Broccoli Quiche Recipe Ingredients
This keto crustless quiche recipe is totally delicious and so simple to make!
It only requires 9 ingredients to make this healthy and comforting breakfast or brunch. Most of them you'll already have in the kitchen!
Eggs - make sure to use large eggs that are at room temperature.
Broccoli - chop up the broccoli florets into your desired size. The quiche works well with both bigger and smaller pieces of broccoli.
Ground beef - you can also substitute this for other meats or take it out all together. Ham, sausage and bacon are excellent choices for a broccoli cheese quiche.
Sour cream - adds extra moisture to the quiche to give it the perfect tender inner layer.
Parmesan cheese - adds a delicious savory undertone that compliments the broccoli florets. If you're not a fan of Parmesan or don't have any on hand, you can substitute it for a sharp cheddar instead.
Butter - preferably use grass-fed butter that is at room temperature.
Baking powder - works with the eggs and sour cream to create the classic quiche texture we all love.
Seasonings - you'll only need sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
