A low Carb, Gluten free Low Sugar Crustless Bacon quiche made with Greek yogurt and fresh greens. Full of flavor and nutrition!
Just now my refrigerator is stuffed with tiny chicken eggs intermixed with some larger eggs from our old hens. Our 7 month old hens, nine of them, have kicked into high production.
Crustless Bacon Quiche makes an attractive, tasty, high protein meal. And it uses a lot of eggs. Win win!
This easy meal is a lovely garden to table recipe. Make it for brunch or a light dinner. Any greens you are growing in your garden; or find in your culinary travels, will work. if you do use kale or Swiss chard, remember to take the leafy greens off the kale ribs. The ribs are tasty, but very fibrous. The quiche texture is best with only the tender leafy part.
Crustless Bacon Quiche Recipe:
This quiche recipe uses Greek Yogurt and 2 percent milk instead of cream to reduce unnecessary fat and keep the protein high. Also the carbs are way down due to the absence of a crust.
Bacon is the only really high fat ingredient. We consider it necessary. If you don’t want the bacon, replace it with a leaner meat like low fat ham. We found bacon without the unhealthy additives! Happy days. Bacon is on our ‘favorite ingredient’ list once again!
This recipe couldn’t be easier. No crust means simple quiche!
- Just sauté, blend and mix.
- Pour it in a pie plate and bake until done.
- Cool it a bit and serve.
Delicious low carb gluten free bliss! You can choose to use whatever fresh greens you have in this Quiche. Spinach, Swiss Chard or kale! If you use frozen just be sure the greens are defrosted and drained well. You can also play with other vegetables. I used what I had on hand in my kitchen and garden. Fresh Swiss chard, kale and spinach are all wonderful in this quiche.
