Crustless Quiche Lorraine or as My Family Says “Egg Pie”


My family likes quiche but when the kids were little they would not eat quiche. That was too weird sounding to them. They would eat egg pie but not quiche. So my family still calls quiche, egg pie.

The least favorite part of the quiche for my family has always been the crust. They are not fans of the pie crust so we now make it without the crust. A bit healthier and they spent breakfast planning on what they would like in their quiche next time.

Verdict:

Everyone loved this. They all said the dish was so much better without the crust. My daughter asked for me to make one with spinach, mushrooms and cheese next time. My son wants one with tomatoes and Swiss cheese.

    Nice recipe, looking forward to trying it, though I will substitute for the heavy cream, maybe coconut milk.

      You can easily substitute some roasted veggies for the bacon and change up the cheeses so you can use a bit less if you like. Hope you like it!

              Hummus is fairly easy but tahini can be expensive which makes me question if it is worth it. But, the taste is so much better!
