How to Make Keto Smoked Salmon Crustless Quiche
Preheat oven to 350F.
Chop the smoked salmon into small pieces and add it into a ceramic or glass pie dish, that's been sprayed with nonstick spray. Reserve a small amount to add over the top right before baking.
In a large mixing bowl, add in the eggs, heavy cream, salt and pepper, then whisk until well combined.
Chop up the chives and add them over the salmon.
Then add the Monterey Jack cheese.
Pour the egg mixture and crumble the goat cheese on top, and finally add the remaining pieces of salmon.
Bake for 35 minutes or until the eggs have set.
Allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting into wedges and serving. Store leftovers in an airtight container for up to several days.
Tips for the Perfect Crustless Quiche
Quiche is basically one of those fail-proof type recipes. However, here are a few tried and true tips to make sure your quiche turns out perfect every time.
Why is My Quiche too Loose or Watery?
Eggs need protein to help set them. If you add to much heavy cream to the mixture, it will result in the quiche being too soft or runny.
How do I Keep Crustless Quiche from Sticking?
Eggs just naturally stick to most anything you bake them in so you'll definitely want to use some nonstick spray on the baking dish before adding the mixture.
Do I Have to Let Keto Salmon Crustless Quiche Cool Before Cutting?
A good rule of thumb on cooling most any type of quiche is to allow it to cool slightly, but still serve when warm. So allow 10-15 minutes of cooling before you cut into it. Trust me, it's worth the wait!
What Goes with Crustless Quiche?
There are so many options for what to serve along with your Salmon Crustless Quiche. A simple green salad with some homemade Bacon Ranch Dressing would be a great option.
During the cold winter months, a side cup of piping hot Broccoli Cheddar Soup would be ideal. Or if you're wanting to keep things light, just serve up with some of your favorite berries!
Can I Make this Recipe as Mini Quiche?
You sure can! Pour the mixture in sprayed silicone muffin cups or silicone muffin pan and bake on the same temp. You will need to reduce the baking time since these are smaller portions.
What are the Carbs in Crustless Quiche?
If you are on Keto or a low carb diet, you couldn't ask for a better low carb brunch recipe. Because this is a crustless quiche recipe, you are saving on most the carbs.
This Smoke Salmon Keto Quiche only has 2 grams of carbs per serving!
Can I Freeze Leftover Crustless Quiche?
You sure can! There's nothing to it. Just allow the quiche too cool completely. Leaving it in the dish you baked it in, double wrap it with plastic wrap and stick it in the freezer. It will keep perfectly fine for up to 3 months frozen.
Another one of the beautiful things about crustless quiche is there is no need to thaw it before cooking it. Preheat the oven to 350F degrees and bake for about 45 minutes.

Hello there ,
I used Herb N Garlic Cream Cheese and it was Fantastic , we do not like Goat Cheese or Feta. Really Delicious and Good nough for Guests too . We had this with some White Wine . It was Yummy.

That sounds like a delicious substitution. I am so glad you all enjoyed it. 😊
I got a LOT of smoked salmon on a really good deal so I was looking for some different ways to use it. Enter this easy and tasty recipe! It is so easy to throw this together in a matter of minutes. But the flavors are amazing! The smoked salmon and the goat cheese - DEELISH!!! My honey looked kind of skeptical when I told him what dinner was but once he tasted it he was hooked. He even asked if there were leftover so he could take some for lunch. Definitely a hit and will be on 'repeat' on the menu.

This is awesome! The flavors in this quiche are so good. I am so glad you enjoyed it.
This looks really delicious! What would be a good substitute for goat cheese? Would Parmesan work?
Keto Cooking Christian
Sure, but I'd say feta cheese might work even better!
