Crustless Quiche

When I make up my weekly menu, I look at what I have on hand and look for recipes that use those items. Last week I had fresh broccoli in the fridge and I had some ham slices in the freezer. When I was looking at my Pinterest boards for healthy recipes, I came across a pin for a Ham and Cheese Crustless Quiche on Skinny Taste’s site. She has such delicious, healthy recipes! This one joined the ranks of favorites!

I used Swiss cheese as my cheese option and it was so good with that ham! Steaming the broccoli just a couple of minutes gave it tenderness without being super limp or soggy. This whole recipe is just delicious! I also prepped the ingredients ahead of time because I was working outside on my back porch and wanted supper to be easy to complete.

To make ahead, I chopped the broccoli and ham and grated the cheese and then set all that in the fridge. I mixed up the custard ingredients and set that bowl in the fridge. All I had to do 45 minutes before suppertime was assemble it in my pie plate.

Here’s Skinny Taste’s recipe:

Ham and Cheese Crustless Quiche

INGREDIENTS

  • cooking spray
  • 1 3/4 cups diced ham steak or leftover ham, 9 oz
  • 1 cup chopped steamed broccoli, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup fresh grated Swiss cheese
  • 2/3 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup half & half cream
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg

INSTRUCTIONS

  • Preheat the to 350F degrees. Spray a pie dish with oil.
  • Evenly spread the broccoli in the dish and top it evenly with the ham.
  • Make the custard mixture by whisking together the milk, half and half, eggs, salt, black pepper, and the nutmeg.
  • Pour the custard into the dish and top with Swiss Cheese.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes, until the center is set.
  • Cut the quiche into 6 pieces and serve.

I served this at supper with a side salad, toasted bread and fresh fruit. It would also be perfect menu item for brunch!

This recipe is 5 points on the Blue WW plan and 6 on the Green Plan.

Enjoy!

  1. I’ve made this before and it’s so good but I had somehow forgotten about it until your post. Thanks for the inspiration! When my husband has to work late, he doesn’t feel like a big heavy meal, but I still need to fix something lighter and good. I have all the ingredients so this is going to be tonight’s supper!
