Quiche has its roots in France, but some think it may have originated in its close neighbor, Germany. It started being mentioned in texts around the 13th century. Regardless of where it originated, it makes perfect sense why I’ve always loved quiche. With ancestry related to Germany, France and England/Scotland, it’s pretty likely that many of my ancestors enjoyed this tasty egg dish. Quiche is naturally almost keto friendly…the only problematic ingredient is the crust.
Fortunately, it’s fairly easy to make a delicious keto crust from almond flour, or you can simply make a quiche keto by making a crustless quiche. You can take any meat and eggs quiche recipe and bake it in the pie plate without a crust. This sausage keto quiche florentine is no exception. While I love it with this buttery, almond flour crust, you can just as easily make it into a keto crustless quiche.
