Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

Spinach and Ricotta Quiche and Chicken Quiche are so popular on my site, but I often get asked how to make it crustless. For this low-carb version, I made this with no crust, and added lots of broccoli plus I used some light cream to give the eggs more of a creamier custard texture, as most quiches have rather than a spongier baked egg texture. For a ham version, try this Crustless Ham and Cheese Quiche, or this Crustless Quiche Lorraine! I also love this crustless mini quiche for meal prep.

Broccoli Quiche Variations:

  • You can add some diced ham or bacon and use slightly less broccoli.
  • Try this with mozzarella cheese or Colby Jack cheese in place of cheddar.
  • You can swap more milk in place of the half & half cream, but the texture won’t be as creamy, it will have a spongier texture.
  • Make them in individual ramekins in place of one large pie dish.
  • If you wish to use a crust, follow the directions for this recipe using a deeper pie dish, and use less broccoli.
  • Refriegerate 3 to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

  1. Love this recipe! I made it 3 times already and it’s so good. I use frozen broccoli, swap out 3 of the eggs for liquid egg whites (still 5 eggs total), and put in fat free cheddar and it’s divine. 🖤

    A note: I find 40 minutes isn’t long enough to cook the center of the quiche…not sure if it’s pan differences (I’m using a recycled Marie Callender’s pie tin) or the egg whites are messing something up, but I leave it in the oven for 60 minutes and then leave out for a bit. Since I don’t eat it right away, reheating it in the microwave solves the issue. 

  2. This is such a simple and delicious recipe! Best third day after baking. Great for any meal of the day!

  3. So delicious!   Easy and very tasty!

  4. Can the broccoli cheddar quiche be assembled early in the day?

  5. Wow!  Just made this for easy simple recipe for lunch.  Just delicious.  Light and balanced flavour with perfect crispness of broccoli.   Looking forward to the leftovers.  

  6. Yum!!!  Thanks for sharing this.  The most satisfying breakfast I’ve had in a long time!

  7. Dear Ms. Hololka:

    I began a low carb lifestyle change under medical direction after a recent diagnosis change of Diabetes from Pre-diabetes. I found your Broccolil Quiche recipe in a Costco Connection magazine and LOVE IT!!! It is fast becoming a weekly staple in my search for low carb/high protein alternatives for meals! I use 1 individual bag of Kirkland frozen broccoli (microwaved in the bag), add another egg (total 6 eggs), substituted milk with unsweetened Almond Milk, doubled the shredded cheese, and add butter instead of the half-and-half (because I didn’t have any and because I am lactose sensitive). This Quiche makes me so happy!!! 😉 Thank you for what you do!

    Sincerely, Carolyn F., Minnesota, USA

  8. Loved this recipe! Easy to assemble and tasted delicious. Substituted oat milk for 2% milk and half and half. After 40 minutes in the oven at 350 degrees C, it still wasn’t done so I popped it in the microwave for 7 minutes and it came out perfect!

  9. Hi – thank you for sharing this recipe. I am in the UK and am wondering what half and half cream is please?

  10. This looks delicious! Do you think I could prep this the night before baking? 

  11. I make this at least.3/times a.month ! Easy.and Delicious! I add asparagus, onion, mushrooms and red pepper! Use any veggies you have on hand .Always fresh ! Spinach ,yellow and green squashes also !

  12. I added 6 prosciutto stips to this recipe and delicious What is calorie count with this addition Thanks

    Linda Roundtree

  13. Made this for breakfast today, but I subbed greek yogurt for the half and half, it was very good and creamy. Me, Mom, and my sister all loved it. Thanks for a great receipe

  14. I want to add, great recipe and very flexible. I appreciate all the great ideas people have suggested.
    My only negative on the recipe as written is that it suggests an awful lot of salt, especially if you are using cheese or other salty ingredient like bacon. I am happy with 1/4 tsp salt, kosher or otherwise, even with reduced cheese.

  15. What size round pan works well with this, crustless form?

    • I make it in an 8 1/2 inch round dish that is about 2 inches deep.
      Also works well in my round enamel cast iron 10 inch pan, which is not as deep.

  16. Excellent recipe. Easy and delicious. I added chopped onion and fresh thyme the first time I made it. This morning I swapped in spinach and feta for the broccoli and cheddar. I love recipes that teach you a method or proportions that you can use in flexible ways.

  17. Easy to make and delicious!

  18. I have been on the Keto diet for almost 6 months now and went vegetarian a couple of weeks back. It has been the greatest challenge for me to find inspiration and recipes that are satisfying and delicious. This one will go on regular rotation in my house! My husband said it was the best quiche he ever had a my kids both wanted seconds (much to my chagrin as I was hoping for leftovers). Served it with a hemp heart tabouleh and a half an avocado. Was really delicious!

  19. I’m not sure anyone has ever asked me for a recipe before but I’ve been asked for this one and everyone compliments me on it. I’ve made another quiche for probably 40+ years with a crust and meat and this one seems like it is so easy and quick. Love it!

