Chorizo Quiche With or Without Crust


This quiche is so decadent. It has a delicious crust that can be used for pie as well, just add a little sweetener and a little vanilla extract. The filling is versatile. You could add any meat or veggies that you wish. You can make it with or without the crust. I recommend using bacon grease or butter to grease the pie dish.

Crust Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 Cups Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Melted Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 Egg

Mix all together and press into a 9” pie plate. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. The crust will be partially baked.

Filling Ingredients:

  • 10 oz Chorizo
  • 1/4 Cup Diced Onion
  • 6 Eggs Beaten
  • 1/2 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 6oz Cheese I used Pepper Jack
  • Salt & Pepper to taste

Sauté onions in butter, add chorizo and cook through. Add Chorizo & onions to partially baked pie crust. Pour cream into eggs and beat along with salt and pepper. Pour over chorizo then top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. The edges should be firm and the center should be just a little bit jiggly. The crustless quiche takes about 24 minutes.

Let it cool down and set them serve.
