Whether you choose to serve these low carb mini quiches hot or chilled, there is no doubt you will enjoy them. You can see in the picture they are garnished with some sour cream and chives. This would be a nice idea if you were to make them for a special occasion but if they are just for you then just serve them as they are, perhaps with some fried mushrooms and half a tomato to complete your low carb breakfast.

These low carb mini quiches are very simple to make and if you don’t eat meat you can swap the bacon for something else, perhaps some diced veggies. You can see in the recipe the optional veggies are cooked with the onion. If you prefer some crunch in your quiche feel free not to cook the onion or any other veggies and instead just add them to the quiches before baking. That way they will come out crispy, adding interesting texture to the mini quiches.
