Welcome to the #SundaySupper Man Food feast! With bits of burger, pockets of cheese, and of course, the most manly food ever – bacon – don’t call this a girly recipe. As breakfast, brunch, or my favorite, brinner, all of your favorite guys will want a slice (or three) of Bacon Cheeseburger Crustless Quiche.
Bacon Cheeseburger Crustless Quiche
When The Hubby and I first started dating, he was on the Atkins Diet. So yeah, man food, that was pretty much it. Beef, bacon, eggs, cheese. Heck, even low carb beer. He stuck with it for awhile, and this sugar- and bread-loving gal was supportive. Sure, our first date was for ice cream, but he was trying to “woo” me and he knew of my addiction. Can’t blame a guy for breaking his diet once night all in the name of love. Lucky for him, it worked.
But after that, when we cooked together, it was often steak and salad or chicken and veggie kabobs on the grill. Except for the time he wanted to make me lasagna. Then I wanted to go to Panera and dunk a big hunk of bread in my black bean soup on pretty much a weekly basis. And, you know, it was summer. Ice cream was pretty much a necessity. And wine. There was definitely wine.
Too bad I didn’t discover my wheat allergy until a few years ago. He might have stuck with it a bit longer. Well, except for the ice cream part. And the wine. #badinfluence
Now I know what you are thinking – quiche? Man food? OK, maybe not so much when it is asparagus and gruyere in a delicate puff pastry crust, or some dainty little spinach quiche appetizers. That is girly. This, my friends, is man quiche…
We are talking BACON. CHEESEBURGER. With none of that pesky crust business to get in the way of all the meaty goodness. Yes, my friends, Bacon Cheeseburger Crustless Quiche. Gluten-free, low carb, but seriously, forget about all that stuff. This is good. Really good. Of course you have eggs and gooey cheese, but when you sink your teeth into meaty bits of beefy burger and ketchup (made especially tasty when you use my bold, thick Homemade Ketchup) and crumbled bacon, it’s just do so much more flavor and texture than any quiche you’ve ever experienced before.
This quiche was part of The Bug’s birthday request for eggs, fruit salad and ice cream, and it was certainly a treat for all of my guys. King Stuff, my baby carnivore who doesn’t love eggs was shoving in fistfuls. The Bug, who loves eggs but could pass up meat anyday ate his fair share. The Hubby, well, I don’t know if it was the potential of weight loss or the justification to eat food like this all the time when he was on the Atkins Diet, but he couldn’t get enough. I’ve made it a few times, and he has declared it a winner each time.
