Crustless Spinach with Smoked Meat and Gouda Cheese Quiche is a super easy recipe, low in carbs, delicious and also healthier than the regular quiche. This is a perfect dish for breakfast, lunch or brunch.
Crustless quiche is one of our favorite breakfast items. We are not cereal eaters in the morning, so eggs are a great way to get energy, protein and keep us satisfied for longer periods of time.
This recipe today is a simple quiche that uses lots of spinach, but to make it more fun I added smoked cured pork loin and gouda cheese. I would say that if you do not have all ingredients, you can replace them with whatever you have available.
You can replace the smoked pork loin with ham, bacon or any smoked meat you like and gouda with any shredded cheese you have in the refrigerator. I do that very often.
This recipe is very easy to make and also good for you if you are watching your carbs. There is no crust involved. I make quiche very often because we discovered that we can eat it not only for breakfast, but it is great for brunch or lunch.
I often take a slice with me at work and have it with a salat. Do you have a favorite salad? I like this one. Goes really well with any kind of quiche.
Spinach is also one of my main staples in the house. I always have a bag of frozen spinach and I never run out of eggs, ham, cheese( the sharper, the better for this recipe) or sour cream. If you want to see the pantry items I cannot live without, read here. Lots of good idea items to put on your shopping list!
Anyway, quiche recipes are very forgiving and if you are a little bit creative, you can put together a fancy quiche out of nothing basically, using main ingredients most people have around the house.
