Nothing says spring like a lovely asparagus quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This one really cuts down on the calories too, but not the flavor, by omitting the crust. And it’s gluten-free!
Serendipity: the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. That is pretty much how I feel today! A fab group of fellow Canadian food bloggers and I are sharing Spring recipes with you all today. And for some crazy reason, it is sunny and the temperature is going to climb to an unusual high of 23 C as well. Pretty great timing and it just makes me want to spring into action and enjoy a slice of this delicious No Crust Asparagus Quiche!
But this Monday morning was a bit of a rude awakening. I was convinced 8 am April 10th deadline was tomorrow, you know on Tuesday. I already made my asparagus quiche recipe the week prior for my mom’s birthday. She just loves asparagus so it was perfect. The plan was to write my post tonight. My morning ritual is to play on my laptop about 30 min before I get up. That is when I saw the date —- Monday April 10th. SHITTTTTT! Oops!
You have never seen someone flesh out a basic postable blog post as fast as I did this morning! You could say I really sprung into action ha!

So yeah the good weather…back to 9 C feeling 6 C tomorrow plus rain. Boo! Oh well, we need the rain to clean all the crap on the sidewalks from winter. Spring is rain. Spring is asparagus. I know when I see these beauties in the grocery store that life will get better.
And serving them up in a quiche brings a lot of spring to me step (yeah I am LOVING using spring as a pun non stop today) because it is such a lovely light dish that can be served for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Actually, I served this as a first course for a fancier dinner.
I fell in love and took inspiration for this recipe at Dashing Dish, I did not design the gorgeous pretty topping, it was all hers. But I did change quite a few things in the recipe, like using stronger cheeses because I prefer my quiches this way. Besides tasting absolutely delicious, this asparagus quiche is really easy to serve! I was afraid it might stick to the pie plate but with the help of a spatula, I got gorgeous slices out of it. And no crust = gluten-free.
Perfect for guest and great for any upcoming Easter menu!
No Crust Asparagus Quiche
- 1 small bunch Asparagus (about 2 cups diced)
- 1/2 cup shallots diced
- 7 whole Eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 3/4 cup Gruyère
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1/4 tsp Pepper
- 1/2 cup Shredded Gouda
- A few whole asparagus for topping tomatoes for topping
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 9 inch pie plate and set aside.
- Sanp the tough ends off of the asparagus and rinse well. Chop the asparagus into 1 inch long pieces, place them in small bowl with 1/2 cup water and microwave for 2 minutes. Drain well and leave to cool. Sprinkle the asparagus evenly on the bottom of the pie plate.
- Meanwhile, combine the shallots, eggs, milk, gruyère, salt and pepper in a medium bowl and mix well. Pour mixture into the pie plate.
- Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and add gouda cheese, and a few asparagus and tomatoes. Place back in the oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes, or until filling is set. Leave to rest for at least 5 minutes and then cut into 8 slices.

I love a good quiche and this looks amazing. I do wonder how it turns out without a crust but know some people who would love to try this dish because they can’t do the crust.
I was wondering how I would feel about no crust, I barely missed it in this recipe, had a nice golden brown cheesy ‘exterior’
This looks so good! I can imagine my husband enjoying this for breakfast! I would love to keep the recipe and make this for us one of these days!
We have started to try to reduce the amount of carbs we are eating so this comes at a great time! This looks SO delicious.

