Lose the crust and keep the flavor with this easy recipe for a light and airy crustless bacon cheddar quiche. A perfect delicious brunch dish!
You know what I love about quiche? The fluffy flavorful eggs, and (in my favorite variety) the melty cheese and the delectable bites of bacon. You know what I don’t care that much about? The crust. Call me crazy, but for me the crust just gets in the way of all that eggy, cheesy, bacon-y deliciousness, and I would much rather spend my calories on, say, a lovely naughty glass of red wine on the side. Which is one of the reasons that I am head over heels for this crustless bacon cheddar quiche! Ready for some super easy, super scrumptious, not a crust in sight quiche? Let’s make it!
You want to start by cooking up some chopped bacon, and then spreading it on the bottom of your favorite pie plate along with a generous amount of cheddar cheese. After all, we are skipping the crust, so we can be magnanimous with the cheese.
Now whisk up some eggs with milk and a little flour and butter, and pour that mixture over the bacon and cheese. Grind some pepper on top – you can also add a sprinkle of salt, but I find that between the bacon and the cheese, there’s enough salt going on. Pop it in the oven for about a half hour, and then voila!
I hereby promise that you are going to forget that crusts on quiches ever existed in the world. Ooh-la-la!
