Savory Gluten-Free Spinach Quiche is made with a delicious savory gluten-free shortcrust recipe, adapted from a recipe by Master Baker Avner Laskin. This is a terrific and, believe it or not, easy gluten-free recipe for special occasion brunches.

Ingredients

  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 (8- or 9-inch) prebaked gluten-free savory shortcrust

  • 6 ounces grated Swiss cheese, or Emmenthal cheese, divided

  • 8 ounces fresh spinach leaves, rinsed and dried, divided

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients. Preheat the oven to 375 F (190 C).

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk eggs, cream, salt, and nutmeg.

  3. Sprinkle half of the cheese in the bottom of the prebaked crust shell.

  4. Scatter half of the spinach leaves over the cheese. Pour about 3/4 of the egg mixture over the spinach.

  5. Sprinkle the remaining cheese and spinach into the crushed shell and top with the remaining egg mixture.

  6. Place the quiche pan on a large baking sheet to prevent dripping and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until the filling is set and the top is golden. Serve warm.
