Say goodbye to a stressful morning (and any hungry houseguests) with one of these easy-to-make recipes, most of which require just 10 to 15 minutes of prep time. Then you’ll pop them in the oven and return to your spot on the couch. If crust-free sounds no fun, we feel you, but we promise you won’t miss it at all—the veggies, spices, and cheese more than make up for it in flavor. Did we mention leaving out the crust makes it so much easier to cook? Sounds like heaven to us.
Family members will love this quiche Lorraine, which basically tastes like a healthy Egg McMuffin. The classic breakfast bacon-egg-and-cheese combo loses the crust and mixes whole eggs with egg whites for a lighter version. Swap heavy cream for half and half, skim milk, or your favorite nondairy milk to make it even better for you.
We’re into this quiche recipe because it’s easily adaptable to your guests’ tastes, and to whatever you currently have in the fridge. Whisk together eggs, milk, and your favorite cheese, plus a cup of toppings—spinach, onion, ham, and tomatoes work well, but any meats and veggies will do. Add in a little Parmesan and go to town.
Ditch the serving platter and cook up these mini quiches instead. The ultimate grab-and-go breakfast, these are perfect for feeding crowds, Santa’s reindeer, or bringing to a potluck on Christmas morning. Switch up the flavors and make half the tin veggie friendly, and the other half meaty, with bacon, ham, or turkey sausage. Put cheese on both sides, because, cheese.
With its crunchy bacon bits and creamy avocado baked inside, this crustless quiche recipe reminds us of a club sandwich. Add in mozzarella and you’ve got an ooey-gooey breakfast that practically melts in your mouth. Go ahead and go back for seconds. Your pajamas are loose enough.
The brighter the breakfast, the better, and we don’t mean those unnatural looking colors found inside a Pop-Tart (sorry, Lorelai). Zucchini, squash, and orange bell peppers take this quiche to the next level and will make you feel like summer has come early. Add in garlic, thyme, and Parmesan if you want to boost the flavor.
We’re always looking for ways to add more greens into our meals, and this quiche puts spinach in the spotlight. Eggs, cheddar cheese, and the leafy green blend together for a simple yet filling breakfast of champions. Pro tip: Make sure to drain the spinach before adding it into the eggs, or the excess water will make your quiche runny.
For a salty, savory breakfast, you can’t go wrong with this crimini mushroom and pancetta combo. Add thyme, parsley, and paprika to freshen it up and add a slight kick. Olive oil and a mix of whole eggs and egg whites lighten up this recipe, and with no cheese, milk, or cream called for, your dairy-free friends will be happy.
