Mushroom Crusted Ham and Cheese Pie

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.

  1. YUMMY had this last night and the Lemon Cream Pie. We all loved it. Cooked up the mushrooms and onions with all the butter in an iron skillet and just assembled it all in there. Didnt have the garlic herb cream cheese so sprinkled in some garlic powder, dill, and tarragon into regular cream cheese. Used a piece of toasted Ezekial bread for the crumbs and white sharp cheddar as my lil one is allergic to any food colorings including the annato in yellow cheeses. THANK YOU!!!

  2. I've usde regular cream cheese also and added my own herb and garlic seasonings. Glad it worked for you!
