An easy to make crustless spinach quiche with eggs, onion and plenty of Muenster cheese

If you’re trying to cut carbs to regulate your glucose, or if you’re going gluten free or grain free, this Crustless Spinach Quiche recipe for you. It’s easy and delicious, and trust me, you won’t miss the crust at all. After all, what’s in the usual pie crust?  It’s only flour, lard and water, so you’re not missing much in the way of nutrients or flavor.

This quiche makes for a nutrition packed breakfast, lunch or anytime snack.  You can take it on the go or eat it leisurely at home with your morning coffee.  Either way, it’s not only delicious, but nutritious as well.

Ok, without further adieu, here’s the recipe:

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon either Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Pure Coconut Oil
  • 1 Chopped Onion
  • 1 (10oz package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained) or 10oz fresh spinach, chopped
  • 5 beaten Eggs
  • 3 Cups Shredded Muenster Cheese*
  • 1/4 teaspoon unrefined sea salt or Himalayan pink salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

*I’ve used Colby Jack cheese, cheddar cheese and other hard cheeses with remarkable success.  So, no muenster cheese?  No problem!

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9-inch pie pan.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. Stir in spinach and continue cooking until excess moisture has evaporated.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, cheese, salt and pepper. Add spinach mixture and stir to blend. Scoop into prepared pie pan.

Bake in preheated oven until eggs have set, about 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

I’ve served this for lunch with a tossed green salad.  It’s also great as a quick on the go breakfast.  Grab a slice of quiche on your way out the door.   My grandson loves this and I’ve packed it as part of his lunch for school.  He doesn’t like vegetables usually and this has been a great way to get him to eat his spinach.

So, try it!  I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.
