I love quiches and this yummy Spinach, Mushroom & Feta Crustless Quiche is one of my all favorites. I serve quiche for breakfast or brunch for family and friends especially when I’m feeding a crowd because it’s easy to make, easy to serve and really inexpensive.
A quiche is basically an egg and milk custard filled with all sorts of other things (usually cheese and vegetables). Traditionally, quiches are baked into a pie crust but I wanted to skip the pie crust and felt that I had enough cheese in here to cover my fat ration for the day so I just skipped the crust. I’m always on the look out how to cut down fat and calories, aren’t we all? Okay, you could cut down the cheeses but when entertaining my first criteria is first,how good it taste !
Actually, this is so good you could serve this Spinach, Mushroom & Feta Crustless Quiche as dinner!
Wish it, Dream it, Do it…

Spinach, Mushroom & Feta Crustless Quiche...

8 oz. fresh mushrooms
½ tsp minced garlic
as needed non-stick spray
1 bunch or bag of fresh spinach or 10 oz. box frozen spinach
4 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 oz. feta cheese
¼ cup grated parmesan
½ cup shredded mozzarella
to taste salt & pepper
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. If your frozen spinach is not already thawed, thaw it in the microwave. Empty the box into a colander and let it drain while you begin to prepare the rest.
Quickly rinse the mushrooms and slice them thinly. Place the sliced mushrooms in a skillet coated with non-stick spray, 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 (5-7 minutes).
Spray a pie dish with non-stick spray. Squeeze the rest of the water out of the spinach and spread it out on the bottom of the pie dish. Next add the cooked mushrooms and crumbled feta.
In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs until fairly smooth. Add the milk, parmesan, and another small sprinkle of pepper. Whisk to combine. (This step can be completed while the mushrooms are cooking) Pour this mixture into the pie dish over the spinach, mushrooms, and feta.
Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese over top. Place the pie dish on a baking sheet for easy transfer into the oven. Place the quiche into the preheated oven and bake until it is golden brown on top and the center is solid. Every oven is different but this should take between 45 minutes and an hour. Slice and serve!
