I'm putting together a grocery list for a brunch I plan to host New Year's Day, and it occurred to me that I had not posted this recipe here. I make it quite often. It's easy, it's low carb, and it rereheats well in the microwave. Plus, everyone seems to love it! Truth be told, real men DO eat quiche, especially when it's as tasty as this. Very Happy

Basic Quiche (Low Carb)

This is another of my favorites. I always double it and put it in a 9x13 casserole dish, because it's great for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It even tastes good cold!

4 eggs
1 1/2 c. cream (or half and half, but cream has fewer carbs)
2 c. grated cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Grease bottom of dish with butter. Sprinkle cheese on bottom of pan. Mix together eggs and cream. Pour over cheese. Bake uncovered at 400 for 15 minutes, then lower temp to 350 and bake another 30 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing.

Options

What's so neat about this recipe is that you can add whatever you're in the mood for. My most frequent additions are: 1 lb. Bob Evans bulk sausage, browned; 1 or 2 red peppers, chopped; 8 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced; and shredded cheddar.

Other good combos include: leftover taco meat with olives and jalapenos; shrimp, chicken, or imitation crab with asparagus or spinach; mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Whatever you have left over makes a pretty good quiche.

Huge Myth dear Inky and I'm sure you know this to be true. Every man I've ever known eats Quiche and LOVES it. Laughing Laughing

This is definitely a recipe I'll try. Thanks again, Inky...you are a wonderful cook and...I just plain like you. Very Happy Very Happy

Inky, what kind of cheese do you use? I usually make the Quiche Lorraine with swiss, bacon and onion in a pie crust, but would like to try this one as it looks SO easy.

You can use any kind of cheese you like, Fendi. I tend to use cheddar, when I'm doing sausage, red pepper, and mushroom, but I would use Swiss, if I were doing ham or bacon with onion. Feel free to play around with this. It really is an easy . . . and forgiving . . . recipe.

And, yes, Frannie! All of the men I know like quiche . . . and I think they're all pretty normal. Very Happy

Ham is also really good in Quiche. My mother made two for Christmas morning Itialian version with Italian cold meats inside. It is really yummy even the kids liked it (the one with the ham of course). I have never made it without a pastry crust, I think I will give this a try Very Happy