  20. I have made this several times and it’s delicious and easy. Just getting ready to double the recipe for a 4-day cabin getaway with a group of friends.  Tried its ham and different cheeses.  Good that way, too.❤️

  21. I make this all the time…Delicous! Winner! So many combo options!

  22. This recipe is definitely making it to my favorite recipe pile. So quick, easy, and delicious! It was a hit with the whole family. 

  23. Can this be made with frozen broccoli or is it best with fresh?

  24. I absolutely love this recipe! I make it almost weekly as part of my meal prep for the week. I vary the veggies. One week it’ll be a mixture of broccoli and asparagus, another it might be baby portabella mushrooms and baby spinach.

    One substitution I’ve made (and maintain no matter how I shake up the veggie content) is I use unsweetened almond milk in place of the 2% milk. It adds a custardy texture and plays very nicely with the nutmeg, giving the dish a wonderful flavor. And it lowers the calorie count as an added bonus!

    I love SkinnyTaste. It’s become my go-to site for delicious, low cal, healthy recipes and has helped me lose sixteen pounds (and counting)!

  25. Made this for supper tonight. It was great!

  26. I can’t even count how many times I’ve made this quiche. Its quick and easy to assemble and always turns out amazing. I’ve made it numerous times during the last year since I’ve been cooking more and I usually have these ingredients on hand. I’ve also substituted spinach if I don’t have broccoli, although I do prefer the broccoli. 

  27. What a delicious quiche. Served with a salad. Delicious

  28. Made this recipe using fresh spinach. Used a 10 ounce bag and wilted it in a covered micro wave dish for 2 Minutes and squeezed it dry. Also added some diced precooked bacon bits. It was great!

  29. My husband made this tonight- organic fresh broccoli, 5 eggs, unsweetened plain almond milk instead of milk and half & half, and 2% shredded cheddar.  4 pts on green with his changes.  AMAZING.  

  30. Quick, easy dinner for a family. Just add salad.
    I used a used a 12oz package of broccoli florets , thawed as I didn’t want to go to the store for one item. Perfect! Thank you!

  31. Delicious! I used 1 cup plain yogurt in place of the milk/half and half mixture and added a couple extra eggs, and a bit extra broccoli. I baked in a 9″x9″ square dish. It was great Thanks for the recipe!

  32. Easy to make and surprisingly delicious!

  33. Do you know the INSTRUCTIONS for cooking this recipe in a 5-in 1 AIRFRYER with a CONVECTION BAKE option—for the COOKING TIME? I’m guessing it would still be 350 degrees but what would the COOKING TIME BE for this? Thank you for letting me know…I would love to know how to make this adjustment TIME WISE with all your “BAKING” type recipes as I am leaving the conventional oven option in my home now.
    Thank you!!

  34. Could I use ricotta in this?

  35. Can you freeze this quichr

  36. Fast, easy and yummy! Microwaved broccoli in 4 cup glass measure and used the same measuring cup to mix custard. I used 2% sharp cheddar, and 1% milk plus the half and half. Also used 4 eggs and 2 egg whites. Thinly sliced green onion on the top prior to baking. 20 minutes in the Breville.

  37. I used 1/2 cup FF milk and 1/2 cup FF half and half, reduced fat shredded cheddar, 3 eggs & 1/3 cup egg whites. I’m on Weight Watchers and tried to scale down the points as much as possible. I also added mushrooms. It was amazing!!!

  38. Can this be made ahead, like the night before, then cooked in the morning?

  39. Can I do this w frozen broccoli if I thaw it first?

  40. Such a great recipe. Have made this with broccoli and also swapped it with spinach.

  41. can you use frozen broccoli or should it be fresh

  42. This was delicious! I added ham and sliced cherry tomatoes from the garden. 
    So versatile-you can add or change the ingredients. 
    I will make this often with different combos. 
    Thank you for always having such great recipes!

  43. This recipe is perfect because I have to be GF. This time I made it with spinach, artichokes and left over chicken, with swiss cheese. Delicious!

  44. Can you use frozen broccoli 🥦 in this recipe?

  45. I made this today with slight modifications, based on what I had on hand. I used four cups of baby spinach instead of broccoli. I cooked it 90% done prior, then squeezed out as much of the liquid as I could. There was still some moisture at the bottom of my pie plate, but nothing a couple paper towels couldn’t fix. I also subbed 2% cheddar since that’s what I had in the fridge. 

    Great recipe. I will make again! 

  46. Loved this! Quick and easy for a healthy dinner.

  47. Hi, this was so tasty! Thank you! Did you use full fat cheddar cheese? I used 2% sharp cheddar. Do you think it changed the point values any? I’m on purple. Thank you! 

  48. I didn’t have half and half, so I just used all milk. It was delicious! I think next time, I will add some diced onion to give it a bit more “bite.”

  49. Have made this several times. I also put it in a crust when I want and tastes great. I use all half and half. Would love to know how I can use egg beaters instead of eggs. This is soooo easy and I have used different cheeses in it.

  50. I love this recipe! It tastes great and is super easy! 

  51. Had this for lunch, absolute winner. thank you

  52. Looks great!

  53. I made this on Easter and absolutely loved it! And when I have a lot of eggs I want to use, I make this. It’s easy and healthy. It’s another recipe of yours I’ve shared with ny mom and sister. My mom makes it all the time now.

