A Pair of Crustless Quiches Part One: Spinach Tomato Quiche

Quiche is the classic brunch dish. It was definitely featured in this gluten-free mommy’s Easter brunch feast. Since we were feeding thirteen and variety is the spice of life, my mother and I made a pair of quiches. Our dueling quiches (everything is a competition) were definitely a hit with the crowd. There was not a single slice left of either quiche. I made the Spinach Tomato Quiche- the clear favorite. haha

My mother contributed the Crab Quiche in the next post, which we adapted from her 1985 Deep Dish Crab Pie recipe. She has vowed a rematch. I look forward to it!

  1. Looks yummy!

    I will have to try that crab one sometime…I am not sure that my children would eat it…but you have a great idea here…just make a smaller one for them…

    Leftover quiche is a wonderful thing!!!

  2. Crab Quiche is a good one for company. My husband did manage to get my toddler to eat some of the crab quiche, but he is going through the bottomless pit phase right now. He will eat anything!

  3. This was very tasty. My husband and I finished the whole quiche in one sitting!

    One note, you forgot to mention when to add the spinach in the recipe instructions. I just put them on before the tomatoes, since that’s what it looked like in the picture, and it turned out great.

  4. I am glad you liked it! Thanks for the note, I will go back and add in the instructions for the spinach!

  6. I tried this recipe the first time I made this but the texture left a little to be desired. This time instead of putting the cheese on the bottom, I baked the mixture without the cheese then applied cheese mixture & turned on the broiler. Voilà! Crispy & delicious :)
