Quiche

If I made my own quiche lorraine, can I freeze it once it has cooled?

Quiche - Freezing



You most certainly can.

I make leek and stilton quiches, make them as individual mini quiches and one big one, which uses eggs and double cream.

All you do, is cook as per recipe.

allow to cool completely in the tin(s) then remove from tin - and open freeze, once frozen, wrap in foil or a container and label.

then to reheat, place the frozen quiche on a baking sheet and bake 160c for 15-20 mins for mini quiches, up to 45 mins for a 24cm quiche - until HOT through.... you may need to cover the quiche half way through cooking to prevent over browning.

quiche - freezing

meant to add - it will keep for 3 months in an ancient freezer like mine - or if you have an all singing all dancing frost free freezer it will keep for 6 months.

Thanks

Hi Sam,thanks very much for your reply. I love quiche but my family aren't big lovers of it. At least that means I can now make one and freeze the rest for when I would like some more.Many thanks for your reply.Amanda.

Quiche - Amanda


As you like Quiche (we love it), have you thought rather than making a big one approx 24 cm, whatever recipe you use for your quiche flavouring will make 6 small ones in mini tart tins.

then you can a have a whole one all to yourself. lol. and have 5 more in the freezer ready to go whenever you fancy.

400g worth of shortcrust makes 6 minis - my tins are 12cm in diameter across the top and 11and half at the bottom, and are loose bottomed, i got them in tesco a couple of years ago, think the brand name is Tala, or something similar to that.
