Great Friends Great Quiche!

Spending time with good friends is priceless and I cherish every moment I get to spend with quality people eating quality food!  Brunch the other day brought some good friends together not only for me but also for my boys...time with the ladies while the boys had a playdate always works in our favor!   So a nice grain free quiche was in order.  I've been making this quiche for years!  This is a recipe that I morphed from one of my very very first "Gluten-Free Baking" books that my mother-in-law bought me over 15 years ago by Rebecca Reilly.  Its still a go-to book for me especially around my kids birthdays.  I realized when the ladies all asked me for the recipe that I had actually never blogged it so it is about time.  The crust is from one of my other recipes, the Paleo Raspberry Streusel Bars minus the almond extract.  I hope you try this one out this summer and enjoy!

Savory Grain-Free Quiche Lorraine
Crust Ingredients:
2 cups of almond flour
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon water

Pulse ingredients together in a food processor until well mixed
Place mixture into lightly greased pie dish and press down with fingers to flatten and press up the sides.  It will not make it all the way up the sides and that is ok.
Bake crust at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Quiche Filling Ingredients:
5 eggs, lightly beaten
2 cups of heavy cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (the secret yummy ingredient!!)
Pinch of ground black pepper
3 slices of cooked bacon
1/4 cup chopped ham
1/2 cup favorite cheese of choice (I used a grass fed cheddar cheese from Trader Joes)
Large bunch of spinach chopped and sautéd in bacon grease (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Whisk together the eggs, cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg
Chop the bacon, ham and spinach and scatter over the bottom of pie crust
Sprinkle cheese on top
Pour the egg mixture(custard) over the cheese
Bake for 15 minutes on middle rack then lower oven temp to 375 degrees
Bake an another 30 minutes until custard is set
Let cool slightly before serving
