  • Back pepper

Easy Low Carb Quiche Lorraine – Keto

Have you ever wondered how quiche Lorraine got its name?

I must admit that for the longest time I thought Quiche Lorraine was named after some genius little lady who whipped up a great meal for her family back in the 1950s.

But I was wrong. Quiche Lorraine got its name after the Lorraine region in France. The first Quiche Lorraine was an open pie that featured a filling of eggs, cream, and smoked bacon.

In the original recipe the crust was made with bread dough, today it’s usually made with a shortcrust or puff pastry.

Quiche first became popular in England shortly after WWII, and then later in the 1950s in the USA. Today, there are many variations on this classic French dish including low carb crustless quiche.

However, this girl would consider a crustless quiche more of a frittata and not necessarily a quiche.

Keto Quiche Crust

I decided to make the crust for this easy quiche out of coconut flour. I am quite partial to the texture coconut flour provides in a keto crust. 

However, If you prefer you can also use my keto pie crust that uses almond flour

This gluten-free crust makes the ideal pair for the creamy, tasty filling.

In fact, I have a few keto pies on our site that employ my coconut crust. Like my Keto Apple Pie, and my Keto Fudge Pie.

I also made my crust for this keto quiche with coconut flour so that individuals that have nut allergies could also enjoy this quiche Lorraine.

Additionally, using coconut flour instead of a nut flour means that this easy keto quiche has the added benefit of being even lower in carbs. Win! Win! Win!

  1. Could I add a little milk to the eggs instead of the water?

    I think the crust has a good texture, although I’m not in love with the coconut flavor. It would probably be better with a sweet pie though. I did need to leave this in the oven for at least 10 extra minutes, to be fully cooked (I used a glass pie pan, could be related?) However, when I was baking just the crust I took it out a little early because it was burning at the edges, so then I put a aluminum foil shield on when I put the eggs in. Also, when I was rolling the crust out I switched to wax paper, the parchment was sticking way too much for me and I couldn’t get it to release into the pan. Overall, quite happy with the recipe, I especially like how well the quiche cuts and the pieces lift out neatly.

     
  3. Hi – I am so excited to try this recipe. I’m wondering if I can leave out the sweetener? They always have a bad effect on me. Thanks so much!

     
    • Sure Denise. Feel free to leave the sweetener out.

       
    • I left out the sweetener and it tasted great. The crust was perfect. The filling was awesome. Tasted great and I really got my “carb” fix from this quiche. As always when using coconut flour, the quiche crust was extremely filling and slightly on the dry side. However, I realize that somethings always got to give when substituting carbs. Will definitely use this recipe again (the crust especially). Thank you for sharing this great recipe.

       
  4. Can I sub almond flour for coconut flour? Would it be the same amount?

     
  5. I want to try to make this keto quiche Lorraine but I must ask: how much onion is called for? I’m guessing, that since it’s not specified, the onion should not be sweated or caramelized? In your recipe above, Keto Quiche Filling lists everything but the onions, unless I’m mistaken.
