Breakfast Quiche

Breakfast Quiche

Generally I like to cook all of my wife and I’s food for the week on the weekend. Having food ready and accessible makes it much easier to stick with a diet.  When breakfast and lunches are premade, you just grab it and go, no trying to decide what to make in the morning or feeling lazy and having to fall back to a fast food hack.  So, in comes the breakfast quiche.  You can put anything you want into it; its basically just baked eggs.

Slice of QuicheHere is the finished result, lets get started!

Cook BaconThe first step is to cook the bacon.  This serves two purposes.  First, it cooks the bacon :)  Second, it provides great cooking grease for the rest of the process.

Cooked BaconI like my bacon pretty crisp, and it will soften during the cooking anyway.Draining the excess bacon fatDrain the excess fat.  I use this special grease keeper that I got from Amazon a few weeks ago. It has a filter on top to catch the random stuff. I only put pure bacon grease in it and you can add it to anything you are cooking. It has a nice flavor and its free!

Bacon StoreHere is a couple weeks of accumulation, its about 1/3 full already!

Cook the veggiesFry the vegetables in the left over bacon fat.  I used frozen broccoli and frozen spinach this week.

Pan lined with vegetablesLine the bottom of your pan with vegetables.  No need to grease it because of all of the bacon fat :)  Note that I used a huge pan because I was making it for 2 people for 5 days so this is for ten servings. You can use a standard 9×13 as well.

Wet ingredientsAdd the eggs, cream and spices together.  I used garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Whisk the ingredients togetherWhisk it all together!  Try to mix it up pretty well because you want fluffy eggs.  Notice the bubbles in the mixture.

Ready for ovenPour the egg mixture over the vegetables.  Then crumble bacon over the mixture.  Add cheese and push in grape tomatoes.  Finally, push it all down and in.  Tomatoes are pretty high carb but this is a vegetable packed breakfast. You can of course not use them or include different vegetables.

Finished Quiche!Here is the final product!

All this weeks breakfast and lunchAnd here is a picture of the entire week ready to go in terms of breakfast and dinner.  Happy cooking ketards!

Tovolo 7.5 Quart Mixing Bowl
Most of my large 5day recipes and casseroles are all mixed together before being baked. You really need a giant bowl to hold all the ingredients and this one fits the bill!
Lodge 12-inch Cast Iron Skillet
The only pan you really need. Once properly seasoned, this pan can cook anything you can imagine! Lasts forever and never wears out.
4.8 Quart Casserole Dish
Great for cooking those gigantic, week long casseroles! I call them 5day meals on the website. Normal casserole dishes are 10×13 but this one is gigantic and can easily be divided into ten portions.

  1. Great idea making for the week – really need to get into that! I know cooked eggs do last all week, but somewhere in my mind I always worry they won’t – no idea why! Still going to try this recipe out – and might boil up a few hard boiled just to have in the fridge too.

  2. That quiche looks dam tasty! the photo of your fridge is also pretty impressive, would be great having all your food ready for the week!

  3. Was wondering how long it last as far as expiration date? I have trouble gauging that so maybe if you gave me a basic idea on how to judge that would also be very very helpful. I’d definitely make for an entire 7 days if I knew I could. Thanks in advance

    • I made it for 6 days and it did pretty well in the refrigerator for that time period. I think it should be fine for a week.

  4. Thanks Mr. Caveman, I think I nailed it! http://i.imgur.com/GXcBI.jpg
    The picture doesn’t look nearly as perfect and tasty as it does in real life.

  5. Just made this and tested it. So amazing.

  6. As someone entirely new to keto (day 3), this meal is perfect. I made it last night and packed servings in individual containers. Tastes great and it’s satiating.
