Quiche really had its heyday in the ’70s and ’80s, which means that it can feel a bit…dated. But we think it deserves a comeback in a major way. It’s easy (especially if you don’t go with a traditional flour crust), makes great leftovers and is a fabulous way to use up whatever random bits of cheese or veggies are languishing in the back of your fridge. In fact, instead of relegating quiche to stuffy brunches and bridal showers, we think it deserves a spot in your weekly dinner rotation. Here are 19 of our favorites to get you started.
19 Quiche Recipes You Can (and Should) Eat for Dinner
Quiche With A Gluten-free Sweet Potato Crust
Who needs butter and flower when you have roasted sweet potatoes? We love that they’re gluten-free and packed with vitamins—and they add extra flavor to this savory pie.
Tomato, Basil And Caramelized Onion Quiche
We basically wait all year for fresh tomatoes for recipes like this. Serve with some simple mixed greens, and dinner is done.
Paleo Spring Vegetable Quiche
We’re not sure that cavemen were really eating sophisticated quiches with plenty of fresh spring vegetables, but we’re certainly glad that this one is Paleo-friendly. And we promise: No one will ever guess that the flaky, buttery crust is also gluten-free and grain-free.
Butternut Squash, Arugula And Bacon Quiche
Set your phones to portrait mode—this gorgeous, colorful quiche is ready for its Insta debut. Plus, we always love the salty-sweet combo of bacon and butternut squash.
Kale Quiche With Cheddar-rice Crust
For when you’re craving greens, but can’t face another lackluster kale salad. (Plus, we love the crispy, cheesy crust—which just happens to be gluten-free.)
Joanna Gaines’s Asparagus And Fontina Quiche
If we can’t get Joanna Gaines to come redecorate our kitchen, at least we can make her gorgeous quiche and pretend. With thin strips of asparagus and plenty of cheese, it’s basically everything we want in a meal.
Arugula And Cremini Quiche With Gluten-free Almond Meal Crust
We love the combo of rich egg custard and peppery arugula. And with a butter-free, gluten-free almond crust, it’s an extremely healthy choice for dinner.
Deep Dish Spinach And Prosciutto Quiche With Toasted Sesame Crust
This massive, deep-dish-style quiche is not for the faint of heart (although there are two cups of Greek yogurt in the filling, which basically makes it a health food, right?).
Simple Vegan Tofu Quiche
Quiche is usually the opposite of vegan-friendly. But thanks to the magic of tofu and a hash-brown crust, anything is possible.
Thanks to a store-bought pie crust (we won’t tell if you don’t), this quiche is super easy to throw together for a last-minute dinner. Feel free to add in any veggies you’re trying to use up.
Sausage And Red Pepper Quiche
Quiche has a reputation for being delicate. But this one—packed with sausage, peppers, wild rice and mozzarella cheese—is as hearty and satisfying as they come.
Bacon Mushroom Make-ahead Quiche
With no cheese and almond milk swapped in for regular, this quiche is totally dairy-free. We officially believe in miracles.
Jalapeño, Pepper Jack And Turkey Bacon Quiche With Potato Crust
Coterie member Monique Volz recommends making extra and packing it for breakfasts and lunches all week long, and we always do what she says. But with jalapeños and pepper jack cheese, this pie has a serious kick, so pack some cooling avocado slices to serve on the side.
Ham And Cheese Quiche
When it comes to quiche, it doesn’t get any more classic than ham and cheese. And sometimes, you just can’t mess with tradition.
