Low-Carb Comfort Food
My favorite comfort food of ALL-TIME is my mom's quiche recipe.
Every year on Christmas Day… the savory smell of quiche baking wafts through the house…
The kids come running up the stairs asking “How Much Longer”?
Your New Favorite Keto Comfort Food
The secrets of my mom's Keto Quiche lie in the magical flavor enhancers she used…
You don't taste any of these seasonings in the finished product. Their magic comes in the way they enhance the savory flavors of all the yummy stuff packed into this casserole.
And even better…
We snuck a serving of veggies in.
When my family first tasted this, they didn't believe there were ANY veggies in it.
It's THAT good.
Go ahead, serve it up and don't mention the cauliflower rice hiding in here. They won't know it's there!
Modifying Our Original Quiche Recipe
The original recipe, found here contained a number of non-keto ingredients.
I reconfigured the ratio of eggs to liquid and completely omitted the cream of mushroom soup.
I got rid of the milk and used a combination of heavy cream and unsweetened almond milk instead. If you wanted to bump up the fat a little more–use all heavy cream.
Finally, I replaced the bread with cauliflower rice.
In the end, I had a delicious keto quiche that tastes eerily like the original recipe!
This casserole is incredibly versatile!
It's truly comfort food meets practicality.
So versatile that it's become a staple in our keto diet.
We like to mix things up by using organic ground beef and adding a tsp of homemade taco seasoning plus a tsp of salt. This makes a great Tex-Mex casserole.
Substitute bacon or ham for the ground sausage or mix a few of these together to keep things interesting!
Swap out the meat for some of your favorite veggies such as lightly steamed broccoli, fresh mushrooms or a handful of chopped fresh tomato.

To have this done faster, thaw the riced cauliflower in the microwave before mixing it in. This will reduce baking time to approximately 50 minutes!
