Recipe Gluten Free Wheat Free Cheese Bacon Quiche & Cheesy Biscuits

Updated on April 19, 2012

This is a lovely gluten free cheesy bacon quiche.  It is good to eat both hot and cold, served with garlic butter new potatoes and salad.  This quiche is versatile as it can be frozen.  Using a cup cake baking tray can make a great buffet version.  This recipe makes a large quiche and can be eaten by celiac's.  This is a wheat free recipe.

The problem with gluten free recipes is that the flour does not have much elasticity.  Xanthan Gum helps with this problem.

What is Gluten?

Tip! Gluten Free / Wheat Free Flour Mix Recipe

I have included a gluten free wheat free flour mix here:

4 cups or 2Ib White Rice Flour

1 cup or 8 oz potato starch

1 cup or 8 oz tapioca starch

Store in an airtight container.  Now you have gluten free flour as and when you require it, but make sure you freeze it as this sort of flour deteriorates quickly.  This method keeps it fresh!

Ingredients

Pastry:

  • 200g or 8 oz gluten free and casein free flour with 1 tsp xanthan gum or 8 oz of shop bought gluten free and casein free plain flour – xanthan gum has already been added so no need to add more, but check that this is correct on the ingredients.  Take nothing for granted!
  • 50g or 2 oz of strong cheddar cheese
  • 100g or 4oz of butter or margarine
  • Half tsp of salt
  • Cold water to bind

Gluten Free Cheesy Biscuits

TIP:

You can use just the pastry recipe to make delicious cheesy biscuits!

Just pat out, cut and gently place on a greased baking tray!!

Filling:


  • 1 oz melted butter
  • 1 ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp dried chilli flakes (makes sure it is gluten free)
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 oz strong cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz cooked diced bacon
  • Sprinkle of Oregano (optional)

Gluten Free Pie Crust

Tip!

Why not use the pastry recipe as a gluten free pie crust?!

Method

Take the flour with the added xanthan gum and place in a bowl. Add the salt. Rub the butter into the flour lightly with your fingertips to make a breadcrumb consistency. Grate the cheese then add to the mixture. Add enough water to form a solid. There is no need to roll the pastry, just push it into place in the quiche dish.

Separately, melt the butter and add to the milk. Add the chilli pepper and salt. Beat the eggs then add to the mix.

Now, add the liquid to the prepared quiche dish. Place the bacon pieces into the liquid mixture, then grate the strong cheese and add to on top of the meat.

I add a sprinkle of oregano to the surface but this is optional.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 45 minutes on 350 degrees F.

Try hard not to touch the pastry - it has to be handled with care.  Score around the pastry of the quiche dish.  Have two plates ready.  Put one plate to cover.  Turn the quiche upside down.  Tease the quiche out. Place plate 2 over base of quiche.  Now the quiche is sandwiched between the two plates.  Turn the plates upside down again and now you have the quiche ready to serve.

Bon Appetite!

      Wrenfrost - many people have found that wheat makes them feel bloated and will try and gluten free diet to make them feel better. It seems that much food is stuffed with wheat, even when not necessary - many report that they are suffering with allergy. Im glad you liked itx
