How To Reheat Quiche - Top 4 Methods

As you can imagine, so many things could go wrong when reheating quiche if you aren't careful. So, following one of the methods mentioned below is important for reheating your quiche without ruining it. However, before you pop your quiche in the appliance for reheating, take it out from the fridge and let it reach room temperature.

Method 1: The Oven

The oven is easily the best way to reheat baked food items, including quiche. It not only retains the original flavor and texture of your dish, but also allows you to reheat a whole quiche for a large group.

Method 2: The Microwave

The main advantage of reheating your quiche in the microwave is that it's super easy and quick. However, there's a drawback; reheating quiche in the microwave will make it soggy. Don't worry; we'll let you in on a secret: use a low-medium heat setting.

Method 4: The Toaster Oven

Toaster ovens are typically used for reheating food. So, it's no surprise that it makes the list of the top ways to reheat your quiche. One key advantage is that it uses less energy than traditional ovens. However, they tend to be smaller in size. So, you can only reheat a slice or two at a time.

Method 3: The Air Fryer

Perhaps the second-best way to reheat a quiche is in the air fryer. For some, it may even be the best method as it reheats food quicker than an oven. However, the only disadvantage is that you can reheat only a slice or two, depending on the size of your quiche.

How To Reheat Frozen Quiche?

When reheating a frozen quiche, make sure to let it thaw completely overnight in the fridge. Once it's thawed, you can use any of the methods mentioned above to reheat your quiche.

Storage Tips For Leftover Quiche

There are two ways to store leftover quiche- in the fridge or freezer. Just make sure to let your baked quiche reach room temperature first.

In the fridge: 

Cut your quiche into slices and store each slice in an airtight container or a resealable plastic bag. In the fridge, your quiche should be good for up to 5 days.

In the freezer:

You'll have to give extra protection to your quiche if you're storing it in the freezer. First, wrap the quiche tightly in plastic wrap. Then, place it in a resealable freezer bag or a freezer-safe airtight container. You can store quiche up to 3 months in the freezer. But we recommend you use it in the first month itself to enjoy its original flavor.
