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