  54. I have a son withe wheat and peanut allergy. He loves broccoli and cheese. It has been very hot this summer and this dish is perfect. It’s light enough , but full of nutrition.

  55. Delicious and so easy! Made it as directed and loved it! Will definitely make this one again.

  56. Simple and delicious   Would not change anything. I’ve had and made others with lots of ingredients but love the taste of this. 

  57. Gina, Can you tell me where you got the pie(?) dish in your Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche photo? I have been admiring it for so long now and googling to try to find one is not working. I plan on making the quiche next week and would really love to serve it in that dish if possible. 
    Thank you so much for any help you can give me. 
    Gratefully, Dianne Bleacher (a major fan 😊)

  58. I didn’t have enough broccoli, so I added wilted spinach and sautéed shrooms. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It had a good flavor, but sprinkling the cheese in top of the veggies and then putting the egg mixture on top of that made a texture I didn’t care for. 

  59. I was a little hesitant to make this and have put it off for a few weeks and then…. I made it today and oh my heck who would have thought that broccoli and eggs could be so YUMMY?? Only change I made was to add some shallots and top it off with some cholula right before I ate it. You always amaze me with these recipies.

  60. I made this for lunch today and it was AMAZING!! I substituted 3/4 Heavy Cream for the milk and half & half to make it Keto friendly. Added some bacon crumbles over the broccoli before covering with cheese. The results were so good! Will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

  61. I made this tonight after an epic grilling fail. Was determined NOT to eat the boxed mac n cheese my daughter made and jumped to this recipe. it was delish and am looking forward to having it for breakfast and/or lunch. Thank you.

  62. Yes, I love it for breakfast or lunch. Something new besides just eggs! 

  63. Followed Recipe exactly, except for the nutmeg. Loved it. I will make again and try to add sun dried tomatoes.

  64. Can you make the crust less broccoli quiche with dairy free cheese?

  65. This was absolutely delicious.  Almost followed the recipe…  I used plain almond milk and only a half teaspoon of salt and sprinkled the nutmeg on the top.  Can’t wait to eat the leftovers.  Thank  you Gina!

  66. Made with 2 per cent milk. No half and half and just delicious. A light Minday night dinner Nd lunch for Tuesday. Delicious

  67. For some reason it took much longer than 40 minutes at 350, I used glass pie plate too! 

  68. This is definitely a keeper and so quick and easy! I added some
    Prosciutto to it and only added half the salt. I also left out the nutmeg.  So good! 

  69. Could you use some whole eggs and then use egg whites to cut down on the fat content?

  70. I just made this. Was very surprised that it was sooo good without a crust. It was light and airy and very flavorful. I used frozen broccoli I cooked it in the oven at 350 using an open casserole dish for about 10-15 minutes. I did not add any water. After it was tender but firm I removed from oven and placed in baking dish to finish preparing the dish.

  71. I HIGHLY recommend reheating this in the air fryer! So delicious and gives a little crispness to the outside. My husband reheated his in his work toaster oven and said that was delicious too. We actually preferred it that way to eating it fresh out of the oven. 
    I did 400* in the air fryer. Preheated for 2 min then cooked it for 3 min and it was perfection

  72. Love this recipe, the quiche lasts for the whole week for a quick filling breakfast!

  73. Made it with a slight variation.  Using cream instead of milk and replacing half of the cheddar cheese with Gruyere.  

  74. Made this for breakfast this morning and it was delicious and so easy to prepare. I typically like a quiche with a crust, but I didn’t have any available and didn’t feel up to making a homemade one. We didn’t miss the crust and enjoyed this with a side of fresh fruit for me and a pastry for my husband. 

  75. Thanks for this slimmed down version of quiche! Tasted wonderful. I added some extras like red onion and garlic too. Will make again!

  76. Very good! Husband loved it as well as he is a big broccoli fan. Added chopped shallots and minced garlic to the broccoli and steamed them all together. I thought I would have it all to myself this week for breakfast, but now I guess I have to share with my husband. He just loves your recipes which is pretty much all I cook now . Can’t wait to try with asparagus when the prices drop this spring.

  77. This recipe is delicious!  I switched the amounts of milk and cream.  I will definitely make this recipe again!

  78. GINA- this is delicious!!! Why did I wait so long to add to rotation?!! I paired quiche with side of mixed fruit, scrumptious. Thanks for another great recipe. No wonder it is one of the top rated  2019  recipes. 

  79. Made this,but added cauliflower and broccoli. It was very good,served it with a green salad. Would be excellent for breakfast too.

  80. Thank you! I am new to your blog and this is so helpful! I am just starting to meal plan to help with WW. Also my daughter is gluten free so the subs for that are great too knowing that you have tried them. 

  81. I love this! The only difference is: I use egg beaters.

    • Have made this several times. I also put it in a crust when I want and tastes great. I use all half and half. Would love to know how I can use egg beaters instead of eggs. This is soooo easy and I have used different cheeses in it.

