How to reheat quiche? This is a pretty common question and the answer is the oven is really the only method which you should use to reheat quiche.
Below, I explain why the oven is your go to option and why you should never ever ever use the microwave (unless it is a food emergency).
Use the Oven to Reheat Quiche
The oven is by far the best option available when it comes to reheating your quiche. It will have it heated up and tasting like it was fresh out of the oven and this is what you are looking for. While the oven does take some time to get it heated up properly, the wait is definitely worth it.
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
- Place the quiche in an oven safe dish or baking sheet.
- Cover edges of quiche with foil to avoid burning crust.
- Let the quiche reheat for about 20-25 minutes or when the internal temperature is 165 degrees Farenheit.
- Check to ensure that it is fully heated up, once done take out, allow to cool and serve
Why You Should Never Use the Microwave
When you are reheating quiche, the microwave should not even be an option. The reason for this is multi-fold.
- Because of the flaky crust of the quiche, putting it in the microwave will cause the crust to get soggy, so while it will be hot, it won’t taste the same as if you had done it in the oven.
- Microwaves and anything egg based is usually not a good combination. The microwave at times turns eggs rubbery and that will often make the quiche have a pretty awful texture.
- The microwave just cannot replicate what an oven does. Since the quiche was done in the oven, it is best it is reheated in one.
Note: If you are starving or you just don’t care about taste or texture, you can always zap it in the microwave and it will obviously be piping hot. It is not something I recommend, but if you are about that life, then by all means go ahead.
