What Is Mini Crustless Quiche?

Mini crustless quiche refers to a bite-sized version of the traditional quiche but without the crust. A typical quiche is a savory tart consisting of a pastry crust filled with a mixture of eggs, cream, cheese, meats, and vegetables. In the case of mini crustless quiche, the recipe skips the crust, resulting in a lighter and lower-carb alternative.

To make a mini crustless quiche, you typically mix beaten eggs with ingredients like cheese, diced vegetables, herbs, and cooked meats. This mixture is then poured into individual muffin tins or small baking dishes and baked until the eggs are set and the quiche has a firm texture. Mini crustless quiches are versatile and can be customized with various ingredients to suit personal preferences. They make great appetizers, snacks, or even a part of a brunch spread.

In just 40 minutes, you can whip up a batch of these delightful Mini Crustless Quiches that will steal the show at your breakfast table. With a prep time of only 10 minutes and a cook time of 30 minutes, this recipe is a breeze for anyone, whether you’re a seasoned chef or a kitchen novice.

To get started, preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F/Gas 4). While it’s warming up, melt a tablespoon of butter in a frying pan. Toss in finely chopped onions, red bell peppers, and baby spinach, sautéing them to flavorful perfection. Once these veggies are a medley of deliciousness, it’s time to whisk together 5 eggs and 300ml (1 ¼ cups) of pouring cream, adding a cozy layer of grated cheddar cheese to the mix.

Pop it all into the oven and let the magic happen for 25 minutes until the quiches are set and golden brown. Allow them to cool a bit before unveiling these little bites of joy from the tin or silicon cases.

Equipment

  • Muffin Liners
  • Muffin Tin

Ingredients

  • ½ Onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 80g (1 ½ packed cups) Baby spinach, chopped
  • ½ Red Bell Pepper (capsicum) (finely chopped)
  • 5 Eggs
  • 300ml (1 ¼ cups) Pouring Cream
  • 100g (1 Cup) Cheddar cheese (grated)

Instructions

  • Crank it up to 180°C (350°F) or Gas Mark 4. We're getting ready for some baking magic!
  • In a pan, melt a bit of butter. Toss in the onion, cook for 2 minutes. Then, add the bell pepper, give it another minute. Finally, throw in the spinach and let it party for another minute.
  • Whisk those eggs and mix them with cream. Stir in some cheese for that extra flavor kick.
  • Grease up a 12-hole muffin tray or pop in some greased silicone cases. We want these quiches to slide out with ease.
  • Scoop the sautéed veggies into each muffin section. Let those flavors mingle! Pour the egg and cheese mixture into each muffin section. It's the star of the show!
  • Pop it all into the oven and let the magic happen for 25 minutes. You'll know it's ready when it's set and flaunting a beautiful golden hue.
  • Once out of the oven, let them cool a bit before you unleash them from the tin or silicone case. We want them to be comfortably warm, not scorching hot.

Notes

No-Stick Zone: Make sure to generously grease your muffin pan before pouring in the egg mix. After they’ve worked their magic in the oven, let them chill for 10 minutes before popping them out. If they’re too hot, they might play hard to get. Silicon muffin trays are like the superheroes of this recipe – no sticking guaranteed!
Mix It Up: Don’t be shy to trade the listed veggies for any other finely chopped veggie you fancy. If your veggies are on the firm side, like sweet potatoes, give them a quick cook and cool-down before joining the party. Is cheese feeling a bit basic? Swap it out, and toss in some chopped or dried herbs for an extra flavor boost.
Go Light: If you’re feeling a bit on the healthy side, swap out the cream for milk and cut down on the cheese. Light and delicious!
Tiny Treats for Tots: Make these crustless wonders in a mini muffin tray – perfect for tiny hands! (Just bake for 18 mins.) Trimming down on cheese? Add some fresh herbs or a sprinkle of dried ones for an extra flavor punch and lower sodium.
Keep It Fresh: Once these minis cool off, stash them in an airtight container and pop them in the fridge for up to 3 days. If you’re planning for the future, individually wrap them, toss them in a ziptop bag, and freeze for up to 3 months. Easy peasy!

Time for The Tips!

  1. Grease It Up: These little quiches have a talent for sticking, so be extra generous when greasing your muffin pan before tossing in the veggies and egg mix. Think of it as giving them a comfy slide to party town.
  2. Cool Vibes: Let the quiches cool for a solid 10 minutes after their hot oven adventure. It’s like giving them a little spa break – they’re less likely to cling onto the pan. If they’re being stubborn, a butter knife or spatula around the edges should do the trick.
  3. Silicone Love: If you’ve got silicone muffin trays, you’re in for a treat! Quiches pop out like magic. Silicone muffin cases are cool too, so feel free to pick your silicone sidekick for this recipe.

Trying Some Variations With This Recipe!

  1. Veggies: Feel free to play around with the veggies based on what you have in your kitchen or your taste preferences. It’s not a must, but I like to sauté the veggies to make them a bit tender and let out their juicy flavors before adding them to the eggs. Remember, if you’re dealing with tougher veggies like carrots or sweet potatoes, give them a good cook before mixing them in.
  2. Cheese: Say goodbye to the usual Cheddar and say hello to a world of cheese possibilities! Swap it out for Monterey Jack, Swiss, Tasty, Mozzarella, Feta, or Parmesan for a whole new flavor experience.
  3. Extra Add-Ins: Let’s get creative! Throw in some freshly chopped herbs, dried herbs, crispy bacon, or chopped ham for that extra punch of flavor. Your taste buds will thank you!
