Quiche Lorraine with bacon and spinach


This low carb version of a French cuisine gem is rich in fats and protein, very satisfying for the beginning or end of the day. And it is versatile, you can change filling and make it with leeks, tomato, ham, whatever suits your taste and you have in a fridge at the moment. And crust alone is so delicious, you won’t miss one with a white flour. And the best of all- this pie is a great way to sneak up veggies in your kid’s diet, it will please the pickiest eater!!
