19 Quiche Recipes for the Perfect Make-Ahead Meal for Any Occasion
There’s a lot to love about a buttery, flaky crust filled with rich, eggy custard. Quiche can be an everyday egg pie filled with the leftover bits of cheese, vegetables, and meat from last week’s grocery run. Or, it can be the star of a special-occasion brunch. Quiche can be as simple or as complex as you choose. Make pie dough from scratch or use a store-bought pastry. Quiche is equally delicious served at room temperature as it is reheated.
But, perhaps most importantly at a time of year when delicate spring foods beg to be prepared at the very last instant, quiche is an ideal make-ahead option. You can blind bake the crust up to a day in advance or bake the entire quiche 3 days before serving. In fact, quiche will slice more cleanly when baked in advance.
So whether you’re celebrating Easter or planning a spring picnic in your backyard, if there’s one thing you should make ahead, let it be quiche.
A note on ingredients: We know that getting specific ingredients can be a challenge right now. You can swap half-and-half for heavy cream or whole milk in the custard, and mix up the filling from what you have in the refrigerator.
