Easy Recipe for Vegetarian Quiche

Updated on September 14, 2014

Whip Up an Easy Vegetarian Quiche in No Time

I like quiche for any meal, and this easy recipe for vegetarian quiche lets me make it with what I have on hand.

The trick is to keep some frozen pie crusts on hand and the rest of this quiche recipe is a snap! I like to use whatever vegetables I have on hand, but I always make sure I have plenty for variety.

Another main ingredient is cheese, which makes just about anything more delicious!

Quiche Pans

You don't have to use a quiche pan to bake a quiche, but they're really nice and make a great presentation to serve to family and guests.

Real Men Don't Eat Quiche... or Do They?

Quiche Cookbooks on eBay

These cookbooks are full of ideas on how to make quiche. Never run out of ways to jazz up eggs again.

Eggs are an economical and healthy food that when made into quiche is a great way to add vegetables to your diet as well.

Make Individual Quiches - Fancy That!

Making individual quiches is a lovely way to serve quiche to guests. Each person can request their quiche ingredients so this is a great way to serve a delicious breakfast to picky eaters.

Just be sure to bake them for less time than the big quiche pan version since they're small.

Pie Shields to Protect Your Crust - Don't Eat Burnt Crust

I really hate burnt pie crust (or quiche crust). Prevent this common problem with a pie shield. Just set on top of the crust before baking and your crust won't burn. Remove about 10 minutes before the quiche is done for a browner crust.
