Crustless Spinach Cheese Quiche | Keto | Low Carb

Updated: Mar 6, 2019

Quiche is one of my favorite low carb dishes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. You won't even know the crust is missing. It is rich and decadent loaded with nutrient-rich spinach. The cheese melts and mingles with every bite. This quiche is so easy to make and tastes great. I like tho make it the beginning of the week so you I can reheat and eat for any weekday meal. Use whatever cheeses you like in this quiche. Such as goat cheese, mozzarella cheese, or monterey jack cheese, etc. Or use a combination of your favorite cheeses.

Crustless Spinach Cheese Quiche | Keto | Low Carb

Makes: 8 Servings


Ingredients:

8 eggs

3/4 cup heavy whipping cream (heavy cream)

1 1/2 cups Monterey Jack cheese (or Cheddar, Mozzarella, Swiss, Goat etc.)*

6 to 8 oz fresh spinach, roughly chopped

1 small onion, chopped

1 T butter

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

salt and black pepper to taste (approx 1/2 to 3/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper)


*Another option for cheese would be to do 3-cheeses: (1/3 cup goat cheese 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese, 2 to 4 tablespoons Asiago cheese)


Directions:

  1. In a pan, melt 1 T butter. Saute onion in butter until softened. Set aside in a bowl to cool a bit. In the same pan, add fresh spinach and cook just until wilted, drain well.

  2. Prepare a pie plate or 8x8 glass dish by spraying with olive or oil or Pam. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  3. In a large bowl, mix eggs & cream. Add shredded cheese, cooled onion, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Stir until combined. Place spinach in your pie plate/baking dish. Top with egg mixture. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until center is just set. Note: the quiche will rise while baking, but will settle as it cools. A simple glass pie plate works great for baking a crustless quiche
