Almond Crusted Keto Quiche

Keto Recipes > Breakfast

I make a ton of frittatas, whether they’re in muffin version, in the cast iron, or just in a casserole – they’re fantastic. But I do miss that crusty crumbly pastry on the outside. So, I set out to re-create a quiche!

Frittatas save extremely well for me in the fridge, lasting all week and sometimes longer, and it’s the same with this! Can you say breakfast every day for the rest of the week?

The only thing that I had a problem with, was the first slice. I had to ruin the crust on it to dig it out of the casserole tray in order to use a spatula on the other pieces. Don’t worry though, I still ate it.

Feel free to make this your own – add spinach, sausage, ham, salami, onions, or whatever other filling that might catch your fancy. If you plan to do this often, try to mix it up and creating new flavor combinations so you don’t get bored of having the same thing every day. You can also make a remoulade or a aioli to give extra or different flavors.

  3. Combine all crust ingredients and knead into a ball. Press dough into an 11x7 casserole dish.

  6. In a container, add eggs, cheese, Mrs. Dash, salt, pepper, bacon, green peppers, and garlic. You can add all the bacon fat into this also.
  7. Mix the egg mixture well, then pour into the crust.
  8. Bake again for 15-18 minutes and then remove to cool. Optional: Broil quiche for 3-5 minutes before taking out of the oven.
