Gluten Free Crustless Mini Quiche

We had a mini gluten free guest at Immy’s recent mermaid party (more on that soon I promise) and I wanted to be sure that there was a selection of party food that she could enjoy when it came time to eat. These crustless mini quiches were quick and easy to whip up and could be easily adapted to include whichever flavours you prefer. In fact, this would be a great recipe for involving kids in the kitchen too.

You will need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/8 cup + 1 Tablespoon gluten free flour
  • 1/2 cup cheese*
  • Your choice of fillings* – we stuck with ham and cheese because these were for the kids but you could add a combination of any of the following: lightly sauted leek, chopped tomato, fresh or tinned corn, spinach, feta, bacon, smoked salmon, mushroom. You’ll need about 1/3 a cup of your filling.

To make:

1. Preheat oven to 180C.

2. Break eggs into a bowl, add milk and lightly whisk with a fork.

3. Add the flour, cheese and your chosen filling and mix until well combined.

4. Grease your mini muffin tin.

5. Spoon mixture into a mini muffin tin, filling each about 2/3rds full.

6. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until set and lightly browned.

Enjoy!

*Please take time to check that all ingredients are actually gluten free and ask the affected person or their family for advice if you are at all unsure.

  1. Anyone making this for a coeliac or someone who is truly gluten sensitive please double check ALL ingredients ie not all ham is GF, some tinned corn may have thickeners in it that are derived from gluten etc even some pre grated cheese can at times have wheat in it I know hard to believe but I think added to the packets to stop it sticking together. Just read all ingredients and if not sure ask the family/person who needs to avoid gluten. Also need to be mindful of cross contamination ie crumbs getting into things, using same knife/cutting board etc. Sounds picky I know but lots of coeliacs are that sensitive that they can not tolerate this minute amount. Some are willing to ‘take risks’ and others are not. Some get quite full on short term symptoms (pain, bloating, gut probs, catch everything going around due to inability to absorb nutrients due to damage to the villi in the intestines) and ALL are effected long term if they continue to consume gluten. and its not minor effects – we are talking increased risk of bowel cancer, fertility issues, immunity issues etc. Kudos to Christie and all others keen to cater for those who cant eat gluten (my 7 yo is a coeliac and I love it when someone friends and family go out of their way to include her/meet her needs with a GF meal) but can all be aware that there are some common traps and “hidden gluten” to look out for.

    • Thank you, Michele, I had meant to say something about the other ingredients in the post and then had gotten distracted, it was actually the packet of ham that I used that made me think about it as it was marked as gluten free and I was like, “What?!?!” I am going to make a note in the post now :)

  2. Looks delish! I was going to say something similar about the ham, most deli meats are avoided by GF people because there is usually hidden gluten.

  3. Thanks for this recipe Christie!
    My mum is a Celiac so I will make this for her :)

  4. Perfect! I was just going to look up crustless quiche for lunchboxes but thought I would just catch up on blog posts first. And look what I found!
    Thanks for reading my mind. :)

  5. so glad you included this in your lunchbox alternatives to sandwiches – i have been meaning to try crustless quiches with the kids for ages but kept forgetting to look up a recipe – too easy. on the list for tomorrow thanks
