I love a good quiche for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

This keto quiche might look basic but it is packed with flavor from the flaky crust to the ooey-gooey cheese overload. You will not want to miss eating a slice of this low-carb quiche. It’s so good, you’d never guess the crust is keto-friendly.

Hip Tips:

There are endless quiche possibilities! You can try adding bacon, spinach, mushrooms, or even broccoli to create a broccoli and cheese quiche. You really have the freedom in a quiche to make it into anything you desire. Use this recipe as a platform and build from it.


Poke holes in the crust before baking to prevent any air pockets your egg mixture could get into.


Bake on the bottom rack of the oven to ensure every inch gets cooked slowly and the crust doesn’t get burnt.


You will want the center of your quiche to be a little “jiggly” when removing from the oven. Don’t worry, let it sit on the stove, it will continue to cook the center. You want the center to be fluffy and not an overcooked scrambled egg.

    Could you skip the crust all together?

    • Suz

      I bake a crustless quiche now…since going low carb. I just spray my pie dish or whatever baking dish you want to use. Reduce time a little and watch it toward the end. It does kinda make/form a very thin brown “crust” but not hard…it does hold together as you take a piece out. I use a recipe from my Jr League cookbook…but will try this sometime.

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        Thanks so much, Suz!

  2. Tammy

    When making a crustless quiche in a glass pie pan, I use the microwave. Cook at 70% in turn table mode for 12 minutes. Faster and doesn’t heat up the kitchen in the summer. Different cheeses, meats and vegetable combinations depending on what appeals or I have on hand.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks a ton for sharing what has worked for you, Tammy! Good to know!
