    @mentat I cheat! I make the egg/cream/cheese part but no crust...I just use my ancient Joy of Cooking recipe as a general guide.

    The photo shows a quiche with a pastry shell, but the recipe doesn’t mention that.
    Quiche with salad used to be a favourite weekend meal.
    One of the best quiches I ever had was in a cafe restaurant with chunks of salmon and largish pieces of broccoli- in a deep quiche pan, absolutely delicious.

    I think that any quiche can be made low carb, just by using a low carb pastry option (for example lo dough, or an almond pastry crust). Alternatively line the quiche dish with greaseproof paper, or ham, or bacon, press the meat edges togehter to seal, then fill and cook as normal.

    Since the purpose of the pastry is to protect the edges of the egg from overcooking, it can be cooked slightly more gently (lower heat) if there is no rim - or use a bain marie.

    Love a good quiche.
    I tend to replace any milk in the recipe with double cream, to cut the carbs a little further, too.

    It really takes a different view to change from using low fat milk for the quiche custard (to lower fat intake) to using double cream ‘to cut the carbs.’ Sometimes I feel I should take my head off and refit it. Completely different thinking.
