Whenever I serve quiche, both of my girls always ask for seconds (which can make any mom’s day!). They love to help me make this recipe…my 5-yr-old can practically mix and pat out the crust all by herself (if she can do it so can you!) while my 2-yr-old happily stirs the egg mixture.
Whole Wheat Quiche With Crust Recipe
Of all the recipes for quiche crust I’ve tried, this one is the easiest to freeze and bakes up so easily! The decision to go whole wheat here wasn’t just to pack some added nutrition into a classic breakfast staple, the texture is better off for it. Sink your fork into this whole wheat quiche crust to see just how savory and adaptable it is!
It’s good leftover the next day too, and you can also try to freeze it once it has been baked. In my opinion it is not quite as spectacular after it has been frozen, but it is still pretty tasty and incredibly convenient! For large families on-the-go, this is one you’re going to want to add to the recipe book.
We decided to make our whole-wheat crust quiche half ham and cheese and half goat cheese and tomato the other night, but there are many tasty things that you can add to this dish depending on your mood (and the contents of your fridge). Quiche is one of those dishes where you can modify it a hundred times over, and still find yourself looking for new ways to experiment!

Can you Substitute the Butter in This Recipe for Quiche Crust?

Awesome base recipe! Needed a recipe without a pre-bake crust, in lack of pie weights or beans. Came out very tasty. Used sauteed butternut squash with red onions and garlic plus feta cheese as a filling. Only had 2% milk, so added some sour cream for some oomph. Love quiche for those days when you’re almost out of supplies but don’t wanna run to the store.
Glad this was a great base for a delicious quiche! – Nicole
I’ve been making this quiche for close to a decade now. Always such an easy and satisfying dish. I skimmed some comments but didn’t find an answer to this: Can I freeze the baked quiche? I use fresh spinach, fresh bell peppers and onions with cheese. I was concerned that the moisture in these might mess it up.
We recommend storing it in the freezer immediately after being baked (after it cools) instead of after being in the fridge for a couple days. – Nicole
For beginners you should mention how much extra ingredients can be added. a 1/2 cup, 2 cups?
This crust = incredible! I feel like such an idiot for buying crusts (far inferior and actually more time consuming) for so long! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! One question, has anyone tried substituting olive oil for the butter? Thanks in advance for any help w this question!
Our readers have tried with coconut oil and it turns out great, we haven’t tried with olive oil yet. – Nicole
So tried w canola oil and came out great! Next stop olive oil! This quiche is a big winner in our house…
Awesome! Glad it came out great for you. – Nicole
