Suggestions for savory baked goods?

I'm baking something for a friend. He prefers savory to sweet. I want to avoid biscuits, because I think they are best eaten when freshly baked. Ideas for savory baked goods that keep?

Some savory baked goodies: crackers, cheese straws (either the traditional or the stuff made with puff pastry), frico, shortbread (not too sweet, almost savory), grissini

Monita, do you think the quiche might "sweat" or get soggy? (Have I been doing it wrong?)

You could make a wonderful bread (could be a filled bread, like a pepperoni bread, or a nut bread. could be a challah or a rustic wheat bread. Or how about a leek and bacon pie? 9http://www.food52.com/recipes...) or a Tartiflette? Or a savory Fig and Onion tart?

I always enjoy baking Nigella Lawson's Blue Cheese Crackers. They are savory and really tasty!

This goat cheese biscotti is delicious, relatively easy to make and very impressive. The savory biscotti keep well in an air tight sealed container for up to a few weeks. I usually use Italian spices instead of the herbs de Provence in the recipe:

I made this savory shortbread the other day and it is absolutely delicious (particularly with the smoked salmon on top) http://www.marthastewart...

and this onion cheese pull apart bread is one of my absolute favorite recipes. While it is definitely divine straight out of the oven, it is good room temperature, and is very conducive to reheating - you could include instructions to stick the loaf back in the oven wrapped in foil for a few minutes to reheat. YUM http://www.foodandwine...

I realize its a biscuit but rosemary or lavender shortbread is fabulous this time of year, and not too sweet!

I don't think the quiche will get soggy or sweat if it's cooled completely before covering. Some quiches can even be frozen and the re-heated

I like to make gougeres for this kind of thing. They do lose a little of their crispness if you keep them in a tupperware, but they're still delicious. Also you can use any cheese and herbs you want, which is really fun. For an election night party I made them with sharp cheddar, crushed red pepper and a bit of cayenne and they tasted exactly like grown-up goldfish crackers.

How about biscotti? They can be made anywhere from sweet to savory. I've made them with dried pear and rosemary, cranberry and Chinese Five Spice powder and these:http://food52.com/recipes...
