Notes
Reheating Cooked Quiche:
If you’re planning on reheating your cooked quiche there are a few steps you want to make sure you follow after baking to ensure the quiche reheats well.

1.After baking quiche allow it to cool completely ( on a wire rack) before covering with plastic wrap. ( Covering it while the quiche is still warm could cause condensation to form = soggy crust). Refrigerate until ready to serve.

2.When ready to reheat- Place quiche on countertop and allow to warm while you preheat oven (or toaster oven) to 325F

3.Remove plastic wrap and cover with aluminum foil- bake for 8-10 minutes or until warm throughout.

4.If warming up just one slice of quiche- wrap in foil and bake for 8-10 minutes
