Crock Pot Quiche


One of the quickest and easiest meals you can make is quiche. It is simple, contains everyday ingredients, and is easy to change up with what you have on hand.

Today for Crock Pot Monday I am sharing a simple slow cooked quiche. You can keep this very basic with just sausage or ham and cheese, or you can add in mushrooms, onions, peppers, and other ingredients.

This is not a cook all day type of recipe though. This is a cook for a few hours type of meal. Eggs in the crock pot for eight hours would not be a good thing. Cooked for just a couple of hours though they are delicious!

I have often heard that quiche is more of a girls type meal and that guys don’t really enjoy it. In my house that is not true at all. Yes, the girls love quiche, but so do the guys. My husband doesn’t mind eating it for a simple dinner as long as the quiche contains meat. So, I would love to hear what your family will eat.

Do you serve quiche to the guys in your house?

  1. Yummy! Yes, my husband loves quiche! I make a crustless quiche for dinner all the time… varying what I use as add-ins. It is very similar to this recipe. It does go in the oven, so come summer, we do not eat it as much. I never thought to do it in the crockpot! Yea! Now we can have it year round! Thank you soooooo much!

  2. By the way, have you tried freezing this? If so, does it do well? And, what size crock pot do you suggest for this recipe?

    • I have never frozen this, so I am not sure on that. I have found some quiche recipes freeze well and others not so well. I use about a 5 qt crock pot, I think any size would work, you might just have to adjust the time a little bit. I hope that helps

  3. This sounds good. When using a gf substitute, would it need xanthan gum? I get confused as to when to add, and when it’s not necessary in recipes. Thanks.

    • For something like this I usually leave the xanthan gum out. You need it for baked goods, but not usually for something like quiche. However, if you blend already contains it, I don’t think it would hurt either. I hope that helps.

  4. Oh my gosh – yes! As a matter of fact, Ham Quiche is on the schedule for tonights dinner! I wrote up my weekly menu and it was on the counter and both my husband and son saw it and I heard a collective “YUM – Quiche!”

    Funny even though I use my slow cooker all the time, I never once thought to try to make a quiche in it.

  5. Have you ever tried lightening this up? I wonder if lower fat cottage cheese and shredded cheese would too adversely affect the taste…

    • I think lower fat cottage cheese would work fine. In fact I have probably used it, because I just use whatever kind I have on hand. I have not used low fat cheese much, but if it works in other recipes for you, I say try it and see.

  6. Perfect timing, Lynn! We were just having quiche for dinner tonight and I was thinking that quiche would be a good option to send to school for the teacher appreciation lunch, but I didn’t want to have to bring it in mid-day. A crockpot version is the perfect solution. I can bring it in uncooked, plug it in, and it should be ready for lunchtime. Thanks!

  7. Hi Lynn, can you tell me what size of crockpot you used for this? Maybe you could just measure the width for me.

    Thanks!