Crustless quiche, I love that, and with asparagus, this is really a great spring dish. Happy birthday to your mom Eve, so this is one of your family’s long spring celebrations as well :). I do not know how you managed to write the post that fast, usually if I am in such situation I panic and panic and keep panicking probably till the next day :)).
Thank you Amira and yes the celebrations continue…number 3 this weekend with Easter lol. Well the posting deadline was 6 to 8 am the 10…there was no waiting any longer lol (and I fleshed it out more at work shhh 😉 )
Haha, glad I am not alone with the mixing up of dates for posts/events/life 🙂 LOVE asparagus, and even more so in a crustless quiche (because my crusts always suck!) Have a great Easter (and our temperatures dipped, too, but hoping they go back up!)
Seems like a bunch of us got mixed up lol, maybe Mondays are bad lol. Yes I suck at crusts too! Happy warm Easter!
I love quiche, but have never made one myself, and I am totally loving the idea of crustless…this quiche definitely has “spring” in it.
I hope you are having a fantastic week Evelyne 🙂
Thank you Juliana, well I highly recommend this one as a first time quiche recipe 🙂 Have a great weekend!
I want to stuff my face with this delicious quiche. Awesome flavours and the asparagus makes me crave Spring!
Thanks Sonali, I’ll trade you a slice for one of your doughnuts lol.
So many good things here, Evelyne, but your quiche is the best! I just made asparagus last night for dinner and wish I had seen this first. Haven’t made quiche in ages but will be soon after seeing this. Glad you sprung into action!
Thank you Pam! It had been a while since I made a quiche too, don tknow why without a crust is is so easy!
Love spring produce! We’ve been gorging ourselves. Haven’t done much with asparagus yet — need to. Love a good crustless quiche — this is a winner. Thanks!
Thanks Jonh! Asparagus are one of the ealry ones, here so nirth there has been little so far, we take what we can get 🙂 Glad you like the quiche!
THIS QUICHE – HELLOOO! It’s whispering in my ear telling me to take a sexy bite. But I am telling him to strip off his cheese first – he he!
Yes, without cheese you can do it, hmm, maybe add chunks of salmon and salmon skins 😀
Lovely quiche ! Looks amazing ! It’s perfect for Spring with those asparagus ! I had to work the past Sunday and Monday, so I cramped all the pictures taking, writing on Saturday and I spent all day Friday, decorating my cookies ! I think the round-up came out fantastic ! That just shows how good we can work under pressure ! lol….Happy Spring !

I love a crustless quiche—especially when asparagus is involved! Great job scurrying to get your post up!! I wish I had a big slice for lunch 🙂
I never want to be on a deadline like that again lol. Gad you like the quiche 🙂
We’re definitely feeling the cold now which must mean that you’ll be feeling the warmth although a Canadian friend showed snow on her facebook feed the other day!Love spring asparagus! 😀
We actually just got a flash summer like rainstorm with thunder and lightning. But back to cold tomorrow. But please the snow should be over!!!!!!
It’s definitely spring’s fault because we realized it was April the 10th this morning and…well, you saw, we were a bit late to the party 😉 ! And to add to that, this morning, here in Edmonton, Alberta it was snowing, yes, snowing. It didn’t last long, but still!!! Anyway, love asparagus, for me it’s the first spring indicator. Your crustless quiche look sensational!
Thanks Nicoletta and OMG I am so happy to learn that I ma not alone in loosing rack of the date lol. But so glad you made it! We just had a summer thunderstorm !?!?!?
“Sprung” into action, bahaha. You know, for the last collab, I had my shit *so* together. But for this one, I didn’t get to write the post until last night after 9pm. WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME. This quiche looks lovely though, and I want it in my face space right now. Anything eggy, cheesy, and veggie-filled is dynamite.
Ha ha thank you Dana, hey I started writting this post at 7h20 AM this morning!! I have nver done this in my 10 years of blogging. I think it is spring fever that is getting to us (YES one more spring pun today). Wish I could send you a slice.
Fabulous idea! Love crustless quiche. Would make a perfect addition with Easter Brunch.
How is it you’re getting such warm weather?? Send some my way please!! Have a great Easter weekend.
Thank you so much Diana! And yes perfect for Easter or burthday dinners! It’s a fluke, just had lunch in the park in a t-shirt and flip flops. Rain and 6C tomorrow. How is the weather where you are?
Yucky. HA! Thunderstorms and high of 6 C. (I’m in Sudbury, Ontario) We had a beautiful weekend however. Soon enough I’ll be moving my office to the back patio. 🙂
Pretty mcuh wished I could get my desk at work out in the park at the end of my hour, I get you lol.
Mmmm I love any kind of quiche, and often make crustless quiches for dinner because they’re so easy and quick to make! I love your tomato and asparagus flavour combination…it’s perfect for spring!
Thanks Jo-Anna and you are so right so mucyh time saved without a crust. Hope you give this combo a try! 🙂
I had lots of white asparagus today and still crave for them. Can’t imagine spring without asparagus! Your crustless quiche looks very inviting!
OK, post done lol. Oh love white asparagus but can be harder ti find here. Thanks for your comment Angie!
Nothing says spring more than asparagus… love the fact that this recipe is crustless. Thanks for sharing!
Thganks Maria, indeed asparagus screams spring. (sorry just saw comment was trapped in trash)
