What Is A Quiche?
A quiche is savory dish of French cuisine, that is usually baked in a pie crust. A custard mixture of eggs and dairy (sometimes milk, heavy cream, sour cream – or a combination of them) are poured over a mixture of veggies, cheese, and meats.
Quiches are so versatile and really can be served for any meal, even at parties!
What You Will Love This Zucchini Quiche Recipe
- Quick And Easy – We are using a frozen pie crust here, so this comes together quickly.
- Versatile – You can switch or swap out certain ingredients if you don’t have them on hand. Instead of goat cheese, choose a different cheese like cheddar! Don’t like mushrooms? Leave them out!
- Make Ahead – Quiches are great to make the day ahead and then reheat when ready to enjoy. Perfect for parties and brunches!
- Leftovers – You can easily reheat this and eat it all week. Or try freezing and eating when you want in the coming months!
Ingredients Needed For This Zucchini Quiche
- Frozen Pie Crust – I love using frozen pie crusts, from the Maine Pie company. But you can always make your own if you want.
- Zucchini – We used about 1 cup of zucchini diced for this quiche.
- Sausage – We used vegan sausage, but you can substitute any type of cooked sausage you would like.
- Mushrooms – I just love the pairing of mushrooms with the zucchini!
- Goat cheese – Every great quiche needs cheese, and goat cheese is so creamy and delicious.
- Eggs – Of course you can’t have quiche without eggs. And this recipe calls for 4 eggs total.
- Milk – You will combine the eggs with the milk and sour cream to make a custard.
- Sour cream – This gets whisked with the eggs and milk to make the custard mixture that gets poured over the veggies and cheese.
How to Make Savory Cheesy Zucchini Quiche
When you hear the words: Savory Zucchini Quiche, what do you think? Do you think zucchini mushroom quiche? Or maybe zucchini cheese quiche or maybe zucchini tomato quiche? In this recipe, we used a vegan sausage. If you eat pork sausage feel free to sub that into this recipe! Make it work for you!
This easy zucchini quiche is going to win your heart over, I promise!
Place pie shell on a lipped baking sheet. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In the bottom of the pie shell, gently place mushrooms. Layer in your cooked sausage followed by diced zucchini.
Whisk together the eggs, milk and sour cream. Pour into crust.
Gently place goat cheese on top of quiche mixture
Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until a knife comes out clean from your quiche when inserted. Let sit for 5 minutes. (This helps to absorb any moisture.)
What Else Can I Add To My Zucchini Quiche?
Like I said, quiches are wonderfully versatile. So if there is something you don’t like or don’t have you can always swap it out. Here are a few suggestions of what you can use and add:
- Spinach or Kale
- Different cheese – like swiss, cheddar, or feta
- Herbs – Try dill or parsley
- Different Veggies – Onions (try caramelized! Yum!), Bell peppers (I would suggest cooking these first)
- Different Meats – Ham, smoked salmon, bacon – again just make sure these are pre-cooked
How Can I Tell When A Quiche Is Done?
A quiche should be silky and soft in your mouth if its been cooked properly. The center should be set, but just a little jiggly.
This quiche when done may appear a bit watery but the liquid will be absorbed. Just give it 5 minutes.
How To Store Quiche
Quiche will last in the fridge, covered for 3 to 4 days. Any longer and I recommend wrapping the quiche well and freezing it. This zucchini quiche will last about 2 to 3 months in the freezer.
Because quiche is a “custard” in a sense, be sure to refrigerate this after 2 hours at room temperature.
How To Reheat Quiche
You can definitely make this a couple days ahead of time, and then simply reheat. Or just to enjoy the leftovers! I recommend reheating in the oven.
Reheat at 325 for about 15 minutes, covered with foil.
