Breakfast Quiche

So as I've mentioned before I'm on this horrible low carb diet. I spend day after day checking carbs, reading labels and doing lots of math to try and figure out what I can eat. Well one thing I can eat that makes for a good breakfast is crustless quiche. You really can make these any way you want to.

This time it is Turkey Bacon/Swiss/Green Onion and each one is only 2 carbs. Really you can use about any ingredients you want to though but it will change the carb (and other nutrition) values.

Base Recipe:

2 cups of eggs (I use Eggbeaters because I'm also watching cholesterol)
1/4 cup veggies (green pepper, green onion, onions, whatever you want)
3/4 cup shredded cheese (swiss, pepper jack, colby, cheddar... you get the idea)
1 cup of meat (cooked ham is real good in this but any precooked meat would work well)

Step 1
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray with oil or grease 12 muffin cups.

Step 2
Mix veggies, cheese and meat together in a bowl

Step 3
Pour into muffin cup the eggs. Spoon out the veggie mix and try to distribute evenly.

Step 4
Put eggs into oven after oven has been preheated. Cook for 18-20 minutes and then let cool.

These can be served right away or you can freeze them. If you freeze them then I suggest wrapping them in a paper towel and microwaving for 1 minute on one side and then flipping it and cooking 1 additional minute.


  1. Those look good. I should make some and freeze for busy mornings.

    1. They work well and any combination will really work which means you can really get some interesting combos. One of these times I think I'm going to try some sage sausage in it with cheddar. :)
