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.

Repin this Super Breakfast Recipe
This quiche is quick and easy to make. This was the first quiche I’ve made and it was very good!
This quiche recipe is easy, fast to put together, and it’s delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect. I will definitely make this again (and probably again) and add some extra ingredients for variety. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
Delicious and versatile recipe! I chose to make individual quiches in ramekins with a brioche bread crust. I made it with fresh spinach, chopped tomatoes and swiss cheese. They made for a perfect lunch with a side salad.
I used a frozen pie crust, so I wish I had thought ahead to blind bake it for a few minutes. Otherwise, this was delicious! I c cook for me, but the leftovers would be good for meal prep breakfast or lunch! I’m already thinking about alternative fillings and this is good for cleaning out the fridge!
Easy and delicious recipe! This was my first time making quiche and I will be making it again for sure!
Excellent, have made several times! This time I did the shortcut and used Aldi frozen pie crust, did not pre-bake crust and it turned out awesome.
I made this recipe and it turned out great. I did add extra veggies like spring onion, spinach and green pepper. I will make it again.
I can’t believe I’ve never made a quiche before. So easy and so delicious!
My daughter and made this. Turned out very good. Husband even stated it was the best Quiche he has had.
I made this for my grandkids for breakfast. we did it crustless and added bacon with the ham. It was delicious, super easy and the kids loved it!
I love this recipe so much! I made it tonight before I knew it was the cooking challenge of the month but when I found out I sent a picture. Thanks for all the best recipes – including this one!
I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes Shannon!
I made this to enter the contest and took it for Mother’s Day brunch to my daughters everyone raved it was so good and it looked so pretty thank you for the wonderful and easy recipe.
This is a great recipe! I make it often for brunch. Since we are low carb we make it crustless most of the time, but it is a winner either way. This a good jumping-off point to make your own changes like adding more veggies, but if you do make additions the bake time may increase.
Hi! I will be making this for Mother’s Day. I’m going to make it the night before and then reheat- about how long does it take to reheat at 325?
We find about 15 minutes is a good starting point when reheating. I can’t wait for you to try this Ashley!
Made the recipe exactly as written (except for the pie crust, I used frozen) and it was excellent! And so quick and easy to put together!
I’m sure the original recipe is delicious. I put cooked Turkey bacon, zucchini, spinach, mozzarella, and garlic in mine. I had no milk so substituted butter and water and it came out great! So many variations you can do. I cooked mine for 45 minutes.
Good recipe, only thing I would change is to let it cool for 20 min instead of 5-10. Part of it in the middle was still a little too runny, so it came out from the rest of the pie when I cut a piece.
I made a “use what you have on hand” quiche with bacon, spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, red & yellow peppers. Although I did include shredded Swiss cheese in the pie along with the eggs, I did not add cheese in top. Of course, I used a frozen pie crust for simplicity.
I love a quiche along with fresh fruit for breakfast or lunch. Tasty and healthy.
The beauty of quiche is that it is so flexible in that it can be made with whatever ingredients are available or to suit personal taste – with or without a crust. You just can’t go wrong with a quiche. Quiche also can be divided and frozen for multiple meals later.
I loved it. I just wish all recipes have the potassium mg. That way I can balance what I could eat the rest of the day. I have kidney disease and need to follow a low potassium diet. But like I said it was awesome Used unsweetened almond milk and Colby Jack cheese. It’s low in potassium
That sounds delicious Laurie! For accurate nutritional information we recommend using a nutrition app like MyFitnessPal and inputting the ingredients and brands that you used in the recipe.
