Mother’s Day is around the corner. I’m curious, what kind of traditions do you have in your family?

Around here we start the day by going to church, and usually end up going out for brunch afterwards.

Dinner is typically not as important, as we have usually spent the day cleaning the yard and gardening, so we tend to fend and make salad or sandwiches.

In the midwest, Mother’s Day is the well known “safe” date to start planting gardens! Threats of frost are now in our past.

Admittedly, I am really going to miss my gardens this year. Since moving from Ohio back to Illinois, the property we live on just isn’t garden friendly. We have big beautiful mature trees, that seem to offer a wonderful shade to our yard, yet not enough sunlight for a garden to thrive.

Back in Ohio, I had a huge strawberry patch, raspberries, and three raised beds filled with vegetables and herbs! While I am going to miss all the fruits of the soil, tending to those huge gardens was a daily chore.

This first year I may enjoy the time not spent raking, weeding, etc….yet I will for sure miss all the vegetables that my gardens gave us.

Vegetables that would be perfect in today’s quiche!

How to make a Garden Veggie Quiche

Normally when I make a big quiche I use a pie crust. And meat. We love a sausage and spinach combo!

But after making some delicious mini quiche with puff pastry a few weeks ago, I received several messages wondering if those mini quiche can be made into a larger quiche.

The answer is YES. And you can use any fillings you desire. Whether you love meat or just veggies…or even a combo of both, fill it up!

I used a combo of broccoli, peppers, and mushroom in today’s recipe. It turned out delicious. I think I know what I’m requesting for brunch on Mother’s Day.

Can Quiche be made ahead of time?

Yes! You can make this Veggie Quiche recipe the day before. Store in refrigerator until ready to heat and serve.

How to reheat Quiche

Bake leftover quiche in a 325 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Just until warmed.

Quiche is normally served at room temperature.

Can you Freeze Quiche?


Bake your quiche and cool completely.

Wrap quiche in plastic wrap and an airtight container or ziploc freezer bag.

Make sure to use a “freezer to oven” safe pie plate…whether it’s metal or disposable is best.

Cook frozen quiche in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes. You may need to put pie shield on the crust (or wrap with foil) so the edges don’t burn.

Comments & Reviews

  1. In the mid-1970’s quiche was a mainstay for our evening meal. We improvised with whatever add-ins happened to be around – bacon, leftover ham or cooked chicken, most any vegetable, and cheese, glorious cheese. And then time moved on and our habits changed. Now my husband and I are in our 60’s and prefer something a little lighter in the evening, while we also feed our vegetarian son and grandson. So quiche has reentered the weekly rotation. I’m not a good scratch piecrust baker, so this idea to use puff pastry is most welcome.

    1. Hi can you suggest how do I do puff pastry with whole wheat flour as I avoid refined flour due to health issues furthermoreI am also vegetarian and would like eggless quiche recipe.

  2. We always do brunch for Mother’s Day too! Sometimes we make it homemade, but most of the time we drive  over an hour to our favorite brunch restaurant. They have the BEST blueberry coffee cake I’ve ever tasted with the most addictive cinnamon streusel! But of course, we always load up on eggs and veggies before diving into that… Like your gorgeous quiche!

  3. This is the first year I’ve lived back near my family in 8 years, so I’ll be looking forward to making brunch for my mom on Mother’s Day. I love this loaded quiche. Looks perfect for Mother’s Day and every other day too!

  4. Yay for warm weather for you guys, but boo for warm weather for us (it gets to 115 here in lil palm springs, ca) This quiche looks delicious. I’ve always wanted to make a quiche, but don’t like the pie crust aspect. This changes everything for me. Whoo Hoo! 

  5. This quiche looks amazing. I’m planning my garden as we speak. I can’t wait for fresh veggies.

  6. So perfect for Mother’s Day brunch! Love that you used puff pastry for the crust!

  7. I don’t make quiche enough! It needs to change because this just made me very hungry! Pinned! 

  8. Veggie quiche is one of my all-time favorites! I’ll eat it for brunch or lunch or dinner. Or all three! How can you argue with pie crust?
    This one looks especially good. I’m glad it’s finally warm enough in the Midwest to garden!

  9. Awh! It would be hard for me to not have a garden, but at least you made the most of the one that you had in Ohio! Hopefully there’s a local farmer’s market where you can get the fresh fruits and veggies! The quiche looks fantastic. We’re huge quiche fans in my house and usually make it for dinner with somem baked sweet potatoes. 🙂
