  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Mix all ingredients to the pie crust in a food processor into a firm dough.
  2. Spread out the dough with well-oiled hands or a spatula in a springform. Place parchment paper between the ring and the bottom to make it easier to losen the baked pie.
  3. Let sit in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  4. Chop the onion finely and dice the bacon. Fry in butter until onion and bacon has turned a nice color. Add spices and stir. Add to the pie crust.
  5. Whisk together remaining ingredients and pour on top.
  6. Bake on middle rack for 45 minutes or until the pie has turned a nice color. Probe with a knife to make sure the egg mixture is solid if you are unsure.

Tip!

Pie is a perfect bring-to-work lunch, perhaps with a delicious green salad.

    8" or 9" unless you make fewer or more servings.

    Delicious! I am a Quiche lover and this one tastes great! I added 1/4 tsp nutmeg as in my old recipe and I loved it!
    I can't believe is Keto

    This looks really good.
    BTW, for those complaining about US measurements and the whole 1/6 oz (the ounce thing can get ridiculous) 1/6 oz = 1 teaspoon (approximately)

    One of my all-time favourite recipes, I am obsessed!

    Loved it, first time I have ever made quiche. Only 35g almond flour in the cupboard so I balanced with 40g coconut flour and 2 tsp heavy cream to other ingredients for the crust and patted it into springform pan, papered and sprayed with olive oil. I can't eat onions (IBS) so I diced bacon and spring onion tops together without cooking. I have a slow gas oven in the motorhome so I cooked the quiche for an hour. Definitely keeping this one; it was just as good for breakfast. A half-serve is enough for me. Thank you Diet Doctor and friends!

    The timing on the recipe needs to be updates. The prep time is way more than 10 minutes. This recipe took me an hour before I put it in the oven. Between chopping, dicing, frying, whisking, kneading, etc... it took an hour. Unless you a professional chief and have all your ingredients ready for mix, 10 minutes is impossible!

    Thank you for your feedback, I will pass it on to the Recipes team.

    Agree with the comment about NOT using mls for dry ingredients!!! This subject has been discussed before; PLEASE use grams for dry ingredients & mls for volume. That way recipes will ve accurate...

    Could you freeze this at any point? Ideally I'd like to have frozen cases ready to take out the freezer, fill and bake but am unsure if the dough would withstand being frozen, and if I should blind bake and then freeze, or just freeze if I'm going to try it.

    You could freeze this after baking.

    Add 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper, oh my goodness, takes it to the next level.

    Just wanted to let you know - your metric measurements are off - you have 300ml and (150g) of almond flour in the recipe - mls and grams are equal units just mls is used for liquids and grams is for solids or powders - so assume this should be 300g of almond flour?

    Grams are weight and ml are volume, so they aren't always 1:1 conversion. For example, 100ml of bricks is going to weigh a lot more than 100ml of feathers.
  17. Carol Kosy
    Ummm....doesn't matter if its bricks or feathers 100ml is the same (just a tiny amount of brick and a humungous amount of feathers to = 100ml).
  18. Carol Kosy
    Aha.....OK (bricks and feathers weren't a great example) BUT I've measured 300ml of almond flour in a measuring jug and THEN tipped it onto my scales and it DOES indeed weigh roughly 150 grams (nearer 140 gm to be exact). So NOW I get it....you Americans and your different way of measuring LOL ;) )

    Is this really 889cal per serve?

    Yes, our nutrition information is listed per serving. 886 calories per serving. Here's why we don't recommend counting calories.

    Usually the crust is baked ahead and then filled. Am I correct that this crust is NOT pre-baked?

    You are correct. The crust hangs out in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
