Crustless Spinach and Bacon Egg Quiche

Please share if you love it!

We’ve added a new member to the family!

Truthfully, Kiery isn’t new. She’s been part of the family for several years now, but she is newly married to our son, so officially she’s new to the family.

The Rimkus clan couldn’t be any happier with our newest addition.

So what does Kiery have to do with today’s recipe?

Much like Mom #2, she loves to cook.

Bacon!

During the holidays, Kiery passed along this delicious crustless quiche recipe from Eating Curiously for me to try.

Dad #2 and I have been skipping the gluten lately, so this crustless quiche fit right into our eating plan.

Naturally, I made a few adjustments so the recipe fit what I had on hand, which included a few slices of smoky bacon.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Who doesn’t love bacon and eggs!

If you’re not eating gluten free or dairy free, swap the gluten free flour for whole wheat flour, and the almond milk with cow’s milk if you prefer.

How lucky could this mother-in-law get! I’ve added a lovely cook to the family, and she’s cooking for my son. It doesn’t get better than that.

Happy, healthy cooking!

Dairy Free Crustless Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Serving Size: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped into small pieces
  • 4 cups baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon thyme
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons Bob's Red Mill gluten free flour
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked, drained and chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a pie plate with cooking spray.
  2. Cook bacon ahead of time. You can microwave it on a plate lined with paper towel until it's crisp if you prefer.
  3. In a large nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat, then add onion and cook for 3 - 5 minutes to soften.
  4. Add spinach, thyme and parsley and cook another 1 - 2 minutes, stirring to mix up the spinach, until it lightly wilts. Remove from heat.
  5. Whip eggs, milk, and flour, then season with salt and pepper.
  6. Layer bacon on the bottom of the pie plate, then add the spinach mixture.
  7. Press the vegetables into the egg mixture and bake for 30 - 40 minutes until quiche is set in the middle and no longer runny.

    Don’t the eggs in this dish make it dairy? If you wanted to truly make this dairy free, I am sure a silken tofu would work :)

    Congrats on the new addition to your family! It’s nice to have something in common with your daughter-in-law, especially cooking! Something you are so passionate about.

    Great recipe. Funny thing is that we only ever have almond milk in the house, so this works well for us.

      I keep a little of both, but I’ve also tried coconut milk on occasion. What do you think of coconut milk? Personally, I prefer the almond when cooking.

    Congrats on the new member in your family! And she certainly provided us with a great recipe – I love the spinach and bacon combo. I might make this quiche without a crust, too, not so much to avoid gluten as to avoid calories! Good stuff – thanks.

    Congrats, Jason and Kiery, and well done Kristi on getting such a gorgeous daughter-in-law who also is a wonderful cook. Good idea to cut out the crust (it can return in February when I’ve lost those Christmas pounds!) Happy New Year to you and yours, Hester x
