This Crustless Ham and Spinach Quiche is an easy and delicious breakfast. It requires just 5 main ingredients and takes all of 10 minutes to prepare. It's gluten free, packed full of protein, and so satisfying. You won't even know it's healthy!

Ingredients

Units Scale
  1. 1 1/2 cups Whole Milk
  2. 2 ounces (approximately 1/2 Cup) Shredded Havarti Cheese
  3. 1 1/2 Teaspoons Seasoned Salt
  4. 1/2 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  5. 6 Eggs
  6. 1 cup Diced Ham
  7. 1 10 ounce Package Chopped, Frozen Spinach- Thawed and wrung out of excess water

Instructions

  1. Thaw the spinach and wring it out with a paper towel or tea towel to remove all of the excess water
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and take out a 9 inch pie plate
  3. In a small pot, over low heat, combine milk, shredded Havarti cheese, seasoned salt, and pepper. Cook that until the cheese has melted
  4. While the milk mixture is on the stove, whisk the eggs in a large bowl and then add the chopped ham and squeezed out spinach into the eggs
  5. Once the milk is heated and the cheese is melted, temper the hot milk into the egg mixture. To do this, whisk constantly as you pour a little bit of milk into the eggs, until all of the milk is incorporated.
  6. Pour the crustless quiche custard into your pie plate and bake for 45 minutes
  7. After 45 minutes, check the quiche. If it's still jiggly in the center add 5 minutes at a time until it is fully set and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean
  8. Pull theΒ  quiche out of the oven and let it cool for at least 20 minutes before serving it. (quiche will deflate, and that is ok)

Notes

  • Really wring out the excess water from the spinach, if not you'll end up with a watery quiche
  • Don't use non fat milk or a non dairy milk ! You can go down to 2%, but whole milk or cream is best
  • Use cheddar cheese in place of the Havarti if you can't find it
  • Eliminate the ham from this recipe and you've got a beautiful gluten free, vegetarian quiche!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days
  • Make the filling the night before and bake in the morning
