How To Reheat Quiche To Keep It Creamy and Crispy

Quiche is a really phenomenal light meal, ideal for a break at work or a quick snack between meals. You can make it with any ingredients you like.

Other people put a little bacon or ham, sometimes a lot of vegetables. What they have in common is that a quiche is mostly topped with cheese, eggs, and cream, and baked to get a nice crispy crust.

Another common thing to just about every quiche is that it is completely inedible when cold. That is, it is not exactly the most beautiful feeling you can get from food. How to turn leftover quiche into a delicious snack is what we bring you below.

Reheating Quiche In A Microwave

Warming up quiche in the microwave is the first in the list because let us be honest, work is probably the most common place where you’ll eat your piece of quiche leftover from yesterday. And, the only device you have in the office is probably a microwave. 

Here are tips on how to make the result as good as possible.

Step 1: Let the Quiche Rest at Room Temperature

If you have taken the quiche to work, then you do not have these worries. On the way to your workplace, enough time has probably passed for the quiche to temper.

But if you are at home, it is good to take it out of the refrigerator for about 15 minutes before warming up and let it stand at room temperature.

Step 2: Preheat the Quiche for 3 Minutes

Place the quiche on a plate that is microwave-safe and does not cover it with anything. Then, set the microwave to approximately 50% power because you don’t want overheating to ruin the texture of the eggs found in the dressing. 

Heat for 3 minutes. If it is still not hot enough, return it to the microwave but at intervals of 30 seconds. Be careful not to overcook the quiche.


Reheating Quiche In An Oven

Without a doubt, an oven is the best way to reheat quiche, especilally after you freeze quiche. It will preserve the taste recognizable for quiche and the delicate texture of the dressing and crispy crust. So, we definitely recommend that you opt for an oven even though it’s not the quickest solution.

Step 1: Let the Quiche Rest a Bit on a Room Temperature

As we advised, when heating in the microwave, it is good to let the quiche rest for about 15 minutes at room temperature. You can also use this time to preheat the oven.

Step 2: Preheat the Oven to 350 °F

You need to set the oven temperature to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and let it heat up thoroughly. 

Step 3: Cover the Crust with Foil and Place in the Oven for 15 Minutes

Place the quiche on a baking sheet and cover the crust with a little aluminum foil, but just the crust, not the whole quiche. You need to do this so that the already crunchy crust doesn’t burn further. 

Put in the oven to bake for 15 minutes. If you have a slightly weaker oven, leave for 20 minutes. Remove the quiche from the oven, then add the stuffing as desired and serve.

Conclusion

Of course, quiche is always best when just prepared and freshly taken out of the oven. But similar to pies and most dishes that you make in a slightly larger casserole, you hardly have no leftovers after a meal. 

In addition, quiche is an ideal light snack, so why not prepare a slightly larger portion in advance and take it to work for lunch. 

Although reheated quiche does not have exactly the same taste as fresh, it can still be a delicious meal. You just need to follow a few simple tips and reheat the quiche to the ideal temperature.
