Crustless Quiches

crustless-quiche-2

I have to admit that I am a little strange, I don’t really like Omelet’s & typically I am not really a Quiche girl, but I love these Quiches!.

This quiche recipe combines all my favourites, bacon, cheese, zuchini and zesty fresh herbs. Not to mention its super easy to make & you can add in any vegetables or herbs that you have on hand. Sometimes mine have mushrooms, sometimes they don’t, it all depends whats in the fridge when the Quiche cravings hit.

I love making the muffin versions of these as they make perfect snacks for little hands & a yummy addition to any lunch box.

They are a perfect on-hand staple as they can be frozen & pulled out of the freezer to top up lunch boxes or as a quick dinner at anytime, that’s if you don’t eat them all!! I have to make a double batch to ensure that any of mine make it to the freezer 🙂

Crustless Quiches a’la Mama Going Natural

  • 2 zuchini’s
  • 4 large swiss brown mushrooms
  • 3 shallots
  • 4 rashes of bacon
  • 3 sprigs of oregano
  • 2 sprigs of thyme
  • 1 1/2 c grated cheese
  • 2 c milk
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3/4 c spelt flour
  • 3/4 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t himalayan salt
  • 1 t ground pepper

Grate your zuchini & place in a bowl, add chopped mushrooms, diced shallots & sliced bacon rashes. Pull off the leaves of your herbs & add them & your grated cheese to the bowl & stir well to combine.

In a jug mix the eggs, milk, spelt, baking powder, salt & pepper & whisk well to combine.

At this stage you can either mix your egg custard into your filling & scoop it into your dish or muffin pan, but I prefer to use a spoon & scoop in the vege mix to the top of each pan & then pour over the egg custard. This makes little quiches chockful of yummy goodness as opposed to little omelets (just my opinion).

Bake for 45 minutes at 180 degrees.
