Crustless Quiche Lorraine

Jodi Pudge

Omitting the pastry means this crustless quiche lorraine has all the flavour of the original, but with far fewer calories. For the ideal texture, make sure to let it rest before serving.


  • 1 cup chopped Black Forest ham
  • 1 1/2 cups grated Emmental
  • 1 green onion , finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • oil , or butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup 35% cream
  • 3/4 cup 3.25% milk


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Chop ham into ¼-in. cubes. Place in a bowl with cheese and onion; sprinkle with flour. Toss to coat evenly. Prepare a 9- or 10-in. pie plate by coating with oil or butter, then turn ham mixture into it. In same bowl, whisk eggs. Add cream and milk; whisk until evenly mixed. Pour egg mixture over pie plate. Use a fork to distribute ingredients evenly. Place pie plate on a baking sheet.
  • Bake in centre of oven until top is lightly golden and egg is slightly jiggly but set in centre, 40 to 45 min. Remove to a rack to cool. Let stand for at least 30 min before slicing and serving. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature.
