Quiche is a dish that never seems to go out of style. It is a savory meal that can include ingredients like cream, milk or eggs, along with other items for texture and flavor. Many versions have a pastry crust, but crustless alternatives exist too.
It’s easy to see why quiche is so popular. The dish is incredibly versatile. It can be eaten hot or cold. You’ll sometimes see it as part of a full dinner, as an item in a packed lunch, as breakfast or as food for a party.
There are countless potential ingredients, creating a wide range of flavor variations. Some quiches look very similar to one another, while others are completely different.
Quiches are also very good for keto. They already contain many healthy fats, so any keto adaptations don’t need to be complex. The keto quiche recipes in this list are all great examples for you to try out. They can also act as inspiration for your own recipes.

Ham, Cheese And Asparagus Quiche With A Cauliflower Crust
There are plenty of different keto pastry approaches, which each have their own unique impact on the finished dish. The recipe from sparklelivingblog.com relies on a cauliflower crust. Cauliflower is a common choice on keto, but if you're new to the diet, the idea mightn't sound appealing.

Keto Sausage Crusted Quiche
Mellissa from ibreatheimhungry.com offers this simple quiche that you can try out. The most interesting part is the crust. The recipe has a sausage-based crust, which is very simple to make. Honestly, this aspect is so cool. There are plenty of pastry-style crusts out there, but those aren’t always popular. Some people find that such crusts fall short of carb-based options. So, why not try a meat crust instead?
While the recipe is for a full quiche, you could easily make it in muffin tins instead. This would give you smaller quiches that are easily portable.

Keto Quiche With A Cauliflower Crust
Vanessa from thecheerfulkitchen.com offers this quiche, which relies on cauliflower to create the crust. The style isn’t as odd as it sounds.

Prosciutto, Cheese And Zucchini Quiche
Speaking of zucchinis, here is another recipe that features the vegetable. This one comes from queenketo.com. It includes prosciutto and cheese as well, which help to create a more complex balance of flavors. Antya also mentions that you might call this recipe a savory cake.

Keto Breakfast Quiche
Here’s another breakfast-style quiche. This one comes from Meagan at azestybite.com. It features bacon and spinach as the main ingredients, along with the traditional quiche components.

You can also make it in a deeper pan, as long as you adjust the cook times appropriately.

This quiche comes from eatbeautiful.net and it looks a little different than most. You end up with a crusty top and a bright green interior to the quiche.
