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.

This quiche is low-carb, keto, gluten-free and easy! Add a salad on the side and it’s the perfect vegetarian lunch.

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. This is my “go to” recipe for guiltless quiche. It’s always well received by my family and guests.

  2. Everyone who eats this quiche loves it!! It’s so simple to make I don’t even mind (much) when I’m asked to make it again Making it tomorrow for friends who are eating keto. 

  3. 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.
