Plenty satisfying and easy on the waistline, this crustless turkey and spinach quiche is a perfect brunch recipe to share with your girlfriends. The filling features a combination of bite-sized bits of smoked turkey ham, onions, leafy baby spinach, and shredded cheddar and Swiss cheeses.


Sprinkle some of the Swiss cheese in the pie plate first before adding the ham and egg mixture. The thin layer on the bottom gives you another hit of flavor when you bite into a piece.—Wendy McMillan, Longmont, CO

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 4

Step 5

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and baking powder in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add flour mixture to egg mixture, stirring with a whisk until blended. Pour egg mixture over ham mixture. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center of quiche comes out clean.

I've made it the night before, but I baked it. Then just warmed it up at 350 for 20 minutes or so. It was really good!

This is my GO-TO quiche recipe for 6 years now

I have made this quiche for 6 years now for every type of celebration possible! I don't believe in fat-free ingredients, so use full fat cheese and evaporated milk. I've always used high quality ham instead of turkey-ham. My standard side dish is a pan of roasted asparagus. I've passed this recipe on to others at least 25times. ITS PERFECTION!

Love, love, love this recipe!! I am not a fan of crust so I was more than happy to use cheese instead of dough for the crust. Great for a fast breakfast or for dinner with a salad or vegetables on the side.

Very delicious quiche. My husband and I loved it. It was so easy and we like the lower calorie ingredients. YUM! Will make again for sure. I didn't change a thing in the ingredients other than I used a slab of smoked turkey and cut it into cubes. I couldn't find the Jenny-0 brand of turkey in my grocery store.

I used Canadian Bacon instead of the turkey ham and it worked perfectly. Very tasty and easy!

Made as recipe called for. Only difference I rough cut the spinach so it would mix easier. 3rd time tonight as it is raining-no grill tonight!

I made this recipe because I had spinach that I needed to use up before it went to waste. I am not a huge fan of ham or cheese, but made the recipe as written. I wasn't going to comment, because honestly I didn't think it was that great. But this morning, I had a bite of the leftovers and was won over. It tasted so much better than yesterday - can't figure that one out. I do have all the ingredients to make one more, so this time I think I will skip the ham and replace it with bacon and add some diced green chilies and pepperflakes. Spicing it up will make it a keeper for me. Enjoy

It turned out so great! And is equally good hot and cold. The cheese makes a nice crust at the bottom, and you can use mushroom, green onions, bacon, whatever you have at hand.

Yep, a good solid recipe. Used one piece of bacon instead of turkey and thought that was plenty of meat. Added some red bell pepper and a sprinkle of Italian seasoning. And like some other cooks, I pureed the cottage cheese. It was certainly good and came out of the pan very nicely, but it was not particularly special--just good. A nice dish for a potluck or to use as an appetizer.

I've made this recipe several times, swapping in more veggies or different types of cheese depending on what's in the fridge, and it always always always turns out to be delicious. Everyone I have served this dish to has loved it. I actually never have evaporated milk on hand, so I usually just use a little less regular or soy milk and I've never had a problem with the recipe.
