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.
