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!

Ingredient Notes

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.

Comments & Reviews

  1. I think mom guit is there no matter what we so. It was born right along with our children!
    But these are great. I loe anything you can make ahead!

  2. I love quiche! And even though I have no kids, I usually end up eating oatmeal in the morning before work due to a lack of time. These are perfect!

  3. I don’t have kids to feed but I would eat these everyday! Loving the single serving.

  4. I need to learn how to make these! I’m always in such a rush in the morning, and it would be great to have something that I can just easily pop in the microwave.

  5. I am all for easy breakfasts that can be made ahead of time…otherwise it is pop tarts and leftovers all around for my crew. Love these cute little popable egg cups!!!

    1. I didn’t want to mention the poptarts for fear of getting judged too harshly. But yeah….

  6. My kiddos would love these. We just had quiche for dinner last night, but these are perfect for school breakfast!

  7. School isn’t an issue around here yet, but the idea of having breakfasts done for the husband and daughter once the new baby shows up (~2 weeks) is VERY appealing! *scurries off to make quiche* 🙂

  8. Forget about the kids, I would love these for breakfast too! Ok, I’ll share with them. 😉

  9. I definitely need all the help I can get in the mornings! My daughter started Kindergarten last week (my first in school), and we are new to the whole school morning routine. It’s the fourth day of school and I’m already worn out! 🙂
    These quiches look fantastic and I’m all for a quick, filling, and nutritious breakfast.

    1. Let go of the guilt, and go with it 🙂 And keep a stash of these in the freezer, for both of you!!

  10. Let’s see if I can stick with “real” breakfasts like this for a few weeks and still manage to remember to brush my teeth before I get out the door. Oh how I love school mornings… 😉

  11. I don’t have kids to send back to school, but I do have a husband that doesn’t know how to make his own lunch and would love finding some of these in there! Pinned!

  12. I think it’s the RARE mother who gets her kids out the door with lunches, homework, athletic practice clothes, etc gets them out on time, and gets herself out on time, AND then cooks a big ‘real’ breakfast like pancakes, eggs, etc. You are not alone! I’d love to meet the moms who do all that 🙂 These are a great solution, Aimee! Pinned
