Southwestern Quiche Ingredients
For this recipe, you will need specific ingredients for both the crust and the filling. Here is what you will need!
For the crust:
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1-.25 ounce package of unflavored gelatin
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
- vegetable shortening to grease pan
For the filling:
- 4 strips of crispy bacon, chopped
- 8 ounces of breakfast sausage, sauteed
- 1 1/2 cups of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
- 4 ounces of jalapeno jack cheese, grated
- 8 eggs, beaten
How to Make Southwestern Quiche
Start your sausage and bacon frying while you prepare the crust. Remember to periodically check their progress while you are working on the crust.
Stir the gelatin into the almond flour in a mixing bowl. Add the softened cream cheese and beat with a stiff spatula briefly and then add the two beaten eggs. Mix everything together to form a loose dough.
Grease a 9 inch diameter deep dish pie pan or a quiche pan liberally with vegetable shortening. Pour in the dough and work it with greasy fingers evenly over the bottom and up the sides as far as you can go. Take a fork and poke holes in the bottom and bake the crust for 12 minutes at 400 F.
While the crust is cooking, prepare the filling. Chop your crispy bacon, make sure your cooked sausage is crumbled, grate your jalapeno jack, and beat your eggs, separately, in a large mixing bowl.
Add your well drained spinach to the eggs, followed by the bacon and sausage. Stir the mixture between additions.
Finally, add your cheese and pour the mixture into the quiche crust.
Bake at 350 F for 45 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 180 F. Serve warm with a spoonful of your favorite salsa.
This is a delicious and tasty recipe and the low carb crust makes it even more desirable!
