Crustless Ham and Cheddar Quiche

Crustless Ham and Cheddar Quiche - A Family Feast

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!

Crustless Ham and Cheddar Quiche - A Family Feast

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!

Crustless Ham and Cheddar Quiche - A Family Feast

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!

  26. Would love to try this-is there any way to make it without making such a big batch of the baking mix because I don’t know what else I would use it for.

    • Hi KC – If you have boxed Bisquick already you can substitute that. Otherwise, you could try cutting the baking mix recipe in half or even thirds to make less. The baking mix can be used to prepare pancakes, biscuits, pizza crust, or any other recipe you would typically use with Bisquick. Hope that helps!

  27. Made this delicious dish last night and loved it! So often, quiche doesn’t have enough of the cheesy goodness to suit me, but yours definitely did! And, we loved the carrots in it! I had some asparagus ( so good this time of the year) so I added it. The resulting “batter” looked a little heavy on ingredients, so I added another egg and a little more milk. It came out perfect! If others add more veggies, etc., as opposed to substituting, they might want to consider adding an extra egg and @ 1/4 cup more milk. Thank you for this recipe that’s as good to eat as it is pretty to look at!

  28. I’m curious if you have ever made this dairy-free (eg. using an almond milk other alternative in place of regular milk and coconut oil or other alternative in place of butter). If so, how did it turn out, and do you have any suggestions you could give?

  29. Donette Mullen :

    I made the crustless ham and cheddar quiche tonight for dinner and loved it! It’s a keeper recipe for sure as I can change ingredients to the base for breakfast, brunch, and dinner! Thank you for a great recipe!

    • You’re very welcome Donette! We’re very glad you enjoyed the recipe – and yes – the recipe can easily be adapted with other ingredients mixed in.

      • Just made this and my husband and I loved it. Question?? Since, the baking mix recipe has butter in it already, do you need to add the additional butter as shown in this recipe? I will be using this as a base since it is so easy and delicious! Thank you.
