You’ve heard it before, and you’ll hear it again, that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Well, it’s true. Studies have shown that skipping breakfast can have serious negative effects on metabolism, concentration, energy levels, and cardiac health among other things.
On top of this, skipping breakfast means missing an opportunity for pure, unadulterated deliciousness. Why on earth would anyone want to do that to themselves? It’s just wrong.
So with that said, it’s time to jump on the breakfast train with this delicious Paleo Breakfast Quiche. It’s super simple to make and keeps well in the fridge for leftovers.
For the crust, I went with the Simon & Garfunkel herb medley, but you can choose to use whatever seasonings you prefer. For the filling, I used what I had in my refrigerator (sausage, peppers, and onions – what I like to call the Jersey Shore combo), but you can add pretty much anything. In the past I have used bacon, spinach, and a handful of other options. It’s totally up to you. It’s all about the freedom fillings. Mix it up, get funky, have at it.
Either way, I’m sure that after enjoying this Paleo breakfast Quiche, however you choose to fill it, you won’t want to skip breakfast again.
Paleo Breakfast Quiche Recipe
- 1 ½ cups almond flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. parsley
- ½ tsp. sage
- ½ tsp. rosemary
- ½ tsp. thyme
- ½ tsp. sea salt
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 Tbs. water
- 5 eggs
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 cup onions, chopped
- 1 cup peppers, chopped
- 1 cup sausage, chopped
- 1 Tbs. olive oil or bacon fat for sautéing
- ¼ tsp. sea salt
- Preheat the oven to 350°.
- For the crust, combine all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Then add the olive oil and water, and, using your hands, form the mixture into a dough-like ball.
- Press the dough into a 9” inch greased baking dish.
- Place the crust into the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until edges are golden brown.
- Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil or bacon fat then add the garlic.
- When the garlic becomes fragrant, add your additional filling ingredients (I used onions, peppers, and sausage), and sauté until cooked to your liking (about 5-10 minutes).
- In a large bowl, whisk 5 large eggs. Add the sautéed fillings and mix well to combine. By now, your crust should also be done.
- Pour the egg and filling mixture into the crust, then bake in the oven at 350° for 30 minutes. Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
