Party Girl Diet’s Master Crustless Quiche Recipe

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Quiche Mock-Crust Ingredients:

  • Approximately a 1/2 cup Panko (Japanese) Breadcrumbs or plain breadcrumbs (Add to melted butter/olive oil slowly to coat well)
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter plus 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Seasonings such as sea salt, garlic powder and fresh cracked black pepper to taste

2 MInute Party Girl Diet Mock-Crust Method:

  1. Spray glass baking dish (or non-stick metal) with Olive Oil or Butter spray to coat bottom of dish
  2. Press in breadcrumb mixture evenly on bottom and up sides to create mock-crust (can be very thin – the egg mixture below will act as a filler)

Master Egg Mixture for Quiche:

1 cup fat free half and half or low fat milk (or even water but use 50% less)
5 cage free, organic eggs
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Dash of cayenne for a metabolism boost, and/or spices of choice

Fillings:

  • 2 to 3 cups prepared vegetables, such as red swiss chard, spinach, red onions, mushrooms, assorted colored peppers, sun-dried, fresh, or canned diced tomatoes.
  • 4 ounces, or about 1 cup grated or crumbled cheese, such as goat cheese, Gruyere, cheddar, Parmesan, fontina, provolone, mozzarella, Gouda, (always choose low-fat if you are watching your weight, and try combining a few cheese varieties to create a tasty combination of textures and flavors).
  • 1 to 4 tablespoons chopped fresh herbs of choice such as rosemary, chives, basil, dill, etc.
  • 3/4 cup chopped crisp turkey bacon, diced lean ham, or canadian bacon (substitue with more veggies if you don’t want to include meat).
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, optional, this is good to use with vegetables that release liquid during cooking, such as spinach and zucchini

Method:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Whisk the fat free half-and-half, eggs and yolks in large glass measuring cup.
  • Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne or spice of choice to taste.
  • Spread half the desired filling evenly in the pan, top with about half the cheese; repeat with remaining filling and cheese. Pour the egg mixture over the fillings. Top with more herbs or cheese as desired.

Bake until the quiche is firm (no loose egg mixture) in the center, about 40 to 50 minutes, yet begin checking at 20 – 30 minutes, as ovens types and altitudes may vary cooking times needed. Cool to room temperature on a rack before serving.
