I had my first quiche when I was 17. I had taken the mom of the guy I was dating out for an afternoon of shopping and lunch at the local mall. I can’t remember exactly why but I imagine it had something to do with her being one of the warmest, most nurturing women I’d ever met.

We stopped for lunch and I remember having to ask her what a quiche was. I was hesitant because I am not a huge egg fan, never have been, but she encouraged me to give it a try. I was so glad I did — I loved it. Tender, custardy egg with bits of diced ham and cheese came together to create magic -creamy, rich, delicious magic.

This easy low-carb quiche microwaves really well. I say this because I find that, while the food I make lovingly for my family takes hours of preparation at times, I am likely to want quick, grab and go food for myself. This quiche literally is ready to eat in less than three minutes. Three. You can make it while your coffee is dripping into your cup or your tea is steeping.

Being able to make a low-carb quiche like this means that I will actually eat something decent instead of opting for coffee and a promise to myself to do better next time.

Aren’t these pie pans adorable? When I saw them I knew that I had to have them. They are ceramic and work in oven or microwave – perfect for my individual low-carb quiche and other recipes! I found a similar Ceramic Oval Baker Set on Amazon. That’s an affiliate link, by the way. If you click through and buy an item I get a small commission which helps to support the blog. I really appreciate it!

You really can use anything you like in this quiche. A little cooked ground beef with chiles and cheddar, crumbled bacon and Swiss – anything. You won’t miss the crust at all.

If you want to bake this low-carb breakfast quiche in a regular or toaster over bake it at 375F for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until it is just set.
