Crustless quiche is an easy dish to have on the table fast.
This is an extremely versatile recipe and one that you’ll be happy to have in your repertoire for quick, easy evening meals. The recipe I’ve added below is to make from scratch, but I let you in on my secret to using up leftovers for an even quicker satisfying dinner.
Do you have leftovers? When the kids come over I often make a roast; I bet you do too. It’s easy, just throw everything in the oven and leave it to cook. Afterall I want to spend time with my grandson not standing in the kitchen cooking dinner. I do all sorts of roasting or slow cooking in the oven, so It’s not boring for them.
I call making crustless quiche a night off from cooking, so I plan to have leftovers. I don’t always get leftovers because my family can eat anyone under the table lol. But I do try to whip them away and freeze or pop them in the fridge out of site.
In the above photo is shows how I just simply layer what I want into a quiche, pie or tray then make up the batter and pour over the top.
Now I’ve got the batter poured in, and I’ve grated cheese over the top, and it’s ready to go into the oven.
I usually serve it with salad, but in this picture, I’ve added salad and chips because the quiche has already got some leftover roast lamb in it. You could serve it with a protein if you wish or even more cooked veg. On the odd occasion, I’ve served it with bread for lunch.
The recipe I’ve added below is making one from scratch, but the above is just another way you can make this versatile quiche.
Bec’s Crustless Quiche
- 120 g cheese chopped into small squares (I use any medium hard cheese I have in the fridge)
- 25 g butter
- 1 small onion peeled and quartered
- 1 hand full of parsley
- 4 slices of bacon chopped into bite-size pieces
- 6 cherry tomatoes sliced into ¼’s
- 430 g milk
- 4 eggs
- 75 g plain flour
- Salt and pepper to season
- Preheat the oven to 180c
- Grate the cheese in the TM (Thermomix) bowl on speed 8 for 6-8 seconds and set aside
- Add the small onion and parsley to the TM bowl chop for 2 -3 seconds on speed 6
- Add butter and bacon and sauté for 2 mins/100c/speed 1 (MC off).
- Add milk and eggs first then flour, cheese salt and pepper. Stir to combine on reverse speed + 2 for 10 seconds or so.
- Pour the mix into a pie dish. I like to use glass here, so it browns nicely on the bottom too.
- Scatter the tomatoes on top.
- And bake until golden brown and set. This should take 30 to 40 mins depending on your oven.
