Ingredients for this Tomato Quiche Recipe

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Pie Crusts – I use store-bought pie crust which is a great option if you aren’t much of a baker (raises hand). A par-baked pie shell saves time and tastes great if you don’t want to go through the hassle of making a homemade crust. Or you could choose to make a crustless quiche, or a frittata.
  • Tomatoes – I used vine-ripened whole ripe tomatoes, sliced thinly for my quiche. You can use cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes, any heirloom tomatoes that are in season. The oven adds a great char to sliced tomatoes, giving this dish a roasted tomato quiche vibe.
  • Fresh Basil Leaves
  • Eggs – We try to get cage free / free range large eggs when we can. There isn’t any nutritional difference, but I always try to support animal welfare when I can!
  • Milk: you can use any milk of your choice, but I recommend whole milk for super fluffy eggs. You can use heavy cream as well, if desired.
  • Sea Salt Black Pepper – just a pinch of salt for flavor.
  • Vegetables  – I used sliced tomato and fresh spinach in mine. You want about 1 cup of vegetables of your choice. Some great options are bell peppers, zucchini, mushrooms, caramelized onions, or butternut squash.
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Parmesan Cheese – gives that extra bit of flavor and richness to this dish. Whether you use a sharp real cheese parmesan, or a plant-based version, adding a little extra cheese on top is a fantastic finish.

Cheese Additions or Substitutions

Instead of the parmesan cheese, you can use shredded Swiss cheese or mozzarella cheese too. 

If you like goat cheese or gruyere cheese, you can add that in too.

You could add in other vegetables too – like red pepper slices or thinly sliced zucchini.

How to Bake Tomato Basil Quiche

  1. Prepare pie crust according to package directions, place in a 9 inch pie dish or pie pan, and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, scramble together the eggs, milk, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Add the tomato slices and stir again.
  3. Pour egg mixture into the pie crust.  Top with basil and parmesan cheese.
  4. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake quiche for 40-50minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top of the quiche and the edges of the crust are golden brown, and the center is cooked through.
  5. Allow quiche to cool at room temperature for 15 minutes before slicing. Top with fresh herbs, and enjoy.

To Make Ahead

Follow steps 1-3, and cover the quiche with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Refrigerate for up to 2 days before serving. 

When ready to bake, remove quiche from the refrigerator, and discard the plastic wrap. Follow steps 4-5 and serve.

Make Tomato Quiche Vegetarian for a Better Version

This vegetarian tomato quiche is a simple way to get extra veggies on your table. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. 

By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family.
