I love simple dinners that don’t require fancy ingredients and include lots of goodness. This basic quiche recipe is so easy to make, and you can easily change up the vegetables with what’s in your garden or fridge.
If you are trying to save money on food this recipe is for you. You may have a family dinner coming up or just more mouths to feed. A few pantry staples and vegetables go a long way in this quiche and are inexpensive.
If you are a gardener, you may have an abundance of zucchini and be looking for basic recipes to include them in. This basic crustless quiche is a good one to add to your recipe book. I find that 3-4 large zucchinis are sufficient for this quiche.
What’s great about simple recipes like this is that you can add in what you already have in your fridge. Instead of rushing out to the grocery store to buy special ingredients get creative with your quiche instead.
This is a recipe that I inherited from my mum, so it reminds me of my childhood. She would make this with tuna if we didn’t have bacon in the fridge.
So, you may be wondering what you can do with this basic quiche recipe?
What to use in your Basic Crustless Quiche Recipe
My favourite ingredient to add to this quiche is bacon. That way this quiche could double up as a breakfast meal too! I like to use streaky bacon and cut it into bite sized chunks. You don’t need to precook this as it will bake in the oven.
Tuna is an inexpensive pantry staple that you can add instead of bacon. I promise its delicious and it’s a good source of Omega 3. I recommend adding in a 185g tin that is preserved in olive oil then you can omit the ½ cup oil or butter that the recipe calls for.
This is an easy one. Add whatever cheese you like to eat. I like to add edam cheese to my quiche, but you could add feta, mozzarella, or Colby. Really whatever you have on hand will work fine.
I used wholemeal flour in my quiche, and it worked just fine. It has more fibre than plain white flour but again just use what you have in your pantry. Keep it simple and easy! If you are gluten free you can add gluten free flour to this recipe too. I have tested it before, and it works great.
Oil or Butter
Olive oil is a good oil to use in this basic quiche recipe. You could also use melted butter or if you are making this with tuna in olive oil just omit this step from the recipe.
You could add any vegetables and they would taste so good in this crustless quiche. Sliced capsicum, carrot, spinach, pumpkin, and fresh herbs would be lovely. If you have kids this is a great recipe to hide grated vegetables in!
What do I bake this Basic Crustless Quiche Recipe in?
You can use a pie dish, quiche dish, casserole dish or even a baking tray used for slices. I used a glass quiche dish to bake mine in. Use a little bit of butter to grease the dish or pan. Or you can use baking paper for an easier clean up afterwards.
Can you pre-make this Basic Crustless Quiche Recipe?
Yes! I love making this for my weekly lunches so I don’t have to stress during the week. Its also nice to have this on hand if you know you will be home late one night and need to feed your family.
You can store this quiche in the fridge up to 4-5 days.
This is also a great dish to serve warm with a fresh side salad.
