Keto Quiche Recipe with Bacon & Cheese
This simple and delicious Keto Quiche Recipe with crunchy bacon & cheese makes a quick and easy breakfast.
- 6 eggs
- ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream
- 6 pieces of bacon cooked and crumbled
- 1 ½ cup Colby Jack Cheese, grated
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp bacon grease reserved from cooking the bacon (optional to grease skillet)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fry 6 pieces of bacon and reserve 1 tbsp of bacon grease to grease the 10.25 inch cast iron skillet. (I use this skillet.)
In a bowl, crack 6 eggs, then add 4 pieces of crumbled bacon, ⅔ cup heavy whipping cream, 1 cup of the cheese, and salt/pepper.
Whisk well to incorporate air into the egg mixture to make it light and fluffy. You can also an immersion blender.
Grease cast iron skillet if needed. I one tbsp bacon grease reserved from cooking the bacon. Pour egg mixture into cast iron skillet.
Bake for 19 minutes, then remove from oven and sprinkle 1/2 cup of cheese and 2 pieces of crumbled bacon on top.
Place in oven on top rack for 1-2 more minutes until the cheese begins to melt.
Variations to Crustless Quiche Recipe:
Can I Make this Crustless Quiche the night before?
Sure! You can make it ahead and bake within the next 1-2 days. I would suggest setting it on the counter so that it can warm to room temperature before baking. If you can't do that, it may take a few more minutes to bake since you will be putting it in the oven cold.
Is it better to freeze quiche cooked or uncooked?
You have to be extra careful to freeze it uncooked as you transport to the freezer and place where it won't be disturbed until fully frozen. If it is already baked, it will keep two to three months in the freezer. If frozen before baking, it will keep for up to a month.
How to reheat this recipe?
Crustless Keto Quiche reheats well. Cover the entire dish with foil so it doesn't burn and reheat in a 350-degree oven for 20 minutes. You can reheat individual slices in the microwave or covered with foil in the oven.
How long can I keep low carb quiche in the fridge?
After it is baked, it should be refrigerated within two hours. It will stay fresh in the fridge for three to four days.
- Change out the meat to sausage or leftover ham.
- Add veggies like bell peppers, onion, mushrooms, spinach, etc. (I would suggest precooking veggies to make sure any fillings added are as dry as possible.)
- Add seasoning like garlic powder or onion powder
- Add an ounce of softened cream cheese to the egg mixture before baking
- Use muffin tins instead of a pie plate.
