Perfect No Crust Quiche Recipe

You don't need me to tell you that the weather has changed and it's getting mighty cold. Problem is I'm already a bit fed up of having soup for lunch to warm me up. So I had a quick shifty at some quick, easy and of course economical recipes to whip up a hot lunch yesterday.

So here's a slightly clipped image of what I made. A crustless quiche. I know I've gone a bit Waitrosey with this, but it's easy on the purse and the hips.

Plus there is hardly any measuring out of ingredients, so it's super speedy and easy. Did I say that already? EASY.

Preheat your oven  to 200 C, get it nice and hot and you'll have a crisp base.

Lightly oil a 9 inch tin, I used one of my Victoria Sandwich tins as I don't have a tart tin. Layer the bottom with some grated cheese, enough to cover it. Then in a separate pan cook off some sliced onions in a little oil. I also added some sliced herbed olives that I had in the fridge. But you could really add anything else you fancy or need to use up. 

Cook until soft, then layer over the grated cheese. Slice some tomatoes and lightly coat them with a little seasoned flour. I added some Italian herbs to my flour. Saute the tomato slices about 1 minute on each side. Then layer them on top of your onions.

In a bowl whisk together 3 eggs and 4 fl oz of skimmed milk and pour over the ingredients, sprinkle a little grated cheese on top and pop in the oven.

Bake for 10 minutes at 200C then reduce down to 180C for about another 10 minutes. It is puffed and golden brown when cooked. Once cooked leave it to cool, and serve warm.

It came out of the tin perfectly cooked and was easy to serve. We had ours with a green salad.

Can I also introduce you to my latest most favourite hot beverage, Twinings Ginger Bread Green Tea? Oh my it's good. Just the smell of it warms me up.


  1. That is a nice easy recipe, a bit like a Spanish fritatta. I'm definitely going to keep an eye out for a lovely tea, just the right flavours for this time of year!
    Stay cosy! x

  2. As Linnet has just noted, it sounds rather like a frittata. Still soup for me at mid-day, plus a little cheese and fruit.

  3. Dick Cheney and George Bush were having breakfast..
    The waitress asked Cheney what he would like.."bowl
    of oat~meal and some fruit please".
    "What can l get for you Mr President. George W. says
    with a wink and a smile.."How about a quickie this morn'in".

    "Why Mr President, how rude, your starting to act like Mr

    As the waitress storms away...Cheney leans forward and
    whispers..."It's pronounced 'quiche'..". :>).

  4. Thanks for sharing the recipe Jean, it looks perfect for a quick but hot lunch.
    That tea sounds amazing! Will be trying that out for sure! I like the Camomile and Spiced Apple at the moment but I havent seen this one.
    Just to let you know the Xmas Fair I'm having a stall at is on Sunday 7th Dec at Brenchey near Tunbridge Wells in Kent - details on my latest blog post.
    Have a great weekend Jean!

  5. That sounds delicious and mainly using ingredients that are in the fridge or the cupboards.
    I bought as much Apple Tea from Turkey as I could fit in my case which I am slowly becoming addicted to.

  6. Looks yummy - although I do like a pastry case myself.

  7. Sounds great, my hips will thank you too!