  82. Delicious! I added a little more egg and used whole milk only and I’m very pleased with the way it turned out. Thanks for another great recipe!

  83. Easy to prepare – excellent meat-free option served with a green salad.

  84. There’s something about the combination of cheddar cheese and broccoli that is simply magical. I had a ton of broccoli florets leftover from a veggie platter I served at a party I hosted, and this was the perfect way to use them all up! I think I may have even used more broccoli than the recipe called for, but the results were still fantastic.

  85. Will it work to use frozen broccoli florettes or does it have to be fresh?

  86. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful recipe with all of us. A delicious QUICHE VARIATION could be with cheddar, salmon and zucchini 😛
    I usually note all of my best recipes in this useful journal

    Best wishes and happy New Year 🙂

  87. Love this recipe and have used it numerous times. It is so easy and delicious.

  88. So easy to make and turned out great!

  89. I have made this twice and loved it! I’m thinking a about making this for Christmas morning since we have some vegetarian guests coming. Can this be made the night before and baked the next morning?

    • Yes it can! I’m doing this for Christmas this year instead of green bean casserole!

      • This looks amazing but some in my family can’t have dairy. Anyone know a good sub for half and half? 

      • Jeb,
        I cannot reply directly to you but I use unsweetened almond milk. Aldi has it for a great price. Less than $2 for a half gallon. I hope you receive this message. 

  90. I love this recipe. It is easy to make. I added some ham and lessened the broccoli. I cut into 4 and figured it was 6 weight watcher points on the pre existing program.

  91. Love this recipe. Can it be frozen? If so, at what temp should it defrost and for how long? Thank you 

  92. can almond or cashew milk be subbed?

    • I love this recipe. It is easy to make. I added some ham and lessened the broccoli. I cut into 4 and figured it was 6 weight watcher points on the pre existing program. I used 1% milk instead of 2% and replaced the cream with milk. 

  93. I want to make this quiche for Thanksgiving ,can I use non dairy creamer instead of milk and half an half?

  94. Perfect, since I hate crust, I make pumpkin custard instead of pie.

    • I have an awesome recipe for crust less pumpkin pie if you want the recipe!!!  Send me your email! 

      This quiche recipe…Omguhhh! My grandma always made the best with such flaky thin crust. This is a great reminder minus the crust and tastes so good!

  95. I’m making this now. I added ground Turkey. The only question I have is can you use heavy cream mixed with water instead of half and half & milk. I’m keto, so I dont use either of those. I’m hoping it turns out.

  96. This was delicious. My family generally hates quiche, but it was a hit! Super easy to make too. A repeat for sure! 

  97. Hubby and I thoroughly enjoyed it and finished it off in one sitting..

  98. Loved it but I add Chicken 
    It was good 

  99. Tried this tonight and added bacon pieces. Delicious! So quick and easy.

  100. Love love you quiche

  101. Just made this and love it!! Rate it 5 star!!

  102. Looks very good!

  103. Can greek yogurt be used in place of half and half??

    • Many people asked if you could substitute greek yogurt for the half and half. I did and it was delicious. I don’t think the texture suffered from it. I also added garlic powder for taste and I totally forgot the nutmeg. It was delicious and my family loved it so I’ll keep doing it that way.

  104. could this quiche be frozen

  105. Really tasty and really enjoyed it 10 out of 10 for this broccoli crust less quiche.

  106. Wow now thats what I call a quiche. I didt use cream, plenty broc,
    And strong cheddar more flavor less cheese.
    I added some garlic powder about a heaped tea spoon.
    Love garlic, so never enough, added extra nutmeg on top, and black pepper.
    With Christmas coming this will definitely be on are table.

  107. Can you lighten it up with some egg whites to replace a few eggs?!

  108. Can you freeze leftovers?

  109. I just made this and it is fantastic! and I’m not that great of a cook. It was super easy. Thank you so much

  110. This turned out great! I have been experimenting with variations and my wife loved this.

  111. This recipe was easy to make, and super yummy.  I have been doing keto for a while now and wanted to change up my diet a little bit when I found this recipe on facebook.  I highly recommend everyone to try it.  This is a winner.

  112. Awesome! Turned out amazing. I also tried with carmeluzed onions, spinach, and gruyere cheese! Again it was really good.

    • Do you think i can add chicken to it too. If so when and how? Does it also change temp and cooking time? Thank you so much!!

  113. Can I substitute the half and half with greek yoghurt and switch out the 2% milk with 1% or skim milk in this recipe?

  114. This was great! I added dehydrated onion like another commenter mentioned and really enjoyed it. My husband liked it too! It had great texture and flavor and was true to the cooking time in the recipe. Will be making this often!

  115. Incredibly easy and delicious, the best kind of recipe. Will be making this one again and again. Used frozen broccoli (slightly defrosted and drained some of the water), and it was still perfection.

