Low Carb Breakfast Spinach Quiche


Quiche3

 

Need something other than bacon and eggs for breakfast? Try this delicious Spinach Quiche. I’m not a fan of a protein on protein breakfast and frankly thinks it’s a bit unhealthy. Breakfast like any other meal should be a balanced meal with good carbs, protein and fats.

This Quiche fits the bill completely! start your day with some gorgeous leafy greens, it’s deliciously filling.

If don’t like spinach don’t let it stop you, as long as you stick to the custard base you can add any veggies that you fancy to your Quiche. See the tips below for more ideas!

Each portion contains 7 g Net Carbs per portion (4) 

 

Tips

_________________________________________________________________

Mix everything in a bowl and fill a mini muffin pan with a spoon full of the mixture to bake bite sized quiches for your next party.

Meatballs and spinach tarts
Mini Quiche’s is perfect for low carb finger food at your next party, barbeque or picnic!

Bake it in a brownie pan and cut into bars for a lunch box treat, they taste just as nice when eaten cold.

Great combinations:

Instead of spinach add a diced red, yellow and green pepper to the custard. Make sure you fry it with your bacon to avoid a soggy Quiche.

Go meatless.

Left over veggies? add it to your Quiche.

Replace the bacon with cooked chicken.

Add Feta cheese.
