FAQ About Quiche
Quiche can be frozen, either prior to or after baking although the latter is easiest. Allow it to come to room temperature. Keep it in the pan it was baked in, then wrap with plastic wrap, then aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 4 months.
Quiche can be reheated. Reheat in a 350-degree F oven for 15 minutes, or until heated through. Alternatively, microwave for 2 minutes, or until heated through.
As long as it has been fully cooked through, cold quiche is safe to eat. You will not get the buttery flavor and creamy texture that comes with warm quiche, but it is safe to eat it cold the next day.
What To Serve With Quiche – Perfect Side Dishes
- Salad – A simple green salad with balsamic vinaigrette or Greek salad accompanies quiche perfectly, but also consider serving a savory pasta salad.
- Fresh fruit – It is a great idea to cut or slice any type of fresh fruit to serve alongside quiche, such as strawberries, watermelon, grapes, blueberries or cantaloupe.
- Vegetables – Freshly cut vegetables such as carrots, celery or cucumbers make a great pair with an egg bake. Also consider roasting broccoli, carrots and cauliflower for an extra punch of flavor. Steamed asparagus spears or green beans are great options, as well!
- Bread or muffins – Freshly baked bread goes with everything, right? Really, any variety of soft or crusty bread would be a great complement, as well as blueberry or any other type of muffins.
- Soup – Baked eggs with vegetables hiding inside somehow just go so well with a warm bowl of soup. Classic tomato soup, broccoli cheese soup and mushroom soup are all delicious options!
