Gluten Free Tomato Basil Caramelized Onion Quiche

In my quest to make more gluten free meals, I tried my hand at making a gluten free pie crust with the Now Foods Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour . This crust could be used for pies, tarts and quiches. We try to have some sort of “breakfast for dinner” at least a few times a month. It’s easy and I then have lots of leftovers for breakfast the rest of the week because pancakes, waffles, french toast and even egg bakes are easy to freeze in individual servings.Gluten Free Quiche logo

This quiche recipe just reminds me of summer. Fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden with that hint of sweet onion and garlic, so yummy! You could even add some bacon to kick it up a notch. One thing about egg bakes or quiches is that you can fill it with pretty much any sort of vegetable and cheese that you would like. Below is my recipe for Gluten Free Tomato Basil Caramelized Onion Quiche.

Instructions

  2. cut COLD butter into small cubes add to dry ingredients and with your hands start blend the butter with the flour mixture until it looks a bit like sand.
  3. Add the milk, cream and egg
  4. Blend well until it has formed into a dough
  5. wrap or place dough in a container and let sit into the fridge for 2 hrs
  6. When you are ready to use the dough take out of the fridge and place on a flat surface with more gluten free flour so the dough doesn't stick
  7. roll out so that its big enough to fit your pie pan and cut off extra edges if necessary
  8. Quiche Instructions
  9. In a large bowl add eggs, cream and milk mix well with a whisk
  10. Caramelize the onions in a small saute pan with olive oil, salt/pepper and garlic (add garlic about 1 minute before you are done cooking the onions
  11. Once the onions are done and cooled a bit add them to the egg mixture along with the basil, tomatoes, crushed red pepper and salt/pepper to taste.
  12. Add 1 cup mozzarella cheese and stir together
  13. Add egg mixture to the gluten free crust
  14. bake at 400 for 10 minutes then turn the heat down to 350 and bake for another 40 minutes - check after 30 minutes to see if the crust is browning too much, you can gently lay foil over the top to keep the crust from burning.
  15. minutes before the quiche is finished take out of the oven and add that last cup of cheese then place back in the oven to finish cooking.

*NOTE: The pie crust made enough for 2 pies, you can freeze the extra for another quiche or pie.
