Spinach and Ricotta Quiche and Chicken Quiche are so popular on my site, but I often get asked how to make it crustless. For this low-carb version, I made this with no crust, with chicken sausage and spinach plus I used some light cream to give the eggs more of a creamier custard texture, as most quiches have rather than a spongier baked egg texture. This turned out delicious! It’s so easy to make and is perfect for any meal of the day.

How do you keep a crustless quiche from sticking?

Spraying the pie dish with oil is critical in preventing a crustless quiche from sticking. You can also line the dish with parchment paper.

Can a quiche be made the night before?

Yes, quiche is great for meal prep. You can make it ahead of time and bake it the next day before you’re ready to eat.

What should I serve with quiche?

If you’re serving quiche for breakfast, serve it with fruit salad or hash browns. For dinner, it’d be great with a nice green salad or your favorite roasted vegetables like Parmesan Crusted Delicata Squash or Roasted Brussels Sprouts and Shallots with Balsamic Glaze.

Italian Sausage Quiche Variations & Tips:

  • Swap the spinach for any wilted greens.
  • Use Romano cheese instead of Parmesan.
  • If you’d like a quiche with crust, you follow this recipe made with pie dough from the supermarket.
  • If you’d like individual portions, make crustless quiche muffins by pouring the egg mixture into a muffin tin. Bake at 350 degrees for 28-30 minutes.
  • Make Ahead – refrigerate the quiche for up to 4 days and reheat in the microwave.
