How To Make A Keto Quiche
Making the best keto quiche is pretty straightforward and the crust doesn’t even have to be rolled. It’s one you just press into the pie pan allow to chill for a minimum of 15 minutes.
I recommend you do the crust first and then proceed to make the Lorraine quiche filling. You’ll need to cook your bacon to crisp then saute your onions, garlic in the rendered bacon fat.
Once your onion and garlic are translucent, you’ll saute your mushrooms. Then it’s just a matter of mixing the egg custard and cheese filling and adding the parsley, bacon, onion, mushrooms, and seasonings.
The following are the ingredients you’ll need, please note that the full printable recipe card is at the bottom of the page:

- Coconut flour
- Whole large eggs
- Swiss cheese thinly sliced or grated

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.
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 nut flour means that this easy keto quiche has the added benefit of being even lower in carbs. Win! Win! Win!
