Broccoli sausage quiche with oatmeal almond flour crust – perfect for dinner, brunch or lunch! The quiche crust is made with oat flour and almond flour, making it naturally gluten free. The crust also comes together super quickly and simply in a bowl (no food processor required). Gather your favorite breakfast sausage, broccoli and even frozen spinach for more veggie power and let’s go make quiche together!
Personally I love to eat quiche at room temperature, which makes the life of being a cook easier. Not worrying about having dinner done right on time and coming out hot – count me in. You can make quiche in advance and have it ready and waiting for you!
Making brunch for a big bunch? Prep a couple of quiches plus a fruit salad and you’re set! Both can be made in advance which is my favorite when I’m entertaining. I’d rather cook ahead then enjoy the gathering with less stress. You?
In this particular quiche recipe we are using breakfast sausage, broccoli and frozen spinach. The beauty of quiche is that you can substitute SO easily.
It’s the perfect way to use up bits of leftover veggies in your fridge. Or even whatever breakfast meats you have on hand. Don’t have or want meat? No problem! Seriously, modify with what you’ve got and your preferences.
Oatmeal almond flour crust
This crust is probably one of my favorite parts. Oat flour and almond flour are two of my favorite flours to bake with. I love the combo of them together. Almond flour alone can turn pretty dense. Add oat flour and it lightens up the crust + gives it such a yummy flavor!
To make the crust you simply mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, then press it into the dish! I’m a huge fan of using a 9″ tart pan because the sides remove from the bottom, making it super simple to get the entire quiche out of the pan. But I also love my polish pottery quiche pans, so I use both!
How to make quiche
Quiche is a pretty straight forward dish to make.
- Start by making your crust, and par baking it (that means to bake it just a touch so it’s semi cooked)
- While the crust bakes, prep your meat/veggies and egg mixture
- Once the crust is out of the oven, put the meat/veggie in the crust and pour the egg mixture over.
- Bake until set the eggs are set and your quiche is done!
Sold on it like me? I hope so! I’ve made quiche as a before baby arrives food and one question you may be thinking is…
Can you freeze quiche?
YES! Quiche freezes beautifully. You can freeze a fully cooked quiche after it’s cooled. Simply cool it, wrap it so it’s air tight, label and date it and freeze it for up to 3 months.
You can also freeze an unbaked quiche. Prepare the quiche up until the final baking step. Once the filling is in the crust, freeze the quiche uncovered. When the quiche is fully frozen, take it out of the freezer, wrap it so it’s air tight, label and date it and freeze it for up to 3 months.
How to defrost a frozen quiche
If you are removing a fully cooked quiche from the freezer, place it in the fridge the night before you want to eat it. You’ll wake up with a defrosted quiche then simply warm pieces in the oven or microwave.
If you are defrosting an uncooked quiche, remove it from the freezer the night before. The next day, the quiche should look giggly because you have uncooked filling. Bake the quiche in the oven for the prescribed amount of time. The quiche may take a little bit longer because it will be coming from a cold environment, or may still be partially frozen. Keep an eye on it.
