Do you often feel like a short order cook between what you and your husband eat, and what your kids will eat? I feel your pain! I have a picky one, and over the years it has been hard to make just one family meal. Now that she is older, she knows how to make scrambled eggs for herself…but still, it was a lot of work to get nutrition into her!
I think this easy quiche recipe may be the answer. The secret is the special crust…it makes everything else taste amazing!
Do you remember those delicious “Cheese It” crackers from before we were gluten free? I haven’t seen anything remotely close to those crackers in the gluten free realm, until now. Lance makes the BEST ever Gluten Free Cheddar Cheese Crackers.

Lance Snacks makes a lot of delicious gluten free crackers that your whole family will love. Lance made gluten free versions of their most popular snack crackers. Do you remember Ritz Crackers? Lance has a gluten free version that tastes really close to that cracker.
They even make a gluten free version of my former favorites, peanut butter sandwich crackers and cheese sandwich crackers! They come in either snack packs so you can take them on the go easily, or a big box! (The pouches also work out perfectly for a healthier snack in your kids’ lunchboxes!
Lance Snack crackers use real peanut butter and cheese and have NO artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. They have no high fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils, so you can feel good about serving these crackers to your family.
These crackers are so good that I knew I had to create something special with these! In the past, I have made quiche and struck out with my picky eater. She has remained my “picky one” for years, and I really haven’t made quiche in that long.
I don’t know why I decided to try a quiche, but I am so glad I did. It must be the cheese crackers, but both of my kids devoured this gluten free quiche recipe. The hero of this easy quiche recipe is the Lance Gluten Free Cheese Crackers. These gluten free crackers make the best gluten free pie crust ever.
I wanted to make a short video to show you how easy this gluten free sausage quiche is to make. (And let your kids smash the Lance Snacks crackers. It is so much fun for them!)
What is Quiche?
One of my favorite ways to describe a quiche is to think of an egg bake or an eggier soufflé. It is usually baked open in a pie tin, without a top crust. A quiche can be filled with anything from seafood and/or meat, to vegetables and cheese. You can pick anything to go in the quiche. (I like to pick my kids’ favorite vegetables to make it easy.)
(You could make a quiche without a crust, but why do that when you have these gluten free cheese crackers?)
