This is the best and CREAMIEST crust-less quiche I've ever eaten and I eat a lot of quiche! I asked my friend, Michele, to share her recipe with Zaar and she was kind enough to oblige. Thanks, girlfriend! Top this yummy quiche with tinned asparagus, chopped bacon, or tinned salmon. It makes it's own "crust" as it cooks. Very nice with a green salad on the side.

I really enjoyed this recipe, thanks much! I sauteed 1 medium onion and about 10 oz of fresh spinach. Added a smidge of nutmeg. Mixed onion / spinach and chopped swiss cheese to the egg/milk/flour mixture. Baked at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes. The flour made a nice thin 'crust' and I thought it was excellent. Will use this again - trying other veggie / meat combos!
I was looking for a basic recipe to adapt to some leftover things we had in the fridge. This is a great find and will be a regular in our household. I used the same basic recipe, but substituted fat-free evaporated milk for the regular milk (I always do this in quiches for some reason). We didn't have self-raising flour, so I used a half cup of regular flour plus a half tsp of baking powder. For the add-ins, I used goat cheese, green onions, and broiled salmon that we had on hand. Excellent recipe!
This recipe was quick and simple, and a great way to use whatever veggies I have on hand. I've made this twice, the first time with asparagus, spinach, cheddar, and feta cheese, and the second time with broccoli, spinach, cheddar and parmesan. Both times I substituted a couple tbsp olive oil for the butter and added some dill, and both times it came out PERFECT. Delicious flavor, very moist and fluffy. This will be my go-to base quiche recipe. I think I'll try it with salmon and spinach next. Thanks for posting.
