I have a new stance. The best way to make a quiche is in the Instant Pot. Periodt. It’s extremely easy and takes away the fear of the quickest way to ruin a quiche: overcooking your eggs. 

The result of the amazing steam bath that happens inside your Instant Pot is a creamy and delicious quiche perfect for your next breakfast. 

You can even prepare this Instant Pot quiche the night before you plan to enjoy it and pop the pan in your pressure cooker to work its magic while you get ready!

How can I customize this Instant Pot quiche?

The possibilities are truly endless! From bacon to sausage to caramelized onion, to switching up the kinds of cheeses to even adding pepperoni…there is so much opportunity to make this quiche your own. 

The method is the most important part, and that stays the same no matter the ingredients. 

To make it the way I did, though, you’ll need:

  • Eggs
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Crumbled Feta Cheese
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Chopped Red Onion
  • Diced Ham

And that’s it! These simple ingredients created a perfect low carb breakfast that’s absolutely full of flavor! 

Do I need to wrap my quiche with aluminum foil?

Short answer: Yes. I would highly recommend covering your quiche pan with foil. It’ll keep excess moisture from getting into your quiche which could lead to the final product being very watery. 

Just like with an Instant Pot Low Carb Cheesecake, for best results, don’t skip the foil.
