Sunday brunch is a great tradition I love and this Gluten Free Kale Quiche is a perfect easy meal to make. A little prep work, and you can slide this into the oven for an easy meal.
We love egg dishes, and this Gluten Free Kale Quiche is a great way for me to sneak some extra veggies into the diet without anyone complaining. The mixture of cheeses, herbs and eggs in this is gourmet enough to use for a gathering with friends, but simple enough that your picky eaters aren’t going to be complaining.
There is very little prep work with this recipe. A bit of prepping the Kale, and perhaps slicing onions, but everything else just mixes up easily. One of he best things about this quiche is that you can mix everything up in one mixing bowl, and then pour into the tart or quiche pan and bake. It’s just super simple. With no crust, this makes a great Gluten Free menu item. If your family likes things a bit heartier, you can add in some chopped, cooked bacon or ham! Don’t forget to read your labels to be sure your bacon and ham are gluten-free as well if you are looking to stay gluten-free with this dish!

Bake this Kale Quiche for your breakfast, brunch or even to have as a great lunch or dinner item. If you are menu planning and using freezer meals, you can even make double batches of this and freeze for a quick meal to pop into the oven and reheat on busy days.
