Crustless Quiche Lorraine

I love making crustless quiche for weekend brunches. They are so simple to make. Plus, since there’s no crust, not only is it healthier, but it’s also quicker to prepare. You can mix all the ingredients the night before so it’s ready to bake when you wake up. This Quiche Lorraine is made with Bacon and Gruyere, but you can also try my Ham and Cheese Crustless Quiche, Broccoli and Cheese Crustless Quiche, or if you want the crust this Spinach Ricotta Tomato Quiche is delicious.

Why is quiche Lorraine called quiche Lorraine?

Quiche Lorraine is a popular type of quiche that is named after the Lorraine region of France. It is traditionally made of eggs, cream, and bacon. Over the years, recipes began adding cheese to this classic French quiche.

Can I use milk instead of cream in a quiche?

Yes, you can use milk instead of cream in a quiche to lighten it up, but I like to do a mixture of both for a silkier texture. In this recipe, I use 2/3 cup 2% milk and just ¼ cup half and half.

What should I serve with quiche?

Quiche is great for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and can be served hot or room temperature. Here are some serving suggestions for quiche Lorraine for breakfast:

  • Hash Browns
  • Sheet Pan Home Fries
  • Tropical Fruit Salad

And if you’re eating quiche for lunch or dinner, try these side dish recipes:

  • Potato and Green Bean Salad
  • Cacio e Pepe Brussels Sprouts

Variations:

  • Use Swiss or cheddar cheese instead of gruyere.
  • Swap the bacon for chopped ham.
  • Add spinach to the quiche Lorraine for some extra nutrients.
  • If you’d like quiche with a crust, use refrigerated pie dough.
  • Pour the egg mixture into a muffin tin to make crustless quiche Lorraine muffins. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes.
