Keto dieters know all about eggs because we eat so darn many of them, but I’m always on the hunt for new recipes to change things up; enter Ham & Spinach Crustless Quiche. OMG!! I was in breakfast heaven when I sunk my teeth into these pillowy cups of eggy goodness. At 4 net carbs, these soft, fluffy, and melt-in-your-mouth quiche were inspired by these egg custards on GetCracking.ca.

These Ham & Spinach Crustless Quiche are also a breeze to make — the trickiest part was in getting them out of the cups, so I didn’t! We at them right from the oven-friendly dishes that I baked them in.

These little guys are also totally versatile. I departed from the original recipe by making mine with sauteed spinach, ham, and plenty more cheese. A touch of onion and garlic upped the savory factor, and I swapped out the Parmesan for Swiss cheese, to keep the flavors in line with ham and spinach.

I haven’t tried to freeze these (you KNOW how much I love freezing food for later), so I don’t know how they’d turn out. If you freeze them, let me know how it goes. Mine disappeared too darn fast to save any for the freezer!

These souffle-like Ham & Spinach Crustless Quiche puff up nice and fluffy in the oven, but they deflated before I could get set up for a picture. I’ll try to fix that the next time I make them. In the meantime, whip up a batch of these lovelies today! Serve them with a side of toasted FatHead bagels, crisp bacon, or for lunch, a side salad. Yum!

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 3 each eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/2 cup Swiss cheese grated
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 ounces baby spinach leaves washed
  • 2 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 cup ham diced
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 375-F, and butter the insides of six ramekins or small oven-safe dishes that'll hold at least 1/2 cup. Put the ramekins on a cookie sheet to catch any spillover and to make moving them easier.
  • Put the softened cream cheese, eggs, and heavy cream into a blender or food processor. Pulse until well combined. Add the Parmesan and Swiss cheeses, and pulse one or two times more to blend. Set aside for a few minutes while you prepare the rest.
  • In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil and then wilt the spinach. When wilted, add the ham, 2 tbsp of heavy cream, dried onion flakes, and ground pepper.
  • Add 1/2 cup of the egg mixture to each well-buttered dish. Top with 1/6 of the spinach mixture. Bake in a 375-F oven for about 20 minutes or until they've poofed up and are set in the middle. Serve with toasted FatHead bagels, your favorite Keto bread, or for brunch, a lovely salad.
