While quiche is a delectable dish that you may want to down in one sitting, most often than not, there is always leftover that needs to be stored for eating at a later date. Most people do not know how to store their quiche, which means any leftover ends up getting wasted.
How Do You Keep Leftover Quiche?
You have to store your leftover quiche in the fridge. You can leave it in the baking tin or transfer it to a storage tin, Tupperware, or a Ziploc bag. You can also subdivide it and store it in portions to be eaten over a 3-4-day period.
If frozen, you can store it for up to 4 months. The extent of freshness depends on the ingredients stored and how soon you place it in the refrigerator after cooking it.
Can You Reheat Quiche In A Microwave?
Yes. But it takes a certain level of finesse as the eggs can turn rubbery if you do not do it correctly. First, you need to remove the quiche from the refrigerator and let it get to room temperature. Then set your microwave to a gentle warming setting to prevent them from overcooking.
Then reheat the quiche in 30-second intervals and keep checking to avoid overheating them. Do not heat it for longer than 3 minutes as it will change the texture and lose its flavor. You may need to spice it again to make up for the loss in taste.
How To Reheat Refrigerated Quiche
The best way to reheat leftover quiche is by using an oven. Place it in a 350 Fahrenheit oven for 15-20-minutes, and your quiche will be ready for consumption. If your quiche is frozen, you need to let it thaw at room temperature first before you can warm it. You may warm it up directly from the freezer, but this will alter the texture and flavor.
Cover your quiche with an aluminum foil to prevent the top from getting burnt. For a frozen quiche, you may have to reheat it for 30-35 minutes. Allows it to sit for a few minutes before removing the foil and serving it. To confirm doneness, you can check for an internal temperature of 160 Fahrenheit.
