This Crustless Broccoli and Ham Quiche features a delicious egg filling and is topped with melty cheese. It’s low-carb and a healthy option for your breakfast or brunch.
I first had quiche when I worked at a bakery in high school.
Just a few bites of the creamy egg filling and flaky crust and I was hooked!
Fast forward to a few years ago when I was on a low-carb diet and was desperate for tasty meals that my family would also enjoy.
I had made a quiche recipe from my husband’s mom a few times, but it definitely was not low-carb.
So I modified the recipe to remove the crust and add in some vegetables and now it’s one of my family’s favorites for breakfast (or dinner)!
How do you make broccoli quiche from scratch?
COMBINE 1/2 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons flour, 2 eggs and 1/2 cup milk in a small bowl and MIX well.
PLACE 1 cup cooked, chopped broccoli; 1 cup cooked, chopped ham and 1/2 cup chopped onion in the bottom of a greased 9 inch pie dish and POUR the egg mixture on top.
SPRINKLE 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese evenly over the quiche.
BAKE at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until the cheese is golden brown.
If your quiche is not fluffy, you might need to adjust the ratio of egg to liquid. Try using smaller eggs or squeezing out any extra moisture from your cooked broccoli.
Be sure to not overbake the quiche. Good quiche should jiggle a little when you cut into. Try adjusting the cook time down by a few minutes and see if that helps, too!
Let your quiche cool for at least 20 minutes before cutting.
You can also make your quiche ahead of time and eat it the next day!
Recipe Tips and Substitutions
I always use low-fat mayonnaise for this recipe and it tastes just as good!
Sometimes I’ll add another egg to the liquids (for a total of 3 eggs) if I want to have more filling in the pie dish.
The easiest way to make this crustless quiche is to use frozen broccoli. I pour some in a microwave safe dish, add in enough water to cover the broccoli, cook it in the microwave for 2 minutes, drain and pour into the pie dish.
Instead of using ham, you can use chicken, shrimp, tuna, crab or our family’s favorite, SPAM!
If you don’t like onions like me, you can substitute in 1 teaspoon of onion powder or dried minced onion.
If you would like to make this quiche with a crust, you’ll follow the same directions, just pour everything into an unbaked pie shell. Then bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
