Ham and Gruyere Quiche Recipe

Quiche is sort of a holiday tradition in my home. After the busyness of preparing a ham for Christmas dinner, I want something easy for brunch the following day. This quiche recipe using Gruyere cheese is a perfect option.

I can make it up the night before and just reheat and serve the following day. Or, if I am feeling particularly worn out, a cold piece of quiche is almost as delicious as a warm one.

What cheeses are good for quiche?

There are lots of different types of cheese that will work for quiche. If you want to make a traditional Quiche Lorraine, you will want to use Swiss cheese. 

But, this recipe uses Gruyere which is a smooth melting type of Swiss cheese that’s made from cow’s milk and aged for at least 6 months. If you cannot find it, you can certainly substitute traditional Swiss cheese in the same amount.

Why a Ham and Gruyere crustless quiche?

My husband and I have been trying to watch our carbs. So, eliminating the crust from your quiche recipe is the easiest way to do that. And, it also makes this recipe gluten-free so that our daughter can have a slice.

If you prefer to have a crust when you make quiche, you can certainly do that. Just follow the directions in your favorite recipe that uses a crust. But, use the filling in this recipe.

What should I serve with quiche?

This recipe is really a complete meal. It has protein and vegetables. But, if you want to serve something alongside it, you can make a fruit salad. Or, just serve a big bowl of grapes and let everyone help themselves. 

Do you serve quiche hot or cold?

You should let your quiche cool for at least 20 minutes after you remove it from the oven. I really think that it tastes best when you refrigerate it overnight and serve it the next day.

But, if you like your quiche to be warm or hot, you can serve it after you allow it to cool slightly. It really all depends on how you like it.

Can you make quiche ahead of time and reheat?

Yes, you definitely can. That’s what makes this Ham and Gruyere Quiche recipe one of my favorite after holiday meals. Just make the quiche up the night before and place it in the refrigerator. 

Then, reheat each slice in the microwave for about two minutes. Check it for warmness and reheat for another 30 seconds if it’s not warm enough. It will really depend on the strength of your microwave.
