Simple Keto Quiche (No Crust)

This recipe makes for the perfect low-carb, healthy meal prep for when you are on the go and need something quick for breakfast, a snack or light lunch. Simply combine the minimal ingredients together, bake and slice and you are ready to go.

The ‘secret’ ingredient here is cottage cheese. This light, mild and creamy cheese gives the quiche some extra body and a lovely texture. I make a lot of dishes with cottage cheese because it’s so versatile, but this one is right up there with my favorite keto cottage cheese recipes.
