Have quiche will travel!

    Posted by  ·  August 8, 2008

    We are going to visit friends for a long weekend and I thought I would take some quiche to help with breakfasts.  I love this recipe introduced to me by my sister-in-law. It always gets rave reviews. It is also one of the most flexible and forgiving recipes (except you really need to use the heavy cream, it does make a difference). I have seen my sister-in-law carry these quiche frozen in her carry-on, on an airplane!! You can make the mixture the night before and refrigerate, then the next morning pour into pre-baked crusts and bake or they can be frozen and re-heated.

    You may download The Best Quiche recipe here if you want to give it a try.

    My quiche are frozen and we’re off for a nice weekend with some dear friends.

    I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

      No exaggeration here. It is the best quiche. This is my go-to quiche recipe. Freezes well and travels well. I printed it off years ago and just about panicked when I could not find it in my old-school recipe book.

      Thanks for the unique name Skip to My Lou. I might not have found it again otherwise.

        I should mention that I prefer bacon (about 12 oz before cooking) to ham. Whether bacon or ham, it still is the best.

      I'm a quiche-lover, too. However, you may want to re-think cooking your quiches in aluminum pans. Studies show cooking in aluminum is unhealthy and can contribute to Alzheimer's. My grandparents knew this back in the 1960's. Glass & ceramic are safer...

      Anyway, bon appetite!

      When you pre cook the crust, then cook it again for 50 minutes, how do you keep from having the crust get overdone?

      Love this recipe. I lost my printout recently and had to find it again online--did a search for "the best quiche frozen sister". ;-)

      Hey KellyE,

      Heat on 375 for about 20-25 minutes - that should do the trick!

      Hey Cindy. Another rave here.

      I am a *terrible* houseguest. Whatever I think to do doesn't seem like enough. So I just try to be as helpful as I can and be as little trouble as I can.

      Last weekend we went to a friend's place up north. I made the pie crust and the mixture separately. Put the mixture in a double bagged ziploc and in a cooler on our drive up and made it for our breakfast the first morning of our visit.

      THANK YOU!

      Had the quiche for dinner last night. It hit the spot. Thank you for bringing it last weekend. Wish we had more for a lunch today. Fridge is empty.... Also, thank you for coming to AR. Your presence and help made the weekend special to us!

      Take it from me, this quiche is the best! Cindy served this on the morning of the 4th of July and we all thought it was to die for! Everything else she served that morning was great too! Cindy, thanks for the wonderful recipes as usual!

      Wow thanks this will be perfect to have in the freezer so the daddy person can just heat and eat while I am giving birth.

      I made these for breakfast this morning, except I made mini quiches in my mini muffin pan. I cut up crescent rolls & used as a crust. They were yummy! Thanks for sharing.

      Yum! It truly is the best quiche ever. I have tried it with different vegies and no ham and it is still wonderful -- must be the heavy cream and cheeses. Thanks for sharing this one!
