Savory and satisfying, this easy keto quiche with sausage and spinach is a treat any time of day. Whether it’s breakfast, brunch, or dinner, you’re going to love this crustless twist on a French classic.
If you had to describe keto in a word breakfast dish, I think quiche would be my pick. Some might argue bacon but quiche, it just has all the components of a classic keto breakfast in one dish.
Keto quiche is also much less fussier than traditional quiche. You don’t have to worry about preparing a pie crust, adding in the extra step of baking said pie crust, or holding your breath every time you cut a slice anxiously watching to see if the crust falls apart.
Nope, keto quiche doesn’t have any of those things.
This sausage and spinach keto quiche is a spin off of my scrumptious breakfast burrito quiche. It’s a simple recipe that even the most novice of bakers can make. It makes for great meal prep and can feed a crowd!
Mom to mom tip: let your kids help make this one. They can’t really mess it up!

Serving Your Easy Keto Breakfast Quiche
With people returning to work on the rise, having easy and tasty meals prepared can save you not only time but headaches!
This sausage and spinach keto quiche makes for an excellent dinner as much as it does breakfast or brunch. You can serve it with simple dressed greens and Mexican cauliflower rice for a hearty dinner or enjoy it alone with coffee eat your desk.
Personally, I like to top mine with a slice of avocado and a dollop of sour cream.
Of course, if you don’t want to eat it all right away, you can freeze individual slices and reheat them as needed. Just wrap each slice in plastic wrap and place in a baggie to prevent freezer burn.
To reheat, either thaw in the refrigerator or use the defrost setting on your microwave. Either way, this low carb breakfast quiche reheats fabulously!
Ingredients and Substitutions
- Sausage: if you’re not a fan of pork, ground beef or ground turkey would be a great substitute in this quiche. If you like a little extra spice, try hot sausage or chorizo.
- Spinach: fresh spinach is best in this recipe because it contains less water than frozen. If you must use frozen spinach, make sure to fully drain or squeeze out the excess water before adding it to the sausage.
- Mexican blend cheese: use whatever cheese you have on hand. Gouda, Swiss, Manchego, or Havarti would also be fantastic in this keto quiche.
- Pie Crust: no pie crust is used in this recipe. However, if you must have one, try out this recipe by Low Carb Yum or this recipe by Kasey Trenum.

You were right on the money with this recipe, it is devine. I have a favorite quiche recipe that I have made for years. Guess what? It has been replaced with yours. I used Jimmy Dean sausage and am a big spinach fan. Thanks VERY much.
