Keto Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

Ahhh…the weekend…

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

Do you slow down on the weekends?

I do, every chance I get.

And whether you get to do it every week, or just every once in a while, it’s always a treat.

There’s just nothing better than a leisurely breakfast or brunch on a weekend morning to get me ready for the coming week.

This past weekend I was coming off a crazy hectic week. You know the ones.

Something goes haywire at the office.

You have to be someplace, or sometimes several places, every night of the week.

The washing machine leaked all over the floor.

And so did the dog.

Right after she ate your favorite pair of shoes…always the right shoe…what’s that about?

And you may or may not have lost your phone.

Again.

Some days you just need a moment, ya know?

And I decided I needed some R&R. And you need to decide that for yourself. Cuz nobody’s gonna just give it to you.

I got me a bunch of flowers on the way home late Friday night.

And you should totally do that for yourself, too! It just perks the whole room up.

Unless you’re a guy. Then get them for someone else.

Anyway, I choose this pretty fabulous Keto Broccoli Cheddar Quiche to make for brunch on Saturday.

I decided on brunch so I could sleep in…lol

Since it doesn’t have a crust it’s perfect for a keto or low carb diet.

And what can I say about broccoli & cheddar?

Only that it’s a match-made-in-heaven kinda paring!

It’a also one of those put-it-together-the-night-before-if-you-feel-so-inclined breakfasts. Gotta love that!

I’ve gotta be honest with y’all. I was not so inclined this weekend.

But even if you don’t get it ready the night before, it’s a pretty fast and easy dish to put together.

It’s perfect paired with a simple salad for brunch. With homemade Keto Ranch Dressing, of course!

You can use fresh broccoli or leftover cooked broccoli if you have it, so it’s also a great meal prep recipe.

And while it’s awesome fresh out of the oven, it reheats well, and it’s even good cold. So it’s perfect as a make ahead recipe as well.

A two-fer. Who knew?

But enough chit chat.

Grab your apron and let’s get started!

Keto No-Crust Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

Keto No-Crust Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

  • Coconut oil spray
  • 2 cups chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 5 large eggs
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F.

Now prepare your baking dish by spraying it with the coconut oil spray.

Spread the chopped broccoli evenly in the bottom of the dish.

Then sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese evenly over the broccoli.

Now you’re going to make the custard. So crack the eggs into a medium mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

Add the heavy cream, the salt and pepper, and the nutmeg and whisk again.

And finally, pour the egg mixture over the broccoli and cheese in the baking dish.

Bake the quiche for 35 to 40 minutes. The center should be set. Check that by inserting a toothpick in the center. If it comes out clean, you should be good to go.

Let cool slightly before serving.

If you want to add ham or bacon or maybe even some mushrooms, or a mixture of all of the above, add 1 cup and decrease the broccoli to 1 cup.

So there you have it. Keto quiche, a little salad, and a brunch beverage of your choice. Low carb, of course.

*sniff* I miss mimosas *sniff*

And enjoy the peace and quiet.

Since you may or may not have “lost” your phone…

Peace, love, and phone free brunch!
