Paleo Chicken Bacon Mushroom Quiche | stephgaudreau.comThis Paleo Chicken Bacon Mushroom Quiche is incredibly easy to make and uses up leftover meat you may have in your fridge.

What Makes a Paleo Quiche?

First, it’s crustless. You *could* make a gluten-free crust but that takes time, and I wanted this to be as quick as possible. Second, unlike regular quiche, this has no dairy (no milk, cream or cheese). Rest assured, it’s still ultra-tasty!

What’s the Difference Between a Quiche and a Frittata?

Technically it’s the amount of liquid you add. A frittata has very little while a quiche has more, resulting in a more custard-like texture to the eggs.

I did cut the amount of liquid down to 1 cup so if you’re a quiche purist, go easy on me! You can change up this Paleo Chicken Bacon Mushroom Quiche in a variety of ways.

Change Up This Quiche

  • Instead of dried mushrooms, use about 2 cups of sliced fresh mushrooms, any kind. Be sure to fry them down before you use them so they don’t add a lot of moisture to the quiche.
  • Don’t have any chicken? Use any leftover meat you’d like or just go meatless. If you don’t add meat, I recommend adding a veggie in its place.
  • Don’t like coconut milk? Use another nut milk of choice (homemade almond milk is great…I would make it extra thick by cutting the water down to 3 cups instead of 4).
  • Double the ingredients and make a mega-sized quiche for the week ahead.

Ingredients

  • 2 oz dried shiitake mushrooms
  • 6 strips bacon chopped
  • 1.5 cups leftover shredded chicken
  • 2 tsp dried sage leaves
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • Coconut oil for greasing

Instructions

  1. If using dried mushrooms, soften them by covering them with boiling water in a heat-proof bowl for about 30 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a casserole dish or glass baking dish with coconut oil. I used a 10″ round casserole. If you use a smaller one, you may have to bump up the baking time a few minutes since the quiche will be thicker.

  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, render and brown the bacon. Add the leftover chicken, mushrooms and sage to the pan and cook for a few minutes, making sure there is no moisture left from the mushrooms (if not, your quiche will be soggy…no bueno). Dump this mixture into the greased casserole dish, and set aside.
  4. Crack the eggs into a medium bowl. Add the coconut milk, sea salt and pepper. Whisk to combine. Pour the egg mixture into the casserole dish.
  5. Bake the quiche for about 30 minutes or until the center is set and not jiggly.
