I was craving a hearty breakfast this morning but was tired of just plain old bacon and eggs. So, I decided to make a Quiche with fat head dough. It was surprisingly faster and easier than I thought. Let me show you how to whip up this filling Quiche in no time!
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese ( I shred my own to avoid fillers and extra carbs)
3/4 cup Almond flour
2 tbsp of Cream cheese
salt & pepper to taste
other spices of your choosing
1-2 tbsp of heavy cream
Fresh baby spinach
1/2 cup of shredded cheese of your choice
salt & pepper to taste ( I use Herbamare seasoning instead of regular salt)
a pinch of paprika
9-9.5 inch pie plate
oil or nonstick spray for greasing the pie plate
First take a medium sauce pan and fill with water. Place a Pyrex or ceramic bowl into the sauce pan to create a type of Bain Marie to gently cook the dough. Place all the ingredients for the dough in the bowl and stir constantly until it forms a ball. This takes about 5 minutes or so to form a dough ball.
I find this method of making the dough much better for me personally. I microwaved it once and it laid in my tummy like a rock and caused so much digestive distress! I almost gave up this wonderful fathead dough because of this experience. But when I tried to make it the old fashioned way on the stove top, my faith was restored! Lol
Next, grease a 9-9.5 inch pie plate and plate dough ball into it. Press it out over the bottom and up the sides to form the crust. Then set aside while you prepare the filling.
Next, beat the eggs with the cream and spices of your choice. I found the most wonderful and healthy salt blend I tasted in a long last year. It is from France and can be purchase on Amazon. The brand is A. Vogel and the product name is Herbamare. Give it a try to replace regular salt in your recipes.
After the eggs are beaten, start layering the crust with the meat, veggies and cheese.
Lastly, pour the eggs and cream mixture over the fillings in the crust. Tap the plate on the counter gently to settle the liquid in to the crust evenly. Then place in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 30-40 minutes
Here is the finished product! Easy peasy! I hope you give this a try. Buon Appetito!
