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 2

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add ham, onion, and pepper to pan; sauté 4 minutes or until ham is lightly browned.

Step 3

Sprinkle 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese in a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Top with ham mixture.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1/2 cup Swiss cheese, spinach, and next 5 ingredients (through egg whites) in a large bowl; stir with a whisk.

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!

This was a great quiche, full of flavor. i did make some substutions as it was what was on hand. Instead of ham, I used crumbled bear (yes, bear) breakfast sausage; cheeses were a light shredded Mexican Blend and light Italian Blend. My 16-year-old loved it as well as a picky husband. also, I couldn't find fat-free evaporated milk so I used 2 percent.

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 made this recipe for a good friend who came over for brunch. It was so delicious between her, my husband and I, we ate most of it! I truly did not miss the crust at all. Needless to say, I made this recipe again later that day for breakfast during the week and since then my husband often requests this recipe. My only tweak so far after making the initial recipe is to add another handful of spinach.

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.
