Low Carb Quiche Lorraine Muffins


  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • ¼ cup chopped white onion
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground pepper
  • ½ tsp dried thyme
  • 4 large eggs
  • ¼ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup shredded gruyere cheese
  • Pinch ground nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 and line 6 muffin cups with silicone liners (or grease the muffin pan very well).
  2. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the chopped bacon until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a mixing bowl.
  3. Add the onion to the bacon grease and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and thyme. Lower the temperature and cook until the onion is translucent, about 3 minutes. Transfer to the bowl.
  4. Add the eggs and heavy cream, and whisk until well combined, then stir in the cheese and nutmeg.
  5. Divide the mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups and bake 15 to 20 minutes, until completely set. Remove and let cool at least 10 minutes before serving.

Delicious but a tad too salty with traditionally ground salt. Perhaps kosher salt would be perfect since the crystals are larger (or use a little less).

Like little soufflés. Mine rose beautifully. Then sank. Then rose again with a bit more time in the oven. Then sank again. Taste good though.

Carolyn’s recipes are always a hit. So many online recipes are a big disappointment but hers taste good and work well. I know I can count on her for quality and all around success.
