How to Reheat Quiche and Keep It Tasty!

How to Reheat Quiche and Keep It Tasty!

We love quiche in this household. We had what I called quiche cupcakes this past weekend. We made a lot of them so that we would have leftovers. This is why we needed to know how to reheat quiche the best way.

We reheat quiche quite often because it is a perfect dish to create in advance and serve later. We always have a quiche ready for Christmas morning.

If we have guests coming, we also have a quiche ready and waiting.

If you are in a hurry and want to quickly know how to reheat quiche we recommend that you reheat it in the oven. This method keeps the crust nice and crispy and doesn’t dry the quiche out. 

  • Pull the quiche from the fridge and leave it on the counter for about 15 minutes.
  • Cover the quiche with aluminum foil.
  • Turn your oven to 350 degrees and reheat it on a baking sheet for about 15 minutes. 

Can quiche sit out overnight?

No, quiche should not set out overnight. Quiche shouldn’t be kept at room temperature for more than 2 hours.

Even if you are in a hurry we recommend that you cover the quiche will aluminum foil and place it in the fridge for quick storage.

How long will quiche last in the refrigerator?

Cooked quiche will last 3-4 days in the refrigerator. You can extend the life of leftover quiche by freezing what remains but only if it has been in the fridge for less than 4 days. 

Can you make quiche ahead of time and reheat it?

Yes, you can make quiche ahead of time and reheat it. You can fully bake it, then allow it to cool and store it in the refrigerator.

You can also fully bake it, allow it to cool and then freeze it. 

You can also put together a quiche in advance and bake it when you are ready to serve it. In this instance, you would store it in the fridge until you are ready to cook it.

Uncooked quiche should not be kept in the fridge for more than 24 hours before baking it.

Helpful tips on reheating quiche

  • Allowing the quiche to come to room temperature prior to reheating it will help with keeping the texture of the crust and ingredients close to the original desired texture.
  • If reheating quiche in the microwave cut it into small pieces prior to reheating it. This will allow you to reheat it quicker which will help keep the crust from getting too soggy.
  • If reheating the quiche in the microwave be sure to use a microwave-safe dish. This is important and easy to forget.
  • Allow the quiche to set for a couple of minutes prior to serving it.
  • Be sure the oven is at 350 degrees prior to putting the quiche in the oven. If you allow the oven to heat up with the quiche in it, the crust may turn out soggy.

Tips on reheating frozen quiche

If you have a frozen quiche stashed in the freezer that you would like to reheat and serve for a brunch, we got you covered here.

It is super simple to reheat a frozen quiche.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Remove the quiche from the freezer and remove any covering or packaging.
  3. Place it on a baking sheet and cover it with foil. 
  4. Bake for 35 minutes.
  5. Remove it from the oven and check the internal temperature. Make sure that it has reached an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
  6. If it has reached the perfect temperature, leave it covered in the foil on the counter for about 15 minutes.
  7. Serve while warm.

How to reheat a quiche in the oven

A quiche is cooked in the oven and reheating it in the oven is by far the best option to retain that crispy crust and the texture that we all love.

  1. Set your quiche out and allow it to come to room temperature.
  2. Preheat your oven to 350 degree.
  3. Place your quiche on a baking sheet and cover it with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake the quiche in the oven for about 15-25 minutes or until it is heated all the way through. (Most often 15 minutes does the trick but check the internal temperature to be certain.)

Note: The quiche should be at 165 degrees in the center. We recommend using a baking thermometer.

How to reheat quiche in the microwave

While we believe that reheating quiche in the oven is the optimal choice for the tastiest quiche sometimes we just don’t have the time for that. That is when we wind up heating our quiche in the microwave.

Do note that when reheating quiche in the microwave you will want to do it one slice at a time. Be careful not to overcook the quiche because it will become soggy if overheated.

  1. Set your quiche out and allow it to come to room temperature.
  2. Place a slice of quiche on a microwave-safe plate.
  3. Microwave the quiche on medium-high for 30 seconds.
  4. Check the quiches’ internal temperature. The internal temperature should be 165 degrees.

How to freeze a quiche

You can freeze a quiche. If the quiche is already cooked you can freeze it for up to two months. If the quiche has not been cooked you can freeze it for up to one month.

Baking a quiche prior to freezing it makes it a bit easier to handle.

Make sure that your quiche has cooled to room temperature before placing it in the freezer. (Do note that you shouldn’t leave a quiche out at room temperature for more than 2 hours.)

  1. Cover the quiche with plastic wrap.
  2. Cover the top of the quiche with aluminum foil.
  3. Place it on a level spot on the freezer. Don’t put anything on top of it.

Conclusion

Reheating quiche may seem like a complicated process but just remember that your means of reheating depends on your particular need.

Use oven if you want a perfectly reheated quiche, and use a microwave, if you’re in a rush.
