Bacon Quiche Recipe
Quiche is not necessarily the first recipe that comes to mind when you’re thinking healthy recipes. Typically made with a store bought pie crust and half and half, quiches are known for being tasty but not too friendly to our health. This bacon quiche recipe will have you rethinking quiche in a whole new way.
I don’t spend hours in the kitchen, and you shouldn’t have to, either. This bacon quiche recipe is fun to make. Did you know that with a few eggs and some almond flour you can make an amazing gluten-free crust? This dish only takes minutes to mix up and 15-20 minutes to bake. The notion that healthy eating takes a time commitment is wildly outdated.
These bacon quiches are mini in size only. The taste is sensational. You won’t blink an eye eating to your heart’s content, knowing that they are full of nutritious goodness. Eggs are a very good source of inexpensive, high-quality protein. More than half the protein of an egg is found in the egg white, along with vitamin B2 and lower amounts of fat and cholesterol than the yolk. The whites are rich sources of selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12, and minerals such as zinc, iron, and copper. Red pepper is an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of carotenoids), vitamin C, and vitamin B6. These quiches are a great source of folate, molybdenum, vitamin E, dietary fiber, vitamin B2, pantothenic acid, niacin and potassium, too.

While bacon is high in animal fat and is not considered an everyday food, it may be something to enjoy from time to time. If you steer clear of animal proteins, try adding an assortment of mushrooms, extra veggies, or even a meatless protein.
