Ham, Mushroom & Spinach Quiche from Miss in the KitchenQuiche is one of my very favorite dishes to serve my family and is so easy for entertaining.  Rather you are having a holiday brunch or a big family Christmas party, quiche is the perfect dish.  It can be served hot right out of the oven or at room temperature.

During the holidays I always keep refrigerated pie crusts, they are one of my favorite shortcuts for the holidays.  Eggs, cheese and gallons of milk (literally gallons – I have 3 boys!) are always in my fridge.  The refrigerated dairy isle is packed with our must have foods.  These simple, fresh, farm-grown ingredients are just waiting to be turned into fabulous dishes like quiche!

One question, does the oven degrees change when you are baking the quiche for 50 – 55 minutes? Thank you, Margie

Yes! Thanks for pointing that out. I corrected the recipe. You lower it to 325 after baking the crust for 10 minutes.

I just made this quiche this morning. I loved the cheesiness and I thought there was a good ratio of egg to veggie to meat. I did have to put some of the mixture into a ramekin separately as there was more mix than would fit into the pie crust… but the more the merrier.

I didn’t have any green onions on hand, so I left them out. I used skim milk and did add two cloves of crushed garlic and it was delicious.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Can you freeze quiche?

I have never tried it myself. I think you would have to bake it first and let it cool. As long as you wrap it in a couple layers of plastic wrap and then foil, I think it would work. The eggs might have a bit of a rubbery texture when re-heated. Let me know how it works out if you try it. Thanks!
