Yes, quiche is a very freezer friendly dish. Make sure you use an oven to freezer safe pie plate. Metal or disposable pie plates are best. Bake and cool the quiche, then double wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and foil or a freezer bag.
Reheat your frozen quiche in the oven at 350 degrees until warmed through (about 25 minutes). You may need to cover the crust with foil or use a pie shield to prevent it from overbrowning.
Heavy cream is our preference for perfect egg custard texture. However, you can substitute whole milk or half-and-half if needed.
