Our Best Easy Quiches
Whip up one of these simple quiches for an easy brunch or quick dinner that's sure to satisfy family and friends alike.
This quiche calls for store-bought frozen piecrust, which is a wonderful time-saver. Simply fill the piecrust with a mixture of sautéed yellow onions, fresh parsley, half and half, and Gruyère cheese. A sprinkle of ground nutmeg adds a little sweetness and brings all the flavors together.
Crustless Smoked Turkey and Spinach Quiche
Plenty satisfying and easy on the waistline, this crustless turkey and spinach quiche is a perfect brunch recipe to share with your girlfriends. The filling features a combination of bite-sized bits of smoked turkey ham, onions, leafy baby spinach, and shredded cheddar and Swiss cheeses.
Sprinkle some of the Swiss cheese in the pie plate first before adding the ham and egg mixture. The thin layer on the bottom gives you another hit of flavor when you bite into a piece.—Wendy McMillan, Longmont, CO
Spinach and Feta Quiche with Quinoa Crust
Cheesy quiche partners beautifully with a bright, citrusy salad. Whisk together 2 tablespoons canola oil, 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon honey, and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt in a large bowl. Add 3 cups baby kale, 3/4 cup grapefruit sections, and 1/4 cup sliced red onion; toss to coat.
Caramelized-Onion, Spinach, and Bacon Quiche
This ultra-savory recipe calls for a pizza crust instead of the traditional flaky pastry crust. Simply roll out the dough and place it in a pie pan, then top with a mixture of sweet, caramelized onions, salty Canadian bacon, and chopped spinach. Sprinkle with Monterey Jack cheese and you've got a quiche and pizza all in one.
Broccoli-and-Cheddar Mini Quiches
Who needs a pie pan or pastry dough when you've got muffin tins? This quiche recipe combines the standard custard mixture with steamed broccoli and cheddar cheese baked into muffin-sized mini quiches. These are the perfect breakfast treats for your little ones—especially if you have a daily broccoli battle on your hands!
Little quiches fit perfectly in little hands. Best of all, they can be served for any meal of the day. If you're feeling brave, try adding other fresh vegetables or leftover meat to this recipe.
This quiche is a great way to use up refrigerator leftovers at the end of the week. It combines salty chopped olives (or whatever else you have in the fridge), steamed broccoli or asparagus (or whatever else is in the crisper), some of that cooked ham you've been dying to get rid of, and of course...cheese! Add it all to a store-bought pastry shell and voilà! Tummies full and fridge emptied.
Ham and Bacon Quiche
This hearty quiche is loaded with all kinds of tasty ingredients: ham, bacon, mushrooms, cheese and cream. But the best part of the deal is that refrigerated pie crust keeps prep time to just 20 minutes.
Spicy Ham-and-Greens Quiche
Frozen greens and all-purpose baking mix are the shortcut ingredients for this hearty quiche. It’s also a great way to use leftover baked ham.
Stirring picante sauce into the egg mixture gives this quiche its Southwestern flair, and using refrigerated pie crusts keeps it simple.
Cajun Quiche in a Rice Crust
The Cajun-style filling features andouille sausage, onion, peppers and hot sauce, and instead of a pastry crust, a crust made with seasoned cooked rice.
Asparagus and Morel Quiche
Elegant and stylish with a filling of fresh asparagus, dried morel mushrooms, and gruyère cheese, this quiche is great for entertaining because it’s best when you make it a day ahead and reheat just before serving.
