CAN I SKIP THE MEAT IN THIS QUICHE?
I used sausage and bacon, I love the combination of the two types of meat combined. You are more than welcome to change up the meats to fit your tastebuds or skip it all together.
Canadian bacon, diced ham both would be great contenders for this spinach quiche. But you can eliminate the meats and go veggie all the way. Try adding mushrooms and onions! I have other keto quiche recipes to check out if you are keto these recipes can be made by skipping the crust.
FRESH OR FROZEN SPINACH
Frozen chopped spinach works incredibly well in this recipe. Make sure to thaw your spinach and allow it to fully drain. I set mine in a colander so as it thaws the water can runoff. Then I gently squeeze the spinach to push out any excess water that might still be in the leaves.
If you don’t thaw and drain, the frozen can add too much liquid to the quiche and it won’t bake up properly. This is a step you can’t skip.

- For the crust:
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1-.25 ounce package of unflavored gelatin
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 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
- 1 small red pepper, diced
- Salsa for garnish (optional)
- Start your sausage and bacon frying while you prepare the crust. Remember to periodically check their progress while you are working on the crust.
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.
