Looking for something new and tasty for breakfast, lunch, or dinner? These quiche recipes will hit the spot.

 

If your idea of quiche is a delicate lunch with the ladies, think again–it’s a delicious and economical way to eat and leaves plenty of leftovers.

Start with eggs and/or egg whites and include your favorite fillings and seasonings and you’ll have a baked breakfast, lunch, or dinner in under an hour. If you want the full homemade experience, you can even make your own dough and keep it refrigerated or frozen.

And when I say “your favorite fillings and seasonings,” I mean it. You can make mouthwatering quiche with a wide variety of ingredients ranging from the obvious choices like bacon, sausage, and cheese to the more creative like pancetta, sweet potato, salmon, and avocado.

No matter what ingredients you have to use up in your fridge, chances are you can toss them into a healthy quiche – with or without crust.

Spinach, Feta & Asparagus Quiche

Serves 8

There’s just something about the way asparagus and eggs taste together. And although it’s indescribable, there’s no doubt the combo can convert even stubborn veggie avoiders. The asparagus ends up with a buttery texture. Any bitter earthy flavors will fade away as the quiche cooks, bringing out its slight sweetness.

Pancetta Mushroom Crustless Quiche

Serves 6

Although it would be good with criminis alone, this mushroom quiche is even better with salty pancetta.

It comes from pork belly, but while it’s cured like bacon, it’s not smoked. It also tends to be thicker so you get big meaty pieces to sink your teeth into. That means there can be less of it without less flavor, keeping this crustless quiche not only low in carbs but in total fat too.

Slow Cooker Ham & Cheese Quiche

Serves 10

There’s no need to worry about rolling out the perfect circle of dough. Instead, make Crock Pot quiche. The dough will still need to be rolled out a bit, but then it’s pressed into the bottom of the slow cooker. So there’s no way to get it all smoothed out, which means you can rest easy while it cooks.

Your delicious quiche will be ready in three hours.

Crustless Cheesy Sausage Quiche

Serves 6

What makes this quiche surprisingly low-calorie? It has no crust, but that doesn’t mean it’s like an omelette or frittata.

In short, what if I told you that proper dieting--whether you want to maximize fat loss or muscle growth--is much simpler and more enjoyable than you’ve been led to believe?

Imagine eating delicious, filling meals every day...never feeling starved or stuffed...having great energy levels and workouts...and watching your body respond exactly as you desire, dropping fat or adding muscle each and every week.
