    This recipe is so great! I made it for Easter brunch with sausage, asparagus, mushrooms and compte cheese. I upped the temperature to 360, and it took 40 minutes until perfect. I made it again today because my husband and two year old loves it so much! Thank you for a great keto recipe! I will make it again and again!

    Thank you so much for the recipe, have made it twice now with different fillings, each time my picky eaters enjoyed it. I love how easy the crust recipe is and that it can be used for sweet or savoury versions.

    • Hello Yulia,

      Thank you, so gal you like it. The serving size will vary depending on the size of eggs that you get etc but one serve is around 100g but could vary 10g or so either way.

      We’ve just cut it into 10 even pieces. Hope that helps.

  4. Unfortunately there as no indication on the size of the quiche dish so mine had far too much grate cheese and the egg mixture went all over the place and a third was left in the bowl. Quite an oversight if you’re telling people how to make something. Tell them what size quiche dish you’re [email protected]@

    • Hi Ss,

      I’m sorry to hear that the quiche didn’t work out for you. I just doubled checked and the recipe states to use a 10in quiche dish, I’m not sure how you missed it.

  5. Delicious! We loved it and will make again! I also made a pepper, onion, mushroom one with the same recipe…again so delicious! Crust was awesome. Will use it for other recipes. Had to bake about an 15 minutes in my oven. Make sure you have a cookie sheets under, as mine ran over and I had a smoky mess.

  6. I absolutely love this quiche, as do my husband and young son. I am on keto so I appreciate that it’s very low carb, but also it tastes really rich and creamy. I usually use full fat coconut milk instead of dairy since I always have it in my pantry. I’ve made this several times with different fillings and cheeses. It comes out great every time. I typically have to add five minutes to the baking time. Thanks so much!

  7. This was really tasty! Thanks! I’ll make the base a little thinner and precook it a bit longer but the filling is delicious. Thanks!

    • Hi Tara,

      The filling by itself can be baked at the same temperature as listed in the recipe, it may need a little extra time though.

  8. O.M.G. this was amazing. I cannot wait for supper now! I substituted the Gruyere cheese (what’s that?) with white cheddar and added some grated Parmesan. Absolutely delicious! We have cream, cream or cream, so just used that anyway!

    • Hi Pippa,

      Gruyere is a delicious hard cheese from Switzerland and it’s very, very tasty when cooked into a quiche. I’m glad you enjoyed it with the white cheddar and parmesan!

  9. I was shocked how gorgeous this quiche was, even my husband who doesn’t like quiche said it was lovely. Will definitely make this again and again.

  10. Cooking the base at 170C/340F worked well, but this was nowhere near hot enough to cook the quiche. And definitely not in 25 to 35 minutes. Try 180C/360F for 40 minutes. Other than that, a good recipe. I added cooked zucchini and spinach to mine… and more eggs and less cream.

    • Hi Jake,

      The addition of other ingredients will affect the cooking time, as well as adding more eggs. I’m not surprised that it took longer to cook!

      Good to hear that you still enjoyed it!

    • Hi Debbie,

      I’m so glad your family loved it! Yes it can be frozen, I recommend defrosting in the fridge before reheating.

    Really excellent!
    Such a success, I made another with salmon and asparagus filling- they’re both a terrific solution to lunch or dinner and particularly on those days when you just want to add a salad to a meal without having to cook from scratch
    Thank you

  17. I have numerous food allergies ,dairy being one . would it be possible to use canned coconut milk in this instead of whipping cream?

    Reply
    • Hi Niccii,

      I haven’t tried it, but I think that coconut cream would fair better than the milk. Let me know how it goes 🙂

    Love this recipe. Both the crust and filling are tasty. It is not too eggy. I include spinach in mine. The Gruyere cheese in this dish is amazing and who could go wrong with bacon. This is a repeat for certain.

    This recipe is lovely – especially the crust. Best crust ever, in my book!
    The filling is yummy, but let’s face it you could use any filling you like.

    This crust is delicious and I especially appreciate that it is pressed into the pan rather than rolled out. All enjoyed this quiche and we have a bit leftover for lunch tomorrow! Thank you!

  21. When you say “2 ounces” of butter for the crust, is that by weight or volume? Can you say how many tablespoons melted will equal 2 ounces? Thank you! Very looking forward to making this!

      I’ve made this several times and love the recipe! I cut mine into 8 pieces and use heavy cream for added fat, and I omit the onions. The cruise is phenomenal! I use this e crust recipe for almost all my pies now!
