There are a few recipes that will always remind me of holidays. They remind me of the family members who make them every year and memories of many family gatherings. This brings us to make ahead and freeze holiday recipes: quiche

Gather ingredients. I had left over Swiss and gruyere cheeses from a batch of yummy spaetzle that we made and it was already grated, so that made for less prep work.

Bake thawed pie crust. Per the box directions, the pie crust bakes for 10 minutes. Make sure to follow the instructions for your crust.

While crust is baking, complete the remaining prep.

Chop veggies. We happened to have asparagus and mushrooms, which make for yummy quiche filling. Bacon, ham, spinach and leeks are all great in quiche as well.

Sautee veggies. White onions, red onions, shallots, or green onions add great flavor to the veggies.

Whisk eggs.

Add ingredients to egg mix.

Pour mix in pie crust. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until eggs are set. I test the middle of the quiche with a toothpick, much like you would a cake.

If you decide to freeze your quiche, don’t thaw before baking. Pop it straight into the oven to avoid a soggy crust.

You can freeze the entire pie pan of quiche or slice it into smaller sections.
