Crustless Broccoli Bacon Quiche

Crustless Broccoli Bacon Quiche

The recipe for Crustless Broccoli Bacon Quiche is one of my favorite recipes.  It is low in carbs, nutritious and delicious. I make it very often for my family, first of all because they love it and second, because it is a very easy breakfast or lunch item that can be taken to work. Have a slice in the morning with your favorite coffee, or make a salad and have the quiche with it for lunch. Delicious!


I always try to get creative in the kitchen, so I use any kind of vegetables I have in the refrigerator. Sometimes is broccoli, but it could be also spinach, onion and pepper, asparagus, or mushrooms. You can definitely use ham instead of bacon. I am also interested in eating clean and healthy, so the eggs and sour cream I use are always organic. I also use quality cheese.


However, I had people asking me what do I put in my quiche and why is it different than other recipes out there. I believe it is the cream or the sour cream I mix with the eggs, instead of using milk or half and half as you will see in many American recipes. In fact, I discovered recently reading the Larousse Gastronomique, that the original recipe for quiche has a base made with beaten eggs and cream, or cream fraiche, the European substitute for our American sour cream. I was happy to learn that, as I always used sour cream in my quiche recipes, thinking about the texture.


I also have some other quiche recipes you can try like Crustless Spinach with Smoked Meat and Gouda Cheese . If you have guests or a potluck, this recipe of Vegetarian mini quiche is a great one. Or maybe you would like to make a simple crust for your quiche? Here you have a lovely, easy one.
