This Crustless Quiche Lorraine is a delicious twist on a classic recipe. This crustless quiche is loaded with bacon, eggs, Swiss cheese, and cream. Perfect for Easter brunch or any family gathering that will please all your guests.
In a perfect world, I think I’d brunch every single day. Seriously, it’s my favorite meal. Ever. And why wouldn’t it be? Not only is it always HUGE….and filled with amazing variety….but you get to eat it in the morning instead of having to wait until dinner! Definitely my kind of meal!
There’s also something about it that brings back good memories. Growing up, it’s the meal we had following baptisms and first communions. The meal we made for my mom on Mother’s Day. And even in adulthood, it’s the one meal we’ve had standing plans for. We used to get together with my sister and brother in law every Sunday for – you guessed it – brunch! Because brunch is a meal that’s meant to be eaten with the people you love.
Crustless Quiche Lorraine- A brunch favorite
Which is exactly what makes it so perfect for Easter! This year we’ll be having Easter brunch at my parents’ house, and I can’t wait to take one (or three) of these Crustless Quiche Lorraines to share! If you’ve never had Quiche Lorraine, it’s a classic quiche recipe that’s baked inside a flaky, buttery crust. But I’ve never understood the need for crust, especially since every brunch I’ve ever been to has been loaded with delicious pastries and muffins and other assorted goodies. So I decided to cut the crust right out….and it’s the best decision I ever made.
This quiche is loaded with the delicious flavors of eggs, bacon, and Swiss cheese. A classic combo that’s ALWAYS delicious.
