Crustless Sage Quiche… For A Healthy, Savory Breakfast

When it comes to making healthy real food meals for my family… I’m always learning, and I never feel like I’m doing a good enough job.

Can you relate?

I still have processed food cravings. I still struggle with making and sticking with meal plans. I’m on a sliding scale with the good-better-best list.

It’s tough. Habits, especially bad ones, are hard to break. Thankfully life is a journey, and I can definitely see improvements in this particular area compared to 5 years ago (even 3 and 1 year ago as well).

One of the biggest areas of struggle I have is breakfast.

My newest “real food” switch has been to ditch the breakfast cereal (yes the “healthy” ones) in exchange for made-from-scratch breakfasts. Even though that was a year ago, I’ve found that I’m not a “get up in the morning and make a large homemade breakfast” kinda mom. Unless it’s a holiday, birthday, or some other special occasion, I just don’t have the desire to get up and go through all that. Plus, did I mention that I don’t have a dishwasher in my house? Yeah… so I’m not up for tons of dishes in the morning either!

No matter, I’ve learned how to make several different types of breakfast that are simple, fairly quick, and healthy. Recently I’ve even tried dedicating each day of the week to a certain type of breakfast food which stays the same week after week. For example, Mondays we have oatmeal. It’s not the same oatmeal recipe every week, but oatmeal is quick to make, healthy, and there are lots of variation. So far this new method is working pretty well for us.

Wednesday’s in our house is some sort of egg breakfast. Of course it can have veggies, meats, sauces, etc. in it, but the idea is that it’s heavy on farm fresh eggs.

Today I wanna share one of my families favorite egg recipes with you. This recipe is for a Crustless Sage Quiche, and it’s great on its own or with a little salsa and sour cream on top! Bonus points for garnishing with fresh cilantro as well!

Crustless Sage Quiche

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten (preferably straight from the chicken)
  • 1 Tbs all-purpose flour (this is the brand I use)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh sage leaves
  • 1 small clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbs freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tbs heavy cream (I use our raw milk cream)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbs refined coconut oil (use unrefined if you don’t mind the flavor)

Directions:

  1. Combine the eggs and flour in a mixing bowl and beat well.
  2. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the coconut oil.
  3. Grease a 6-inch round baking dish with the coconut oil and pour in the egg mixture.
  4. Bake in a preheated 325F oven for about 30 minutes, until risen and set but still soft.
What’s your favorite quick and easy real food breakfast to make for your kids?

  1. From your picture it looks like all your herbs migrated to the top while baking. Does this affect the taste? I have a large sage bush in the back yard and would like to start using it more so I am really interested in recipes that use sage but I’m not sure about this quiche with all the herbs on top.

    1. They do rise to the top Michele, but it doesn’t affect the taste. We put salsa and sour cream on ours with some cilantro added to it. Once it’s all cut up it blends together and tastes great! Hope it works for you. If not, I’m sure you’ll find some others that will. Best of luck!

  2. I love sage! I just planted some seeds so it will be a little while until I have my own to use but this looks like the perfect way to use it!

  3. Megan I love your crustless sage quiche idea. Sound so healthy!
    Another quick and easy way to make a quick breakfast that I make is scrambled eggs/ground up cooked ham, I use sweet basil, and dill weed on top. Add unrefined salt, cayenne peppers. On the side, I cooked fried potatoes or sweet potatoes slice thin with butter. Toasted homemade chia/turmeric bread with fresh sliced garlic from the garden on top. This is my son’s favorite breakfast.
    Another breakfast is crepe, it’s simple, you can add whatever filling you have availabile.Add lightly powder sugar or just plain cinnamon on top. Put 4 eggs,1 T of flour, 1 tsp of vanilla, 1 tsp of baking powder,all in the blender and use your largest frying pan add butter, make it thin, add filling (I use preserved or pumpkin butter I canned)and roll it up. Cut in half for smaller kids, adults can have a large whole crepe. It a French dish. You can add any meat on the side, if you wish.
