A simple, mouthwateringly delicious gluten-free quiche that is so ridiculously easy to make, it borders on laziness! Made with bacon, lots of broccoli, fresh garlic, eggs, mascarpone and feta cheese – this Bacon Broccoli And Feta Crustless Quiche IS THE BUSINESS.
Laziness is perhaps a little strong, as all forms of healthy cooking are totally awesome and commendable.
But trust me, this take on a healthy “Quiche Lorraine” is really basic and quick (as far as quiches go) – yet incredibly flavourful!!
Made with no cream, milk or flour and you could easily make this a vegetable quiche by adding butternut, spinach or kale (or your favourite veggies) and leaving out the bacon. You can also substitute the bacon for ham if you prefer.
So, how to make Bacon Broccoli And Feta Crustless Quiche in a few easy steps:
- Fry the bacon and garlic for a few minutes
- Then add the broccoli and cook, stirring often until bright green
- Pour this mixture into a greased baking dish
- Whisk together eggs and mascarpone, then pour over the bacon and broccoli
- Top with feta cheese and bake!
Easy as pie.
It’s that time of year again folks! Christmas is just around the corner and most of us have imminent gatherings with friends or family, or both…And these gatherings inevitably involve food…lots of it.
Which leaves us with the obvious question of – what should I make? And as much as I love the tried and tested traditional faves, sometimes it’s nice to try something new and different.
Let’s mix it up!
Which is why I decided to make this Bacon Broccoli And Feta Crustless Quiche for my family who are coming over for lunch tomorrow…
It turned out so scrumptiously well, I wanted to share the recipe with all of you!

This quiche really is perfect for any time of the year and just about any occasion, as well as being an ideal option for an easy midweek lunch or dinner.
I’m going to serve it for lunch tomorrow with a bunch of other things…this quiche will be a fun extra to the simple “cold meats and salad” lunch. Along with an array of cheeses.
This quiche will serve 2- 3 as a main dish with a salad, or 6 – 9 as an additional dish in a buffet meal.
Of course I’ll be making my Christmas Fruit Mince Pies With Light Pastry for dessert…a family tradition!
If you’ve never tried mince pies, you totally should try them this year! They’re a traditional British Christmas-time treat – mini shortcrust pastry pies filled with spicy, sweet dried fruit in a sticky, spicy sauce…Too good, my taste buds are watering!
Personally, I’m in love with this Bacon Broccoli And Feta Crustless Quiche recipe, for its ease as well as its deliciousness!
A simple, mouthwateringly delicious, G-free Bacon Broccoli And Feta Crustless Quiche made with bacon, lots of broccoli, fresh garlic, egg, mascarpone and feta cheese.
- 200 g shoulder bacon , sliced into thin strips
- 3 cloves garlic , finely chopped
- 1 small head broccoli , diced small
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp mixed herbs
- 1/3 cup mascarpone cheese
- 8 eggs
- 1/4 cup feta cheese , diced small
Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F) and grease quiche dish or a square baking dish with butter.
Fry the bacon until just cooked, then add the garlic, garlic powder and mixed herbs and fry for about 3 minutes.
Throw in the broccoli and fry for 4 minutes, or until the broccoli is bright green, stirring often. Pour the bacon and broccoli mixture into the prepared baking dish.
Whisk the eggs, then add the mascarpone and whisk to incorporate. Don’t worry if small lumps of mascarpone remain. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and broccoli, then arrange the feta cheese on top and bake for 40 - 45 minutes or until the quiche is golden and cooked through in the centre.
This quiche will serve 2- 3 as a main dish with a salad, or 6 - 9 as an additional dish in a buffet meal.
Make this into a vegetable quiche by leaving out the bacon and adding small cubes of pumpkin or butternut squash. Kale or spinach would work well too.
- You can use ham instead of bacon if you prefer…there would be no need to fry the ham, so fry the garlic in a little olive oil, then add the broccoli as above. Stir the ham strips into the broccoli and garlic mixture before spooning into the baking dish.
