Quiche might very well be the most underrated breakfast out there. It's fluffy, filling, and has that feeling of dining in a quaint French bakery. More quiche, s'il vous plaît?
There's no need, however, to limit the classic quiche to just a morning munch. Quiche makes an amazing lunch, dinner, and afternoon snack, too. Plus, our cracker-crust quiche has all the makings for a well-rounded keto meal: high in good fats, low in carbs, and packed with meats and veggies to fuel your body from dawn to dusk.
So, whether you’re looking for a quick, crowd-pleasing recipe, or just need to use up what’s in the fridge... it’s quiche time, baby!

Fillings of choice. Try mixing in pre-cooked meats like sausage or bacon or sautéed veggies like mushrooms and bell peppers. Or top with fresh spinach and a layer with cheese! Gruyere is great for quiches (and your carb-count).
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Use a rolling pin to smush the crackers to fine crumbs. Tip: Put them in a plastic bag to prevent crumb explosions!
Mix together the cracker crumbs, 1 egg, and ¼ cup melted butter.
Press the mixture into the base of a 9-inch pie plate and spread it evenly on the base and around the sides. Use a fork to prick holes across the bottom.
Bake the base for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Now time for some filling fun! Use a mixer or whisk to combine the 5 eggs, ½ cup heavy cream, ¾ cup milk-of-choice, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Combine well until frothy.
Stir in your fillings of-choice.
Spread the filling on the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the quiche stops jiggling when moved.
Allow to cool for about 20 minutes to room temperature. Serve warm, cold, or room temp.
