How to Rewarm a Quiche

By Angela LaFollette

A quiche is an egg dish that generally consists of other ingredients like vegetables, milk and cheese. A quiche looks similar to a pie and it is served as a meal. You can make a quiche ahead of time and store it in the freezer until you are ready to eat it. A quiche needs warmed or reheated properly to prevent food-borne illnesses and to protect the flavor and texture of the eggs. The crust can become soggy on the quiche, which can give it an undesirable texture.

Warm a quiche in the microwave or oven properly to enjoy the egg dish.

Microwave

Step 1

Place the quiche in the refrigerator to thaw completely. Allow it to thaw overnight for best results.

Step 2

Place the quiche into a microwave-safe container. Remove any foil or plastic wrap from the quiche.

Step 3

Reduce the microwave power setting to 70 percent or to a medium-high setting.

Step 4

Heat the quiche in the microwave for two-and-a-half to five minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Check the temperature while you heat the quiche to avoid overheating it.

Oven

Step 5

Thaw the quiche overnight in the refrigerator. Place it out at room temperature for one hour.

Step 6

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the plastic wrapping from the quiche, but you can leave the aluminum foil on if you desire.

Step 7

Place the quiche onto a metal baking sheet. If you leave it in the aluminum foil, you can place it directly onto the baking rack.

Step 8

Bake the quiche for 10 to 15 minutes. Test the temperature with a thermometer. The internal temperature must reach 165 degrees before you can safely consume it. Continue heating the quiche until it reaches this desired temperature.
