Absolutely delicious, although, it did take longer in my slow cooker. I did an hour on low then 30 minutes on high.
Can you freeze quiche ? If not how long would it last in the fridge ?
Sure can freeze them .. just wrap well to avoid any frost burn etc
I’d keep in fridge for up to 3 days myself 🙂
I made this tonight because I had all of the above ingredients in my home; and personally I was stumped on what to make for dinner. Not only did my hubby LOVE IT but he told me it was the BEST quiche he’s ever had. Not.to be out done by my 6 yr old who licked her plate clean and begged me to make it tomorrow. 10 outta 10 in our home!
So good. Froze it and now the texture isn’t right…
Hi, just wondering please if I make this in the Aldi slow cooker ( the white one) would I probably put it on high as this cooker seems to cook very low. Or would I just leave it on low for longer. Thanks so much.
Yes in that one I would use high and just keep an eye on it to see when done 🙂
cooked this tonight and unfortunately after an hour I needed to up the heat to high…still runny in centre after 2 hours so finished off for 15 minutes in the oven. Not too sure where I went wrong. I didn’t put any meat in only veges. Tastes good tho!
Was yours a large cooker?
The smaller the area the thicker the quiche and the longer the cooking time needed 🙂
Some also cook slower than others but once you know the time of yours you’ll be able to easily adjust in future 🙂
What a fantastic dish, we love it. The only thing I added was about 1 teaspoon
of crushed garlic. Having it tonight with salad for dinner, but we had to have a
sneaky taste. This will stay on the menu for sure love it!!!
Tasted fantastic. Mine took 2hrs to cook but used eggs from my chickens which are larger than store bought 😀
Very easy and quite delicious. We served with hot chips and garlic bread. Will make this regularly for a fast slow cooker meal 🙂
Thank you, thank you, thank you Paulene for sharing this recipe. This will be a regular quick and easy dinner in our house served with salad! So full of flavour!
Was very tasty indeed. We served with chips and salad and it was a lovely .will definitely make again. My slow cooker is not that hot so I had done 1 hour on low and it was still very funny but then clicked onto high a d it was done in half an hour.
I made this last night, and added a heap of vegies – mushrooms, capsicum, grated zucchini, red onion, baby spinach. I also added a generous handful of cheese along with the other ingredients and used cream instead of milk. It took around 2 and a half hours on high to cook, which would be because of the added ingredients. Very happy with it . I added the baby spinach on top and tried to stir it through which wasn’t very successful as I had baking paper lining my slow cooker to assist me when it came to removing the quiche.
Every half hour or so I came back to it and used a fork to press the spinach into the egg mixture which assisted with it wilting.
Once cooked, I grated some more cheese over the top and left that to melt. It is so yummy! I made it with the intention of being an easy breakfast to take to work and heat up and it works perfectly. Thank you – great recipe.
First time using RH 3.5 lt tonight … my quiche isn’t looking like setting after 2 hrs on low so have now switched to high
It sounds like yours cooks a little slow so yep you can definitely safely do this one on high 🙂
Paulene, when you say thinly sliced shallots, do you mean the tiny brown onion like shallots or are you referring to spring onions? Thanks.
The green long leaf sort 🙂 My woolies call them Shallots but others call them spring onions. No actual onion part, just green x
My slow cooker I think is too big to try this for two oo us I like left overs this but might be too much I might try a metal dish inside on top of crunched foil balls. Anyone tried this?
I made this yesterday for the first time , it was so easy and very moist compared to cooking it in the oven .
I added tomatoes, grated cheese , English mustard and chillies for a little spice ..
Pauline do you put the baking paper just on the base of the slow cooker, and whats the tea towel thing you do pls.
Yes on the base and up the sides a little too – it makes it easy to lift out then too 🙂
Tea Towel Trick << details there
Very easy to make. Very quick around 1.5 hours on high . Very very delicious!!! My version had 8 eggs, cream , ham, cheese, tomatoes, spring onion, and cucumber!! This will now be a weekly regular dish for us as even mr fussy won’t eat anything healthy ate it and lived it! 5/5
Got this ready to go on later this morning for lunch but as we have an annaphylaxis to mushrooms added a grated carrot and zucchini
Yumm loved how easy it is to make 😍 waiting for 2 hours was terrible as I could smell the quiche my tummy was rummberling lol 10/10 😃
It lived up to its name. So quick and so easy. And best of all, very tasty!! 1.5 hours on low. I will definitely do this again!!