  116. Hello
    When you say 4 freestyle points +5what does that mean.? Is it 9 points?  
    Thank you!!

  117. I don’t you milk on keto or 1/2.  I have unflavored almond milk and heavy cream. How much of these should I use instead.  Thanks 

  118. Can this be frozen? I was thinking to cut it in slices and freeze and use as needed. Thanks!

  119. Can this be made with zucchini or yellow squash?

  120. Made this tonight it turned out SO GOOD!! I didnt’ miss the crust at all. I used fat free milk because that’s what I had. I had to increase the cooking time, and I’m not sure if the two are related. I also added a little Candanian bacon and the taste was just wonderful! I’ll be saving this recipe for future use! Yum!!

  121. We tried this today minus the nutmeg (chicken) with mushrooms and onions and bacon bits added.  30 minutes later the verdict was in:  DELICIOUS!  Didn’t miss the crust at all!!!

  122. Excelllent recipes cant to try them all. Thsnk you

  123. Loved it. Next time I’m going to whip the custard mix to make it a little lighter. What do you think?

  124. What is 1/2 and 1/2 cream, sorry I’m in UK. 

  125. Has anyone tried to double the recipe and use a 9” x 13” pan?

    • Would like to know if can be made in 9×13. Casseroles as well…

    • I just did. It turned out perfectly!  350 for 15 minutes. Rotated the pan. 20ish more minutes.  I also used frozen broccoli. I chopped it while frozen, microwaved for 2 minutes. Used a tea towel to squeeze out the excess water.  Perfect result!

  126. This recipe is delicious

  127. We loved this recipe.  Will definitely make again.

  128. Not a fan of broccoli, can I substitute asparagus instead? And FYI’s if I do?

  129. My sister made this for her bridge game brunch. It was loved by all. I’m trying tonight, sure looks good.

  130. Perfect, especially with bacon. 

  131. This recipe was great! As a pro tip, if you want to reduce fat even more, using fat free milk, fat free half in half, and 2% cheese cuts it down to about half the fat! This recipe was really easy to make so have fun! 

  132. I saw this recipe on Facebook today. I prepared it exactly as described. To say it’s delicious is an understatement! Now I am ready to experiment w sausage or ham or whatever suits me that day! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  133. Really delicious.  and so easy.  

  134. What is the difference better Freestyle Points & points.  They seem to have different values in recipes.

    • They are 2 different WW programs, Freestyle is newer and Points + is an older program, the actual points will be different depending on which program you follow.

  135. Can the recipe be cooked in the Instant Pot and if so, for how long? Summer time I eat light but not wanting to heat up the oven.

  136. Can you freeze after cooking crust less broccoli quiche?

  137. Excellent. Good when broccoli slightly

  138. Am I the only one who thinks it was too salty? Otherwise it was delicious. I’m going to eat it, but need extra water to counteract the salt. Lol

    • Are you using table salt or kosher salt? I ask because I use diamond crystal kosher salt. If you use Mortons, it’s twice the sodium. If you use table salt, it will also be too salty.

  139. How would I adapt this to a 6 quart instant pot ?

  140. 1st time making it…Was really easy to make & good! I added bacon crumbles to it. Will be making again!

  141. Just made this quiche it was so delicious! I used sharp white cheddar cheese and dehydrated onion. Will definitely be making this again. I love all your recipes Gina!

  142. Delicious!  Easy to make.  My 6 year old granddaughter asked me to make it again.  

  143. I love this recipe! I’ve already made it twice. I added in some ham the second time I made it. It’s so quick, easy and very delicious!!

  144. Perfect! Follow the recipe exactly. Huge hit. Toddler approved and it reheats well.

  145. This is the first quiche that turned out just right in my oven, which is 11 years old. If I had an unfamiliar oven, I’d go with 30 minutes and then check for doneness, because in mine it seemed almost too dry but was, upon slight cooling, perfect. I added a pinch of cayenne to the custard mix, and some sliced grape tomatoes along the top of the cheese before adding the custard mixture for some acid. My teenage son said this is fine for a repeat!

  146. I added cooked ham and fresh asparagus. I did not precook the asparagus. It was delicious! served it with fresh fruit

  147. This was really good! I used freshly grated cheddar instead of the usual pre-shredded and i think that made a big difference. I was a little short on cheddar so i added some parm and a little feta too. I was worried it would be a little bland with just salt/pepper/nutmeg so i added a hefty amount of onion powder, roasted garlic powder and crushed red pepper and it was fantastic! 

  148. I made this as the recipe. It was good but not great. Very bland. It definitely needs stuff added. I did serve with a few dashes of Tabasco and added a dollop of sour cream on top. Then it was great. Next time I do this recipe I will be adding some heat to the eggs. Great way to use up broccoli which I have a lot of in my garden right now so will make again.

  149. What temperature you use?

  150. I didn’t have milk, so I made almond milk, and admittedly added a bit more cheese. Holy cow was this good. Thank you!

    • Thanks, I was wondering if almond milk would work. I never have milk or cream in the house, just almond or cashew milk. Did you use cream?

  151. I have made this with  cauliflower,  Broccoli and cauliflower mixture,  cauliflower and kale instead of spinach,  I have added mushrooms and red pepper and onion!!!!!!!  I have freeze the slices and I have also made them in the muffin pans it is our go to for breakfast whenever we are in a hurry!!!  It is a hit it with my husband and myself and I also am a weight watcher person! Thank you for the basics of the recipe it is lovely!  Use your imagination when it comes to the cheese you can give make it with Mexican style or you can use the white cheese or you can use the yellow cheese whatever go for it 

    • How was it frozen? Individual slices?

