Wondering what to serve with quiche? This list has you covered, with everything from simple salads to hearty soups.
There’s also a money-saving list of items you could pick up from the store, and some quick meal inspiration!
We have some ideas for what to eat with quiche, whether you’re whipping up a side to go with your neighborhood bakery’s quiche, or a quiche you made yourself.
You can make it for breakfast and brunch, enjoy it with a cup of coffee or better yet, serve it for dinner when you need something hot and easy to whip up.
Sometimes quiche on its own is just not enough, though. This is especially true if you plan to serve it for a couple of people for dinner, lunch, or brunch.
You can stretch a whole quiche to serve 8 people if you serve a couple of sides alongside it. For that reason, we have compiled a list of our favorite sides for quiche that you can whip up in no time.
- Salad. A simple bagged salad kit can be a great way to add some freshness and lightness to your quiche. You can choose any type of salad you like, but a green salad with vinaigrette dressing is a classic choice.
- Soup. Soup is a hearty and flavorful way to warm up on a cold day. A creamy soup like tomato soup or broccoli cheddar soup is a great pairing for quiche.
- Fruit. Fruit is a refreshing and healthy way to end your meal. A fruit salad or a plate of fresh berries is a great way to round out your quiche.
- Bread. A crusty piece of bread is a classic accompaniment to quiche. You can choose any type of bread you like, but a baguette or a croissant is a great option.
- Crackers. Crackers are a light and crispy way to enjoy quiche. You can choose any type of crackers you like, but saltines or graham crackers are a great option.
- Chips. Chips are a crunchy and flavorful way to enjoy quiche. You can choose any type of chips you like, but potato chips or tortilla chips are a great option.
- Bell peppers in the air fryer. Seriously, you don’t need to do anything besides wash them. They come out slightly charred, soft, and sweet. Slide three roasted minis onto everyone’s plate.
- Sauce. Sauce can add some flavor and richness to your quiche. You can choose any type of sauce you like, but hollandaise sauce or béchamel sauce are delish.
- Potatoes. Toss a simple, humble sweet potato in the microwave!
- Garnishes. Garnishes can add some visual appeal and flavor to your quiche. You can choose any type of garnish you like, but chopped herbs, bacon bits, or shredded cheese is a great option.
These are just a few of the many popular items that you can serve with quiche. With so many options to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect accompaniment for your quiche.
Quick meal inspiration
If you’re looking for a little help deciding, let’s take a look at some of our recommendations for what to serve with quiche.
With quiche that has seafood: Cheddar Bay Biscuits, Homemade Seafood Chowder, and an Easy Arugula, or Steamed Green Beans With Lemon.
With a mild quiche: go for bold flavors for your sides: Prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus, Bacon-Wrapped Dates, Roasted Vegetable Bisque.
Heavily cheesy or meaty quiche needs light sides: Fruit salad, arugula with lemon vinaigrette, tomato basil soup.
What To Serve With Quiche
1. Green Salad
Thanks to all the eggs and cheese in it, a quiche is often a stick-to-your-ribs kind of meal. This is why pairing it with a light green salad made with romaine, iceberg, or a mix of both, with just a few fresh vegetables can be a good idea.
Add a nice homemade ranch, blue cheese, or thousand island dressing, and you are good to go. Make a salad with fresh greens and tangy vinaigrette, and you will have the perfect side to complement your quiche.
Ingredients include: Mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, English cucumbers, red onion, and balsamic vinaigrette.
If you have made a savory quiche, especially one with proteins like chicken or crab, pairing it with a fruit salad is a good option. Depending on which fresh fruits are available in your region, make a simple chopped fruit salad or hot compote and serve it with your quiche and a glass of white wine.
Ingredients include: Strawberries, pineapple, grapes, blueberries, and mandarin oranges.
One perfect side for quiche is a bowl of fresh and sweet berries. This pair will be most appropriate if you plan to serve quiche at a picnic or evening tea. Though fresh berries on their own are excellent, you can go the extra mile by topping with fresh cream and powdered sugar, too.
Ingredients include: Berries, lime juice, sugar, vanilla pudding mix, and whipping cream.
You can buy one of those big rectangular containers of spring mix, organic or otherwise, for just a few dollars and you can serve a whole table of people with a side of tossed mixed greens.
Tip: Season your greens! Salt and pepper, steak seasoning, celery seasoning, and other spice blends all do wonders for greens.
Ingredients include: Mixed greens, red onion, olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and garlic.
Here’s our Champagne Vinaigrette that isn’t sweet at all and would make a nice tossed greens side.
5. Tomato Soup
Soups go well with quiche, especially in fall and winter to add to the warmth and comfort of the meal. So if you are making a quiche with a heavy cheesy filling, like a Cheese Onion quiche, tomato soup would pair well.
Ingredients include: Tomatoes, onion, flour, vegetable stock, and tomato paste.
Combine in a blender several kinds of cooked vegetables, add sour cream, bacon, and chives to create tasty and excellent bisque. Though this side takes time, it will be well worth it when you eat the bisque and quiche together.
Ingredients include: Vegetables, avocado oil, vegetable broth, salt, and garlic powder.
Yes, the simple wedge salad with a nice chunk of iceberg lettuce, blue cheese dressing, chopped cooked bacon, red onion, and cherry tomatoes.
Ingredients include: Bacon, cherry tomatoes, iceberg lettuce, red onion, and blue cheese dressing.
8. Pea Salad
I remember having Pea Salad at my aunt’s house as a child and not being too sure about shredded cheese in a cold salad. And yet, now that I’m (almost) grown-up, this chilled and easy peasy (get it?) make-ahead salad.
It’s a nice side for simple Onion-and-Cheddar Quiche.
Ingredients include: Frozen peas, bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, shredded mozzarella cheese.
This is a classic at potlucks back in the day. If you’re throwing it down old school, grab your cans of cooked beans and get this one ready ahead, and pull it out just as you’re serving the warmed quiche.
Ingredients include: Black beans, cannellini beans, kidney beans, onion, and olive oil.
10. Waldorf Salad
The salty crunch of celery with the sweet apples and a simple mayo dressing has transformed over the years from creme fraiche in the 90s, to today’s base of an emulsified mixture of Dijon mustard, olive oil, champagne vinegar, egg yolk, and white truffle oil.
Today’s Waldorf Salad recipe is often dotted with marshmallows and mandarin oranges, which then become a different salad altogether. This one’s a classic if you’re wondering what to serve with quiche.
Ingredients include: Romaine lettuce, apples, grapes, celery, and mayonnaise.
Make this pudding fruit salad as sweet as you want, but for a touch of yum that goes nicely in bowls like these cuddle up next to your plates of quiche, this is the way to go. This salad is easy to customize—leave out the stuff you don’t like, and add in the stuff you do, and make it your own.

A wonderfully fresh, light take on everything we love about cheesecake.
Ingredients include: Fresh fruit, heavy cream, cream cheese, vanilla extract, and powdered sugar.
13. Lemon Curd

Lemon curd is both tangy and sweet, and it brings out the best in a Spinach Quiche.
Ingredients include: Lemon juice, granulated sugar, lemon zest, unsalted butter, and large egg yolks.
Yep, you can roast asparagus in the oven, but there is something special about grilling it on hot coals or even gas grills.

So hearty, sweet, salty, satisfying. I have to admit I love Bacon-Wrapped Dates with anything and everything. Even though these tend to be both heavy on carbs, calories, sugar, and fat (that’s about everything, right?) I tell myself that I’m getting some fruit in for the day.
