Crustless Ham and Cheese Quiche

This quiche is keto, gluten-free and easy to make! Add a salad on the side and it’s the perfect light meal. Of course, you can use any cheese you wish here, or leave the ham out like I did in this Crustless Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche. If you want a quiche with crust, you may also like this Spinach and Ricotta Quiche and this Chicken Quiche which are so popular on my site.

I created this recipe with leftover Easter ham in mind. Since it’s low-carb and uses no crust, I’ve added a little light cream to give the eggs more of a creamier custard texture, as most quiches have rather than a spongier baked egg texture like a frittata.

Ham and Cheese Quiche Variations:

  • You can swap the ham for bacon or sausage.
  • Any cheese would work great here. Try this with mozzarella cheese, Gruyere or cheddar cheese in place of Swiss.
  • 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.
  • Refrigerate 3 to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave or oven.

  1. I love this recipe! I like to add more broccoli or other veggies, though. Can you tell me how to add one more cup of veggies to this recipe on the WW app?

  2. I made this for dinner last night.  It is the best quiche I have ever made.  Since I did add the ham which is very salty, next time I will not add any salt.  Had quiche for breakfast this morning. It’s delicious. I would definitely serve this for brunch or for company at any time.  So easy and a great way to stretching the food budget as well….

  3. I used 3 eggs and two egg whites in lieu of 5 eggs. Substituted non fat half and half for the half and half. Substituted 5 oz. baby spinach sautéed in 1/2 cup of onions in lieu of broccoli. Added 2 tablespoons of Dijon honey mustard. Used Mexican cheese blend in lieu of Swiss cheese. Delicious! 

  4. Thanks for this delicious recipe. 
    Love your pie dish where did you buy it ?

    Best wishes,
    Iveta

  5. It was delish. Didn’t change a thing!

  6. Has anyone tried freezing this dish?  Curious as to results?

  7. I used almond milk and would only use half called for next time as it took a long time for the center to cook.   Subbed asparagus and it was delicious.
