What is a Quiche?
- Quiche is a French tart consisting of a pastry crust filled with savory custard-like filling made with cheeses, meat, or vegetables.
- And it can be served hot, cold, or at a warm temperature.
- Quiches are so versatile and perfect to serve anytime. Brunch, lunch, and even meatless dinners are just some of the countless ways to serve them.
If you’re having guests staying with you, quiches can be a lifesaver! And they are one of the easiest meals you can make ahead, freeze and reheat when you need one.
How to Make our Mushroom and Sundried Tomato Quiche?
This recipe is an easy 3-step process.
1. First, you will need to cook the vegetables. Simply sauté the onions, garlic, and mushrooms in a skillet, then add in seasonings and sundried tomatoes and set it aside to cool.
2. Second, combine the rest of the ingredients. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, then add in the cream and cheeses. Next, stir in the mushroom mixture to combine it all together.
3. Finally, pour the entire mixture into the pie crust and bake.
Cook’s Notes and Tips!
- No need to bake or thaw the pie crust before you pour the ingredients into it. It’s better if it is still slightly frozen before it bakes. This will ensure baking the quiche evenly without burning the crust.
- You can make this quiche ahead, bake it and freeze it! Then allow it to fully thaw before reheating it. Perfect!
- The quiche will inflate while it’s baking like a soufflé, but it will quickly deflate when it comes out of the oven and cools down.
Questions and Answers…
- Do you bake the pie crust first when making a quiche? You don’t necessarily have to, but if you prefer a crispy crust on the bottom, then you can bake it for a few minutes before filling it.
- What can I substitute for half and half in a quiche? One swap is heavy cream, or you can use whole milk with a little corn starch added to thicken it.
- Can we make this quiche dairy-free or vegan? If you‘re looking for a vegan or dairy-free heavy cream substitute, you can use coconut cream.
- Is it better to freeze quiche baked or unbaked? It’s best to bake the quiche before freezing it. Then allow it to cool completely before covering it with aluminum foil and freezing. It freezes well for up to one month.
- How do you reheat a prebaked quiche? Allow the quiche to thaw for about 1 hour on your counter. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F (180C) and cover with a sheet of aluminum foil and place it in the center of your oven. Bake for about 10 to 15 minutes, or longer if you need to.
- What goes well in quiche? Quiches are usually served with a side of crisp green salad and a bowl of seasonal fruit.
