I love a good crust for a quiche but um, I also love cutting time in the kitchen when I’m busy. This Crustless Mini Quiche with Sweet Potato comes in super handy when in a rush. Make it in a big pan and simply call it big Sweet Potato Quiche :P
If you’ve been following Green Healthy Cooking for while you know sweet potatoes are MY LIFE! I’m half Peruvian and I was born with sweet potato juice in my veins. For real!
Sweet potatoes are about the most delicious root on the planet and creating a quiche recipe felt like a necessity. Now, since sweet potatoes are considered a carb, I didn’t want to add to the carbs in this recipe and thus made the mini quiches crustless.
If you do absolutely love crusts, I recommend making this quinoa crust for the mini quiches.
Now let’s get to the nitty gritty of the Crustless Mini Quiches.
How to Make Mini Quiche Without a Crust
First of all you’ll need small oven proof containers. I love love love my 0.25 qt ceramic mini cocotte but you can also easily use ramekins OR you could even use a muffin tin.
The advantage of the cocotte or pretty ramekins is that you can serve the crustless mini quiche right in there. The advantage of the muffin tin is, your can make a lot more. I recommend using silicone cups as liners though. Egg based stuff is notorious for sticking to muffin tins.
Don’t use paper liners. Those super mega stick to the mini quiche and if you forget to remove before freezing you won’t be able to even save them anymore. So unless you like the taste of paper in your mini quiche, better leave it out.
Can you Freeze a Crustless Mini Quiche?
Absolutely! Now, if you plan on freezing them I recommend using the muffin form method. You don’t want to stick your pretty ramekins in the freezer. You won’t have them handy in the kitchen when you need them then.
Use a muffin tin with silicone liners, remove the quiches from form and liners and freeze on a baking sheet individually. The quiches shouldn’t touch each other. Then, once frozen, put al together in a freezer proof container or freezer bag.
The reason you freeze them individually first is to avoid them sticking together.
To reheat, pop in the 350F oven until defrosted and hot. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn.
Sweet Potato Quiche with Spinach
The best, yes BEST, combo in the world for me lately is sweet potatoes and spinach. I cannot get enough of this mixture. Add in some egg, top with cheese, serve it to friends and call it a fancy quiche. Hehe.
The advantage of making sweet potato quiche with spinach in mini form and crustless is that it takes a fraction of the time to bake. I put these in the oven for just 15 minutes and then turned on the broiler for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese on top.
If you make a big quiche you’ll have to bake a little longer. More like 35 minutes.
