How To Reheat Quiche

Quiche is an easy one of the most delicious dishes to eat, whether large slices or mini ones. It works for any season and any meal. But the tricky part is leftovers – you don’t want soggy quiche, nor do you want to burn or dry it out. So, how do you reheat quiche?

Refrigerated quiche can be reheated in the oven at 350°F for 15-20 minutes, or you can reheat it in the microwave at reduced power for 3-4 minutes uncovered. Cover frozen quiche with foil before reheating in the oven. It is better to reheat quiche from room temperature for best results.

There are various ways you can reheat quiche.

It is essential to try and follow the required steps and avoid soggy or dried-out quiche to ensure the best results.

Below we will walk through the easy methods you can use to reheat quiche.

Reheating Quiche In The Oven

It is pretty easy to reheat quiche in the oven, and it is generally the best method for baked dishes.

It takes longer than using a microwave but will taste fresher.

You can do it with refrigerated quiche but always try to remove your quiche from the fridge and reach room temperature first.

You can reheat a whole quiche or several slices in the oven.

Here are the steps:

  1. Set your oven at 350°F to preheat.
  2. Place your quiche on an oven tray.
  3. Use a pie shield to cover the crust. Aluminum foil also works well if you do not have a pie shield.
  4. Heat the quiche until it reaches an internal temperature of 160°F for about 15-20 minutes.  
  5. Once your quiche is done, remove the foil or pie shield.
  6. Serve warm.

Reheating Quiche In The Microwave

The microwave works pretty well for reheating quiche.

You can follow this method when you are short on time or cannot wait for the oven to heat.

When you reheat quiche in the microwave, warm single slices or whole mini quiches, and if you have more than one slice of quiche to heat, do it one at a time.

It is also best to ensure your quiche is at room temperature; however, you can warm it while it is chilled from the fridge if you are in a rush or forgot to remove it earlier.

Here are the steps:

  1. Put your quiche on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Set your microwave to a medium or low power setting.
  3. Place the plate of quiche in the microwave uncovered.
  4. Heat it for 2-4 minutes. Check it after 2 minutes and remove it when heated through fully.
  5. Serve it immediately.

How To Reheat Frozen Quiche

Reheating frozen quiche is slightly different because you will need to ensure the quiche defrosts and warms through to the center without drying out.

The oven is the best option when rewarming frozen quiche because it provides an even heat distribution.

Use foil to cover it to prevent your frozen quiche from burning and overcooking when reheating. You can use this method to reheat quiche without thawing.

Here are the steps.

  1. Set your oven to 350°F for preheating.
  2. Put your quiche on an oven tray or baking sheet and cover it with aluminum foil.
  3. Place the quiche in the oven and heat it for around 30-40 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 160°F.
  4. After removing the quiche from the oven, allow it to sit for about 10 minutes while covered.  
  5. Remove the foil before serving.

Reheating Quiche In The Toaster Oven

A toaster oven is an excellent option for quick rewarming quiche without worrying about a moist crust like in the microwave.

As with all the methods, getting your quiche to room temperature is always best, but it can work if you need to reheat it chilled.

Here are the steps:

  1. Preheat your toaster oven to 375°F.
  2. Cover the crust of the quiche with aluminum foil.
  3. Heat the quiche for 10 minutes or until done at an internal temperature of 160°F.
  4. Take the quiche out once it is done and remove the foil.
  5. Serve warm.  

How To Store Quiche

Whether you are making freeze-ahead meals or have some leftovers, it is essential to store your quiche correctly.

Proper storage ensures easier, quicker, and more efficient reheating and allows your quiche to taste fresher.

It also saves the texture of the quiche and can prevent sogging.

Before storing any type of quiche, one step to always remember is to ensure it has thoroughly cooled down first.

Here are some efficient ways to store quiche:

Store Quiche In The Fridge

You can store your make-ahead quiche or leftovers in the fridge by wrapping them in plastic wrap.

If you have more than one slice of quiche, wrap each piece individually.

Plastic wrap helps keep moisture out. Please place it in a container for more protection.

Refrigerated quiche will last about 2-3 days, so it is best to use it up as fast as possible to avoid spoilage and wastage.

When ready to use, take it out of the fridge, remove the plastic wrap, and bring it to room temperature.

Then follow one of the reheating steps mentioned above.

Store Quiche In The Freezer

The freezer is an excellent option to store quiche if you cannot use it within a few days.

You can use a similar storage method as the fridge by wrapping the quiche in plastic wrap.

You may want to take it one step further and wrap it in foil to prevent freezer burn.

If you don’t want to use foil, you can place it in a freezer-safe container – or do both for more protection.

Frozen quiche will last for about three months.

After one month, it may start to lose flavor.

Freezing quiche also makes the eggs rubbery, so it is best to make a fresh quiche or use it up within a month from freezing.

Use the above reheating method for frozen quiche when you are ready to use it.

Conclusion

There are several ways mentioned for reheating quiche.

The oven is always best, and using room temperature quiche gives you the best results.

No more wasting – you can enjoy your delicious quiche for days after baking!
