This recipe saved me a couple of nights ago. It was a week full of soccer practices, Kung-Fu classes and parent-teacher conferences. That means one thing…dinner planning disappeared into the abyss, along with vacuuming and dusting. At least, that’s my excuse. Otherwise I’d have to admit that housecleaning is not my forte, and that would be entirely untrue.

I can hear my family’s laughter ringing in my head as I write that.

This is one of those recipes that makes for a healthy brunch recipe on the weekend or a quick re-heated breakfast on school mornings, but also easily crosses over to dinnertime.

Lucky for me!

This version takes on a southwestern flair, with black beans, tomatoes and pepper Jack cheese. However, it is also very versatile and can take on almost every egg-friendly profile.

Do you want to add turkey sausage? Go for it! How about mushrooms and fresh thyme? Sounds good to me! Cheddar and red bell peppers? I’m all over that!

The blacks beans sunk to the bottom when I sprinkled them into the egg mixture and formed a pseudo-crust when baked. It was actually kind of cool! If you prefer that the black beans end up in the middle of the quiche, add them halfway through baking.

I know I have adapted a crustless quiche to use up what we have, but your original recipe must be tried in its entirety. It just sounds so good and your photos draw me in.

Love this, Dara! Eggs are my go-to meal, and I’m always trying to cut out some crust!

This is a great idea for a quick meal. Love how the beans sank to the bottom, it really does look cool. Thanks for sharing!

Making this for my aunt who can’t eat beans. Can I use the mushrooms and other ideas instead?

Hi Janice, you can definitely use any of the other ideas. For the mushrooms, red bell pepper or turkey sausage, make sure to saute them before adding them to the eggs. I hope you and your aunt enjoy it!

This looks really good! I think I’ll try it for lunch today. I feel that the health benefits of the entire egg far outweigh any negatives of eating the yolk (but that’s me). How many whole eggs do you think? Maybe 8?
Thanks for the recipe!

Update: Made this – very tasty, and I used 8 whole eggs.

I make a similar crustless quiche with artichokes. It’s delicious! I find it so much easier to make quiche without the crust and make them in mini muffin tins so the kids can take to school.
