This is a very wonderful low carb quiche pie that is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. I've also made it with chicken. I've served it for a ladies brunch and it was raved over. I got this recipe here:
The only thing I did different was to use low carb bread crumbs. I think it would work well with 1/2 cup parmesan instead of the bread crumbs if you don't have any. But any low carb bread you make you can crumb and use. The carb count then will depend on what you use.
