Do you ever feel hurried in the mornings to get the kids to school and get ready for the day? I do all the time. My husband jokes that when I drop the kids off at school it’s like a scene out of Home Alone. You know where the parents wake up late and rush to get their kids to the airport. Yep, that’s me.

I’m not a morning person so I’m always running late BUT I also want my kids to eat a protein-rich breakfast before they start school. That’s why breakfast needs to be easy and fool-proof for me. And I came up with the Easiest Crustless Gluten-Free Quiche Ever to help you too.

So I made this recipe really simple for you. You can use the base recipe and then customize the mix-ins based on your family’s preferences. I’ve even made this quiche the night before, cover it and let it sit in the refrigerator, and then in the morning I’ll pop it into the oven while I get ready.

I know what you’re thinking… but I don’t have 45 minutes to an hour to wait for this to bake. Make crustless gluten-free quiche muffins and bake it in less than 30 minutes. BOOM! The easiest breakfast ever!

How to Customize This Crustless Gluten-Free Quiche

  • Swap out the ham and green pepper for 1 cup of bacon, chopped and 2 stalks of green onions, chopped.
  • Swap out the ham and green pepper for 1 cup of frozen spinach (thawed and drained – squeeze out all the moisture).
  • Swap out the ham and green pepper for 1 cup artichoke hearts, chopped and 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes and swap out the Parmesan cheese for crumbled feta for a Mediterranean-inspired quiche.

How to Make This Crustless Gluten-Free Quiche

This recipe is really simple. I like to use a standing mixer to whip up the eggs to make them extra fluffy. But you can skip that step and just beat the eggs in a bowl and add the cheese and mix-ins to keep it simple.

Sometimes I like to cook the chopped onion and garlic in some butter in a cast iron pan and then add the beaten eggs, cheese and mix-ins, stir it in and then put the cast iron pan in the oven. It makes for a simple one-pot dish and let’s be real… everything tastes better in a cast iron pan. This is optional but I often find it easier than using a glass baking dish.

That’s why I love this recipe. You’ve got the base ingredients and steps but you can customize it to your tastes. I have often omitted the cottage cheese and Parmesan cheese and just used whatever cheese I have on hand – even crumbled feta instead of cheddar cheese. Feta works really well with olives, sun-dried tomatoes and artichokes for a Mediterranean quiche. I’ve even just used leftover vegetables – like grilled asparagus, grilled eggplant, green onions, etc. in this recipe.

Base Crustless Gluten-Free Quiche Recipe

  • 6 eggs, beaten
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 tsp course ground Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 dash nutmeg, finely ground
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated (can omit if preferred)
  • 1/2 cup small curd cottage cheese (can omit if preferred)
  • 1/4 cup Italian flat parsley, chopped

Customizable Ingredients

  • 1 cup ham, chopped (or 1 cup chopped bacon or any meat or omit if preferred)
  • 1 green pepper, chopped (or 1 cup of frozen spinach (thawed and drained) or 1 cup artichoke hearts, chopped)
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 13 baking dish with butter, and set aside.  

  2. Chop the ham, green pepper, parsley, and onion. 

  3. In a stand mixer, crack the eggs into the mixing bowl, and with the whisk attachment, whisk the eggs until they’re light colored and fluffy, about 2 minutes. 

  4. Turn off mixer, and add the ham, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, green pepper, onion, garlic, cottage cheese, salt, pepper, and chopped parsley. Mix at low speed, just until all ingredients are blended. Remove mixing bowl, and scrape sides with a spatula, and stir well. 

  5. Pour mixture into buttered dish, and bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes, or until light golden brown, and puff springs back when touched. 

  6. Serve immediately and enjoy!

How to make crustless gluten-free quiche muffins

  • Get a 12-muffin tin and spray with cooking spray or grease with butter.
  • Make the base quiche recipe and fill individual muffin tins.
  • Have the kids build their own quiche muffins. Offer customizable ingredients like ham, bacon, tomatoes, artichoke hearts, spinach, green onions, hash browns, etc. Just add a sprinkle of ingredients to each tin (about 1-2 tbsp of mix-ins). Mix in with a fork.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until center comes out clean with a fork.

How to Make Crustless Gluten-Free Quiche Muffins

You could also make these into mini quiches with a muffin pan (I prefer to use silicone muffin liners to prevent sticking). Just reduce the cooking time to 20-25 minutes – test with a fork to make sure the middle is fully cooked. Muffin-sized quiches are perfect for packing in school or work lunches. These are a favorite with my kids.

Another idea is to make the mixture ahead of time and store in the refrigerator overnight. Then just pop it in the over first thing in the morning.
