Corn and Bacon Mini Crustless Quiches

Hello Dear Reader,

These little quiches came about as I wanted to take something quite portable to have as part of a picnic with my sister and her grandchildren on a days outing. Well, while I was making these cute little quiches my sister rang to say that her plans had changed and the outing wouldn't be going ahead.  Boo, I was so disappointed as I don't get to see my little family very often, we are all busy unfortunately.

These little quiches are quite delightful though and we had them for lunch the next day, I went with really soft flavours that would be child friendly but interesting enough for adult to love them too, I think I succeeded as they were polished off the very next day. You could easily double the recipe and freeze some for later and they are sturdy enough to carry for a school or work lunch as well.

Ingredients for Corn and Bacon Mini Crustless Quiches, clockwise from top right-
2 bacon rashers, sliced into small batons, 1/2 cup grated cheese plus extra for sprinkling over the top of mini quiches before baking, 1 spring onion, finely chopped, 3 tablespoons plain flour, 1 garlic clove, grated on a microplane, 4 large eggs, 2 tablespoons of cream (not pictured) and 140 gram creamed corn

Preheat oven to 175C. Sauté bacon until starting to crisp up, go golden and is cooked through, set aside to cool

In a large bowl, whisk 2 eggs until light and fluffy then add the flour and whisk again until lump free and smooth. Then add the other 2 eggs and whisk again until smooth and silky

Now add the creamed corn and the 2 tablespoons of cream

Again whisk until well combined

Add the cooled bacon

Spring onions and the grated cheese

Spoon into greased and lined muffin trays or use silicon muffin moulds like I did. I have had these silicon moulds for years and have used them countless times. Sprinkle a little of the reserved cheese over each mini quiche

Bake in a 175 C oven for 20 to 25 minutes until just golden and cooked through

There you go, a lovely, easy to carry lunch, suitable for the whole family. What do you make for a portable lunch that the whole family loves?

Have a lovely day

  1. Another easy and quick recipe. Thanks Fi. I thought this might be a good snack for our teenagers Bible Study Group. They are always ravenous after school. I have frozen corn in the fridge and am wondering if I could use that and just add a tiny bit more cream?

    1. Has Gail,
      Yes I am sure that would work, it is a pretty solid mixture once it’s cooked, so the substitutions should work fine. Hope the teenagers enjoy them. Have a lovely evening,

  2. Those quiches look lovely. We love Coronation chicken - you have to plan ahead a bit for it but its worthwhile. Another favourite particularly at the beach is sausages wrapped in foil so they're still warm or cold with potato salad. Can't wait for beach days this summer!

    1. Hi Penny,
      I have heard of Coronation Chicken, but I have never made it, I looked up the recipe and it sounds divine. And who doesn’t love a sausage sizzle, simple and delicious, especially when eaten at the beach, everything tastes better at the beach. Have a lovely day,
