Recipe for quiche with a whole-wheat crust

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.

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!

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).

    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.

  2. 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.

    1. 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

    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!
