This Easy Quiche Recipe starts with a premade pie crust but no one has to know! It’s loaded with ham, cheese, and green onions and is the perfect easy breakfast or dinner!

You can really add anything you want to this easy quiche recipe — other vegetables, different cheeses or seasonings — but ham and cheese is our favorite way to do it up. I don’t know about you, but we love eggs for any meal of the day here. We’ll take any excuse to enjoy them for breakfast, lunch or dinner, and this easy quiche recipe definitely bridges the gap between all three. I love keeping my quiche recipes easy, and serving them up with lovely fruit or a beautiful fresh salad!

There are so many variations on a classic quiche recipe, but I wanted to keep things super simple this time around. We’re starting with a premade, refrigerated pie crust and filling it with all the good stuff!

You can definitely use a premade, frozen pie crust that has already been pressed into a disposable pan if you want to make this quiche even easier, but I like to roll mine out and bake it in one of my own pie plates. That way no one has to know about the shortcuts we took!

Tips for Making This Easy Quiche Recipe:

  • This recipe really couldn’t be any easier — start with a premade pie crust, and fill it with your favorite things, plus some eggs and milk.
  • A lot of quiche recipes you will find have precooked ingredients and require an extra pan plus additional prep time. We are using cooked, cubed ham and green onions in this recipe to ensure this easy breakfast quiche recipe comes together as quickly as possible!
  • Don’t forget to keep an eye on the quiche as it bakes — you don’t want the crust getting too brown on top as the eggs cook! If necessary, cover the outside ring of the crust with a bit of foil to prevent it from browning further.
  • If you aren’t a fan of the traditional pie crust, try making a Puff Pastry Quiche or these Easy Mini Quiche made with wonton wrappers!

Can You Make a Quiche Ahead of Time?

You bet! Once baked, cool the quiche for up to two hours on the counter, and then refrigerate. To reheat, cover the quiche with foil and bake for about at 325F (until just heated). Cooling it before refrigerating helps keep the crust a bit crisper.

How Do You Make a Crustless Quiche:

If you’re looking for a gluten-free alternative, or you’re just not a big fan of crust (hey, we all have our own preferences!), you can absolutely skip the crust and just pour the egg mixture right into the pan to make this into a crustless quiche recipe. It’s that easy!

Just don’t forget to grease the pie plate first because eggs can be tough to get out after they’re cooked!

Since you won’t need to watch the crust for signs of doneness, you will just bake a crustless quiche until the eggs are completely set all through the center.

  1. This recipe is AWESOME! I added mushrooms, onion, cheese and bacon bits and omitted the ham and green onions. I loved it and my friend and her family did too. Thank you for this recipe!5 stars

  2. I have made this recipe many times and sometimes switching to spinach and cheese, ham and cheese, bacon and cheese. I also included mince onion in all of them as well and it turns out perfect everytime and everyone loves it. I recommend you give it a try and its very quick to make.5 stars

    1. You can certainly blind bake the crust if you’d like. If needed, cover the edges with a pie shield or foil so it doesn’t brown too much. Let us know how it goes!

    1. A spinach quiche would be delicious! We will have to add it to our list of recipes to try ❤️

  3. As a seasoned of 86yrs old cook, I have never made quiche and have no idea why I was intimidated by trying until I tried your recipe!it was absolutely wonderful and now on my breakfast rotation! Thank you so so much!5 stars

  4. Wayyyyy too salty! I made everything exactly as the recipe states, except I thought that 3/4 teaspoons salt seemed too much, so I only put in 2/4 teaspoons and it was still really salty. I don’t know how anyone can eat this with the addition of another 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Next time I’m going to completely leave the salt out (especially since ham has a lot of salt already).

    1. Depending on the type of ham you are using you can definitely reduce or eliminate the salt to accommodate for that.

      1. This recipe is fantastic! Everyone loved it! So easy peasy. This quiche is really delicious and is great if you’re cooking for your family on a budget! Spend with pennies does not disappoint. : )5 stars

  5. I loved this!! I have made it with sausage or bacon, green onions, spinach, and different cheeses. Parmesan, Colby Jack, Swiss and sharp cheddar at different times! Some mixed and some just one kind, but I always add parmesan sprinkled on the top the last 10 minutes to add a special look and taste to the top. The refrigerated crusts that u roll out are amazing. I bought the food club brand instead of pillsbury and it was great!! I also use half and half or whole milk. My neighbors tried it and loved it!! Thank you.5 stars

  6. This was soo good! I used a shallot instead of green onion and will do that again. Do you think it would turn out just as good without the crust? Thank you!5 stars

    1. Hi Reba! You can definitely cook this without the crust, bake at the same temperature for 30-40 minutes. I would love to hear how it turns out for you!

  7. Fabulously easy! I was intimidated about making a quiche, but the instructions were straightforward. Dinner was on the table very fast. Used sautéed zucchini, red onion, and crumbled turkey sausage as a filling.

  8. Can I make this two days ahead i.e. make it today (Tuesday) and cook it on Thursday morning?
    If not what the best way to do this? I also wanted to add some broccoli so do I partially steam it first? or can I just add it cold?

    I do love all your recipes.

    1. If you would like to make ahead and bake later, I’d suggest storing the egg mixture separately and then add the egg mixture to the crust right before baking. As for the broccoli, I would steam it first for 3-4 minutes so it becomes tender when it’s cooked in the quiche. We would love to hear how it turns out for you, Ellen!

    1. I haven’t tried but it should freeze just fine. Wrap tightly and place in an airtight container for up to 3 months. To reheat, defrost in the fridge, cover the quiche with foil and bake at 325°F (until just heated).
