Keto Quiche Recipe

I’m not familiar with egg bakes such as a quiche. My mom used to make sort of a quiche for breakfast but without a crust. I needed a bit of inspiration of where to start to make sure I nailed the flavor so a fellow blogger helped. House of Nash Eats had a delicious looking quiche that I adopted for the keto diet. There were 5 star reviews and after tasting it I see why. The quiche was creamy and fluffy. Caramelized onions, cheese and bacon paired so well together on top of the buttery almond flour crust I created.

Is Quiche Keto?

Yes it is, when done properly. The issue with a quiche is it’s made with a pie crust. Which are full of carbs because crust are typically made from flour. Here we use a crust with only 2 ingredients. That are almond flour and butter, that’s it! You don’t have to pre-bake the crust and when it’s done the pie crust is still flakey.

How To Make A Keto Quiche

First, you have to caramelize the onions. Using the same method from my caramelized onions and mushrooms recipe you will need butter and oil. Don’t forget your salt and pepper as well.

Next, after that’s done it’s time to cook the bacon. I recommend chopping the bacon up ahead of time rather than cooking it first. Bring your bacon to a crispy texture or however you prefer it.

Then, in a large mixing bowl crack all 6 eggs. Pour in heavy cream and add salt and pepper. With a hand mixer beat eggs and cream until well mixed.

Toss in caramelized onions, bacon and shredded cheese and mix a little more. Grab your keto pie crust and pour in the filling.

Next, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes then allow to set and cool. Center may have a little jiggle but this is fine because it’ll set while cooling.

How To Store Quiche

After the quiche is done and cool save some for later. This is a very calorie heavy recipe, not to mention all the ingredients you don’t want to go to waste. Store in the refrigerator 5 to 7 days in a sealed container. Also, you can freeze keto quiche but I recommend in a vacuumed seal bag to save freshness.

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Do not bake your almond flour pie crust before making the quiche. This is a common practice that you can save time by not doing. The pie crust will still come out buttery and flakey.
  • Customize your own. This can serve as a base recipe and you switch it up and add mix in’s you love.
  • Do not over-bake. As mentioned above the center will have a little jiggle when you remove it. The quiche continues to cook and comes out puffed up. As it cools the puffiness goes away and the eggs settle in the crust.
  • Want a crustless option? Just skip the almond flour crust!

Pie Crust

  • 1.5 cup blanced almond flour

Instructions
 

Prepare the pie crust

  • Melt butter, then in a large mixing bowl add almond flour. Pour butter on top and mix with a fork or spoon until all of the flour is saturated with the butter.
  • Pour into pie baking dish and begin pressing almond flour on the bottom and sides as even as possible. I used a 9 in pie baking pan that wasn't very deep. There is enough ingredients here to fill the bottom and come up on the sides. Just continue to press. See picture on the side here.

Caramelize onions and cook bacon

  • Dice onion up or cut in slices. I recommened diced in this recipe for more even distribution. In a frying pan on medium high heat add oil and then diced onion. Add salt and pepper then allow onions to caramelize. Right before onions are done when they have withered add in butter and finish cooking.
  • Cut bacon up prior to cooking. Fry baon until fully cooked and crispy

Bake Quiche

  • Crack 6 eggs in a mxing bowl and pour in heavy cream. Add in salt and pepper as well. With a hand mixer beat eggs and cream together evenly.

  • Mix in then pour into pie crust
  • Cover with aluminum foil then bake for 35 minutes. Remove foil then bake for a remaining 15 minutes
