Gluten Free Quiche {No Roll Crust}

Easy Gluten Free Quiche Recipe - Photo

We have been making variations of this gluten free quiche for a full year now and I think I have finally landed on the combination that works best for everyone.  My kids love to call this Egg Pizza and it is a favorite as breakfast for dinner or weekend lunches.  This gluten free quiche is super adaptable to your families preferences.  It can be fancy enough for Spring brunch or simple enough for a weeknight meal.  I now make 2 while I am cooking because my children enjoy this slightly different than the adults do plus the leftovers make great easy lunches.  

How to Make the Crust

This simple gluten free crust comes together in less than 10 minutes – no rolling or chilling required! All you need is almond flour, oat flour, salt, coconut oil or butter and water.

Mix the dry ingredients together, add the wet ingredients and mix until it forms a dough.  Then simply place the dough in the middle of your pan and press to fit the pan and partially up the sides.

This can be done in a cast iron or a regular pie pan.  It is super pretty in a tart pan as well!

Finally, prick with a fork and bake!  While it is baking I mix up the eggs in the same bowl I used to mix the crust to save on dishes.

This recipe is super adaptable.  As mentioned above my children don’t like when I add spinach, but I love the spinach so I tend to make 2 and save the leftovers for lunches.

Gluten Free Quiche Adaptations:

  • The spinach is optional, I recommend it my kids do not.  
  • If you have leftover bacon or turkey bacon or extra time to make some it makes a great addition and my kids love when I add some! Simply layer it on the bottom before adding the spinach and cheese
  • If you are in a rush you can make this as a crustless quiche as well. 
  • This can be made in a cast iron, pie pan or tart pan
  • If you are dairy free unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk works and you can either skip the cheese or use your favorite dairy free version
