Our freezer-friendly savory Zucchini Quiche is a delicious way to use an abundance of zucchini. Loaded with zucchini and cheese and flavored with thinly sliced onion, it has just enough egg to bind it all together—it's the perfect quiche to try for family members who don't love eggs.
If not using a pre-prepared crust, prepare a pie plate with non-stick cooking spray. Roll out pie crust and prepare it in the pie plate, fluting the edges.
Sauté zucchini and onion in melted butter in a large fry pan until tendercrisp but not soft.
In a large bowl, whisk eggs together with next six ingredients. Stir in cheese and sautéed vegetables.
Spread mustard over bottom of pie crust and pour egg mixture on top.
Bake uncovered for 35-40 minutes or until set (you can check by inserting a knife into the center—if it comes out clean, the quiche is done). Cover crust edges with foil after 25 minutes if they are starting to brown.
Let stand for 5-10 minutes before cutting to allow time to cool.
This quiche freezes well, so it is perfect for using up loads of zucchini. There are two ways to freeze this quiche—only freeze the filling, or freeze the whole pie:
Prepare the sautéed vegetables and mix with the eggs and next six ingredients. Place in a freezer bag/container and label with the date and "Zucchini Quiche filling - Thaw in the refrigerator. Spread 1 tsp. dijon mustard in the bottom of an uncooked pie shell, add quiche filling, and bake at 400°F for 35-40 minutes or until set. Cover edges of crust with foil if they begin to get too brown."
Prepare the entire recipe up to the baking part, then freeze the filling in the shell and label with the date and "Zucchini Quiche - Thaw in the refrigerator and bake at 400°F for 35-40 minutes or until set. Cover edges of crust with foil if they begin to get too brown."
