Crustless Sweet Corn Quiche, a complete wholesome meal with step by Step pictures.
Quiche is an open faced pastry made either with a crust or without it, that has a savory filling with a custard which is mostly egg based. You can make either a meat based or vegetable filling depending on you choice. When you do not have the time or watching your calorie intake, you can go for a crust less quiche like this one. I wanted to make a tart or pie but did not want to end up eating a butter rich pastry after the Plum Crumble Bars
, so opted for a crust less Quiche that’s filed with veggies and cheese that are loved by the kids.
As its filled with veggies, cheese, eggs and milk, it makes a complete meal in itself. Quiche can either be served hot or cold. I packed a quarter of a slice along with some ketchup for my kids Snacks break at school and the remaining half was served with some piping hot soup for Dinner.
A quiche is basically very easy to put together especially if you are going for a crust less one. Prepare the veggie mixture the day before and store it in the fridge. The next morning whip up the custard while the veggie mixture is thawing and shove the pan in the oven and you can an easy meal to pack that’s mess free and one that won’t spill as well.
One of the sponsors of the IFBmeet, Freedom Tree
have challenged the bloggers to come with a savory bake featuring Corn as the main ingredient and this is my entry for the contest. Corn is most loved by both kids and adults alike and what better way to enjoy the monsoon season that munching on a spicy corn cob.
- Do Not, I repeat, Do Not add salt to the corn mixture while it is cooking or while it is still hot, Add it only after the mixture has cooled completely and just before you transfer it to the baking pan. If you do so, the mushroom and spinach will start to leave out water making you quiche mushy and it will take longer time to bake as well.
- Instead of topping the quiche with bread crumbs, you can add grated cheese as well but I wanted to cut out all extra fat.
- Make sure that eggs and milk are at room temperature else the mixture may curdle after seasoning with pepper.
- Baking timings may differ with each oven.
