Quick & Easy Prep

One of my favorite things about this delicious air fryer quiche is you can make it ahead of time! Mix the ingredients the night before and refrigerate. Pour the quiche filling into a tart pan or ceramic quiche dish.

Pop it into the drawer of the air fryer when you wake up, and in 25 minutes, breakfast is waiting! Or, enjoy it for dinner with my Strawberry Pecan Salad.

With a short cooking time and gluten free ingredients, this easy quiche recipe is protein-rich and makes a healthy keto dish.

You can serve it as a mini quiche or cook it in a large bowl, silicone muffin cups, or cake pan. It’s one of those delicious recipes that’s great for week days or a special occasion.

5 – Wrap bowl with parchment paper or aluminum foil and set cooking temperature to 325 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Eggs cook better at a lower temperature.

*TIP* Air fryers cook differently, so yours may need more or less time depending on the size and depth of your dish.

7 – Let rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Homemade Quiche Ideas

Using the air fryer is a great way to create easy breakfast meal prep. Making a crustless quiche, or frittata, is simple and fun!

Here are a few ideas on how to create your own special homemade recipe…

  • Quiche Lorraine – bacon, shredded cheese (gruyere or white cheddar), onion, black pepper, nutmeg
  • Veggie and Cheese Quiche – roasted vegetables, chives, feta cheese, tomatoes, leftover potatoes, mushrooms
  • Broccoli Quiche – broccoli florets, cheddar cheese, red peppers, onions
  • Meat Lovers – ham, sausage, bacon and havarti cheese

Storage and Reheating

  • Store leftover quiche in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat leftovers in the microwave for 30 to 60 seconds until warmed throughout.
  • To reheat in the air fryer, set temperature to 390 degrees for 2 to 3 minutes.

Recipe FAQS

How do you know when quiche is set?

Use a knife and insert it slightly off center. If it comes out clean, it’s set. If it’s watery or anything clings to the knife, it needs to be cooked longer.

What is the secret to a good quiche?

If you have a fluffy egg filling, it will turn out perfectly every time. My trick to making the filling fluffy is to add sour cream instead of heavy cream. It adds richer flavor and creates a very creamy custard.

How do you keep quiche from over browning?

You can wrap your dish with aluminum foil or parchment paper to prevent it from getting too brown. Be sure to remove the foil or parchment paper during the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking to achieve a golden brown crust.

Serving Ideas

Quiche is a favorite dish to serve with roasted vegetables, a mixed green salad, or fruit garnish. Serve it with Air Fryer Potato Wedges for a quick lunch!

It’s perfect for special events like baby showers, bridal brunches and Mother’s Day brunch when served with Raspberry Mimosas or Sangria.

  • Fold in spinach and stir well.
  • Spray oven safe dish or pan that fits in the basket of air fryer with cooking spray.
  • Pour egg mixture into an oven safe dish.

Notes

  • Flat and shallow dishes are a better choice because they cook quicker and ensure the middle will set. If you divide this recipe into individual 4 inch ramekins, they will cook in about 15 minutes. 
  • Be sure to cover and seal your dish with aluminum foil before cooking to avoid over browning.

    Quiche in an air fryer? I never thought that was possible! This recipe sounds really good. I like that it’s crustless and keto. I’ll be making it for breakfast tomorrow.

    1. Thanks, Lorna! This quiche is so easy to make in the air fryer. You can add more toppings and make your own creation! 🙂

  2. Question about the quiche in the air fryer do you cover and seal it with foil? Or just cover the outside of the dish?

    1. Hi Janet. You cover the bowl and seal it with foil. Thanks for the question! I’ll clarify it in the directions.
