Easy Low-Carb Breakfast Quiche

I don’t know why, but I’ve always found the idea of making a “quiche” quite intimidating. Maybe because the french word sounds fancy and that implies that it’s difficult to make. Since I’m trying out the Banting lifestyle, I decided this morning that I would give it a go. This is a no-crust quiche so that skips the difficult part, and also makes it extra low-carb! Still, it turned out super and fluffy and delicious and tastes like everything that you’d think a quiche should taste like.


Serves 4-6

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup bacon bits or ham (or both)
  • 1 chopped onion
  • some sliced black olives

Here’s how:

Step 1:  Preheat oven to 180˚C. Butter or spray an oven proof dish or quiche pan.

Step 2:  Beat the eggs and cream together. Add salt and pepper to taste

Step 3:  Fry the onion, bacon and mushrooms in a little butter before adding to the egg mixture. I added some cumin. cayenne pepper and dried mixed herbs for extra flavor.

Step 4:  Pour the mixture into the dish and bake for 45 minutes until golden brown.

Tip: You can skip the meat and add cherry tomatoes, spinach, asparagus and capers for a vegetarian quiche.

Tip: Make individual portions by separating mixture into ramekins.
