This Low Carb Quick Quiche recipe is a favorite meal at our house. I've been making Quick Quiche for years. But it wasn't until recently I realized that I could make it low carb. I adapted it from an old baking mix recipe i found on the side of a box. It was so easy to adapt this recipe to low carb that I'm surprised I didn't do it sooner.
As you can see by the photo below this recipe is easy to double and perfect for surprise guests. I also freezes and warms up in the microwave well.
I'm always looking for a way to use eggs in lunch or dinner menus and this one is at the top of my list. Thanks to the addition of cheese and ham this recipe packs a punch of protein at 18.4 grams a serving and is thrifty in the carb department at just 3.7 grams. Net carbs are a crazy low 2.7.
