Hi! I created Ketology after struggling for years with hormonal changes and weight gain. As I got older, I found managing my weight and moods became more and more of a struggle. Within 3 months of switching to a ketogenic lifestyle tailored for my age, I not only shed 30 pounds of stubborn fat, but my mood improved, my focus sharpened and I have had nothing but positive effects! Learn more about my journey here.

We are big brunch people in our household. We love to go out for Sunday brunch here and there and also have brunch each Sunday – whether it’s for our family of three or for friends and family. I enjoy hosting brunch because it’s a wonderfully easy way to entertain — the midday and relaxed vibe is just perfect for unwinding, sharing good food and catching up.

I’ve certainly perfected the art of hosting a keto-friendly brunch – from pancakes and bagels to Eggs Benedict and crustless keto quiche! Here, I’m sharing my two favorite Keto Quiche – Keto Quiche Lorraine and Keto Smoked Salmon Quiche  – recipes that even your non-keto family members and friends will love!

To state the obvious, most quiche recipes would be keto if it weren’t for the crust…so these are all crustless but the trick in serving a keto quiche that doesn’t fall apart is to invert it onto a plate after baking. Trying to serve a crustless quiche out of a pie plate can end in disaster, but the simple step of inverting in onto a plate makes keto quiches easy to serve and also offers a pretty presentation at the same time! TIP: Make sure to let your keto quiche set for at least 15 minutes in the pie plate once you remove it from the oven, and then let it set another 10 – 15 minutes AFTER putting it on the serving plate to make sure you get perfect quiche slices every time!
