“The classic quiche, with its onions, lardons and cheese, loses its crust and becomes a frittata. Great for those on low-carb diets. Adapted from a recipe by Aida Mollenkamp at CHOW.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Whisk together eggs, 1 1/4 cups of the cheese, milk and salt until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Melt butter in olive oil in a large, oven-safe frying pan, over medium-high heat. When butter foams, add shallots and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until shallots soften, about 3 minutes. Add Canadian bacon and thyme, and cook another 3 minutes, stirring only once or twice, until bacon is browned.
  4. Pour eggs in pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook until the eggs are set 1" from the edge of the pan, about 10-15 minutes. Sprinkle remaining cheese evenly over the surface of the eggs and place under broiler, until puffy, golden-brown and set in the middle, 4-5 minutes.
