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.

With bits of burger, pockets of cheese, and of course, bacon, everyone will be asking for a second or third slice.
Recipe type: Eggs, Breakfast, Brunch, Dinner
Serves: 6
  • 3 slices of bacon, cooked until crisp
  • 1 teaspoon oil or reserved bacon grease

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F, and coat a 9-inch glass pie plate with oil or coking spray.
  2. Heat the oil or bacon grease in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and pepper, and saute for several minutes until soft and translucent.
  3. Add the ground beef and cook until fully browned, breaking it up as it cooks. Drain off any excess grease.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in the ketchup and Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Transfer to the meat mixture to the prepared pie plate, and top with the bacon and shredded cheddar cheese.

    I love that he broke his diet for your first date, very cute. This quiche sound amazing. I have been looking for some good crustless quiche reipes as mine never turn out so I think I will try it this week.

  2. says

    This makes me think of the first pizza my dad ever made on his own… double bacon cheeseburger! I added onion and peppers to mine but it was such a fabulous combination. A quiche would be amazing!

  3. says

    This is definitely a manly quiche if I ever saw one. I like the story you told about your first date, that’s cute he sacrificed his diet for ice cream and the chance to impress you lol. He’s a keeper!

  4. says

    A man quiche indeed! My hubs is a huge fan of Atkins and is on a modified Atkins now. It really works for him, but it’s like the opposite of how I eat. I too am a #badinfluence. LOL. He would really love this. And so would the kids. I think the next time they come, I’m making this. Such a great idea.

  5. says

    I’m so glad your version of our family favorite cheeseburger frittata has been a hit in your house! I think I am due to put this on our menu again soon!

  6. says

    I loved hearing more about your early courtship days with your hubs, Brianne. Smart man to woo you with ice cream, Atkins diet be damned! You are brilliant for stuffing cheeseburger into quiche – two of my favourite foods! I think I could finish one of these off just my myself. That means I’ll have to make two – one for me and one for my husband. I hope you guys had a great Father’s Day yesterday!

  7. says

    What funny is my husband enjoys quiche with the crust and all. I’m sure he would enjoy this one very much since cheeseburgers are on the top of his favorites list.

  8. says

    This is PERFECT! I am not only gluten-free, but I am also just starting Atkins! :) I’m doing it with my sister for support, not that I can’t stand to lose weight myself…just I’ve never been one to try ‘fad’ diets. Visiting from Show Stopper…mind if I take a look around? Don’t worry, I wiped my feet at the door!! 😉

  9. says

    Looks awesome! I am a big fun of breakfast for dinner on occasion, and this would definitely work. Maybe with some hash browns (not atkins friendly of course, but why not?).

  10. Mel says

    Looks great! Doesn’t say when to put the bacon in, but I will try adding it to the meat mixure at the time the ketchup and worcestershire is added.

  11. Deborah Cook says

    I don’t see where to add the bacon or dry mustard. Am I missing something?

    I just crumbled the bacon and added it as well as the dry mustard when I mixed in the ketchup.
