Last Friday before grocery shopping I racked my brain and pouredover Pinterest posts. I searched high and low for something new and yummy to make for lunch for a Mermaids at Heart crafting day. Roberta of Ketonian Nerds was coming over and I knew we’d be ready to dive into some heavenly food the minute it was time to break our individual fasts. My usual Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole (minus the potatoes) kept coming to mind for its ease and simplicity. In short, something altogether special happened when I combined the ingredients I had on hand. Cheesy Meaty Keto Quiche was born!
Slow Cooker vs. Toaster Oven
Rather than dealing with the slow cooker since I’m a serious procrastinator, I planned to use my wonderful toaster oven. I bought it specifically because a 9×13 pan can fit in it.
Ro is on 20+ hour fasts, I’m still on 16 hours. Surprisingly, it worked out that we could eat at the same time that day. Joy of joys! We’re both foodies of the first degree and happened to have almost identical tastes. She made her crazy delicious Keto Cracka-lackin Crackers to go with my super savory Keto Green Chile Artichoke Dip. Mm mmm mmmm!
Here’s how the Cheesy Meaty Keto Quiche came together…
I started throwing eggs and meats together with wild abandon… LOL Just joking. 😄 That is to say, I carefully cracked the eggs into a large mixing bowl and added the cream, cheese, salt, and pepper. For the Cheesy Meaty Keto Quiche, use these three packaged items below if you want yours to taste exactly the way we adored it. All my guys loved it, too!
