Who else LOVES quiche? It is one of my favorite meals, for breakfast, brunch, or dinner. I love that it’s easy to make ahead of time, it can be served hot or cold, and it’s totally delicious! I love to make an extra quiche and keep it in the fridge for the kids to grab in the morning for breakfast before they head off to school. It’s also incredibly versatile, and the perfect way to use up leftovers from the fridge.

This easy breakfast quiche recipe can be customized in a million ways! I’ve made all sorts of combinations, from leftover chicken and spinach, to asparagus and mozzarella. This ham and cheese quiche is one of my favorites! Ham and cheddar cheese is such a classic combination, and the flavors combine perfectly with the quiche base and the pie crust. It’s an easy breakfast that everyone will love!

Tip For Making Ham And Cheese Quiche

  • I like to make my own crust for the quiche using my favorite no-fail pie crust recipe, but you can easily use a store-bought crust instead.
  • The quiche filling is really the most important part! I like how creamy this breakfast quiche is with the half and half, but if you want to save a few calories, you can easily substitute milk instead. It’s delicious either way!
  • To know if your breakfast quiche is done cooking, stick a toothpick in the center of the quiche and pull it out. If it comes out clean, it’s ready to eat.

Can You Freeze Quiche?

Yes, you can definitely freeze this breakfast quiche recipe. I always like to make at least one extra quiche when I’m making this recipe and put it in the freezer for later. Wait until the quiche has completely cooled and then put the quiche in a large freezer bag. When you’re ready to use it, DO NOT thaw it first. Simply preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake it for between 20 – 25 minutes or until it is heated all the way through. You can store this in the freezer for up to 3 months.
