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 it has been hard to make just one family meal over the years.

I haven’t seen anything remotely close to those crackers in the gluten free realm until now. Lance makes delicious Gluten Free Cheddar Cheese Crackers. These crackers make the very best gluten free crust for a quiche.

Why I love this gluten free quiche:

You won’t believe how easy it is to make this easy gluten-free pie crust for your quiche! There is no need to make pie crust dough when you can use these crackers! However, if you want to make a flaky pie crust, use this Gluten Free Pie Crust Recipe.

This recipe also makes a delicious gluten free quiche base. You can freeze it and use it to make quiche any time!

Although I used scallions, tomatoes, cheese, and sausage in my quiche, you can use any fillings you like. Bacon, broccoli, anything your kids will eat! The flavors all work with these cheese crackers. Then bake.

Thank you for reminding me how good and versatile quiche is! And those Lance crackers must be a Godsend for gf people. Fun Fact: I grew up in Charlotte, NC, where Lance is headquartered!

Ingredient Notes:

For the full list of ingredients and amounts, please go to the recipe card below.

  • Gluten Free Crackers – I used Lance Cheese Crackers because they are so good and add flavor to this quiche recipe. You can also use Lance Plain Crackers (similar to Ritz crackers) or use my Gluten Free Cheez-Its recipe to make homemade cheese crackers.
  • Milk – Use whole, 2%, evaporated milk, or no-fat milk. You can also use dairy-free milk.
  • Cheese – Use regular shredded cheddar. If you are dairy-free, VioLife and Daiya also make good non-dairy cheese.
  • Eggs – Size large. If you have small eggs, add one extra.
  • Vegetables – Use any vegetables you like.
  • Sausage – I used Aidells chicken sausage because it is pre-cooked and gluten free. Many brands of sausage are gluten free that you can use. If you don’t use a pre-cooked brand, cook the sausage before adding it to the quiche.

Step-By-Step Photos and Directions:

Quiche steps 1 and 2 photos.

Step 1: Put the crackers in a large zipper bag. Use a rolling pin or the bottom of a coffee mug to smush them into crumbs. You can also crush them up in a food processor.

Step 2: Add the eggs, evaporated milk, and seasonings to a bowl and use a wire whisk to blend the wet ingredients together.

Quiche steps 3 and 4 photos.

Step 3: Pour your cracker crumbs into a bowl and add the melted butter and the shredded cheese. Mix well to form a sticky dough.

Step 4: Add egg and mix well to form the crust.

Quiche steps 5 and 6 photos.

Step 5: Pour the crust mixture into a greased pie tin and press down to mold the crust to the tin.

Step 6: Add the sausage onto the crust.

Quiche steps 7 and 8 photos.

Step 7: Add the tomatoes. Spread the fillings around the quiche crust so they are evenly distributed.

Step 8: Pour the egg mixture over the quiche toppings.

Quiche steps 9 and 10 photos.

Step 9: Add the rest of the vegetables.

Step 10: The quiche is ready to bake! Bake at 375º F for 30 minutes. You will know the quiche is done when the egg is solid and there is a slight golden color on top of the quiche. The quiche is ready to slice and serve hot.

For this recipe, you can use almond milk, soy milk, or any other milk you can tolerate. 

Making mini gluten-free quiches is perfect for single servings and gives a fantastic presentation, too. Follow the directions to make the full-size breakfast quiche, but use a muffin tin instead of a full-sized pan.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Quiche can be eaten hot or cold. For breakfast, brunch, or any meal.
  • Quiche Lorraine is probably one of the most well-known quiche flavors to make.
  • You could make a quiche without a crust, but why do that when you have these gluten free cheese crackers?
  • Yes, real men do eat quiche!! Just ask Mr. Fearless Dining!
Can you make this dairy-free?

You can make this quiche dairy-free by using dairy-free butter, milk, and cheese in this recipe. You will also need to use Lance plain flavored gluten free crackers.

How do you know when the quiche is done baking?

The easiest way to know if the quiche is done is to look at it and see if the eggs look raw. If they jiggle or move around easily when you shake it lightly, then it will need to cook for a few more minutes.

Another way to tell if the gluten free breakfast quiche is done is by inserting a toothpick in the center. If the toothpick comes out clean and free of eggs, then it is ready.

Why did my quiche turn out runny?

If your quiche turned out runny, you used too much milk and not enough eggs.

How long will this quiche keep fresh?

This quiche will stay in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.

Can I freeze quiche?

Yes, you can freeze this quiche recipe. Place the quiche casserole into an air-tight container and freeze. When you are ready to eat, just remove from the freezer and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 350º F. Make sure it has been heated all the way through before consuming it.

Can you make this crustless?

I love making gluten free crustless quiche as well. You can certainly skip using a crust if you want to have this be low-carb. I recommend spraying the pan with a non-stick cooking spray so the crustless quiche doesn’t stick.

  • Spinach – Add extra nutrients while enhancing the flavor.
  • Onions – Grilled or fresh onions go perfectly with eggs.
  • Mushrooms – Add an amazing earthy flavor.
  • Peppers – The texture and extra flavor of the peppers are really good.
  • Ham – A very common ingredient for egg dishes, and it makes sense because it is delicious.
  • Bacon – Adding bacon makes it even heartier and adds saltiness.
  • Parmesan – When you sprinkle some parmesan on top, it is next-level good.
  • Sweet Potatoes – Adds sweetness to the mouthwateringly delicious quiche.

Delicious Sides:

This gluten free quiche recipe makes a beautiful brunch dish! If you are hosting a brunch and are looking for some food ideas to present with this delicious quiche, here are some ideas:

  • Hash browns – they are a breakfast and lunch favorite. They pair nicely with the sausage quiche.

  1. You can break up the crackers for this crust via a food processor or put them in a large ziplock baggie and smash them up!
  2. You could make a quiche without a crust, but why do that when you have these gluten free cheese crackers?
  3. To make this gluten free quiche gluten free, use dairy-free milk, butter, and cheese. I really like VioLife and Daiya brands of dairy-free cheese.
  4. Use a pre-cooked gluten free sausage like Aidells or Johnsonville.
  5. This quiche will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.


Please know that every gluten free flour blend has a different starch to grain ratio. If you use a blend I didn’t test, you may need to adjust your moisture levels in your baked goods.

  1. Hi there,
    I was wondering if you put this in the fridge any length of time will the crackers become soft?


    1. Hi K, for clarification, do you mean before or after baking? After baking, it will soften a bit, but if you reheat it in the oven vs microwave, it will crisp a bit back up.

  2. Thank you for reminding me how good and versatile quiche is! And those Lance crackers must be a Godsend for gf people. Fun Fact: I grew up in Charlotte, NC, where Lance is headquartered! =)

    1. You are so welcome. It is a great way to use up those “about to go bad” veggies in the back of the refrigerator!

      1. Has anyone bought those cheese crackers in Australia I haven’t seen them or any ideas what works in a different cracker I can use for the base please
