About this Ham and Cheese Quiche Recipe

Egg Bake Casserole is a Crustless Quiche Recipe made easily in the Instant Pot.  Breakfast Quiche with Ham and Cheese is really good and packed full of flavors.  It’s an easy recipe to whip up on a weekend morning breakfast and enjoy.  If you are a quiche lover, make sure to try this Instant Pot recipe.

Let’s get specific for a moment.  What is Quiche?  Quiche is an egg bake recipe typically in a pie crust.  There are a variety of add-ins from sweet to savory but regardless, it’s just delicious.  Ham and Cheese Quiche is a traditional favorite for sure, but if you like a little sweet with a little salty, then make sure to check out this Christmas Quiche with cranberries and sausage.  It’s among my favorites all year long.

Quiche is one of those recipes that seems like it might be difficult when really it’s really simple.  For this recipe you whisk eggs and throw in the remaining ingredients.  Then just bake away in the Instant Pot.  You can also bake this in an oven as well and it turns out pretty much the same.  Delicious!

Tips for Perfecting the Perfect Quiche:

There are so many factors that go into making quiche.  One reason why people think making quiche is difficult.  It’s really not difficult, and regardless of the minor problems, it can still taste great.

Why is my Quiche Watery?

Watery Quiche happens for a number of reasons.  When a temperature is too hot for too long the milk and cheese can separate producing a clear watery substance.  It’s easily blotted off with a paper towel if it’s a problem.

What to serve with Crustless Quiche?

We choose to serve crustless quiche with some fresh fruit.  Many choose to eat a crustless quiche for a low carb option so choosing some healthy fruits will add to this protein breakfast.

Is Crustless Quiche Gluten Free?

Yes, it can be.  Many Quiche recipes call for natural ingredients.  Make sure you are using products that are gluten free and this recipe will easily be a favorite for your allergy needs.

What is Crustless Quiche?

Crustless Quiche is the same as an Egg Bake Casserole.  It’s an egg mixture with meat and or vegetables and other ad-ins including milk and cheese and baked without a traditional pie crust.
