Crustless Mushroom Quiche

As a mushroom enthusiast and amateur chef, I’ve always been drawn to the earthy, rich flavor of mushrooms. One of my absolute favorite recipes to showcase the deliciousness of mushrooms is a crustless mushroom quiche. This dish is not only a delightful treat for mushroom lovers but also a versatile option for those looking for a low-carb or gluten-free meal.

Benefits of Crustless Mushroom Quiche

The absence of a traditional crust doesn’t take away from the indulgence of this dish. In fact, it makes the preparation simpler and reduces the overall carbohydrate content. This means you can savor each bite without any guilt, especially if you’re watching your carb intake.

Mushroom Varieties

When it comes to making a crustless mushroom quiche, the choice of mushrooms is crucial. I love using a combination of cremini, shiitake, and oyster mushrooms for a nuanced flavor profile. Their different textures and tastes truly elevate the dish.

Flavor Enhancements

To enhance the savory umami flavor, I often add a hint of freshly chopped thyme and a sprinkle of nutty Parmesan cheese. These ingredients complement the mushrooms beautifully, creating a medley of flavors in every mouthful.


For those eager to try their hand at this delectable dish, here’s a simple recipe:


  • 2 cups of mixed mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. In a skillet, sauté the onions and mushrooms in olive oil until they are soft and any liquid has evaporated.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
  4. Spread the cooked mushrooms and onions evenly in a greased pie dish.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the mushrooms.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the quiche is set and the top is golden.
  7. Allow the quiche to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
