Spinach Artichoke Crustless Quiche

Inasmuch as I hate to admit it, I don't seem to be out of the woods with this flu. It seemed to rear its ugly head over the weekend, and my scratchy throat and pounding headache have returned. What a bore! As a consequence, while I am still cooking, I try to make dishes that are as easy as possible, and will stretch over a period of days. I really had a craving for spinach mushroom dip and quiche, so decided to combine the two in the form of a crustless quiche. I love things that are minimal effort, with a delicious result. This was certainly it. And, with a yield of six servings, my weekly menu is planned. 
Spinach Artichoke Crustless Quiche

1 tablespoon butter
1-1/2 tablespoons seasoned breadcrumbs
1 10-oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 14.75-oz. jar marinated artichokes (I use Cara Mia), chopped
1 cup shredded Fontina
1 cup shredded Gruyere
4 large eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup whole milk
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Butter a 9-10 deep-dish pie pan or quiche dish, then sprinkle all over with breadcrumbs.

Carefully layer spinach, artichokes, and cheeses over crumbs in pie/quiche pan; set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together eggs, cream, milk, and pepper.  Pour slowly over the cheeses. Bake until top is golden and custard is set in center, 45-55 minutes. Cool slightly before cutting into wedges.

Hi Pattie,
OMG this looks so good. I am going to try this. I am trying to cut back on carbs now that the holidays are over and this looks really delish even without a traditional crust. Thanks for sharing.
Hope you start to feel better.

This looks scrummy! I usually make my quiche without a crust, so this is right up my alley. BTW one important thing to do (if you haven't already done it) is to replace your toothbrush. I always do after being sick, but I hear some of the flu is quite nasty this year.

YUM. Though I did just make a batch of 20 pie crusts to freeze! Will be trying this soon - hope you are feeling better soon!!

I am making note of the breadcrumbs in the bottom for soggy barrier- I have used just flour and I don't like the pasty texture- going to try this!

All I can say is YUM. This quiche looks amazing. I haven't had breakfast yet, so I wish this quiche was cooking in my oven right now! Great recipe!

Sometimes I think I could live on quiche! This is a recipe I will try for sure - I usually bake mine in a crust, but this sounds delish!
