A low carb ham and broccoli quiche with cheese. The gluten free crust is made with a blend of almond and coconut flours. Can be made with or without crust.
I usually make my quiche without a crust to save on carbs. But this time I decided to try it with an almond and coconut flour based crust.
It did give the pie a nice crisp edge at the bottom as well as an added nutty flavor. However, the crust can be omitted if you’d rather not have the extra carbs.
I wanted to make a simple low carb quiche for dinner. I ended up with a ham and broccoli quiche. The vegetable adds a nice color and ups the nutrition.
This dish is similar to my crustless spinach cheese pie. And, it’s another great low carb recipe to make ahead and heat up for a quick meal on those busy mornings
I also added a little mozzarella cheese on top of this ham and broccoli quiche to give it a nice brown color. Parmesan cheese would be another option if you don’t have any mozzarella. Or, you can simply omit the cheese topping.
Cheddar is the classic cheese with ham. But, you can certainly change that up if you wish so feel free to modify the recipe to your liking
I often buy different specialty cheeses at our local Aldi store. They offer many gourmet cheese varieties at prices that are hard to beat!
Low carb quiche is a popular dish with those who follow a keto diet. This ham and broccoli quiche will not disappoint.
There’s plenty of room to customize this quiche with add-ins like mushrooms and onions. However, I preferred keeping the dish simple.
If you have some ham leftover from dinner, this low carb quiche is a terrific way to use up leftovers the next morning. Other ideas for using up ham include my Cheesy Cauliflower Ham Casserole, Crock Pot Ham and “Potatoes”, and Spinach Cauliflower Rice Ham Casserole recipes.