      • I freeze in slices in glass snap ware containers. I thaw in fridge about 24 hours and reheat. It can have some excess moisture but still not bad. I’m the only quiche lover in the house so I usually eat half for a few lunches and freeze three slices for later. 

    • How long did you cook in the muffin tins? And were you using standard size muffin tins?

  152. I love this recipe! Just made with sharp cheddar and added mushrooms. So good!

  153. Can I make this without using the half & half cream? Would I have to add more milk?

  154. Delicious dinner. I doubled this Gina and it was perfect. For a family of five, only one serving left. Some had seconds.

  155. This is a great and easy recipe. I actually baked it in my air fryer in about half the tine. Came out great and is now a go to for an easy breakfast.

  156. This recipe is awesome. Am debating trying it with fresh spinach and feta the next time since I always seem to have leftovers of those 2 items…

    I served this with the bagels and our company loved it.

    • Hi! I haven’t made this but have made quiches before. If you use fresh spinach I’d definitely cook it a little before, until it wilts, and squeeze out the water; otherwise it’ll make your quiche very watery. I think the flavour combination would be great though!

  157. I made this for a special luncheon and it was spectacular. So easy!!!! Great recipe and will be one of my go to recipes from now on. Thanks!

  158. I just made this and WOW! It is amazing! I loved the combination of flavors. It was very satisfying. Can you freeze it? I think next time I might make it in ramekins. I have my Mexican pinto beans cooking now also. I absolutely love your recipes. 

  159. I made this today, using an Italian cheese blend instead of cheddar (because I didn’t realize I was out of cheddar until after I started cooking).  It was delicious! The nutmeg elevated the flavors perfectly. 

  160. I made this for Easter Brunch, and it was a hit! I actually forgot to steam the broccoli, but it ended up having a roasted texture and flavor which I loved. I would make it the same way again! 

  161. fabulous and so easy!  Next time I may try a little siracha and bell pepper.  Made it for easter morning – rave reviews!

  162. This is my go to when I am busy.  It is fast, delicious and easy peasy.  I use frozen broccoli during the winter, when broccoli is quite expensive (in Canada).  Love it.

    • Agree – I microwaved it under cooking time so it was still a little frozen to avoid excess water i the quiche.  So yummy.

  163. Can this be made the day before and reheated 

  164. has anyone tried making this as individual quiche’s. In muffin cups? Would it freeze? To the almond milk users……have you ever seen an udder on an almond? lol

  165. This was delicious! I will be heading back to the store for more broccoli for another batch. Thank you for the recipe!

  166. This was so easy, quick and delicious!!
    Sad I can’t get it to print for my files!!

  167. this was fabulous, and when i entered the ingredients into the recipe builder i got the 4 points – will definitely make this again –

  168. Can i just add milk ? Without half and half cream.? 

  169. I used 2 cups of steamed broccoli and 1 cup raw spinach.  It was delicious!  Will definitely make again.  Thanks for the crustless  version.

  170. Instead of the half and half cream can I use Greek yoghurt?

  171. My husband and I are doing keto and cannot have milk…. do you think just using cream would work? almond milk?

  172. Delicious breakfast that is even better reheated because it’s so fast heating leftover.

  173. Love this recipe and have made it a few times. So easy & quick and not to mention-DELICIOUS!!! When I don’t have brocolli on hand, I just switch it up with other veggies. Today I made it with spinach, mushrooms,onoins and red peppers. I just sauted veggies first and then followed recipe!  Thanks for a no crust quiche that is perfect for my Keto Lifestyle!

  174. This was delicious! Thank you!!

  175. yum yum! i didn’t have milk so just used cream and about a tablespoon of water (prorably not necessary). oh, and a baked chicken breast i had in the fridge. and of course, i added more cheese :0

  176. This was a huge hit with my partner who is on a ketogenic diet. I added soy chorizo from Trader Joe’s using only half of the tube and it was amazing! Still vegetarian and packed with protein. Thanks for this recipe!

  177. Is this o e that I can put together today and refrigerate overnight to cook tomorrow?

  178. I would like to cut down on the whole eggs, how many egg whites?

  179. Just made this for Saturday breakfast. Delicious and light! Will be making this again!

  180. Hi can I use heavey cream instead of half and half?

  181. Hi Gina, Can I use spinach instead of brocolli? If so, is there anything different I have to do? Thanks so much.

    • I’m not Gina but I just made this tonight with spinach. I wilted it in a pan with a tsp of oil first to get the water out of it, and then just followed the rest of Gina’s recipe as written.

  182. Can I use egg whites?

  183. A huge hit at home. Made it last week and it was requested again this week. And so quick to make. Win/win.

  184. Out of curiosity, when I enter this into the WW calculator, it comes up as 6 SP under the Freestyle program. How come yours shows 4? My sister in law made this recipe for brunch and it was amazing. I also made it this past weekend and it is still a favorite. Just curious.

