If you’re following a gluten free diet, making a quiche can be a challenge. Gluten free pie dough just isn’t the same. I recommend not even going through the hassle of trying to create a gluten free pie dough that, let’s be honest, in the end just isn’t going to turn out as good as the real thing.
Instead, I recommend using alternative foods as your “crust.” A few months ago I made a Cheesy Kale Quiche with rice as the crust base. It was delicious! After looking through Pinterest, I found an interesting gluten free quiche crust idea… hash browns! After all, what goes better with eggs, cheese and veggies than hash browns?!? It seemed like the perfect gluten free pie crust substitute!
I made this quiche recipe for our Yom Kippur break-fast dinner and everyone loved it! In fact, I made two to feed the crowd, but it wasn’t enough. It went fast and I wish I had made three or four quiche! This morning, my husband asked me if I’d make the quiche again so he could eat it for breakfast. I’d say this recipe is a real winner!
So if you want a super easy, delicious and fun quiche recipe using hash browns as your crust, follow this quick and easy recipe. It’s gluten free, good for you, and requires very little cooking/baking skills. Definitely A+ in my book!
