I fixed this for breakfast today and it’s probably the best breakfast quiche I’ve done to date.  Very little went into this but it sure was tasty.  Induction friendly.


6 oz. grated zucchini

3 oz. onion, chopped

5 slices bacon, chopped

5 eggs, beaten

1 c. Cheddar cheese, grated

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º.  Over medium-hi heat, brown bacon in non-stick skillet.  Add onion and cook until lightly browned.  Add zucchini and continue cooking until zucchini begins to look translucent.  Sprinkle cheese on top evenly.  Beat eggs and pour evenly over the top.  Pop into oven for about 15-20 minutes or until center is no longer “wet”.  Cut into 5 wedges and serve.

    Hi there! im new to atkins site but trying to branch out on my recipes, i was wondering about what size pan do you put this in to bake? do you bake in the same pan you fry the bacon and everything in?

      Welcome to my website, Rebecca. Yes, I usually use a 9″ non-stick skillet when whipping up quiches like this. The eggs are just poured right over all the ingredients already in the skillet and it is baked in that. Of course, if doing for company, you might prefer to transfer it to a pretty greased quiche pan. I don’t bother just for the two of us. 🙂

    Thanks a million. Have a hard time fixing breakfast. This is one I can do once and have for other days. I think I can freeze this also.

    Looking for any breakfast quick fixes for Phase 1

      Quite a few of my breakfast recipes are Induction friendly. I indicate that in the narrative for each recipe. Oh, and be sure you scroll way down to the bottom of the pages to get to the OLDER POSTS link. I have quite a few that are already in archives.

    Just this morning I was thinking that I need to make a breakfast casserole and have it handy to reheat during the week. And voila, you’re my magic genie 😉 Thanks

      Just double this recipe and it should keep the week just fine! Gee, now I’m a magic genie! I’m getting to wear a lot of hats these days. 🙂 I haven’t quite perfected my yeast bread recipe so the folks on the Atkins forums will go on and canonize me, as some said they would when I get that one to perfection. LOL Only thing, is Im’ a perfectionist, so I probably never will and never get canonized. Shucks. LOL
