Crustless Quiche March 10, 2006Posted by thelazychef in Uncategorized.
I love quiche.
I can eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Why? Cos it has eggs in ‘dem! Haha… I guess I just love eggs alot.
This recipe is tried and tested. MANY TIMES. Cos its so yummy! And everyone loves it. Once, i had friends staying over and I had to bake 2 huge ones to satisfy them!
But the main reason why I love this particular recipe is because, its doesn’t have a crust! So, i get an even greater bite of all the ingredients and the egg base! And yes, because i’m so lazy, i don’t have to roll the dough for the crust! hehe… And another reason? I am on a low-carbo diet, so this is something I can indulge in without worrying too much(as compared to the muffins and cakes!)! haha…
Well, I have been getting requests from friends and passers-by from my blog, for the recipe of this quiche. So, i decided, why not post it here and share it with everyone else. Good things are meant to shared anyway right?
1. 1/2 cup Bisquick
2. 1 cup milk (I use fresh milk)
3. 2 Eggs
4. 1/8 teaspoon freshly milled black pepper
5. 1/4 teaspoon saltIngredients for quiche:
1. 1 tomato, sliced thinly
2. 1/2 cup mushrooms (those canned button mushrooms will do), sliced into 4s.
3. 1 big onion, sliced thinly
4. 3~4 slices of honey baked ham, sliced into 1 inch by 1/2 inch size.
5. 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
6. 1/3 cup cheddar cheese
1. Heat oven to 200ºC. Grease a 9-inch flan/pie dish. Arrange in layers the ham,mushrooms, tomatoes, onion and cheese.
2. Combine all the ingredients from the egg base in a large bowl and mix well.
3. Bake for about 35 minutes or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean and golden brown.
Sometimes, i like to add in an extra dash of milk and an extra egg cos i like my quiche to be a little thicker.
I always have left over cream cheese lying in the fridge every once in a while, and i normally mix in about 2-3 table spoons of cream cheese into the egg base. Makes the quiche a little wetter when baked but its more fragrant.
You can play around with the ingredients in this recipe. Add cooked bacon instead(but remember to cut out the salt cos the bacon is normally very salty!), add in bell peppers, spinach… etc…
I have tried using many different cheeses in the process of experimenting. And i have found out that purely using cheddar cheese would make it a tad bitter because of the nature of the cheese. Purely using mozzarella cheese is nice if you do not like the strong smell of cheese, but for me, since i love cheese, i find it a little bland if i only use mozzarella. Swiss cheese is also another cheese that goes well with this dish. Experiment yourself and decide which one you prefer better! And yes, by all means, add MORE cheese if you like!!!
