Serve with fresh sliced tomatoes and leafy greens.

Store-bought, fully cooked bacon can also be used for this recipe.

You could also make this recipe as individual quiches or as egg muffins in a greased muffin tin. Make sure to reduce the time in the oven to about 10-15 minutes depending on size.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.

    I’ve tried to make a crustless quiche twice & it’s always ended up a load of slop. Decided to give this a go last night for our lunch today. Turned out perfect, I used mushrooms in place of broccoli also added some leftover cooked chicken. So happy I finally made one that worked as it’s such a versatile recipe.
