Quiche Recipes to Make Ahead and Freeze

Crab Quiche Recipe to Make Ahead and Freeze

There is nothing easier than pulling a quiche out of the freezer and having it for breakfast or brunch. A quiche recipe freezes well and is easy to prepare. Just defrost and pour into a pie shell. These variations were enjoyed by the guests at our store. But, other variations can be enjoyed by using the egg to milk ratio and altering the meat and other ingredients. What type of quiche is in your freezer?

      Hi Dinnermom! I love quiche but I usually end up burning the crust or not cooking the filling well enough.Do you think its could have something to do with the pan I'm using?

      What pan would you recommend to cook quiche in..I usually use a heavy ceramic dish.

      Hi! I must admit that I use a ready made pie crust in a tin. But, I run into that problem too; try tenting the quiche with aluminum foil once it has browned to your liking.

      I don't make quiche all that often. And it's probably because it is so time-consuming. But you're right -- next time, I should just make two and freeze one of them to enjoy later without any work at all. ;)

      I love keeping some quiche in the freezer for a quick dinner. The handy print and cut directions you included make it easy to pass along a "freezer quiche" to a friend. Thanks for the recipes and ideas.

      Thanks for your comment. I don't think you can make quiche without egg. We have this allergy in my family we focus on all the other wonderful dishes we can enjoy!
