Gluten-Free Tips & A Quiche Recipe

Next Monday we are heading to Disney World. While I pack and get us all ready to go, I have some great guest posts lined up. Next week will be a few more guest posts, along with posts on dining at Walt Disney World.

The following is a guest post from Linda, The Gluten-Free Homemaker.

Do you know someone who is on a gluten-free diet?  Have you ever thought you’d like to have them over for a meal, but didn’t know what to feed them?  These days many people are eating gluten free for various reasons.  Some have celiac disease, some are gluten intolerant, and others use it to help a child with an autism spectrum disorder.  Chances are you know one of those people, and the good news it that they are not really that difficult to feed.

Fresh fruits, vegetables, and plain unprocessed meats are all gluten free.  Milk, eggs, and rice are also gluten free.  Plain herbs and spices with a single ingredient are gluten free.  That means you can make a simple but delicious dinner by roasting a whole chicken or beef and serving it with potatoes or rice and vegetables.  Fruit can be served for dessert.  If you want something a little different, though, quiche is a dish that can be served at any meal.  This recipe is crustless, and instead of flour it uses corn starch—something you probably have in your cabinet.

When preparing the food be aware that some people cannot tolerate even a little bit of gluten such as would be found in a crumb of wheat bread.  Be sure your work surfaces, utensils, and baking dishes are clean.  You should use a new jar of mayonnaise when making the recipe below.  If someone spread mayo on their sandwich bread then dipped back into the jar, it could contain crumbs.


Gluten-Free Crustless Quiche

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 c. mayonnaise (Kraft & Hellmann’s are gluten free)
  • 1 c. milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 Tb. cornstarch
  • salt & pepper
  • 3 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Brown the meat and cook the onion in a skillet. Drain any fat. Using a whisk, combine the mayonnaise, milk, eggs, cornstarch, and salt and pepper (to taste) in a large bowl. Stir in the cheese, beef and onions. Pour into two greased 10 inch pie plates. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.

About Linda:

I’m a wife and homeschooling mother of three teenage boys.  In 2000 I was diagnosed with celiac disease which propelled me into the world of gluten free cooking a baking.  I have learned that gluten free can be delicious and my family will attest to that.  Therefore, I never apologize for serving gluten free food. Through my blog I enjoy helping others who are new to the gluten-free diet and those who have been at it for a while but are looking for new inspiration. Stop by The Gluten-Free Homemaker for more tips, recipes and inspiration.

  4. Great recipe!

    My daughter has been gluten free for 3 years (since she was 18 months old) I make quiches all the time using hash browns as the crust.

    1. Preheat oven to 425
    2. Squeeze hash browns between paper towels to remove moisture. Press onto bottom and up the sides of a pie plate to form crust (I use a 9inch one)
    3. Drizzle melted butter over the crust and bake for 25 minutes.

    Then add your favorite quiche mixture and bake according to the quiche directions.

  5. My son is autistic and finding food that he can enjoy during the holidays has always been a nightmare. After a recommendation from someone in one of my support groups, I found out about a Nutrition Coach named Rose Cole, I went to her site and found loads of great gluten free recipes. Please make sure to check it out!

  6. I worry about finding tasty gluten free recipes as gluten has been linked to autism and I prefer to just avoid it all together. I’ve tried tons of different recipes and expensive “organic foods” from the stores but I recently came across this website . Rose Cole who is the nutritionist behind the site puts up all these great gluten free recipes in her Holiday Cookbook that are easy and affordable. I think I’m actually looking forward to cooking on the holidays for once. Lol