    • Hi Kellie! Are you using the recipe builder? The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

    • I love this recipe! Would I be able to prep the quiche one day earlier and then bake?

  185. Wonderful recipe! I had leftover mushrooms so I sliced them up and added to the broccoli to steam. Yummy!

  186. I made it for our no meat Friday during lent and it was delicious.
    We will have the leftover for tomorrow’s breakfast!

  187. This “quiche” is delicious and so easy to make. I used all cream (for low carb) and thinned it with a little water. I had leftovers for two days and it was just as good reheated a couple of days later.

  188. Have you made this in advance and reheated for a crowd? Any tips/suggestions? Many thanks.

  189. Can I cook the broccoli in water in a pot for 2 mins instead of the microwave?

  190. Can it be make in square dish to be vut into pieces? How long to bake?

  191. Sounds good..but I am allergic to cheese..what can be used instead

  192. Looks amazing! Has anyone made and frozen it? 

  193. Recipe looks delicious but I went to my WW website and “created this recipe” and it still comes up 6 points. Still worth it and I can tweek by subing ff ingredients .

  194. I don’t have fresh nutmeg. How much of the canned spice should I use? 

  195. This sounds delicious! If I were to convert them to mini egg cups (using a mini muffin tin) to bring to a breakfast work party how long do you think they should be baked for? Thanks!

  196. Do we have to use nutmeg? 

  197. I love that your recipes use things that I almost always have on hand. It makes my meal prep so much easier.

  198. Would this freeze well?

  199. Thanks you so much for posting the most recent comments first with older ones to follow!!  Soooo much easier to reference each new recipe.  Thanks again!!

  200. YUM! Just made this as a quick lunch because I had and extra crown of broccoli; it was SO GOOD! I ate 2 slices :). Made with just 2% milk since I didn’t have the half and half; but still turned out delicious. Taking the leftovers for work lunch tomorrow.

  201. Made this last night; subbed almond milk for 2% and canned coconut milk for the half and half (still used cheese though!) – fantastic! I’m terrible at preparing breakfast and usually skip it, but this helped a lot for the week. Always love your recipes, Gina! 🙂

  202. I’ve made a million different egg dishes over the years, but this one HITS THE SPOT. I’ve made it twice in the last three days! Nutmeg… who would have thought. I used whole milk instead of the 2% and half/half combo, just because that’s what I had on hand. SO SIMPLE, so fast, so filling and so delish. My 5 year old, who won’t touch anything that even remotely looks like a casserole, was eating it straight out of the baking dish.

  203. Fixed this for dinner tonight. So easy and good. Husband liked it and there are two slices left for breakfast this week, so this is a double winner!  Also made roasted baby potatoes with rosemary to go with it. 

  204. This is a keeper added alittle onion and 4 pieces of bacon!

  205. Made this for a side dish tonight. It was a huge success. Looking forward to the leftovers. Thank you! 

  206. If I’m using 2% only (no half and half), how much total 2% should be added? Thanks!

  207. My fiancé forwarded and I have played around with it.  Subbed in some just glazed onion (1/2 tsp olive oil & 1/3 med yellow onion),  1/4 cup chopped bacon, 3/4 cup chopped mushroom, 1 – 1 1/2 cup chopped broccoli.  I split into muffin pan, (12x).  350 for 23-25 min.  Bagged and threw in freezer…crazy good, and much cheaper both calorie/carb and $$$ than Starbucks Egg Bites…

  208. I have a question — I am on keto and want to use Heavy Whipping Cream instead of the milk & 1/2 n 1/2. How much would I use then of the HWC ??

  209. I’ve never had success making a quiche until I used this recipe. Thank you Gina! I’m making it for the 2nd time this week to take to a brunch. Our family LOVES Skinnytaste!

  210. Can I use frozen broccoli? If so, is it best to thaw then put in pan?

  211. Gina, unless you specify low-fat cheddar cheese this recipe calls for regular cheddar cheese right?

  212. I made this this morning and it turned out great!! 

  213. I only have skim milk in the house so I switched the amounts for the half and half and the milk the recipe called for. My former chef hubby was very impressed. He reguested that we must have this again. It’s a win!

  214. Looks delicious.. what size dish did you use?

  215. Fabulous! I decreased broccoli by about half and added 2 links tomato-basil chicken sausage, and I used a blend of mild cheddar/sharp cheddar/parmesan to equal 1.cup. Next time I’ll also add some mushrooms and diced red pepper. Craveable!

  216. love his recipe!! turned out great.

  217. Delicious, easy and versatile!

  218. Can this be made with egg whites,?

  219. Just made this and it is wonderful ! So easy. Will make it again.

  220. I followed her recipe exactly EXCEPT I only had fat free half and half but this quiche is delicious. I do NOT miss a crust! So good. I think that dash of nutmeg really put it over the top for taste. Thanks Gina!

