This Crustless Quiche with Bacon and Brie is my new favorite way to make quiche. My family actually prefers quiche without the crust…just make sure you spray the pie plate really good so it doesn’t stick. The brie in this crustless quiche gives so much flavor and the bacon, well, you know it makes everything taste better.
I’ve never met a quiche I didn’t like, but the most amazing quiche I’ve ever had was in a cafe in Paris. It was a classic quiche Lorraine. It was buttery, cheesy, and absolutely divine. I had it with the most amazing french onion soup I’ve ever had!
That trip I also had the most amazing hot chocolate I’ve ever had. In summary, if you want to have “the most amazing food you’ve ever had,” visit Paris.
My husband is ex-military and we lived 4 hours ( not including traffic) from Paris. We visited several times while we lived in Europe, and I cannot wait to go back one day. The next time we go will be without having to deal with that awful traffic!
My 7 year old son is my crustless quiche lover and I’ve been feeding him quiche for many years. It’s one of the only meals that he will ask for seconds! We actually call it bacon pie in our house because that sounds more appealing to a 7 year old. I can make two quiches at a time and they will be devoured by all members of the family in no time!
This crustless quiche was inspired by the abundance of cheese I had in the fridge. I am not sure how I acquired all of this cheese, especially since I normally don’t eat it very often! I do love a good stinky cheese so this brie was right up my alley.
Quiche is traditionally made with a crust and Swiss cheese. You could go to the trouble of finding a low carb pie crust recipe and making that, but we like it without a crust. It’s easier, that’s for sure! I paired the brie with Gouda instead of Swiss cheese because we really aren’t fans of Swiss. Also, the brie I used was a little on the funky side (love funky cheese), so I thought the milder Gouda would be a better pairing.
Low Carb quiche makes a really easy weeknight dinner served with a salad. The only thing I find difficult is waiting for it to bake in the oven for 40 minutes!
CAN CRUSTLESS QUICHE BE FROZEN?
Any quiche can be frozen after it has been baked. I would bake it in a tin foil pie pan so it can be removed from the freezer, thawed in the refrigerator overnight, and then placed in a 400F oven for 25-30 minutes.
This crustless quiche with bacon and brie is a great low carb take on a brunch classic. You could call it crustless quiche or you could call it a frittata. I just call it yummy. Feel free to use any cheese you like in this quiche!
