This gluten free Ham and Cheese Quiche is perfect for brunch but is hearty enough for dinner. Full of ham, bacon and cheese, it’s a protein packed meal full of smoky flavor – a sure crowd pleaser.


  • 1 9-inch gluten free pie crust, par baked* (or regular pie crust)
  • 1 cup Cure 81 ham, diced (or leftover ham)
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon gluten free flour (or regular if not making gluten free)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add the diced ham and bacon to the par-baked pie crust, spreading evenly across the bottom.
  3. In a small bowl, toss together the cheese and flour so the cheese is coated and sprinkle over the meat in the pie crust.
  4. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, milk and pepper. Pour over the meat/cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 35-50 minutes. When done, the middle will still be slightly jiggly, which is ok. It will set up as it sits. Let the quiche sit for 15-20 minutes before slicing and serving.


Recipe Notes

  1. * Directions for my par-baked crust can be found here in the Coconut Cream Pie recipe directions.
  2. Baking times can vary greatly depending on your oven. I just got a new oven with a convection option and it took 40 minutes and I probably could have taken it out 5 minutes sooner. In my old oven, it took a full 55 minutes.
  3. I usually add a salt to my eggs when cooking but I purposely left salt out of this recipe. I find that using the salty ham and salty bacon is enough to season the whole quiche. Feel free to add a pinch of salt if you prefer.
  4. If you love this ham and cheese quiche, be sure to try my Bacon and Swiss Quiche - that one is my all-time favorite!
