Low Carb Crustless Quiche
« on: 20 September 2014, 05:26:26 PM »
I realise this is very similar to other recipes already posted but I enjoyed it so much I thought I'd post it anyway  :)

4 eggs
100ml cream (I used double but single would be fine)
100g strong cheddar, grated
100g med cheddar, grated
200g ham chopped
1 x onion, chopped
nutmeg & black pepper (I left out the salt as there's plenty in the cheese).

Beat the eggs & mix in the rest. Butter a 9" quiche dish & bake in the oven for 30 mins @ gas 6

I served it hot with salad but the leftovers cold the next day were even better.

I also tried a variation by frying 500g steak mince with an onion & using instead of the ham. I also added 2 more eggs, it was lovely.

It seems to me that there are endless variations to this recipe.  :)

I haven't tried to work out the carbs as I don't think it has many at all, my kind of eating  :)

It's a bit like a frittata isn't it, except for the cream which probably makes it rather lighter than a frittata.  It does sound nice.  ATM I have 16 eggs in and there's only 2 of us so I've been thinking that this might be a good way to use them up  :)

Yes, lots of variations. Mine is similar but I use more cream and less cheese.

Hi
Nice recipe-- thought i would include the carb values as an assist to anyone who carb counts  :)


single cream  2.2 per 100ml
double cream 2.8 per 100ml
cheddar 0.1 per 100gr
ham 1.0 per 100gr
onion 7.9 per 100gr
egg  trace


that would make the whole dish come out at about 12.8 CHO and assuming portion is 1/4 ??
total carb of 3.2 CHO

I realise that 1g carb in 100g ham is negligible, but out of curiosity I'm wondering how come there's any carbs in ham at all.  I thought it was pure protein.

as it is a processed meat there must be some sugar in the processing -- only thing i can think of -- any glaze or coating such as honey will add significantly to that number though.

Ah... mostly if we have ham I have bought it raw and boiled it myself.  I bought some last Monday cos we'd just got home and the packet we had in the fridge said 0g carbs per 100g.  Of course I usually boil it in cheap cider for flavour, so I spose that might add a few carbs.

hope not hijacking the thread but the conversation i had with my DSN the other day about possibly going on a pump was exactly where this was aimed -- she specifically said that carb counting was to the individual carb as the dosing in a pump was so much more precise than injections -- me just being paranoid and over reacting including the 1gram per 100 grams  ;)

Paul

Whilst I try awfully hard to carb count, it's hardly practical to the individual gram as a rule.  Specially if you eat out... and not in the sort of fast food outlets that publish the carb counts online, but in more individual restaurants where probably even the chef hasn't a clue about carbs despite his gourmet dishes.

I know the thread started as a recipe... but I think discussing carb count is relevant to all diabetics of both types.

I don't think, honestly, that it's feasible for any diabetic in the wild to count carbs down to the gram. For a recipe you made yourself, maybe! But even nutrition info printed on the packet or on the menu can vary a bit (it isn't as if they measured the exact packet you have in your hand, they measured one and use that as an approximation for all the rest). Or say you get a slice of bread with a big bubble in it, that takes how many carbs off the total, exactly? Or a fruit that's a little bit more ripe, that makes it have more sugar, how much exactly? I think it's a bit unreasonable on the part of your nurse! But for a short period of time while trying to demonstrate your "aptness" I guess it's worth the effort :)

Preparing a crustless quiche is quite simple. Find a quiche recipe you like and leave out the crust. If those are all the ingredients you have, your crustless quiche will be more like an Italian frittata. An Italian Frittata is more like an omelet, but better. Most quiche recipes call for first preparing a custard. You can use either a bowl with whisk, or a blender. A standard quiche might use 4 eggs to 1 1/2 cups of heavy or light cream or 1/2 & 1/2, milk or soy or rice milk or any combination of those liquids. This amount of liquid and eggs work well in a deep-dish 9" pie pan. Include seasonings as desired. I usually use salt, pepper and some fresh chopped herbs if I have them or dried herbs.

Or say you get a slice of bread with a big bubble in it .....

That's the prob with France.  When you buy a baguette from anywhere be it a major supermarket chain or the local boulangerie wherever you just happen to be you just have to take a wild stab because even though they are actually baked to a weight of raw dough, the dimensions of one baguette and the air bubbles in it are never the same as the one you had yesterday.  Carb counting then becomes somewhat random and it is frustrating to say the very least!

I've been all over the place and if you did my A1c now, you'd think I didn't even try to dafne.  My average on the meter for 90 days is currently 8.5, 60 days 8.8, 30 days 8.9, 14 days 9.0 and 7 days 10.7.  This is awful but the last x number of weeks I've more or less run out of decent spots on my tum and I'm concerned about it.  But anyway - that's a different prob and I'll sort it.
