Eggs are such an easy way to provide protein and nutrition into your meals. Who says eggs are just for breakfast either? I love a good quiche recipe, but when you are trying to cut calories, creating a crustless quiche is one great option. Not to mention you can add more cheese to make up for the crust!! I will take cheese over crust anytime. Whenever I can combine some yummy fresh ingredients with some cheese the kids really never know that I am trying to trick them into eating more veggies. You will adore this Mushroom, 3 cheese and Kale Quiche recipe that comes together in only minutes for a great weeknight meal and has no crust. Here are 23 all science-backed health benefits of kale.
The recipe includes only a few fresh ingredients that you need to cook prior to adding them to your quiche, otherwise it is a dump it in recipe. If you prefer to use frozen spinach, you cut one cooking step.
Saute’ your mushrooms in a little olive oil until all the water is gone. Set aside leaving any oil/juices in the pan.
Add the Kale and steam/cook until completely wilted. You will still need to squeeze out any liquid once it is cooked.
Layer your kale and mushrooms in a greased pie dish.

- .8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced
- ½ tsp minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 10 oz baby Kale
- 4 large Eggland's Best eggs
- 1 cup milk (we used skim)
- 2 oz. feta cheese
- ¼ cup grated parmesan
- ½ cup shredded mozzarella
- to taste salt & pepper
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Saute the sliced mushrooms in a skillet with olive oil. add the minced garlic, and sprinkle a little salt and pepper. Turn the heat on to medium-high and sauté the mushrooms until they release all of their moisture and no more water remains on the bottom of the skillet This is a very important step.
- Place the mushrooms in a bowl, and leave any juices in the pan. Add the baby kale. Cook until completely wilted. I like to cover the pan for a quick wilting process.
- Spray a pie dish with non-stick spray. Squeeze the rest of the water out of the kale spread it out on the bottom of the pie dish. Add the cooked mushrooms and crumbled feta.
- In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, Add the milk, parmesan, and another small sprinkle of pepper. Whisk to combine.
- Pour the egg mixture into the pie dish covering all the veggies and feta.
- Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over top. Place the pie dish on a baking sheet for easy transfer into the oven. Bake the crustless quiche a until it is golden brown on top and the center is solid. You can test this with a knife. Set your timer for 40 minutes but it can take up to 60 minutes