  221. Do you think you could use egg beaters instead of whole eggs? 

  222. I made this exactly as instructed and it was absolutely scrumptious!!!!!

  223. So easy and delicious! Such a quick breakfast and really, any time of the day snack!

  224. here in Australia we don’t have half and half cream. what might be a possible substitute for this? thank you

  225. I made this yesterday for this week’s breakfasts. I did use skim milk and fat free half and half but OH MY WOW is this great! It feels like such a cheat this all the cheese. Like other posters said I am shocked by the amount of flavor from such simple ingredients. Thank you!

  227. Do you think this would work with a ground chicken crust? I’m hoping to add more protein to make it more filling without adding a lot of points.

    • I’m not sure what you mean by ground chicken crust. However, I have made quiche with added diced cooked chicken or turkey breast if you would like to add protein. Here is a recipe for reference where I did that. Chicken Quiche.

  228. I am confused ~ I use the old WW Smart Points system, it had become second nature and I just never made
    any adjustments for the new WW programs. I am finding recipes in “browse recipes by WW smart points”, but within the recipe, it lists “Freestyle points”. What is the difference, or can I use the values interchangably. Many thanks!

  229. I just made this tonight and oh my God it’s sooo good! For such simple ingredients and preparation I didn’t expect so much flavor. Definitely going in the regular rotation! Thank you Gina!!

  230. Delicious!!! Thank you for the recipe!

  231. I just whipped this up and put it in the oven. So easy!! Thank you 

  232. Wonderful tasting recipe!  My wife and I both went back for another slice.  But when I calculated the Freestyle points with the WW calculator, it came up at 6 points per serving, not 4.

    • Hi Terri!

  233. I just made this. We loved it. One of our friends has cancer and is doing a keto diet. We are signed up for her meal train and will make this for her. We are sure she will enjoy this also.  

  234. I want to make this for my mother in law (age 99) so she can have them periodically for breakfast or lunch.  Can these be frozen successfully if I package them and wrap them individually?

  235. LOved this recipe;easy and delicious!

  236. What temperature and how long to make this in a large air fryer?  Thanks.

  237. I made this for breakfast today using ff milk, ff cheese, and ff 1/2 & 1/2 and it was still delicious!
    AND only 1 WW SmartPoint for 1/4 of the recipe. Wonderful!

  238. Looking forward to making this!
    I will roast the broccoli with some sliced onions first, more flavor in the broccoli, and will use some cottage cheese instead of half and half.

  239. This is a great recipe as is or you can change up the spices/cheeses. So versatile! I added garlic because my family loves garlic and we also crumbled up some bacon in it. Served it alongside a salad with mixed greens, so good!

  240. Holy smokes, you never fail me. This was delicious!!!!!!

  241. I want to try this recipe tonight, it looks delicious and I think it is very useful in my diet plan.

  242. I made this tonight and it was a bit watery. What did I do wrong? It tasted great other than that.

  243. Trying it with Cauliflower rice instead of broccoli. Cooking now…

  244. Very yummy! I left out the nutmeg because my husband doesn’t like it. Broccoli is not my favorite, but I know I should eat it and this was a pleasurable way to get some in!

  245. so good! a family favorite!

  246. This looks great! What would you pair it with if you were serving it for dinner?

  247. Keto question. Can you use heavy cream instead of the other milks?

  248. Delicious and such a lovely, light texture. I added in some cut up ham that I sautéed to bring out flavor. Even my kids my kids ate it, broccoli and all!

  249. Hi

    Can this bee frozen


    Gail Walraed

  250. Has anyone tried this with frozen broccoli?

    I would think if I let it thaw and then add it, it might be ok. Don’t want it too mushy.

  251. I LOVE broccoli and cheese quiche. Just made this and it’s delicious!! Didn’t even miss the crust 🙂 Thanks Gina! Another great recipe that I will be making often. 

  252. Gina: Before making this just have one question can this be made with frozen broccoli? If so, what would be the stream time? 
    Love, love, love your recipes since finding your website (5 yrs ago) 

  253. This looks yummy !!! Have you ever substituted spinach for the broccoil ?? If so any suggestions ?? thanks

  254. Do you know, approximatley, how many WW points this would be?

    • 4 sp per serving. It says in the recipe above.

      • It’s actually 6 SP when you input information into the calculator

      • The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

  255. Can you use frozen broccoli instead of fresh? 

  256. Isn’t a crustless quiche just a frittata?

    • Of course they are similar, but I always start a frittata on the stove and finish it on the oven. I also never add cream to them.

  257. Can’t wait to try this one out ASAP. Do you use regular cheese instead of RF?

  258. Could I use fat free half and half for all instead of regular half and half and milk?

  259. Hi Gina-
    Before I make this one question-only have frozen broccoli available right now. Can this be used & how long would you steam it?
    Love, love, love  your recipes & for the past 3 years (since finding your website) been incorporating them in meal plan. Thank you so much ????

  260. In order to limit dairy could I use nut milk like cashew or almond?

  261. WW had a somewhat similar recipe years ago. It was about 33 years ago. Anyway, the crust was cooked rice molded into a pie plate so it resembled a crust. The filling included flaked (canned) tuna. The rest of the recipe resembles yours. I can’t wait to try this!!

  262. This sounds and looks terrific. I love new ways to get servings of Broccoli in. Can skim milk be used instead of 2%?
