and perfect for a quick early-morning breakfast! So many options to switch it up too. Love it!
I hear ya on the school morning… I’m dragging and really don’t feel like making elaborate breakfast! This is one awesome breakfast idea, Aimee! Love that you can freeze them!
Consequently mouth watering! That looks impressive.
So fancy! I love that they can be stored in the freezer…that basically takes away any excuse to not eat a healthy breakfast!
Exactly. Make them fresh or freeze for later. No excuses 🙂
the photograph is really seducing me….
i guess i’ll be really glad starting a day with your quiche too!
I have never made a cooked breakfast for my kids during the week and we homeschool, so have more time than the typical family. We usually just grab cereal, yogurt & fruit, or oatmeal each morning. I save the pancakes and such for the weekends and sometimes for dinner. Love these mini quiche though and will have to make some for the freezer!
Are you ready for me to cry? Because I’m about to cry. No one in my family likes quiche! It’s a total disgrace and is a further reminder that I must have been adopted into a family of aliens. It’s CRAZY. But I, on the other hand, LOVE quiche and find it to be so irresistibly addictive. And I’m obsessed with these baby quiches, which are pint-sized for JUST ME! *rejoices*
Oh no! I think you need to ditch that family and move to Chicago 🙂 Seriously though, keep a stash of these in your freezer for emergency quiche cravings!
This is perfect for when you don’t have time to scramble up some eggs and bacon. Love how cute they are too!
Mmmm I love crustless quiches, and these are adorable! 😀
Thanks Jess. Crust just adds one more step, lol!!
omg… very tempting… This recipe is new for me… Bookmarked ! I am gonna try this for sure