This is by f as r the best quiche recipe I’ve ever come across
Does it freeze well?.
Have to make this It looks yummy
Hi. Made this today and tasted wonderful. Only problem we had was when lifting it out the greaseproof paper disintegrated and the quiche broke into pieces. I used a tea towel under the lid but the paper seemed to be wet so it naturally gave way when lifting out. I used a large frying slice to support bottom s I lifted but it didn’t really help as it still broke into a hundred pieces and resembled scrambled egg. Like I said earlier it did taste amazing though. Any suggestions on how to get it out in one piece please?
I make sure the paper is long enough at the start to give a good grip to lift out and I’ve never had it rip I must say and I make these all the time? I also recommend good quality paper like Glad brand is what I use
I’ve just tried this, it was soooooooo easy and it turned out awesome!!! I added some cherry tomatoes & zucchini. I think this is definitely becoming a regular!!!!
Hi Pauline super keen to be trying sc quiche today. I have a multicooker too like the one you reviewed and was wondering if you’ve tried making it in that on sc setting and if it worked well too?
No reason you can’t slow cook it in a multi. The only issue being some don’t allow the tea towel trick due to lid locking – unsure if yours is one of these or not.
will be trying this in the weekend
Delicious u can add anything to it really. It took less than 2 hours to cook. Will definitely do again
Wonderful the hole family loved this, I added baked potatos to it left over meat from nigth before kids did not even no it was in there. Best ever I’m doing this again thank you.
This recipe is is so versatile. I had to leave out the capsicum and onion ( due to my visitors allergies) but added tasty cheese , herbs and salami. Absolutely delicious 😋
A winner again. Lots of healthy and handy snacks. I fried mushroom, red onion, bacon, 2 chiilis and capsicum (all diced) in oil with minced garlic, added it to the egg/cream mix and it needed about 1hr45m. Really yummy outcome!!
Really easy to make and held together really well. I froze some for school lunches and it was still tasty. Nice, simple recipe that makes life easier!
I made this today and delicious!!! I used 9 eggs because that’s what I had in the fridge, and used thickened cream instead of milk. Red onion, mushrooms, red capsicum, ham, cheese and spring onions and wow!!! You could literally use up all those veges in the bottom of the bin and have a delicious meal.
Making this for a party on Saturday. I’m going to add some cheese too.
Such an easy, quick recipe to follow. Made a couple of small adjustments as my family aren’t keen on too many veges in their quiche. Made it with bacon, corn and cheese and a dash of mixed herbs. Cooked for 2hrs on high in a sunbeam sear secret chef lined with baking paper. Was perfect 🙂 gobbled up by the family in no time
I just bought a 6.5 litre SC from Kmart North Lakes Brisbane for $39 on the weekend. Cooked an amazing Thai Beef Massaman curry which I’ll share soon.
In the meantime I’m going to make a version of this Quiche recipe this weekend and use up a few vegetables that have been sitting in the fridge for a week or so. Also I’ll give the potato bake you showed on studio 10 this morning.
You have a new follower. Cheers
Look forward to hearing all about your future creations! 🙂
Tried this for school lunches and is a hit, have added a bit of salami to the current batch, yet to be taste tested 🤞🏻Threw in what we had in the fridge and added cheese to the top
This is an awesome base recipe I have made before. My version today was
no bacon….used leftover ham about 2 cups diced I think. Didn’t measure. Had 4 sticks of fresh asparagus so chopped that. Added left over salami. 1 tsp garlic, 1/2 cup grated cheese then after 1 hour sprinkled a bit more grated cheese on top. It was so yummy.
Thanks again for all the great ideas and recipes. 👌😊😍
made this quiche today, took 2 hours and 20 minutes in the slow cooker and it does not disappoint…
