  5. Bake on the middle oven rack for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before serving.

Tip

Serve with fresh sliced tomatoes and leafy greens.

Store-bought, fully cooked bacon can also be used for this recipe.

You could also make this recipe as individual quiches or as egg muffins in a greased muffin tin. Make sure to reduce the time in the oven to about 10-15 minutes depending on size.

    I’ve tried to make a crustless quiche twice & it’s always ended up a load of slop. Decided to give this a go last night for our lunch today. Turned out perfect, I used mushrooms in place of broccoli also added some leftover cooked chicken. So happy I finally made one that worked as it’s such a versatile recipe.

    This is very tasty and turned out really well. I had to bake it for more like 35-40 minutes in a convection oven at 350 F in a glass pie dish. Easy and reliable. Served beautifully.

    Many DD recipes call for onion powder. Can we substitute with freshly-chopped onions? What is the conversion from dried to fresh for onions? (e.g. rule of thumb for herbs is 1 tablespoon fresh = 1 teaspoon dried). Also, are all onions roughly the same carb count? This crustless quiche is delicious and a new household favourite. We often swap out the broccoli for the equivalent carb count of peppers or mushrooms. Thank you!

    Can you please tell me how many strips of bacon is equivalent to 4oz?

    That will depend on the size of your bacon strips. Most bacon is sold in 1lb packs, so if that's the case for you, take the total number of strips and divide by 4. That will tell you how many strips are in 4oz.

    We made this for a delicious grab and go weekday breakfast. We added an extra 1/2 cup cream to the recipe for four servings (2 tablespoons per serving) to give it a more quiche-like consistency and baked it in a jumbo muffin tin in a water bath. We used a water bath to prevent the brown crust that didn't appeal to us. It makes six mini quiches.

    Tried this recipe for the first time as I was looking for an easy Friday night meal - it was perfect! Didn't have broccoli so substituted asparagus. YUM! Cooked exactly to recipe, turned out beautifully.
