Crustless Quiche Lorraine

Servings 8 Slices
Calories 271kcal

Ingredients

  • 8 Pieces Bacon sliced into 1/2" strips
  • 1/2 Cup Yellow Onion chopped
  • 1 Leek thinly sliced + carefully cleaned. White + pale green parts only (note 1)
  • 1 Cup Mozzarella grated and divided (Swiss is more traditional, but we prefer mozzarella)
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • Dash of Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • Pinch Ground Nutmeg

Instructions

  • Prep. Heat oven to 375 F and grease a 9” pie pan, or oven-safe skillet (quiche/tart pan won’t work for this quiche).
  • Crisp + saute. In a large skillet, add bacon (8 pieces sliced) and cook over medium heat until crispy. Place cooked bacon on a paper towel lined plate to absorb excess grease. Add chopped onion (1/2 cup) and thinly sliced leek (1), and cook until softened, about 8 minutes.
  • Whisk. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs (6 large), heavy cream (1 cup), salt (1/2 teaspoon), dash of pepper, cayenne pepper (1/4 teaspoon) and a pinch of nutmeg until combined. Stir in the cheese (1 cup). Once cooled, stir in bacon, onions, and leeks.
  • Bake + enjoy. Pour quiche into the greased pan, and bake for 20-25 minutes. You'll know the quiche is done once the edges begin to brown and the center is firm. Allow quiche to cool for 10 minutes before slicing, and enjoy!

Notes

  1. Cleaning leeks - Leeks have a tendency to store loads of dirt. I always slice them very thin, break them apart, then soak them in a bowl of water. Rinse in a colander, then dry thoroughly before sauteing.
  2. Craving crust? This quiche can be made inside my low carb pie crust -- just increase the bake time by 10 minutes, or until the center sets.
  3. Double the recipe and bake this quiche inside a casserole dish to feed a crowd!
