Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Cool the quinoa. It’s really important to make sure the quinoa is fully cooled before mixing it into the egg mixture. If it’s hot, you’ll wind up pre-cooking those eggs.
  • Make it ahead. One of the things I love about this crustless quiche recipe is that it’s really easy to make ahead. This makes it perfect for a party or potluck! You can prepare the quiche batter up to a day in advance and store it in an airtight container in the fridge. When you’re ready to bake, just give it a good stir and pick up the recipe where you left off!
  • Make it your own. These quiche muffins are really easy to customize. Feel free to change up the veggies, change the cheese, or add some different meats. Really, the sky is the limit so get creative!

What to Serve With Quiche Muffins

If I’m serving crustless spinach quiche as part of brunch, I love to pair it with some cheesy hashbrowns, blueberry banana bread, and some crispy air fryer bacon. Finish things off with a delicious cinnamon dulce latte or a banana kiwi smoothie! I also think it would go beautifully with a light salad for lunch. Feel free to get creative and enjoy these quiche muffins any time!

Can I Store or Reheat Leftovers?

These crustless quiches hold up really well in both the fridge and the freezer, making them a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack. The store, let them cool completely, then wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Then, refrigerate or freeze based on what you need. To reheat, microwave them for 30-60 seconds or until hot.

      Hi! You can use goat cheese, but I would suggest to use any cheese that you like. Shredded cheddar, for instance, or mozzarella. I hope that helps. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Please clarify if the 375 degrees is in Fahrenheit or Celsius. I’m assuming Celcius, as my over doesn’t go above 250 deg C. Not everyone looking at this site is American, and many other countries use Celcius instead.
    Thanks, looks like it’s going to be a good recipe!

      Hi Teresa!

      That’s a great point! Thank you!! I know I have a lot of readers outside of the States so including that will definitely be a benefit.
      In as far as this recipe, the 375 is in Fahrenheit. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Oh I cringe everytime my parents say to my 16 month old- can’t wait to take you to McDonald’s. It’s like oh come on now! lol. They do love spoiling the grandkids ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lately I have been trying to healthify her meals so this one is a good one-love that word btw ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Just wondering how much cooked quinoa you work add.. 1 1/2 cups? I have a bunch of leftover quinoa in the fridge to use up.

    Love these savory muffins! (Spinach + cheese is always a winner!) I’d use the gift card for props!

  5. I’m totally intrigued that you throw quinoa in muffins! I have to try that with the kids. I have quinoa coming out the wazoo! These look great. I’ll put these on the list for sure. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I should buy quinoa in bulk, great idea! Then I will go to target and buy a mini purse I’ve been eyeing up recently.

    Love the idea. I am so much like you, I buy wheat germ, quinoa everything healthy in bulk, powder it and add in everything. Love it. My hubby says I buy a little too much at Target, love the store.

    We just bought a house. I could think of a million things. A rug…drapes, or possibly cute dishes. I never have problems finding things at Target.
