If you’re wanting to plan your menu as far as what to serve with quiche, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll share delicious side dish ideas specifically for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch.

How to serve quiche

The best way to serve quiche is while it is warm. Quiche should be served hot after it has come out of the oven, but has had a chance to set up for a few minutes.

If you try to cut quiche when it’s piping hot, chances are you won’t be able to get a nice slice with sharp edges. You’re more likely to end up with a warm heap of mush. Instead, let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before slicing it and serving it. This will allow the pie to fully set up.

Have you ever had cold quiche straight out of the refrigerator? Cold quiche is sad and drab.  For the best results, take the time to warm it thoroughly before serving it.

Delicious Quiche Recipe:

6 large Eggs
1 ½ cups milk or half and half
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

If you’d like to add a crust, you can use a prepared pie crust, pressing it to the outside of the pan, then add the filling, baking it all at once.

Add eggs, milk, salt and pepper to a mixing bowl, mix on high with a whisk attachment until the eggs are foamy and well incorporated.

Add add-ins to the baking pan lined with prepared crust if desired. If crust is not desired, grease the baking pan with cooking oil.

Then add desired chopped add-ins. Pour egg mixture over add ins. Bake at 350F degrees for 50 minutes, or until center is done.

Quiche add-ins:
Shredded potatoes
Sweet peppers
Carrots, grated
Zucchini, shredded

Note about vegetables: When including harder vegetables such as broccoli, onion, potatoes, peppers, carrots, we recommend cutting them as finely as possible and steaming them until they’re just soft before adding them to the filling mixture. This will assure that your quiche filling turns out soft.
