Is it just me or is breakfast the hardest part of the day when you’re following a low carb or keto lifestyle?

I mean, bacon and eggs are the obvious answer, but after a couple of weeks you just get BORED!

I still eat all the bacon and eggs, but I’ve learned to mix it up a bit. Instead of scrambled eggs, we do chaffles or my breakfast casserole with ham or we make this keto broccoli quiche!

Yes, broccoli – for breakfast! Y’all know how I love my broccoli! 😉

We love this quiche because it’s just as simple as scrambling eggs but it’s just something a little different!

We like to make this for brunch alongside some fresh berries and a green salad. Delicious!

Ingredient Notes:

ingredients for keto broccoli quiche.

Broccoli – You’ll want to use fresh broccoli florets that have been chopped into small pieces. The larger chunks will not cook at the same rate as the eggs so make sure they are well chopped.

Eggs As with any good quiche recipe you’ll need lots of eggs! Eight large ones, to be exact. They’ll get baked up with the heavy cream, broccoli and cheese to make this crustless keto broccoli quiche.

Cheese – You’ll add plenty of shredded cheddar cheese to the broccoli quiche which will get mixed up with the eggs and baked until it is perfectly golden brown! You could also use swiss, Monterey jack, or gruyere cheese!

Seasoning – Just some basics – salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder!

Why We Love This Recipe:
  • All that egg and cheese make this dish so perfectly filling!
  • No crust means this quiche is super easy and keto friendly!
  • It really couldn’t be any easier to make, just some quick mixing and 30 minutes in the oven.

How To:

  • Eggs – You’ll start this Keto broccoli quiche recipe off by whisking together the eggs and the heavy cream! It really is a very simple recipe, just a little mixing and it bakes up in no time. The eggs and heavy cream are what make this a quiche recipe despite being crustless. The eggs bake up perfectly with the cheese and broccoli and makes for a perfectly filling dish!

 

  • Mix – Once you’ve combined the eggs and cream you can add in all of the remaining ingredients including the shredded cheese and the seasonings! Mix them together well and then you can pour the broccoli quiche mixture into a greased 9-inch pie plate.

  • Bake – All that’s left to do is add the pie plate to the oven and start baking the Keto broccoli quiche! It’ll take about 30 minutes for the top of the crustless quiche to bake into a golden brown color around the edges and for the center to set. Let it cool for ten minutes after baking so that the cheese and egg can further set before slicing and serving!
Helpful Tip!

We love the texture of the brococli when you start with chopped fresh broccoli, but if you’d like it to be super tender and soft, go ahead and steam it first before adding to the quiche.

FAQ’s:

What is quiche?

A quiche is generally made with a crust, and it contains an egg custard mixed with a variety of other ingredients like broccoli, cheese, meat, and other vegetables. In this case we’re making a crustless quiche!

Is this a quiche or a frittata?

Technically a frittata is a crustless quiche, but a frittata doesn’t usually contain heavy cream and it’s generally prepared in a skillet while a quiche is baked. So we’re just going to call this a crustless Keto broccoli quiche!

Can you freeze quiche?

Yes! You can prepare it ahead of time and freeze it before baking, or you can freeze leftovers after baking. It should last about 2 to 3 months if well sealed.

Can I use frozen broccoli?

I’ve only tried this quiche recipe with fresh broccoli but I am pretty sure that this would turn out just fine with frozen broccoli. You’d likely need to thaw it first.
