Keto/Low Carb Crustless Ham And Swiss Cheese Quiche




Hey loves!

I've made another keto-friendly recipe and couldn't help but share it with you, my friends.

Anyone who has dabbled in the ketogenic diet or a low carb/high fat lifestyle knows that eggs, those wonderful packets of fat and protein, can become a very tired food item. You can only do scrambled eggs so many times before you get sick of them. Even MY scrambled eggs, with a splash of cream, and plenty of salt and pepper, become a bit of a chore to eat. Also, as anyone who eats a ketogenic diet or a low carb/high fat lifestyle, there are few foods that fit into those lifestyles as completely as eggs.

So what do you do?

You come up with interesting ways of having your eggs and ENJOYING them too!

All my Keto/low carb babes have got to try this. Even if you're not keto or low carb you will love this recipe as well. It's a crustless quiche with ham and swiss cheese! Not only is this quiche crustless, but it has no flour in it so that makes the carbs take a dive in this fight. I actually prefer my quiche without crust so this suited me pretty well. I also don't generally eat a whole lot of cheese, so this is one of the few ways I enjoy lots of cheese in a dish.

So, if you enjoy breakfast for dinner, let's get this show on the road.

Ingredients-

Large Eggs - 5, scrambled
Ham - 1 1/2 Cup, cubed small
Heavy Cream - 1 Cup
Shredded Swiss Cheese - 1 1/2 Cup (I used a swiss and gruyere mix that Meijer had on sale)
White Onion - 3/4 Cup, finely chopped
Extra Virgin Olive Oil - 1 tsp.
Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp. fresh cracked
Chives - 2 Tbsp, finely chopped
Salt to taste

Start off by prepping the ingredients. Get everything cut up and separated. Then get your oven preheated to 350 degrees. While your oven is preheating, pour the olive oil into a saute pan and heat it up to medium-high heat. Once heated, add the onions and stir occasionally until they become translucent. Then add the ham cubes and continue stirring to get some crispiness on the ham and onions. Remove the ham and onions from the heat and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream thoroughly to make a smooth custard. Then add the ham, onions, cheese, chives and salt and stir to get the ingredients evenly incorporated. Pour the mixture into a lightly greased pie pan. I used a clear Pyrex pan. Crack the black pepper over the quiche before gently sliding it into the heated oven.

Bake your quiche for 45 minutes. All of the moisture on the top of the quiche should be cooked out and you should see a nice brown crust where the quiche meets the pan. Remove the quiche from the oven and set it on a cooling rack. Slice it up and serve warm. Chop some fresh chives and garnish your favorite slice of quiche before eating it up as quickly as possible.

And that does it! I hope you are enjoying this quiche recipe. You can use whatever fillings you want to make it your own. Maybe some spinach and feta or even use some provolone, thinly sliced sirloin, green peppers, onions and mushrooms to make a philly cheese quiche. I can say that I am glad that I found this swiss/gruyere mix in the store. It took the cheese to another level! However, you try this recipe, I hope you enjoy it! Leave a comment and share with your friends. Most of all, have a wonderful day!
