Ingredients

  • 1 Nine-Inch Pie Crust, Premade

  • 5 Large Eggs

  • 120 ml Double Cream

  • 60 ml Milk

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 1 tsp Dried Garlic

  • 90 g Shredded Cheese (Cheddar is Best)

  • 30 g Baby Spinach, Chopped

Directions

  • Get Prepared
    Place the pie crust onto a lined baking sheet, and set it aside. Now is a good time to heat your oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.
  • Make Quiche Mix
    Add the eggs, cream, milk, salt, and garlic to a large mixing bowl. Mix them until well whisked and combined. You don’t want any unwhisked eggs.
  • Add Fillings
    Add the cheese and spinach to the mixing bowl, and whisk everything together a few times until the ingredients are combined. You only need to fold the ingredients into the egg mixture.
  • Fill Crust
    Pour the egg mixture into the crust, then give it a few very gentle taps on the worktop to bring any air bubbles to the top of the mix.
  • Cook
    Pop the quiche into the oven for around 45 minutes until the centre is cooked and set. You may need to cover the quiche with some foil for the final 10 to 15 minutes to prevent it from burning on the top.

How to Freeze It

So you’ve followed my recipe. You’ve got a quiche or two sitting in front of you? Well, how do you actually freeze it for the future?

  1. Layer
    Wrap the quiche in a layer of cling film, but try to ensure that the cling film doesn’t directly make contact with the egg mixture. However, ensure that the cling film makes good contact with the pastry, as it will keep moisture out.
  2. Layer Again
    Layer foil on top of the cling film layer. This will protect the quiche from any physical damage it might sustain during its time in the freezer, which might include it being dropped a little, or something dropping onto it.
  3. Freeze
    Freeze the quiche, making as sure as you can that it’s level. Once frozen, it can be stored at an angle, but while it’s still thawed, it may leak if not stored level.

How to Use It

Today’s the day. You’ve decided you want to crack into the quiche. It’s ready in the freezer but how do you eat it? Fortunately, you don’t even need to wait hours for it to defrost:

  1. Preheat Your Oven
    Start by preheating your oven to 350F or 175C. It’s important to use a moderate oven temperature to ensure the quiche reheats evenly and doesn’t dry out.
  2. Bake
    Place the frozen quiche on a baking sheet to catch any potential drips. Then, put it in the oven. It will usually take about 20-25 minutes for a standard-sized quiche, but it may vary depending on the size and thickness of your quiche.
  3. Check the Temperature
    The best way to check if your quiche is heated is by using a food thermometer. The internal temperature should reach at least 165°F or 74°C. If you don’t have a food thermometer, you can also check by inserting a knife into the centre of the quiche. If it comes out hot to the touch, the quiche is ready.
  4. Rest
    Once out of the oven, let the quiche sit for a few minutes before serving. This helps it to set up a bit more and makes it easier to slice.

How to Tweak It

I love my quiche recipe but you can swap out the spinach and then use the base recipe to come up with many exciting quiche recipes:

Drizzle Sriracha

Give your traditional quiche a spicy twist by adding a drizzle of Sriracha sauce. Add it to the egg mixture before baking or drizzle it on top just before serving to give your quiche a fiery kick. This is perfect for spice lovers and will transform your usual quiche into an exciting culinary adventure.

Give It a Flavour of the South

Add canned black beans and corn to your quiche filling for a southern twist. Ensure both are well-drained to avoid making the quiche too wet. This addition brings a new texture and flavour to your quiche and pairs well with some shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese.

Go the Seafood Route

Add some finely chopped smoked salmon and fresh dill to your quiche for a sophisticated upgrade. The smoky, rich salmon complements the creamy quiche wonderfully, while the dill adds a fresh note. This tweak transforms your quiche into an elegant brunch or dinner option.

Make It Creamier

Mix in some ricotta cheese to the quiche filling. This simple tweak will add a lovely creaminess and slightly sweet flavour to your quiche, making it even more satisfying.

  1. I might be missing something but I can’t find an actual recipe for this quiche. You know quantities of flour eggs, spinach, etc.

  3. 19 inches (48.26 centimeters)? I don’t think I have ever seen a readymade pie crust/base that big before. Are you sure the dimensions (or the measurements (of ingredients) )are correct?
    Gonna need a bigger freezer! 😉
