Your holiday guests who don’t care a lick about health and anti-inflammatory eating will ask for seconds. Seriously.
Christmas Morning Bacon Quiche
(AI Keto, Paleo, Whole30)
I love breakfast any day, any time; however, I especially love breakfast on Christmas morning! Looking for something to feed your crew this year? This Christmas Morning Bacon Quiche is the answer! Best part? It fits in with your anti-inflammatory way of eating and is perfect for those following an AI Keto, Paleo or Whole30 template. (AIP friends that have reintroduced eggs will love this, too! OR, you can simply just eat the yummy skillet part…I do!)
Reasons I Love Christmas Morning Bacon Quiche:
- You can assemble it the night before (This means more time with fam in the morning and less time with dishes!
- Proteins and healthy fats here will not cause a sugar-crash and mood issues (no Grinches here!)
- No inflammatory ingredients means no feelings of ickiness (’cause who wants digestive bloat, blood sugar imbalances and achiness during the most wonderful time of the year?)
- Lots of veggies
- BACON (need I say more? If pork isn’t your thing, you can leave it out and still be perfectly satisfied!)
Here’s everything ya need for this yummy breakfast: greens, onions, eggs, mushrooms, bacon, coconut milk and a dash of salt.
It’s So EASY to Make!
Ya just need a skillet and a mixture or a bowl and spoon. Deciding to break out those adorable holiday baking dishes hidden somewhere in the basement is totally up to you!
Combine all veggies and bacon in skillet. Meanwhile, mix up your eggs and coconut milk.
Mixing it up! (You can this with just a bowl and whisk, of course! But I heart my Kitchen Aid!)
Grease your dish with coconut oil. (Or another anti-inflammatory fat of your choice like tallow. You can use ghee or grass-fed butter if you’re not sensitive to dairy.) Remember canola oil is a forever no-no. Olive oil technically could be used here since you’re under 375 degrees…but I wouldn’t chance it. Coconut oil is so much more stable at high heats! Olive oil is will oxidize quicker=inflammation. Keep your olive oil for cold foods like salad dressings!
Pour mixture in dish! You’re ready for your preheated oven set to 355º F! OR, you can cover it and set it in the fridge to make in the morning! WIN!
After 35 minutes, your quiche should be ready for serving! I added a few basil leaves for kicks and giggles. Consider something ultra simple like these frozen berry medley salad topped with fresh mint and frozen coconut shreds! A dash of cinnamon is also uber yummy!
Double-Duty Ingredients for the Win
Okay, so if you’re Christmas Eve dinners are like mine, they almost always consist of the following ingredients:

Well, my friends, if you happen to have any of these hanging out in the fridge, then consider swapping ingredients for what you already have on hand!
Joy, Pure Joy
