Post your quiche recipes here!

So quick and easy to use leftovers, quiches are a low-carb staple
Here's one of my favorite breakfast (or anytime) ones:

Chorizo, Zucchini and Tomato Quiche

8oz beef chorizo (I used Andy Garcia brand, 570 cals;3g carbs, 1g fiber for 8oz)
3/4 cup diced zucchini (10cals, 2g carbs, 1g fiber)
1/4 cup diced onion (15 cals; 4g carbs; 1g fiber)
2 roma tomatoes, sliced (70 cals;14g carbs; 2g fiber)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (320 cals; 4g carbs)
5 egglands best large eggs (350 cals; 2g carbs)
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 and spray a pie plate with cooking spray.
Cook chorizo over medium heat until it breaks apart, then add the zucchini and onion and saute until veggies are softened, about 3 minutes.
Place in the bottom of the pie plate, top with the sliced tomatoes and cheese.
Whisk eggs until well blended and add salt and pepper. (If you want to lessen the eggy taste, use 4 eggs and 1/4 cup half and half).
Pour over the ingredients in the pie pan and tap on counter to settle it in.
Bake for approx 25-35 minutes or until cooked through.
Let cool 30 minutes before cutting.

recipe: 1335 cals; 29g carbs; 5g fiber (per serving for 6 servings: 223 cals; 4.8g carbs; just under 1g fiber).

SPINACH QUICHE
A delicious recipe given to me by my dear mother-in-law, Kay Eloff, who lives in Cape Town, South Africa. She is one of the most talented people I know. This quiche also makes a great vegetarian entrée, if you leave out the bacon! My husband ordinarily does not like cooked spinach, however, he raved about this.

Crust:
1/2 cup ground almonds (125 mL)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese (75 mL)
2 tbsp soy OR spelt flour (25 mL)
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted (45 mL)
1 egg yolk
Filling:
6 bacon slices
1 whole large leek, cut thin diagonally
1, 10 oz package frozen spinach (300 g)
8 oz light cream cheese, softened (250 g)
1 cup sour cream (250 mL)
5 extra-large eggs, beaten
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled (125 g)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (125 mL)

Crust: In medium bowl, combine ground almonds, grated Parmesan cheese, soy or spelt flour, melted butter and egg yolk. Press into 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 10 minutes.

Filling: In large skillet, cook bacon until just before it gets crisp. Set aside to drain on paper towels. In bacon fat, cook leeks over medium heat until soft. Squeeze liquid out of spinach and add to leeks along with bacon. In food processor or in bowl with electric mixer, process cream cheese. Add sour cream; process. Add eggs one at a time, while processing, until smooth. Stir in feta cheese and half Parmesan cheese. Pour mixture over vegetables and bacon; stir to combine well. Pour over prepared crust.

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven 50 minutes, or until set. Allow to stand 10 minutes before cutting. Sprinkle remaining Parmesan cheese over top.

Variation: The original recipe had 2, 10-oz packages of frozen spinach in it, as well as the whites only of 2 leeks. (7.0 g Carbs)

Helpful Hints: This vegetable quiche makes a nice lunch as well, served with a salad and fresh low-carb bread.

Wow!!!! Great thread Dottie!!!

Jennifer .. do you think the Spinach quiche (minus the bacon) would hold up as a crustless quiche, or does the cream cheese make it very soft? I have nut allergies in my house, so I do not make anything with nuts if I want to serve it to the family.

I'd appreciate your thoughts on it. Your MIL's quiche sounds unbelievable!!!!!!

You can also make quiche in muffin cups and store to eat during the week, they can be frozen. I did this with LindaSue's Sausage Quiche this week.

I've done crustless quiches with cream cheese in them - never had a problem with them being too soft :-)

Thanks Sue I will be trying Jennifer's quiche next week, with some alterations for our tastes: no bacon, crustless and probably subbing yogurt for the sour cream. The feta, cream cheese and leeks have me sold on this one! lol!!!

I'm already planning variations on it - this is going to be a weekly meal. Maybe twice a week - ground beef & bacon, chicken & bacon, pork & bacon

LOL Cynthia, I take it you like bacon! Bacon rules!

TaDa, thanks, you know this quiche of my MIL's is absolutely delicious. You are smart to spot that. Yes, you can make it without a crust.

I am going to post my nut-free bake mix for you, so that you can use that whenever you see goodies calling for almond flour.

Thanks Jennifer!

We tried the quiche tonight with a few changes for different dietary stuff we are dealing with and it was amazing! I could imagine it is even much better with a crust!!! I will not clutter up this thread with variations, but if anyone would like to see the altered recipe it is here:

TaDa! The Lifelong Journey!!

Jennifer, please thank Kay for me!! This is a keeper .. oh and my nine year old got all bent out of shape when I proposed that my oldest dd (also vegetarian) and I have the remaining pieces tomorrow night when the rest have steak ... so I have to give the girls the remaining slices!!!!

Definitely!

Believe it or not - I made it two nights ago WITHOUT BACON

I used cooked chopped chicken, mushrooms, basil/garlic/salt/black pepper, and Swiss cheese. Awesomeness.

Now, if I'd had any bacon...

Our favorite is a crustless bacon, cheddar & chive. I usually use 6-8 eggs, 1/4 cup of sour cream, 4 slices of crispy bacon, about a cup of shredded cheddar, and fresh chives.

Maybe my new favorite recipe!
You all know the hamburger, rotel, cream cheese recipe? Well, I decided to make it a quiche and it is so good!

1/2lb lean ground beef
4oz cream cheese
1 can ro-tel tomatoes w/green chilies
1 cup cheddar cheese
5 large eggs beaten w/1/2tsp salt and a pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350f.
Brown and drain the ground beef then add the tomatoes and cook until most of the liquid is gone, then stir in the cream cheese to melt. Let cool (important).
Spray a deep dish pie pan with cooking spray.
Mix everything together and pour into prepared pan.
Bake for about 30 minutes, or until the center is set. Remove from oven and let sit 10 minutes before cutting, to allow it to finish cooking and hold together.

Entire recipe is: 1580 cals; 14g carbs; 3g fiber
Per serving (6 servings) : 263 cal; 2g carbs

I've become a huge quiche fan and am now making a big quiche in a 9x13 pan, slicing it into 6 pieces and using Rubbermaid divided freezer containers to put a piece of quiche and some veggies(I stock up on Krogers brand when they go on sale for .77) on the other side for a breakfast or brunch meal. So yummy. Here's how I make mine and there is no exact science but in general:

6 eggs
About a cup of milk (you can use cream or half and half as well)
About 1/4 cup Ranch dressing
2 Tbls mustard
12 oz package of bacon, sliced and cooked
Frozen bag of spinach (12 oz) sauteed with frozen sliced peppers and fresh mushrooms quantity to your preference (Kroger has a yummy pepper onions
mix that goes on sale for .77 all the time!) use the bacon grease to sautee them and toss in some fresh garlic if you have that on hand as well. I like to use this recipe to use up any extra herbs or veggies I have on hand.
About 3 Tbls. chopped jalapenos(I use canned and freeze them in icecube trays for recipes)
6 oz. sliced/diced swiss cheese
4 oz. shredded sharp cheddar

Mix this all together and bake in a greased pan for 45 mimutes at 350. I reheat them from frozen with the lid removed but placed on top of the container for 5 minutes and they come out perfect
