How to Reheat Quiche

Written By Ross Young


Quiche is a delicious meal option that can be enjoyed all year round, whether you’ve made it yourself or picked up a pre-made quiche from the supermarket. But what should you do if you have some leftovers? But can you safely reheat quiche?

To reheat quiche, you can use the microwave or the oven. For reheating quiche in the microwave, cover it, then microwave for around 2 minutes. It will take around 15 minutes to reheat in the oven.

How to Reheat Quiche

Let’s start with a trade-off. The quickest way to reheat quiche is in the microwave, but the best way to reheat quiche is in the oven.

We recommend reheating quiche in the oven because it reheats evenly and guarantees the pastry will be nice and crunchy.

But if you want your quiche to be ready in a matter of minutes, then the microwave is your best option. Just don’t expect it to taste as good as it would if you had persevered and reheated it in the oven!

Anyway, here are the steps you need to follow to reheat your quiche in the microwave or oven:

How to Reheat Quiche in the Microwave

Your quiche will be ready in no time at all if you opt to reheat it in the microwave, and here’s what you need to do:

  1. Prepare Quiche
    Slice your quiche accordingly and place the slices you plan to reheat on a microwave-safe plate. If you’re planning to reheat an entire quiche, we recommend doing so in the oven.
  2. Cover
    Place a paper towel over the quiche and then add it to the microwave. 
  3. Reheat
    On medium power, reheat your quiche for two minutes. 
  4. Check for Doneness
    When the two minutes are up, remove your quiche from the microwave to check it for doneness. If you have one, use a thermometer to check the internal temperature of your quiche is at least 165F or 75C before it’s safe to serve. If your quiche isn’t quite there, return it to the microwave for a further thirty seconds.
  5. Serve and Enjoy
    Your reheated quiche will now be ready to serve alongside your chosen accompaniments.

How to Reheat Quiche in the Oven

If you’re not in a hurry, we recommend reheating your quiche in the oven. Here’s how to go about it:

  1. Preheat Oven
    Switch on your oven and preheat to 350F or 175C. 
  2. Prepare Quiche
    Line a suitably sized baking tray with greaseproof paper and place your quiche on top. Then, lightly cover your quiche with a sheet of tin foil. 
  3. Reheat
    Place your quiche in the centre of the oven for fifteen minutes. 
  4. Check for Doneness
    Remove your quiche from the oven when the time is up and check if it’s piping hot. If you have one, use a thermometer to check the internal temperature of the quiche is at least 165F or 75C before serving. If it’s not quite done, return your quiche to the oven and reheat for a further five minutes. 
  5. Serve and Enjoy
    Your reheated quiche is now ready to tuck into! 

How to Reheat Quiche Successfully

Here are our top 3 tips for reheating quiche. If you want things to go well then stick to these:

  • Use the Oven for a Whole Quiche – If you’re reheating a whole quiche instead of a portion, it’s best to reheat it in the oven. This is because the oven reheats your quiche more evenly than the microwave and will return much better results. 
  • Reheat Once – You should only reheat quiche once, as doing so several times can cause a stomach upset. Bear this in mind when storing your leftovers, as it makes sense to split your quiche into individual portions before keeping it in the fridge or freezer.
  • Reheat from Frozen – If you have frozen a quiche, then there’s no need to defrost it before reheating it. You will need to reheat a frozen quiche in the oven by following the abovementioned steps. You should increase the reheating time to about 30-40 minutes.

Is It Safe to Reheat Quiche?

Yes, it’s perfectly safe to reheat quiche. The most important thing to remember before reheating quiche is to store it correctly. For quiche to be safe to reheat, you must preserve it in the fridge or freezer.

A quiche left to sit at room temperature for longer than a couple of hours will not be safe to eat and should be discarded.
