Reviews forCrustless Spinach Quiche
"So easy, so good.. love quiche but because of crust I never made it. Follow recipe for first time before improvising. I did use fresh spinach though."
"For the person who wanted a crust; Try Frozen shredded hash browns. Place these thawed in a sprayed pie plate....probably metal. Spread the hash browns in a flat thin layer over the bottom, and up the sides a little. bake it at appx 375 till golden .Then remove from oven and turn oven back down to 350. OR use an oven proof skillet. Brown the shredded hash browns in the bottom of the (9 to 10 inch ) pan.( with oven proof handles) Add in the egg mixture .bake as directed. I have not actually done this, but it should work. You could also check on line for "Impossible pie" recipes by Bisquick. Then estimate how much Bisquick you might need. Those Impossible pie recipes make their own thin crust layer as they bake.Just remember that these ideas add carbs and calories. bake times MAY vary too. Personally, I think this quiche is fine without a crust....(which is kinda the point of this piticular recipe)"
"This is a wonderful recipe. It is great as leftovers, re-heats beautifully! I used pepperjack cheese, to give it a little kick. I'll make this again!"
"Delicious. Amazing how much flavor this has. I also used fresh, steamed spinach. I'll certainly make this again."
"We're watching carbs so this was the perfect meal for us tonight! It was very easy to prepare. I used fresh spinach, it's what I had on hand. Eyeballed the amount that my DH would approve of! Added a little minced garlic and LOTS of pepper. I'll make this again! I like the suggestion of using sausage, maybe next time. This is a great base for a lot of variations."
"I used fresh spinach as that is what I had on hand. This was a keeper. Every member of my family liked it. No leftovers!!"
"How can a one-eighth serving of this quiche be only 255 calories when a one-eighth serving of the amount of cheese specified is 312 calories"
"Excellent recipe. Next time I'm going to eliminate the ham as I don't believe the taste would be impacted by it, and it would cut down on the amount of sodium."
"My family liked it. Simple recipe and easy to follow"
