Is a crustless quiche a frittata?
Although a quiche traditionally has a pastry crust, this is not a frittata but still holds it's title of quiche. This is because a quiche has a custard filling, being beaten eggs with cream. A frittata is beaten eggs.
How to make a crustless salmon quiche
Although you could bake this in a large quiche tin, I made 6 smaller quiches using 4 inch silicon cases. I wanted smaller individual quiches for the Chief Taster's packed lunch rather than slices from a large quiche.
For the salmon I used cooked salmon fillets that I had left over. Smoked salmon or even tinned salmon could work just as well.
The spinach was defrosted as I wanted to make this a quick recipe. Fresh spinach can be used too. Or even cooked kale.
Making a crustless quiche is a simple as beating eggs with cream. Adding your fillings into a quiche case, pour the egg mixture in, add any seasonings or cheese and bake!
