Breakfast Layered Crustless Quiche - makes a delicious and filling breakfast, it is packed with protein and can be served hot or cold.
Breakfast Layered Bake
Gotta love a make-ahead breakfast recipe like this which you can make up in advance so that breakfast is as simple as just warming up each morning along with a mug of coffee or cup of tea.
With most people on busy schedules during the week (some even at the weekend too), it can be hard to put together a high protein filling breakfast each morning. This will ensure you are kept well satiated and is a much better choice over a quick high sugar bowl of cereal.
Veggies for Breakfast Layered Crustless Quiche
Don't be scared to adjust this with to what veggies you have, there really is no right or wrong here, so long as you keep to around the same ratios you can easily vary this up each week to make it slightly different.
In the recipe I use the following:
- Homemade ground sausage (using pork mince)
- Red Pepper
- Sweet Potato
but some other things you could use are
- Bacon or Ham instead of sausage
- Different coloured peppers
- Butternut squash instead of sweet potato
- Spinach instead of kale
- Tomatoes (but keep those to meaty varieties that don't release too much juice)
- Grated cheese on top (don't forget to syn if not using it as a healthy extra A choice)
Can I make this vegetarian?
You may like the sound of this recipe, but are vegetarian or want to just keep it meat-free, so what can you use instead of the ground pork?
Some great substitutions are meat-free alternatives like quorn or veggie sausages. Just be aware that not all are syn free, so you may need to add some additional syns.
You can also leave out the meat altogether and keep to just sweet potato, but I would increase the amount of grated sweet potato slightly.
Can you freeze this breakfast layered crustless quiche?
Yep you sure can, This will freeze perfectly. I recommend slicing into portions and freezing individually. It should keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To reheat, ensure you fully defrost and then you can warm up in the oven or microwave. Ensuring it is heated through before digging in and enjoying.

- 500g of extra lean ground pork (or chicken or turkey mince or broken up veggie sausages
- 1 large onion, finely chopped
- ½ tsp of sage
- 1.5 tsp of paprika
- ½ tsp of garlic powder
- ½ tsp of onion powder
- salt and black pepper
- 300g of sweet potato (or sub for butternut squash), grated
- 1 red pepper diced
- 4 cups of chopped kale (or other leafy greens, spinach works well too), remove stalks
- 120ml (½ cup) of passata
- 120ml (½ cup) of chicken stock
- splash of balsamic vinegar
- salt and black pepper to season
- 8 eggs
- cooking oil spray (I used avocado)
- Add the ground pork and half the onion to a frying pan and fry until browned and onion is softened.
- Add the sage, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder and season with salt and pepper.
- Stir in the grated sweet potato until all is combined. Then add this to an ovenproof dish.
- Spray the frying pan with cooking oil spray and add the peppers, remaining onion, kale, passata, stock and splash of balsamic vinegar to the pan and heat gently until veg is slightly softened. If you find it dries too much, just add a little more passata and stock, but don't make the mixture too wet, you just want the peppers and kale, lightly covered in a tomato sauce.
- Add this to the ovenproof dish, over the pork mixture.
- Preheat oven to 180c (fan 160c) or 350f (gas mark 4)
- Whisk eggs, season well with salt and black pepper and pour over the layers in the ovenproof dish, slightly moving the mixture with a wooden spoon, so the beaten eggs distribute evenly in the dish.
- Place in the oven and bake until the egg mixture has completely set on top and is golden, approx 40 mins.
- Slice and serve
