This easy low carb keto Crustless Spinach Quiche with bacon adapted from the original Atkins quiche recipe is great for those following the Atkins Induction phase (phase 1). Haven’t tried the recipe yet but plan on making it for family reunion and oven space is always an issue. Here is my most popular quiche recipe, it’s an Asparagus, Mushroom, and Cheddar Quiche that can be made with just 10 minutes of preparation time. Quiche or tart pan It’s best to use a 9-inch metal pan with a removable bottom.
Scatter spinach evenly over cheese (breaking up clumps as best you can), then pour egg mixture over top. Make ahead: The crust can be blind baked up to two days in advance and stored wrapped at room temperature. Great British Bake Off star James Morton is a big fan of the kind of hearty farmhouse cooking that we grew up on and his Bacon and Leek Quiche is a stunning example of it.
Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake another 25-30 minutes, or until the middle of the quiche has puffed slightly. In those early pies, the crust was merely a vessel for containing the fillings while they slowly baked. This variation of a classic quiche recipe combines smoked turkey breast with Swiss cheese, eggs and cream.
My flaw was that I only weighted the bottom of the quiche when I par-baked it, so the sides collapsed partially and left holes in the sides of the crust. Let cool slightly, then remove tart ring from pan and slide quiche onto a wire rack. Next time I think I’ll add more veggies to the quiche itself – it felt like it could handle a little more bulk.
Nevertheless, since my quiche did not go all the way to the top once baked, theoretically, either method would work. This lower-calorie crustless quiche gets its flavor from turkey Italian sausage, veggies and two kinds of cheese. I completely agree that all that work making a pie crust and cooking the filling and letting the eggs set up in the oven for a flimsy eight-slice quiche is not worth it. This monster of a quiche definitely solves that problem.
