Yet another crustless quiche that is designed for a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet. It is very rich and cheesy. The Parmesan and butter on the bottom form a nice skin on the bottom that really helps. The egg and cream mixture is quite flexible and the ratio of egg to cream and the heaviness of the cream is a personal choice. The cheese can easily be replaced with any hard cheese that holds up well when shredded such as Swiss, Cheddar, Gouda, or Provolone. The meats can be replaced with anything that isn't too wet; whether it is meat or vegetable.

  • Cook and stir bacon and sausage in a large skillet and over medium-high heat until evenly browned and bacon is crisp, about 10 minutes; drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Brush butter on the bottom and sides of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese into the bottom of the baking dish and top with bacon and sausage. Spread Cheddar cheese over bacon and sausage.

  • Beat cream, eggs, and half-and-half together in a bowl. Slowly pour egg mixture over cheese and sausage into the baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

It was okay. I prefer a denser quiche (more eggs). Read More

Delicious quiche - these are amazing made in muffin tins and you can freeze them and just microwave for breakfast. I lightly cook onion, spinach, ham and mushroom for a really flavorful version. Cooking time is about 45 min if you like them golden on the top in muffin size cups. Read More

I used this recipe for the ratio of eggs to milk/heavy cream. Also, needed something without a crust. Easy to add whatever meat you have (bacon and/or sausage), any type of cheese and whatever vegetable I might have...usually leftover broccoli, asparagus or spinach. Read More

Very delicious! The parmesan bottom gave it a nice buttery taste. I added spinach and caramelized onions to mine and it was yummy. A very tasty and simple recipe to make! Will definitely make again! Read More

I used all 1/2 and 1/2 because that's what I had. It was great. Next time I'll stick with all 1/2 and 1/2 to save a little on the fat. I did follow another comment. I added sauteed onions and some spinach to 1/2. I just layered on top of the cheese and then added the egg mixture to the whole thing. It was super yummy. I didn't miss having a crust and love the casserole dish. It makes breakfast for dinner easier!! Read More

I dropped a brand new container of a dozen eggs on the floor and was able to recover 11 of them but they wouldn’t last long out of the shell so I decided to make quiche. Never made quiche before so I tried this one since it was “easy”. It was. I skipped the bacon and used 1lb of spicy Italian chicken sausage. I also added mushrooms and some chopped onion to the sausage while browning. I didn’t have any Parmesan cheese but I did have the cheddar cheese so I used that on the bottom of the casserole dish instead. I thought it sounded like way too much cream so I used 1 cup only of half and half and all eleven eggs :-). I also mixed some of the cheese into the eggs AND some spinach. I sprinkled some cheese on top of the sausage, as described in the recipe, then I poured the egg mixture in and topped with more cheese. I ended up only using about 1/2 of the 1lb bag of cheese. More would be too much I thought. It all turned out very, very good and it was very easy. Read More

Great recipe, will make again. I did add veggies to it and it turned out wet. Did not set ( my bad). Next time if I add veggies I will also add a little flour. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I made two. One with sausage and one with Blackened Salmon. The blackened salmon is great for low carb eaters. Read More
