Learn how to reheat quiche and also how to freeze quiche successfully using these methods and tips. This is essential if you are making them for a brunch party. (You can find the recipe for the quiche pictured here.)
One of my readers, Pauline, wrote in with the following question:
“I need to make several quiches for a church brunch. I plan to assemble and bake them the day/evening before and reheat them prior to serving at 11:00 a.m. the next morning. What is the best method (temperature – time – covered or uncovered?) for reheating a ‘basic’ quiche?”
Here was my response:
How to Reheat A Cooked Quiche In The Oven
After you have baked each of the quiches (no more than a few days ahead), let them cool completely on the counter uncovered. Cover them with plastic wrap and refrigerate.
When you are ready to re-heat the quiche, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Remove the plastic wrap and place the quiche in the oven in its original pan for about 15 -20 minutes or until the center is warmed through.
If you are going to place more than one in the oven at a time, figure additional re-heating time in before you need to serve them.
A thermometer works well to tell if they are heated through. Try to get the internal temperature to about 165 degrees F.
Serve the quiche immediately. It will not keep very long after it has been re-heated.
Can You Reheat Quiche In The Microwave?
A microwave oven is not recommended for reheating am entire quiche as the crust gets tough and sogs out easily.
How To Freeze Quiche
To freeze a quiche, let it cool completely on the counter first. Then wrap it with plastic wrap first followed with a layer of aluminum foil and freeze. Make sure to add a label and date.
When ready, make sure to take it out of the freezer the night before you want to serve it, so it has a chance to thaw. Place the quiche in the refrigerator to thaw overnight. Then reheat per the instructions above.
“I was thinking…since I am reheating half of a pie plate size quiche, thought I’d put our two pieces in a non stick frying pan on med to low heat for about 15 minutes covered and last 5 minutes, take the lid off…I’ll give it a try and see how it works! I’d rather not have to heat up the oven for two pieces. I use this method to reheat pizza slices and it’s great. Keeps the crust nice and crisp!” – Jane C. via FB
