Recipe: Spring Vegetable Quiche

I love quiche - it's the perfect Sunday food! You can make a quiche on a Sunday morning - have a slice or two for brunch and then you have leftovers for breakfast all week! 

The best thing about it is that you can use whatever vegetables are in season - you can literally put anything in a quiche and it's delicious! But this time - I made a nice spring veggie quiche! 

How to make quiche

Quiche seems fancy but is really easy to make. Start with a pie crust - I typically use a frozen crust. Then lightly saute your favorite vegetables - in this quiche I used asparagus, mushrooms and zucchini. Into the pie crust, add your favorite protein (I used ham - but sausage or bacon are always great), sauteed vegetables and some cheese. Then you mix together eggs, cream and salt & pepper - pour in the pie crust and you're done! Bake for 40-45 minutes and voila. 

Can quiche be frozen?

Yes! You can freeze before you bake by mixing the filling and freezing it in a ziploc or plastic container. I prefer to freeze after baking. I'll slice it up and put it in freezer safe containers. 

How to reheat quiche? 

I prefer to reheat quiche in either my air fryer or toaster oven. It takes about 2-3 minutes per slice. You can always use the microwave but the pie crust gets a little soggy. 

What to have with quiche? 

Quiche is pretty much a meal on it's own - but a nice fruit salad always pairs well with it. Or you can make up a quick dip for fresh fruit you already have (strawberries are perfect right now)!
