Crustless Spinach Quiche Muffins

The quiche recipes in our book feature our delicious, flaky “Grain Free Crust” – however, if you’re feeling like you need a quicker-prep option, you can omit the slow carbohydrate crust then mix a few beans into your batter and garnish with a few slices of avocado instead. In addition, baking these in muffin cups makes them even easier to serve and take with you. We like silicone muffin tins for easier clean up.

Ratios: To balance ratios, add 1 1/2 cups of cooked beans to the batter AND topping each serving of quiche off with 1/2 an avocado (or, 3 avocados per recipe).

Chef Kenzie’s Pro Tip: Blend white beans with the eggs for a smooth texture in your crustless spinach quiche.

Crustless Quiche Recipe Variations

Try turning any of our quiche recipes into egg muffins or mini egg muffins. Try one of the quiches from Always Delicious pp. 92-95 or turn Dr. Ludwig’s Favorite Frittata from Always Hungry? pg. 225 into a mini quiche recipe.

Kid-Friendly

Kids LOVE these mini bites for snacks, breakfasts, or lunches. They also enjoy mixing and pouring them. Let your kids choose ingredients that they love for the egg muffins. It will even result in the pickiest eaters finding (or creating) flavors they like.
