Before preparing recipe read notes at the bottom of the page.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Baking time: 38 minutes
Servings: 4 minis or 6-8 people in full size Quiche.
1 Cup, Blanched Almond Flour
3 Tbls. Oat Fiber*
1/4 – 1/2 tsp. Salt ( I used 1/2 tsp)
2 Tbls. Bacon Grease, Cold
2 Tbls. Butter, Salted, Cold and Cubed
1.) Preheat oven to 425•
2.) In a large bowl mix the first 3 ingredients together until well combined.
3.) Add in the butter and bacon grease. Mix together with your hands, until a dough forms.
4.) Cut into four even sized pieces.
5.) Press into mini pie plates. Crust only goes up 1/2 way.
6.) Bake for 8 minutes.
7.) Remove from oven. Set aside and prepare sausage and fillings.
3 Large, eggs
1/2 Cup, Heavy Whipping Cream
1/2 Cup, Water
1/4 tsp. Herbs de Provence
1/4 tsp. Dried, Dill Weed
1/4 tsp. Dried, Basil
4 Cranks Fresh Ground Pepper
Mix together in a large pyrex measuring cup, using a fork or whisk to fluff it together.
Ingredients to layer in Crust(in this order)
1/4 Cup + 1 Tbls., Feta Cheese
1 Cup, Hot Breakfast Sausage, cooked (prepared ahead, or while pie crust is having first bake.)
1/2 Cup, Fresh Spinach, rough chopped
1-1/4 Cups, Sharp Cheddar, grated
1.) Layer into each pie plate. In this order Feta, Sausage, Spinach, Sharp Cheddar.
2.) Re-whisk egg mixture and pour even amounts into each pie plate.
3.) Place quiches on a cookie sheet and bake at 425• for 10 minutes. Continue cooking in the oven, and turn down heat to 375•, and bake for an additional 20 minutes.
4.) They will be really puffy when you pull them out, but they will deflate a little bit. They continue cooking a little while they’re cooling. In my oven these times worked exactly.
*Oat fiber was the Lifesource brand. From Amazon. This is the only brand I can recommend. Please note that Oat Fiber is different than Oat Flour. Oat Fiber contains NO Carbs. (I’m not sure what you could substitute that will give it the same texture.)
To make into a full sized quiche. Please note that the crust just covers the bottom and about 1/4 inch up the sides. Use 2 Cups Sausage, Use 2 Cups Cheddar and 1/2 Cup Feta. All the other amounts stay the same and cooking time is the same.
You can serve quiche for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
You can make ahead, and rewarm to serve.
It is super versatile to change to what you have on hand. Different cheeses, veggies and meats can be changed up. Doesn’t work well with just straight Sharp Cheddar as it’s too oily.
