this is my modified filling for a low carb apple cheddar quiche. Only changes are the low carb milk (instead of 1/2 and 1/2) and stevia in place of sugar. I used mac apples, but the recipe called for granny smith.

Recipe Ingredients for Apple Cheddar Quiche (low carb)

3 medium (3") Apples
2 large Egg, Yolk
4 large Egg, White
1 cup Light 1% Cottage Cheese
1 cup, shredded Cheddar Cheese
4 tbsp Light Butter with Canola Oil
1 tbsp Cinnamon, Ground
6 packet In the Raw Zero Calorie Sweetener
6 oz Calorie Countdown 2% Reduced Fat Dairy Beverage

Recipe Directions for Apple Cheddar Quiche (low carb)

  1. Preheat your oven to 350*

  2. Peel, core, and dice apples into approx. 1 inch cubes. Saute apple pieces in 4 TBS butter until apples are soft and slightly caramelized. Set aside. In large bowl whisk 4 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks with milk and a pinch of salt. Add cottage cheese and mix. Grate cheddar and add to egg mixture. Place apples into prepared pie crust and pour egg mixture over the apples until completely covered and pie plate is filled. Be careful not to over fill, as drippings will cause your oven to smoke. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the top covering all of the egg mixture.

  3. Bake for 45-50 minutes depending on oven variations. Let the quiche set up for at least an hour before serving.
