Quiche can be served straight from the oven while puffed and golden. But it is also tasty when eaten cold. As a cold dish, it can be eaten as a snack on the go or as part of a picnic or other meal. Serving quiche cold gives you the advantage of being able to prepare it hours or even a day in advance. Whether you have leftover quiche Lorraine with cream and bacon or a variation with vegetables, cheese and/or meats of your choice, eating it cold is easy.
Remove your cold quiche from the refrigerator. You can use leftovers from a quiche that was eaten hot or warm at a previous meal or refrigerate an entire cooked quiche to be eaten cold.
Slice the quiche with a knife. If you are eating a quick leftover snack of cold quiche, you will want to cut a thin slice you can easily hold in your hand or on a napkin. If you are serving it at a picnic or other meal, cut regular slices.
Remove the slice(s) of quiche from the quiche pan using a pie server. If you do not have a pie server, you can use a fork.
Set the quiche slice(s) on a napkin or plate.
Eat your quiche slice. If you are taking it to eat in the car or as a kitchen snack, you can eat it directly out of the napkin, holding the quiche slice up to your mouth and biting. If you are eating it with a group or as part of a meal, use your fork to cut off a bite of quiche at a time.
