A healthy twist on classic quiche
Adding in fresh greens and asparagus to any dish allows us to get a full serving of vegetables in our first meal. Nothing says spring like sautéed asparagus! Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
- Large Brown Eggs
- Baby spinach
- Aged white cheddar cheese or any cheddar that you prefer
- Milk or half and half
How to make Keto Crustless Asparagus and Bacon Quiche:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. We’ll start by sautéing the bacon in a cast iron skillet (10-11 inches) or oven proof skillet. Cook until desired crispiness and set aside. Reserve 1 tbsp of the rendered bacon fat and toss in diced asparagus to the hot skillet. Cook until the asparagus is softened, about 4-5 minutes. While the asparagus is cooking, chop up the greens and grate the white cheddar.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs with milk.
Add half of the cheese, the chopped greens, most of the bacon (reserve 1/4 cup for the topping) to the egg bowl and stir. Pour the egg mixture into the skillet. Transfer the skillet to the oven.
Bake for 18 minutes, remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle the cheese and remaining bacon on top. Bake for another 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is nice and melty. Remove from the oven. Let sit for 5 minutes before slicing and serving.
You can easily substitute different veggies and protein in this recipe. I love the addition of bell pepper or tomatoes, or using whatever vegetables are in season. Sausage or ham works perfectly here, and feel free to swap out the cheese. Gruyere or Swiss are delicious options!
You can also use a pie plate in place of a cast iron skillet. A smaller pie plan will require an extra 8-10 minutes of cook time.
Storing and re-heating:
You can store this quiche in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Slice up and store or keep it in the pan and cover with foil. To reheat, I suggest keeping the foil on top and reheating in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes. You can also freeze individual slices for up to 3 months.

You may not believe this but we don’t own a cast iron skillet!! We’d like to try the bacon asparagus quiche but need an alternative to the skillet. Any suggestions?
Pat and Mike
Time to get a cast iron!! Haha, no worries. You can easily still make this. Sauté the bacon and asparagus as directed above, then transfer to a round pie glass dish, or a square casserole dish. Make the egg mixture, and proceed with same cooking times. Hope you love it!
