This quiche without crustless sausage and spinach with Italian chicken sausage, spinach and cheese is a simple and healthy recipe for breakfast, brunch or dinner.
Crustless sausage and spinach quiche
Spinach and ricotta quiche and chicken quiche are so popular on my website, but I am often asked how to make them crustless. For this low carb version, I did this without a crust, with chicken sausage and spinach. Also, I used some light cream to give the eggs a creamier custard texture, as most quiches tend to have a spongier texture for baked eggs. That turned out to be delicious! It's so easy to make and perfect for any meal of the day. For some more crustless quiche recipes, try my Crustless Quiche Lorraine and Crustless Broccoli Cheddar Quiche.
This crustless sausage spinach quiche is so delicious you won't miss the crust. Skipping the crust saves calories and carbs, and makes this quiche low-carb, keto-free, and gluten-free.
How do you keep a crustless quiche from sticking?
Spraying the cake pan with oil is critical to preventing a crustless quiche from sticking. You can also line the shell with parchment paper.
Can a quiche be made the night before?
Yes, quiche is great for making meals. You can prepare it ahead of time and bake it the next day before you are ready to eat.
What should I serve with quiche?
If you serve quiche for breakfast, serve it with fruit salad or hash browns. For dinner, it goes great with a nice green salad or your favorite vegetables like parmesan crust delicata squash or roasted Brussels sprouts and shallots with a balsamic glaze.
