Pressure Cooker Low Carb Mini Mushroom Quiche
For many people, Eggs are the perfect food.
We love Eggs in this house and since we are watching our Carbohydrate intake, we have been eating more Eggs, than normal.
We keep a good supply of Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs in our refrigerator, for a quick snack. It helps to have them ready to go, when the urge hits and satisfies the tummy.
My Pressure Cooker Low Carb Mini Mushroom Quiche recipe cooks up in the Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker in just a few minutes.
For larger and super cute Mini Quiches, try using these Silicone Flower Cups, like in the above photo.
How cute is that little dipping bowl with the Scallions? I am a sucker for cuteness.
I bought a set of six, which is perfect to use for prepping ingredients and also to use for dipping, like in my Pressure Cooker Rojo Chicken Recipe.
My 2.3 ounce Silicone Egg Bites Trays have been coming in very handy lately.
It helps me with portion control. I have many other recipes planned for these Silicone Molds.
Another delicious recipe using these Trays is my Starbucks Sous Vide Bacon and Jarlsberg Egg Bites.
What is the difference between a Frittata and a Quiche?
- A Quiche is similar to an Egg Custard and generally Heavy Cream is used for the Liquid portion.
- A Frittata is thicker and more like an Omelet.
- A Frittata is usually started on the Stove and finished in the Oven, or or visa versa.
- When I make my Spanish Frittata, I start it on the Stove and finish in the oven. Check out this Pressure Cooker Spanish Frittata (Cuban Style), which I converted for the Pressure Cooker.
My Pressure Cooker Frosted Egg Cupcakes are also more like a Frittata than a Quiche.
The Swiss Cheese will act as the base for the Pressure Cooker Low Carb Mini Mushroom Quiche.
You will want to lightly grease the bottom of the Silicone Molds. I do not grease mine, as the Cheese Crust, helps to naturally grease the wells.
However, if you have an issue with removal, I suggest using a touch of Virgin Coconut Oil.
Try to make the Cheese as even as possible. I do push some of the Cheese up the sides a bit, kind of like a pocket.
Try making my Air Fryer Latkes Bites recipe using Shredded Radish instead! OMG, yum.
We had some company drop by as I was preparing this recipe.
No biggie, I just doubled the recipe and used two of the Silicone Trays at once.
If you want to use a Vitamix to get a fluffier Quiche, whip the Eggs for about 30 seconds. Don’t go crazy.
It is totally fine to just crack the Eggs into a Mixing Bowl and use a Whisk, but if you do, make sure to get the Eggs very frothy.
That ensures a lighter texture. Of course, I always recommend this Flat Whisk.
Divide up the Mushrooms and the Scallions into the six compartments.
Chives work very well here too. Fresh or Dried Chives are fine.
You are probably wondering why I did not add the Fillings to the Egg Mixture.
Adding the Veggies and then pouring in the Whipped Eggs will allow the Veggies to rise to the top.
I just think it looks cool, is all. Like a blanket around the Mushroom Filling. 🙂
If you are a Mushroom lover as I am, check out my Pressure Cooker Chicken Marsala Mushroom Soup. It is divinely decadent. [Said in my best Sally Bowles voice]
If you want to make a double batch, make sure to stack the Silicone Molds in the manner you see above.
Because I am not the most graceful person around, I first put the Tray into the Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker and then I pour in the Eggs.
Another great Low Carb Keto Bomb are my Pressure Cooker Cherry Cordial Cheesecake Bites. Sub out the sugars for Swerve and you have a delicious dessert.
I love the way the Mushrooms rise to the top and the Eggs fill up around them and look so cozy.
The Pressure Cooker Low Carb Mini Mushroom Quiche looks like a blanket around the Mushrooms.
The bottoms will be a bit firm, as the Cheese should stay in place down at the bottom.
A perfect side dish for the Quiche are my Air Fryer Radish Home Fries/Hash Browns.
