SPINACH MUSHROOM AND FETA CRUSTLESS QUICHE


ISN’T A “CRUSTLESS QUICHE” JUST A FRITTATA?

While they are both baked egg dishes, there are distinct differences. The main difference is the texture. Quiches are a baked egg and cheese custard, with a lot of milk or cream, and a soft, delicate texture. Frittatas contain little to no milk or cream, so it is closer in texture to an omelette or straight baked egg. The other significant difference comes in the cooking process. Frittatas start on the stove top and only finish only for the last few minutes in the oven. Quiches are baked in the oven only.

CAN THIS CRUSTLESS QUICHE BE REHEATED?

Yes, this is one of my favorite make-ahead breakfast dishes! But you do need to be cautious while reheating because overheating can cause the egg proteins to seize up, expel water, and become rubbery. For that reason I suggest reheating in the microwave only until the crustless quiche is warmed through, but not piping hot. This will store in the refrigerator for about 4 days.

CAN YOU FREEZE CRUSTLESS QUICHE?

Egg dishes like crustless quiche freeze just so-so. This is one of those grey areas where it will depend a lot on how sensitive you are to texture changes. The egg will seep a little water upon freezing, thawing, and reheating, which may or may not bother you. I suggest testing this with one piece of the quiche first to see if the changes are acceptable to you. To freeze, cool the quiche in the refrigerator first, then wrap tightly in plastic and transfer to the freezer. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
