How to Make an Easy Summer Quiche Recipe

This summer quiche recipe is perfect for the lazy days of summer. One of the reasons I love quiche is that you can eat it either hot or cold. I cook a quiche in the evening when it’s cooler outside and then I eat it cold the next few days for lunch. I have an easy healthy meal available, and I don’t need to heat up the kitchen when it’s hot outside.

How to Make an Easy Summer Quiche Recipe - Garlic Scapes & Ham Quiche

Easy Summer Quiche Recipe

Quiche is a very versatile recipe to make. It’s basically a pie crust, eggs, half and half, cheese, and meat and/or vegetables. Exactly what I put into my quiche really depends on what’s growing in the garden and what I need to use up in the refrigerator. With this summer quiche recipe, I had garlic scapes to use along with some ham in the refrigerator.

  • 1 gluten free pie crust,
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 4 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup (about) chopped ham
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped garlic scapes (bud removed)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.
  2. Place the ham, garlic scapes, and cheese in the pie crust.
  3. Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl and pour over the pie crust.
  4. Place the quiche on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  5. Bake about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
  7. Refrigerate and enjoy either warmed up or cold.

You can easily create this same quiche recipe with broccoli, asparagus, scallions, or spinach for the vegetable. While I prefer Swiss for my quiche, I have in the past added a bit of cheddar or Monterey jack cheese when I had it. I enjoy quiche with ham and bacon, or leave the meat out and add more veggies instead.
