My family loves this hamburger spinach quiche, especially if I make it with sausage instead of hamburger. But it’s good either way. It’s a real treat when I make it with a gluten-free pie crust, but a crust isn’t necessary. Crustless quiche makes a terrific quick and easy gluten-free meal.
The quiche tastes just as delicious without a crust, and it is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This recipe is similar to the other crustless quiche recipe I have posted. We liked the addition of spinach to this one. My kids are not spinach fans, but if it is cooked and mixed in with something, they often like it. In fact, my spinach dip is one of their favorite appetizers.
This recipe makes two quiches. If you don’t need that much, cut the recipe in half or freeze one of them.
