Bacon for Crust Brie Quiche, Low Carb & Gluten Free

May 1, 2012

I like to limit my carbs, eating them sparingly in my weekday diet. I usually have a very low carb breakfast. This quiche saves the day! It is an excellent protein filled breakfast or snack that is easy and cheap to make.


Whether you are an Atkins or SouthBeachfan or not – this is super tasty and you won’t miss the crust. Promise!



  • 1 package of 8-14 slices of Canadian Bacon
  • 1 round or wedge of Brie Cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup mayo
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese
  • Dried or fresh basil to taste
  • Pepper to taste



  • 9in pie plate (5 eggs for 8in plate)


Remove the rind from your Brie. Cut the cheese into smallish chunks. Mix both kinds of cheese, eggs and mayo until blended.


Spray a pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. This isn’t really to keep anything from sticking but rather to make a good seal between the Canadian bacon and the plate.


Lay out the Canadian bacon like so:

Pour the egg mixture over top, season to your heart’s content. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, or until the center is set. Let stand for a few minutes before devouring.


I actually make this at least once a month and take a slice a day to work for breakfast for the week. It reheats really well and holds it’s shape. You can pick it up to eat it. I reheat for 20seconds on high in the microwave. It make it easy to get a good breakfast and stay low carb.  Bonus points for nitrite free Canadian bacon!

What are your favorite ways to use eggs?

    Sounds great. I usually just make mine sans crust, but this would be even better!

    I have made this several times now, and really love the way it comes out. Never used brie much before but it’s really nice in this recipe.
