Tips for adding vegetables to quiche
One concern many have about cooking these quiche muffins is that the vegetables will make them too soggy and they won't set well. While this is true for many vegetables, it is not for the ones chosen. Below are some tips for how to make sure your vegetable quiche muffins turn out fantastic.
- Never use frozen vegetables in your quiches. As they thaw, they will release excess water and create consistency issues.
- Make sure to dice, shred, or chop your vegetables into small pieces so they cook evenly along with the egg.
- Add different vegetables for variety. Spinach, broccoli, and asparagus pair well with egg.
Storing and reheating your vegetable quiche muffins
Making these ahead of time is what makes them one of my favorite additions to our breakfast routine. The vegetable quiche recipe is super simple and so easy to make in bulk batches. It ends up being ideal for those who like to prep meals ahead for weeks at a time.
- Before refrigerating, allow the vegetable quiche muffins to cool completely. Storing them when still hot can create condensation in your container which leaves you with less than desirable textures.
- Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week in the refrigerator or up to 4 months in the freezer.
- If storing in the refrigerator, line your container with a cloth or paper towel to absorb any excess moisture - this helps when reheating to retain texture.
- If freezing, wrap them individually so it is easy to grab just a few at a time to thaw overnight before reheating.
- I believe heating in the toaster or oven gives the best texture and flavor. Heat at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes works great.
