Sun Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Crustless Quiche

Jump to Recipe

This Sun Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Crustless Quiche couldn’t be easier! And it doesn’t require you to make/buy a crust but still has a crunchy exterior and I am OBSESSED.

If you’ve never made a crustless quiche before, let me be the first to welcome you to your new favorite way to make an egg bake. This custardy quiche is loaded with sun dried tomatoes and goat cheese and topped with some fresh greens to give it a bit of zip. There’s no crust because that’s how I roll. 1: I’m too lazy to make pie dough! And 2: I used some panko breadcrumbs to line the quiche for a crispy exterior with minimal effort. It’s genius if you haven’t tried it and I can guarantee you’ll be obsessed!

Let’s talk crustless quiche 101 quickly:

  • Make sure you grease the dish well before sprinkling the panko so the quiche is easy to remove once baked.
  • If you want to sub in other ingredients besides caramelized onions, be my guest! Just use equal measurements of another vegetable so the baking time isn’t affected
  • If you want to add crispy bacon or pancetta, about 1/3 cup of crumbled bacon/pancetta is the perfect addition
  • If you want to make this and freeze it – go for it! Quiches freeze well. Just bake it, let it cool. wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for up to 3 months

    This sounds like it will make a delicious quarantine Easter dish. I fortunately have all the ingredients – so something to get really excited about!!!

  2. Dang! I only have 3 eggs. I have all the other ingredients though… do you think this could still work?

    1. haven’t ever thought of that! it would def change the flavor profile but it would be good!

  3. 5 stars
    Quick and easy to make, with most of the ingredients pantry staples. The smell of it cooking lured the teenagers into the kitchen, suffice to say there were no left overs. We eat quiche quite regularly, and all family members agreed that this quiche was definitely a level above our standard fare.

  4. 5 stars
    Yummy! I added a little mozzarella and leftover chopped, cooked steak to the mixture. Delicious flavor combination!

    1. really any kind of cheese would work – chunks of cheddar, feta, pepperjack, monterey jack, brie, fontina, havarti!!

    1. 5 stars
      It was terrific! Didn’t have whole milk or heavy cream. Used 1/2 & 1/2 and skim milk. Made in the morning and served for dinner with a salad. Flavor combination was great. Thank you!

  5. Can I do everything up to step 4 the night before and bake it the next morning? Do I need to let it come to room temperature first?

  6. I so want to try this! I love quiche but I need to avoid dairy. Any suggestions on a milk/cream substitute? Coconut milk?

  7. Hi Gabby,

    I made this and even though the flavors were incredible, the quiche wasn’t holding together when I tried slicing, it ended up being like scrambled eggs. It was so hard to get it to hold its form in a slice, any advice for next time? I want to make it again!

    1. did you try cutting it while it was still hot? best to slice once its cooled a bit

  8. 5 stars
    Amazing! Made it for dinner and served it with arugula and lemon and olive oil…it was perfect! Let it cool for about twenty minutes before serving and it held together perfectly! Served bacon on the side. My first time trying one of your recipes and can’t wait to try more of them. Thanks for sharing!

  9. I’m so excited to make this for my mom for Mother’s Day! And happy first Mother’s Day Gaby! Could I substitute 2 cups half and half for the 1 cup heavy cream and 1 cup milk?

  10. I am cooking brunch for a big crowd… could I double (or triple) this and make it in a 9×13 pan or would it be better to do 2 separate quiche? I only have 1 quiche pan…

  11. I’m excited to make this for Easter! I have two questions: can you assemble it the day before and then bake? Also, how’s do you recommend reheating if you freeze it? Thanks! I love your recipes.

    1. Never mind! I just read through your other comments and found the answers to my questions. Thank you again for such delicious recipes!

    Made this for Easter. It was a hit. I made another one today because my daughter complained there wasn’t
    any leftover! She said, “don’t change a thing it was perfection!”. Thanks Gaby for another wonderful recipe!
