Similar to our Bacon, Cheese, and Spinach Quiche recipe, it’s tweaked slightly to freeze beautifully and bake deliciously afterward. Sometimes you just need something delicious and homemade you can pull from the freezer at the last minute, and this is one of those recipes, perfect for last minute guests or impromptu celebrations.
It’s such a simple recipe that it only takes minutes to pull together. I like to make a couple at a time to store in the freezer. When you’re ready to bake the quiche, don’t thaw it, simply bake it following the instructions I have included below.
What do I need to make this Make Ahead Quiche?
One of the things I love about this quiche is its simple ingredients. And versatility. Sometimes I swap cooked ham for the bacon and sometimes eliminate the spinach if I’m out. But these are my preferred ingredients!
You’ll need a 9 inch store bought unbaked pie crust (but you can make your own if you prefer). I like to use a pre-made pastry because it’s already in a freezable tin and is very convenient for storage!
Add shredded Swiss cheese (or Italian blend), cooked bacon strips, fresh spinach (you can use frozen but remember to thaw it and squeeze out any excess water first), large eggs, half and half (or single cream outside of the US), and green onions (or scallions, spring onions, or whatever salad onion you have on hand).
How to freeze this Make-Ahead Quiche
After assembling the quiche, cover first with a layer of plastic wrap, followed by a layer of foil. Seal the edges tightly and transfer them to the freezer carefully. You don’t want to slosh the unbaked quiche before it has a chance to freeze.
Make sure to label the quiche carefully with the cooking instructions so you’ve got them ready when you need them!
How to bake this Quiche from frozen
Simply bake in a preheated 400-degree F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. Ovens vary so you’ll want to check on it, and remember to write down if your oven varies so you know for next time!
I also like to wrap foil around the edges of the crust to prevent over-browning or burning. Or you could use a 9-inch pie crust protector shield.
Can I bake this quiche right away?
Ye of course! If you’re baking it right away, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake for 45 minutes or until set and golden brown.
