What is the secret to a good Quiche?

A good Quiche starts with good ingredients. There are many things that can be added to a quiche and that is why we love it so much. But the secret to getting the perfect quiche with the egg filling.

Make sure that you correctly portion on your egg filling. For each egg you use, pour in a half of cup of milk. To little dairy could dry out your quiche or to much could make it to runny. This ratio will help you have the perfect creamy quiche.

Zucchini Quiche is one of my favorite ways to prepare quiche. Adding zucchini to your quiche is healthy and delicious. You can either slice the zucchini or shred the zucchini.

How do I make my Quiche Fluffy?

To make the quiche fluffy, make sure you are using the right number of eggs. Using the perfect ration of eggs and milk make the quiche light and fluffy.

If you use to many eggs the quiche can be rubbery and firm.

Tips to make The Best Quiche:

This is one of our favorite go to meals that everyone loves. We make it frequently because it is so easy and filling. Here are some helpful tips to make the best and easiest quiche:

  • Blind Bake the Crust – To ensure the crust is done make sure that you bake the crust before adding in the filling. Make sure to put pie weights or beans to keep your crust flat.
  • Use the right number of Eggs – Using to many eggs can cause the quiche to be firm and rubbery. For one egg use a half cup of milk. This ensure your quiche will be creamy.
  • Added Ingredients are dry – Make sure the added ingredients are dry. If you are adding in mushrooms, make sure to cook them before on the stove. Drain the spinach completely before adding.
  • Browning the Quiche – Place the quiche on the bottom rack of your oven. This ensures that the bottom and the top of the quiche gets a golden brown and crispy edges.
  • Cooking the Quiche – Don’t overcook the quiche. You want the baked quiche to have a little jiggle to it. It is good to undercook it just a bit.

Can I make quiche ahead of time?

Yes, you can! This is great for Saturday brunch or busy weeks when you have a lot going on. Simply prepare the quiche in advance and enjoy!

  1. I assume you cook the bacon first– then crumble???? Please reply! Thank you!

  2. Prior to recipe you say prep time 15 minutes and COOK time 15 minutes for a total of 30 minutes, then under instructions you say bake at 375 for 15 minutes reduce heat to 350 bake another 25-30 minutes or until egg is cooked through. Is this not a TOTAL COOK TIME of 40-45 minutes, not 15?

  3. Yes, you are correct. I have updated the cook time in the recipe. Thanks for letting us know!

  4. Please update recipe to say cooked bacon and correct the time and repost so when I pin and make later, I will not make it incorrectly. Thanks

  5. Confused -at the beginning you say perfect filling is 1/2 cup milk for each egg used. Recipe shows 6 eggs but only 1 cup of milk/cream? Very different ratios. Also recipe shows 1 1/2 cups cheese but only see 1 cup used in step 5, is the other half cup spread on top?

    I love getting quiche from our local french restaurant but have trouble getting the ratios right at home.
