If making for a dinner meal, dinner rolls are a good option!
Tips for making quiche spinach:
- Make sure top is set-after removing the quiche from the oven, you will know if it is done or not by if the top is jiggling or not. If it is firm, then it is done. If it is still jiggiling, then it is not done and needs to go back in the oven for at least another 3-5 minutes. If quiche will not set after that, try turning up the oven temperature.
- Use big enough pie dish: using a decent sized pie dish will be useful in accounting for the spillage of the egg coming in and taking out of the oven. Will quiche rise? No quiche doesn’t rise but it is important to have a big enough pie dish to make sure there is no spillage going into the oven. If you do not have a deep pie dish, use a normal pie dish, put place on a 9 x 13 baking sheet as well. this will help stablize coming in and going out of the oven.
- Cook the vegetables first-if you are adding more vegetable than just the spinach, make sure to cook them first. This will prevent them from making your quiche watery because they will release the water while cooking in the skillet and not in the oven.
Variations of quiche without pastry:
- add a crust-quiche without crust is pretty good, but some people still prefer the crust option. Flaky pie crust is a great bottom for quiche!
- cream-this crustless ham quiche without cream uses milk instead. This cuts calories. If you do not have milk on hand, you can use cream or half and half instead.
- add more vegetables-what quiche is healthy? Well that depends what you put in it! This ham and spinach quiche is pretty healthy, but you can always add more vegetables to make it healthier. Mushrooms, tomatoes, green onion, artichokes, etc. are healthy ingredients to add. Even broccoli ham quiche tastes pretty good.
- different cheeses-you can use any cheese you want. You can even make this with cream cheese! Swiss, pepper jack, and sharp cheddar add a lot of flavor.

Can you make quiche with milk in advance
Yes, you can store ham and spinach quiche in the fridge until ready to eat. Quiche can be reheated from the fridge by using the microwave.
How to store spinach ham quiche:
- fridge-store this ham spinach quiche recipe in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week
- freezer-Will quiche freeze well? This recipe can be a freezer meal! I recommend not storing it for very long in the freezer though as it can get freezer burned due to the moisture of the eggs. Prepare as normal, let cook, then slice into serving sizes and freeze individually. Plastic wrap them if needed to seal out air.
