You’ll love this recipe for Crustless Quiche
Growing up, my family wasn’t a huge egg for breakfast eater family. I’ve always been more of a Breakfast Potato kind of gal. Then one day, I went to a brunch at my didn’t-know-it-then-soon-to-be-in-law’s (that was a mouthful!) house and this glorious Breakfast Casserole was there.
What had been missing from my life?? The world of eggs got a lot more exciting than plain ol’ scrambled! I could not get enough! I ate (more than) my fair share of this beauty. It is my favorite and something I always look forward to.
What is a Breakfast Egg Casserole?
A Breakfast Egg Casserole is basically a large 9×13 pan of deliciously fluffy and perfectly seasoned scrambled eggs. They bake up in the oven, so you’ll slice and serve.
Easy Egg Casserole Ingredients
- Butter – this is used to make the egg casserole not stick to the pan.
- Eggs – it wouldn’t be an egg casserole with out eggs! We will use 18 to make a 9×13 pan.
- Sour Cream – adding sour cream makes the eggs super tangy and fluffy.
- Salt + Pepper
- Dried Mustard – this seems like a strange ingredient for eggs, but trust the process! You won’t regret it.
- Shredded Cheese – this melts into the eggs. You don’t end up with globs of cheese in there, I promise. Even my cheese hating son loves this egg casserole.
- Mix Ins – we are talking crumbled bacon, cooked sausage, peppers, onions, anything like that would be delicious!
Make this Egg and Cheese Casserole your own!
One of my favorite things about this Breakfast Egg Casserole recipe is the fact that it is so customizable!! You can toss pretty much anything you’d like into the egg mixture before baking. Below are some of my favorite add ins:
- cooked and crumbled sausage
- cooked and crumbled bacon
- cubed ham
- frozen hashbrowns
- sun dried tomatoes
- different flavors of cheese
How to make a Crustless Quiche
Throwing this together really could not be more simple! I like to use my blender to get everything really combined, but you could use your whisk if you’d like.
- Combine 18 eggs, sour cream, milk, salt, pepper and dried mustard. If using a whisk, whisk vigorously until there are no more lumps.
- Melt some butter into a 9×13 inch baking dish and tip to coat the pan with the melted butter.
- Pour the egg mixture into the pan and then add cheese. Loads of cheese and gently stir/pat down into the eggs.
- Bake in the oven at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown on top.
- Slice and serve!
How to store Egg and Cheese Casserole
Store in the fridge in an air tight container or zip top bag. You can freeze leftovers, too, if you’d like. They will keep for 3 months.
Can my Breakfast Egg Casserole be frozen?
Yes! This freezes really well actually! Cut the casserole into pieces, place the pieces on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and freeze for 1 hour. Once the casserole is mostly frozen, toss them into a large zip top bag. Pre-freezing like this will make it so the pieces won’t freeze together.
When you are ready to eat, just pop it in the microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute depending on your microwave.
How long does egg casserole keep?
It will stay fresh in the fridge for 4 days. If you’d like to store it longer than that, I suggest freezing it.
What to eat with Breakfast Egg Casserole
We always make this quiche on Christmas morning along with Cinnamon rolls. You can serve it next to pancakes, French toast, waffles or muffins though!
FAQs for Egg Casserole without Bread
YES!! One of my favorite ways of doing this is by mixing together the egg mixture the night before I need it, store it in the 9×13 pan uncooked over night and then just tossing it into the oven in the morning! Then it just bakes away as you prep other items for your brunch menu.
There isn’t much difference between these two, actually.
If your crustless quiche has a lot of liquid still after baking, it might not be completely cooked through. There shouldn’t be excess liquid and it should cut easily and not fall apart.
The top will turn a golden brown color and the internal temperature should read 160°.
This isn’t necessary!
Before cutting into the egg casserole, let it cool for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to keep your oven door shut as the casserole is baking.
Seasonings and mix ins. Make sure that you season your quiche well and add your desired mix ins for a quiche that you’ll love.

Made for Easter breakfast and turned out so fluffy. I cut recipe in half as only had five people. Started in a toaster oven but transferred to regular oven last 10 minutes. Was very yummy, a big hit.
