This crustless spinach quiche is PERFECT if you're needing some low carb breakfast recipes that will satisfy everyone. If you don't think this is German, then read on ... You might think that quiche is a classic French dish. Actually it originated in the Franconian region of Germany (near the French border). It was called Küeche (Kuchen is German for "cake") and that became Quiche in French.
This crustless quiche recipe makes 6 servings, each having about 2.5 carbs. Not bad for a filling breakfast or brunch. (Low calorie, it is NOT!)
I love using a fancy 9-inch ovenware dish for serving this wonderful spinach cheese quiche, especially when I have guests over.
It's such an easy dish to prepare and pop in the oven, giving me time to do other things, such as chatting together over a cup of coffee.
I love having recipes in my files that satisfy the different needs of my family and/or guests. Low carb recipes are always good to have available. I suppose you could decrease the cream to a 5% and the cheese to a low-fat one to decrease the calorie count. Haven't tried that yet, but calories aren't an issue with low-carbers.
If you're doing a low-carb 'diet', leftovers of this dish make great quick breakfasts to have available. Either eat cold or reheat in the microwave. Makes that 'getting up and out of the house' quick and easy.
