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 flavour and texture of the eggs. The crust can become soggy on the quiche, which can give it an undesirable texture.

  1. 1

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

  2. 2

    Place the quiche into a microwave-safe container. Remove any foil or cling film from the quiche.

  3. 3

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

  4. 4

    Heat the quiche in the microwave for two-and-a-half to five minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 73.9 degrees C. Check the temperature while you heat the quiche to avoid overheating it.

  1. 1

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

  2. 2

    Heat the oven to 176 degrees C. Remove the plastic wrapping from the quiche, but you can leave the aluminium foil on if you desire.

  3. 3

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

  4. 4

    Bake the quiche for 10 to 15 minutes. Test the temperature with a thermometer. The internal temperature must reach 73.9 degrees C before you can safely consume it. Continue heating the quiche until it reaches this desired temperature.

Tips and warnings

  • Avoid eating the quiche if the temperature does not reach 73.9 degrees C. A temperature less than this can promote the growth of dangerous bacteria.
