Really EASY and mini crustless spinach quiche recipe that you will love. Makes a great appetizer, kids love them, and perfect for parties.
I cook crustless spinach quiche a few times a month. Yes even my kids love it now. It took several times of serving it and calling it “cheese pie”, but not it’s one of our all time favorite meals! I make “regular” spinach quiche as well but this is a fun way to mix it up. (affiliate links present, originally published 12/18)
If you’ve read my blog for any time you know I am a little obsessed with my muffin pan! I love making anything in smaller sizes. They cook faster and kids think it’s “fun”!! When it comes to quiche the same applies, plus it is great to serve as an appetizer when people come over. All you have to do is use a mini muffin pan that is non stick.

Yes I have made this whole in a pie dish as well and I have a link to that one above the top photo. Without the crust I think it works better this way. You get a nice firmer edge all the way around the circle of it this way, but can still skip the extra calories and carbs.
Muffin Tin Quiche
The recipe for the crustless spinach quiche mixture is super easy, you can follow or print it out below. It is really a quick recipe to throw together, low in carbs if you are concerned with that and really tasty! We pair it with some sliced sausage or just have another veggie on the side and call it dinner!
- 3 eggs
- 10 oz. or 1 package of frozen Green Giant heated as directed on the back
- 1 cup of shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 tbsp bacon bits optional
- 3-4 diced mushrooms optional
- A pinch of salt and pepper is nice too
If you want to make a “regular” quiche just use the same recipe, add it to a pie crust shell and cook for closer to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Want to use broccoli instead maybe? NO problem, we recently made a crustless broccoli quiche recipe too.
Looking to make your own filling but need to know how to cook frozen spinach to get it going? I just wrote an article on how to thaw it quickly. You can make fresh spinach into creamed for this, directions for that below. I like the already done type in the freezer and I just microwave it to defrost.
Crustless Spinach and Bacon Quiche
Frozen prepackaged by Green Giant works, or make your own homemade creamed spinach in a large skillet on the stove. This is what they should look like when you take them out. You want them to feel slightly firm in the center but not really browned as they will end up a bit overcooked if you do that.
- Shred the swiss cheese, add 3 eggs and other ingredients into the bowl. Whisk the egg mixture together.
- Microwave the package of creamed spinach according to the directions and add that too. OR make 10 oz. of homemade creamed spinach
- Spray muffin tin with non stick spray.
- Fill mini muffin tin cups with spinach mixture, about 3/4 full
- Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes or until lightly brown.
I just use a spoon to scoop them out after they have rested in the pan for about 10 minutes. That will allow each to solidify a bit more before removing. You can try it differently and make this mini quiche recipe or one with a tater tot pie crust sometime too. The below uses a regular pie pan so it’s larger.
What you would typically see when made as a brunch recipe served in a pie plate, it is a great as well. If you do have leftovers they keep and reheat quite well. Just wrap each one in plastic wrap after they have cooled. Store in the fridge overnight and heat in the microwave again for about 45 seconds to enjoy again.
Keto Crustless Spinach Quiche
You can print Crustless Mini Quiche recipe below and get started right about now. This easy recipe has a few adjustments that can be made if you would like. A few we have tried and enjoyed would be to add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for heat, or bacon bits for a bit of meat.
Another idea is to dice up what you have left and throw it into a pan with some hashbrowns or diced potatoes. Make a sort of breakfast stir fry of sorts. Make more scrambled eggs and add this in chopped up for a bit of veggies with a dash of hot sauce. Makes another great 2nd or 3rd meal. You know how I hate wasting food so I always have ideas galore. 😉
Give it a whirl and let us know what you think of it. If you add something else into the mix let us know so we can try it in our next batch!
