Janet's Crustless Quiche

This recipe was originally posted by Janet in October 2008's What's for Dinner:

Crustless Quiche

4 eggs
1 can evaporated milk
6 oz of baby swiss cheese..shredded
Dash salt, pepper & cayenne pepper
Bacon-cook & crumble 10-12 slices of bacon.
(according to your preference)
1/4 cup green onion sliced small
1/4 cup of chopped green pepper

Heat oven to 425º

Prepare a pie pan by spraying it with Pam Spray. Next you add the cooked & crumbled bacon, 1/2 of the cheese, green onion, &chopped green pepper.

In a small mixing bowl..whisk together the eggs & evaporated milk. Add salt, pepper and cayenne pepper.

Pour egg mixture over the ingredients already in the pie pan.

Place in 425ºoven for 15mins...then reduce heat to 300º for 30mins.

Test for doneness by inserting a knife(paring knife) in the center..if it comes out clean it is done.

Let it set 10 mins, before cutting into pie shapes.

You can substitute chicken, pork, turkey bacon, ham, and also add things like spinach too.

Never made a crustless quiche before it was easy to mix and a good recipe you could
pop many things in.
This recipe made a nice light moist Quiche. I made mine with half chopped cooked chicken and half bacon.
I was hoping like mad that our evaporated milk cans were the same size as the US ones and as it turned out good, I'm guessing they are.
I served mine with a tossed lettuce and tomato salad.
We like quiche here I usually call it an egg and whatever pie fore the blokes, who don like to think they are eating girlie food LOL

Congrats Janet & Bilby. I make this alot, but never called anything but an omelet LOL. I don't use the cayenne pepper in mine, but sometimes put chopped pimentos in it. Sometimes I put it in a cake pan & then cut circles out with a bisquit cutter or glass & then put on toasted bagels.

This quiche is cooked in the oven Minny I cook an omelette on a stove top in a fry pan, but I guess it's anyway and anyhow you want it .LOL
It was also lower in calories due to lack of cream like the other quiches and the crust and that appealed to me.

Kathy, I've cooked alot of them in the oven this way. When I worked at the nursing home, we did them that way so we had time to work on another part of the meal. It was easier to cut the servings in squares. Whether in a pie pan or cake pan , it still tastes the same to me lol.

Minny,

Quiche is served as a first course in many fine restaurants..along with a cup of French Onion soup.
Usually it has a crust..so it is like a Egg Pie or Tart that you layer and add things like bacon, cheese, ham, seafood, veggies(spinach is great). I like the Crustless one, for it is lighter, and not soggy..Hate soggy food, and I use evaporated milk..which is not as fattening as the rich cream they use in a traditional Quiche.

An Omelet is beaten eggs or an egg mixture cooked until just set; may be folded around e.g. ham or cheese or jelly..and made on the
stove top. They even have omelet pans to make it easier.

I am making quiche today...and I find a dash of cayenne pepper..is not overpowering...I use powdered...not bottled.

Thanks for the award Family Corner!
Janet

Minny, you are so funny!

I was first introduced to Quiche in the 70's in a restaurant in Indianapolis, IN.
Loved it then and still now.

My quiche today came out perfect. It makes a nice brunch.

Presentation of the dish is important too.

Janet
