Paleo crustless bacon & veggie quiche

Submitted by: KATISCARLET

Introduction

I made this up to use the veggies I had in the fridge. I'm sure you could sub in just about anything you want. For the strict paleo follower, skip the cheese. I'm not quite so strict. I personally think cheese is the origin of all happiness so I totally live it up. No, this recipe won't blow your mind, but it's yummy, easy, and has great paleo / primal numbers so I'm all over it.

Ingredients

    Coconut Oil, 1 1tsp

    Hempler's Natural Bacon (per slice), 8 slices

    Shallots, 5 tbsp chopped (can sub about 1/2 onion)
    Asparagus, fresh, 8 medium spears cut into 1" pieces
    Spinach, fresh, 1.5 cup, chopped
    Swiss Cheese, 1 cup, shredded

    Coconut Milk, 1.5 cup
    Egg, fresh, 12 large
    Salt & Pepper to taste, 1 serving

Tips

Season with whatever you like. Saute some garlic when you add the spinach (not before or it will burn), add some Old Bay, or whatever you think sounds good.

Use light coconut milk; the numbers are lower if you do that. I didn't see it in the food list or I would have selected it.

I avoid milk (but not cheese) but it can easily be used instead of coconut milk.

Don't skimp on the coconut oil. It may have calories, but it is a fat your body LOVES to work with and it's the best non-stick product I know of.

Hempler's natural bacon is nitrate and nitrite free, so it doesn't have all the dangerous stuff normal bacon has. Viva la bacon!


Directions

Preheat oven to 350*

Grease a 9"x13" baking dish with coconut oil. I suggest heating the pan ever so slightly and rubbing a block of cold oil all over it.

Dice bacon then saute until crispy, set aside

Saute shallots bacon grease until transparent. Add asparagus and saute for 2 minutes. Add spinach and stir frequently until spinach is wilted.

Combine bacon and veggies and spread onto bottom of pan.

Sprinkle cheese on top of mixture.

Combine eggs and coconut milk in a bowl and whisk or beat lightly to mix well. Add salt and pepper.

Pour egg mixture over stuff in the pan. Place pan in the over and cook for 35 minutes.

Cut into 8 large slices. Mine were about 4" x 3" each and about 1" thick.
