Here’s How to Make Gluten-Free Quiche:

*Detailed & printable recipe card at the bottom of the post

Mix shredded hashbrowns with olive oil, ghee, and garlic salt. Press into your baking dish. Pro tip: if you want to use a pie plate, spray it liberally with cooking spray or brush with ghee.

If using a cast iron skillet, preheat it in the oven for a few minutes and then brush with ghee. Bake hashbrown crust at 425 degrees for 30 minutes.

Add your veggies and (cooked) meat if using.

Mix your eggs, dill, and milk and carefully pour into the hash brown crust. Some egg will likely leak through the crust and into the baking dish. That’s fine. I mean, who are you, Martha-freaking Stewart? This thing is going to be amazing and delicious…who gives a hoot about a little leaked egg? Not this girl.

Lightly cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the egg is set in the middle (about 20 minutes).

Pro Tips/Recipe Notes

  • If you consume dairy, feel free to sub in half-and-half or whole milk for the Nutpods.
  • To make this recipe 100% dairy-free, use all olive oil in the crust instead of the ghee.
  • If you consume dairy and want to add cheese, I would add two slices of swiss on top of the baked crust, pour in the egg mixture, and then add 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar once you take the foil off while baking.
  • You can serve this quiche either cold or hot. It reheats really well so if you want this to be a meal prep dish, bake it in a pie plate (keep cast iron out of the fridge). Reheat covered with foil at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or microwave for 1 minute.
  • If you have leftover frozen broccoli, you’ll love making some Roasted Frozen Broccoli later in the week for a fast and delicious side dish.
  • Frozen spinach will work great too! Learn how to freeze spinach in this post.

Variations

  • You’re welcome to add whatever vegetables you’d like. If the veggies have a high water content (zucchini, etc.) I would saute them ahead of time to keep everything from getting soupy.
  • Cook down sliced onions in ghee for a caramelized onion quiche.
  • Use any leftover artichoke hearts to make Fried Artichoke Hearts in the air fryer.

Gluten-Free Quiche is delicious for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups frozen hashbrowns
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp ghee {+more for coating baking dish}
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup non-dairy milk {like Nut Pods}
  • 1/4 tsp dill
  • 1 cup broccoli {chopped}
  • 1 cup spinach {roughly chopped}
  • 1/3 cup artichoke hearts {drained if using frozen or canned}
  • 1 cup ham or other cooked meat of choice

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425 F.
  • Use a 9 inch pie plate or a 10 inch cast iron skillet.
  • Use ghee or olive oil to coat your baking dish, including the sides.
  • Thaw frozen hashbrowns in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  • Mix potatoes with ghee, olive oil and garlic salt. Press into your baking dish.
  • Bake crust at 425 degrees F for 30 minutes.
  • Add broccoli, spinach, and artichoke hearts, and (cooked) meat if using.
  • Mix eggs, dill, and milk and carefully pour into the hash brown crust.
  • Lightly cover baking dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the foil and bake until the egg is set in the middle (~20 minutes).

Notes

If using a cast-iron skillet, preheat in the oven for 5 minutes and then grease liberally with ghee or olive oil before pressing the hashbrowns in.
 
To use Fresh potatoes: Peel and grate your potatoes with a box grater or a food processor with a shredder disk attachment. Place in a strainer and rinse with cold water until the water runs clear. Squeeze to remove excess water. Place on a clean kitchen towel and cover with another towel. Press to remove excess moisture (I use a cast iron skillet to press the extra moisture out).

  1. We made this last night and it was a hit! My husband came home and thought the house smelled amazing. We really enjoyed the hash brown crust! I subbed in different veggies with whatever we had in the fridge and it still turned out amazing. Another favorite for us!

  2. Tried this out tonight and it was great. Our version had mushroom, ham, onion and cheese as that is what I had on hand in the fridge. We have enough left over for supper tomorrow night as well so that is a huge bonus. Thanks!

  3. This sounds amazing! I’ll be making this very soon!

  4. Ghee is lactose free, but not dairy free.

    • Hi Jessica, you can use all olive oil in the crust if you need it 100% dairy-free. Thanks for pointing that out as I have updated the post to make that point more clear.

  5. Great idea! Love that crust.

  6. This looks delicious!! 😋

  7. This looks super good (and might I saw, tomato herb styling is on point 👌). I love the idea of the hashbrown crust for a gluten-free option, and how tasty and versatile the recipe is. I’d make a vegetarian version, of course, but love the inspiration!
