I absolutely love quiche – but it can be a little time consuming to make, especially when pie crust is involved! But today’s Crustless Ham and Cheddar Quiche is the best of both worlds – simple to make but still with a delicious, cheesy quiche flavor!
It’s similar to a traditional quiche recipe – filled with diced ham, onions, carrots and cheddar cheese – but this crustless ham and cheddar quiche bakes up light and puffy in the oven thanks to the addition of baking mix in the batter!
It’s perfect for a quick family meal – and any leftovers make a delicious lunch on the go! We used the homemade baking mix recipe that we shared yesterday to make this easy crustless ham and cheddar quiche – but feel free to use a boxed baking mix if you prefer. You can also swap in different meats and vegetables to make this recipe your own. Enjoy!
