    HollyTuesday 31st August 2021

    Hey Sue, thanks so much for your message well done on all of your achievements you have done so great well done!

Emma FernieMonday 10th May 2021

Hi,If I make the quiche tonight,would it then be ok to chill in the fridge and have tomorrow night?

    HollyMonday 10th May 2021

    Hey Emma, yes you can chill this quiche and it’s great eaten cold! Hope that helps!

LisaThursday 6th May 2021

Is it possible to do this without the quark and cheese? Due to stomach conditions cheese is a no go but I really want to make this!

    HollyTuesday 18th May 2021

    Hey Lisa, you could swap the quark for some fat free Greek or natural yoghurt and it will still work fine, hope that helps!

      KarenSunday 13th June 2021

      Hi how much Natural yogurt would you use instead of quark? Thanks

      HollyMonday 14th June 2021

      Hey Karen, it’s a like for like swap so it will be 4tbsp fat free natural yoghurt. If you are calorie counting be sure to alter the calories accordingly, hope that helps!

Paula DolanWednesday 21st April 2021

Only have a 30cm dish would that be too big

    HollyThursday 22nd April 2021

    Hey Paula, a 30cm dish would be fine for the Crustless Quiche Lorraine, hope that helps!

Jo73Saturday 27th March 2021

I love this quiche, it cooks really well every time and is delicious. Having joined WW and checking the recipe by adding it to the app the points are much higher than listed. Using reduced fat cheddar 30% the points on purple come out as 5 per portion. Using 50% fat cheddar the points comes out as 4 per portion. Please can you update. Thank you

    HollyWednesday 31st March 2021

    Hey Jo, I’ve just double checked this recipe and the points are correct on the recipe page we have used 30% reduced fat Cheddar cheese. Have a look at THIS article on how we work out the nutritional values for our recipes, hope that helps!

Sue YandleThursday 25th February 2021

Each portion of your crust less quiche is said to be is 326 calories but what size is that portion please?

    HollyThursday 25th February 2021

    Hey Sue, the Crustless Quiche Lorraine serves 4 so it’s equally split into 4 pieces. If you scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page on the website there is a little arrow by servings and you can alter up or down to serve more or less people. Hope that helps!

MaryTuesday 8th December 2020

Can I use cottage cheese instead of quark?

    HollyTuesday 15th December 2020

    Hi Mary, I’m not sure cottage cheese would work in this Crustless Quiche Lorraine as when the quark is mixed with the egg you want it free of lumps and smooth. I would suggest substituting the quark for low-fat cream cheese or ricotta and alter the calories accordingly using our guide HERE hope that helps!

CharlieSaturday 31st October 2020

Could you use sliced ham instead of bacon?

    HollyMonday 2nd November 2020

    Hey Charlie, yes sliced ham would work fine instead of the bacon. Hope that helps!

KimboTuesday 13th October 2020

Could I split this into 8 cup cake sized baking portions so that I dont have to cut it up later? Super crispy edges then, but obv I know I’ll need to adjust the cooking times!!

    HollyWednesday 14th October 2020

    Hey Kimbo, Yes you could separate the mixture and cook in a baking tray like we do in our Breakfast Muffins Hope that helps!

Joanne EastonThursday 13th August 2020

Made this today, and was very flavoursome, I didn’t add the bacon as wanted just onion quiche so I cooked 3 red onions. I will definitely use this recipe again and try mushroom next time
Thank you x

    HollyThursday 13th August 2020

    Hi Joanne, so glad you enjoyed the Crustless Quiche Lorraine and your swaps sound great!

RhiannonFriday 7th August 2020

I absolutely adore this recipe but cannot for the life of me work out why my quiche takes over an hour to cook properly ? I use a 7inch tin but even after 45 minutes it all liquids still ? still an amazingly delicious meal and well worth the wait ?

    LisaFriday 7th August 2020

    Hi Rhiannon
    Our timing are based on using a 24cm tin, which is about 10 inches, so that may be why! Glad you love the recipe though.

      AnneMonday 10th August 2020

      Could this be cooked in a sandwich pan

      LisaWednesday 12th August 2020

      Hi Anne
      You can cook this in any oven proof container or tin, but our timings are based on a 24cm round tin. You may need to adjust the timings if you use a different size. Don’t use a loose bottomed tin as the egg will leak out. Hope this helps

JulieMonday 20th July 2020

Hi, I was just wondering if vegetarian bacon would work as well? I know it isnt cooked for long, so would it be better to defrost it and let it cook in the oven?

    HollyMonday 27th July 2020

    Hi Julie, we haven’t tried using vegetarian bacon but I’m sure it would work just fine. I would suggest in step 2 cooking the onions until they are just soft then add in the bacon and fry until just coloured then follow the rest of the steps the same. Hope that helps and let us know how you get on.

Kristin RaeMonday 6th July 2020

I’m in the US, what can I substitute for the quark? We don’t have that here 🙁

    HollyTuesday 7th July 2020

    Hi Kristen, you could swap the quark for low calorie cream cheese. Hope that helps!
