Bacon Cheeseburger Keto Breakfast Quiche has those bacon cheeseburger flavors everyone loves in an easy and tasty crustless breakfast quiche. And please don’t skip the pickles; they add an extra touch of bacon-cheeseburger flavor to this dish!
I have to confess that when I proposed to Jake and Kara that we work on a breakfast recipe with bacon cheeseburger flavors, they were skeptical. And our first attempt was definitely not a keeper. But we persevered and had the idea of making it into a quiche so the bacon and ground beef flavors were a bit more concentrated, and we loved this Bacon Cheeseburger Keto Breakfast Quiche!
And as I reminded Jake and Kara, people love bacon cheeseburgers, right? That’s why so many people eat them often, and why Low-Carb Grilled Bacon Cheeseburger Meatballs have been such a big hit on the site.

How to Make Bacon Cheeseburger Keto Breakfast Quiche:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)
- Preheat over to 350F/175C.
- Cook thick bacon until it’s really crisp, then crumble into the bottom of your quiche pan, saving a little bacon to sprinkle on the top.
- Then in the same frying pan, cook one pound of ground beef until it’s well-browned. (You can remove some bacon fat if it seems like too much, but use the bacon fat to cook the ground beef.)
- While the beef cooks, finely chop up 1/2 an onion and 1/4 cup finely diced dill pickles.
- Put the cooked ground beef over the bacon and sprinkle the onion and pickles over the beef.
- Sprinkle one cup (or more) of grated cheese over the top of the other ingredients.
- Beat 8 eggs with cream or half and half, then pour that over the ingredients and gently “stir” with a fork so they’re well combined.
- Season eggs with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, but remember bacon is salty.
- Sprinkle the reserved bacon and the other 1/4 cup grated cheese over the top.
- Bake 35-45 minutes, or until the quiche is completely set, cheese is melted and the top is nicely browned.
Serve hot and enjoy! This is also tasty for lunch of dinner.
