Expert Tips for Reheating Quiche

Quiche is a delicious egg-based dish that’s perfect for brunch or dinner. But like many foods, it’s best when served freshly made and warm. Luckily, there are several easy methods to reheat leftover quiche and restore its just-baked taste and texture.

Reheating Quiche in the Oven

The oven is one of the best ways to evenly reheat a whole quiche or slices.


  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F.
  2. For a whole quiche, place it uncovered on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. For quiche slices, arrange them evenly on the lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake the quiche for 10-15 minutes if reheating a whole quiche or 8-12 minutes for slices. The quiche should be hot throughout with a lightly browned top when done.
  4. Let the quiche rest for 5 minutes before cutting and serving. The filling will firm up as it cools slightly.

Pro Tip: Cover the edges of the crust loosely with foil if they start to get too brown before the interior is hot.

How Long to Reheat Quiche in Oven?

  • Whole quiche: 10-15 minutes at 325°F
  • Slices of quiche: 8-12 minutes at 325°F

Reheating quiche in the oven brings out its fresh-baked taste and crispy crust.

Reheating Quiche in the Microwave

The microwave provides a quick method to reheat quiche slices or portions.


  1. Place the quiche slices or portions on a microwave-safe plate.
  2. Microwave on HIGH in 30 second intervals until heated through, about 1-2 minutes total depending on amounts.
  3. Allow to sit for 1 minute before eating so the filling can firm up.

How long to Reheat Quiche in Microwave?

  • Quiche slices: Microwave in 30 second intervals on HIGH for 1-2 minutes.
  • Quiche portions: Microwave in 30 second intervals on HIGH until hot, about 1-2 minutes.

The microwave can make the quiche crust soggy so oven or toaster oven reheating is best for whole pieces or slices.

Reheating Quiche in the Toaster Oven

A toaster oven provides quick, crisp reheating results for quiche slices.


  1. Place the quiche slices on the toaster oven rack.
  2. Toast at 350°F for 4-6 minutes until hot and lightly browned on top.
  3. Let cool slightly before serving so the filling can set up.

Reheating Quiche in an Air Fryer

An air fryer is a great way to reheat quiche slices so they become crispy.


  1. Brush or spray the quiche slices lightly with oil.
  2. Place in the air fryer basket in a single layer, avoiding overlap.
  3. Air fry at 350°F for 4-5 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  4. Check often to avoid overbrowning.
  5. Let cool slightly before serving.

Common Reheating Questions

How to reheat a whole quiche?

How long does reheated quiche last?

What’s the best way to reheat a quiche lorraine?

A quiche lorraine with its bacon and onion filling can be reheated the same as other quiches. Use the oven or toaster oven for best results.

How do you keep the crust crispy when reheating quiche?

Brush the crust lightly with milk or butter before reheating to add moisture. Or reheat at a high temp (400°F) for the first few minutes to crisp the crust before lowering temp.

Should quiche be covered or uncovered when reheating?

Uncovered is best to prevent the custard from getting soggy and to crisp the crust.


  • Let the quiche rest for 5-10 minutes after reheating so the custard can firm up before slicing.
  • Reheat any quiche toppings like bacon or veggies separately to retain texture and crispness.
  • Use a thermometer to check the center for 165°F when reheating a whole quiche.
  • Prevent drying by reheating quiche for only the minimum recommended time.
  • Freeze individual slices to pull out and reheat as needed.
