Crustless Quiche Lorraine

I love making crustless quiche for weekend brunch. They are so easy to do. Since there is no crust, it is not only healthier but also quicker to prepare. You can mix all of the ingredients the night before so they're ready to bake when you wake up. This quiche Lorraine is made with bacon and Gruyere, but you can also try my quiche with no ham and cheese with no crust, no crust without broccoli and cheese, or if you want the crust this spinach ricotta tomato quiche is delicious.

Why is Quiche Lorraine called Quiche Lorraine?

Quiche Lorraine is a popular type of quiche named after the Lorraine region in France. It is traditionally made from eggs, cream and bacon. Over the years, recipes have added cheese to this classic French quiche.

Can I use milk instead of cream in a quiche?

Yes, you can use milk instead of cream in a quiche to lighten it, but I like to mix the two for a silky texture. In this recipe, I use 2/3 cup 2% milk and only ¼ cup half and half.
