SCD Crustless Quiche

This an easy meal to prepare if you are short on time. It is a great "clean out the refrigerator" meal too as it easily adapts to whatever vegetables, meat and cheese you have on hand.

Basic Quiche:

5 eggs
1/2 c. SCD whipping cream, unwhipped
salt and pepper
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

Filling Ingredients, see Variations:
1/2 c. finely chopped ham
1/3 c. shredded Havarti Cheese
2 T. fresh chives, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Oil an 8 or 9 inch pie pan. Evenly layer filling ingredients into the oiled pan, ending with the cheese. Whip together eggs, cream and seasonings. Pour over filling ingredients and bake for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Ham and Swiss Cheese
Zucchini rounds with Red Bell pepper and Green Onion
Crisp bacon pieces and cheddar
Green Chile with Cheddar Jack Cheese and Jalapeno or 1/4 tsp. chili powder, serve with Salsa and Avocado
Diced Spinach Leaves and Fresh Tomatoes or Sun dried Tomatoes

  1. I had someone ask about making this recipe dairy free....somehow I lost the comment in cyber space and cannot contact them directly.

    I think the basic quiche would turn out great using full fat coconut milk instead of the cream and any filling combination sans the cheese. The Spinach and sun dried tomato is full of flavor and I don't think you would even miss the dairy. Please leave a comment and let us know how it turned out. Thanks!
