Quiche Florentine Recipe

Quiche Florentine

“If you’re looking for a delicious keto quiche recipe, you’re about to be very happy. This hearty florentine quiche with sausage recipe is great for breakfast, brunch, or even dinner! With just four net carbs per serving, it’s easy to fit this dish into your keto macros. You can make this dish near zero net carbs by going with a crustless quiche. If you’re experimenting with the carnivore diet, eliminate the crust and the spinach and bake the egg mixture in the same dish to make this keto quiche recipe into a carnivore diet recipe instead.” – Cheryl McColgan

USWM Shopping List: Pastured Pork Breakfast Sausage, Gouda Cheese, Tallow


For the Crust:

  • 1 ½ cups almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, beaten

For the Filling:

  • 1 teaspoon tallow or olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped green onion
  • 8 ounces fresh spinach
  • 8 ounces breakfast sausage
  • 6 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces gouda cheese, shredded
  • 3 ounces cherry tomatoes, optional, for garnish, halved or quartered
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, optional for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Add the almond flour, gelatin, salt, butter, and egg in a medium mixing bowl. Mix to combine thoroughly.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  4. Place the dough in a greased 9″ pie plate and use your fingers to press evenly into the pie plate.
  5. Cover with parchment paper and add pie weights, if using.
  6. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and firm.
  7. Remove crust from oven and let cool for at least 5 minutes. Leave the oven on.

In the meantime, prepare the quiche filling.

  1. In a large skillet, heat the tallow or olive oil.
  2. Place the garlic and onion in the skillet and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. Add spinach to the skillet and cook until wilted about 3 minutes.
  4. Remove the spinach mixture from the skillet and place in a large mixing bowl. (If you have a large enough skillet, you can leave the spinach in while you cook the meat.)
  5. Add sausage to the skillet, breaking up the meat. Continue to cook until sausage is evenly browned.
  6. Pour the sausage into the spinach mixture and stir to combine.
  7. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and salt, add in the cheese, and stir to combine.
  8. Pour the sausage mixture into the crust.
  9. Pour the egg mixture over the sausage.
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes or until eggs are set and slightly golden.
