|Quick Crustless Quiche (with added spinach!)|
I am rather new to the quiche making scene. This is the recipe for the first quiche I've ever made--and it does not require making a pastry crust! *Update* Since originally writing this, I have made this quiche multiple times...it does not disappoint! It also freezes beautifully (freeze before baking and thaw before cooking).
Quick QuicheAdapted from the recipe found here.
Here's what you'll need, plus mozzarella cheese.
8 slices bacon
4 oz mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 tablespoons butter, melted
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cups milk
First, melt your butter and set it aside (this gives it a chance to cool). Then, fry up your 8 slices of bacon (NOT in the butter!). This is the most time-consuming part of this recipe (i.e. this is an easy recipe).
Then finely dice the onion. I like it very fine.
In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, butter, onion, salt, flour, and milk.
And I like to add freshly ground pepper, too.
Then crumble the bacon into your lightly greased pie pan, covering the bottom.
Then add the cheese. I like mozzarella, but the original recipe called for Swiss. The cheese and bacon at the bottom serves as your "crust."
Then gently pour the egg mixture over your "crust." Go slowly so that the bacon and cheese does not mix with the rest and stays on the bottom (but if it mixes, no biggie really).
Then put it in the oven! 350 degrees for 35 minutes, or until set.
Mmmmm, lovely. Enjoy this quiche hot out of the oven or chilled. This recipe is versatile, so feel free to add broccoli, sausage, tomato, or ham...or whatever! My recent favorite addition is 5 oz of spinach.
