Ninja Foodi Quiche
You see, we have chickens. Like a lot of them. SO that means we have A LOT of eggs. Yep, eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner around here. I am not complaining. It is one less thing to buy from there store.
I also know they are free range organic babies, every single one. If you don’t live in the boonies like we do, just buy some at the store along with your add ins and we can get going. 😉
This is what was added this go around. I mean there is great variations to this breakfast quiche according to your taste buds. Make vegetarian or a meat lovers version with bacon and/or leftover ham too.
Air Fryer Omelette
Here are a few questions you might have before you get started on this baby:
Yes! We have done it all. Hard boiled eggs in air fryer works, along with air fryer breakfast, and now this quiche recipe we have here.
Frozen quiche that is precooked can in fact be heated in your Ninja Foodi or Cosori. Preheat for 5 minutes at 350 F, then cook for 15-20 minutes until warmed through to the center.
Use a large bowl to whip up your egg mixture. This will make one 4″ that will serve 1-2 people. You could make more and just rotate them in one at a time.
Air Fryer Frittata
I have made this killer spinach quiche for years. You could in fact use refrigerated pie crust with this filling too.
Ingredients and items needed:
- 4″ pan – you’ll want one like this or oven safe ceramic dish so you can lift it out
- you’ll want non stick cooking spray too to make things easier
- Milk or heavy cream
- Shredded cheese(s)
- Diced bell peppers and onions work great
- Precooked finely diced meat is optional
- Seasonings such as salt and pepper
You could add green onions to your breakfast frittata too. Remember to preheat the air fryer for 5 minutes before putting your prepared pan into your air fryer basket.
Including prep and preheating time keep in mind that this may take up to 25 minutes to complete.
Quiche in Air Fryer
Time needed: 8 minutes.
Air Fryer Quiche
Preheat air fryer to 325 F. for 5 minutes.
In a bowl whisk eggs, then add all other ingredient, stir to combine. Spray 4″ cake pan with cooking spray. so it lifts out easily Then pour egg mixture inside.
Put into air fryer basket for 8-10 minutes total cook time.
Remove, allow to cool in pan for at least 3 minutes before removing it.
Can you cook a ready made quiche in air fryer?
You can. If you wanted to buy a frozen version at the store you would just follow the oven directions on the back but use this instead. I would cover the crust edges with foil so they don’t get too browned. Remove a few minutes near the end so they can crisp up just a bit for you.
Here is what it looks like when it is done and ready to be enjoyed!
What cheeses can be used in quiche?
There are several options but the best we like are:
- Swiss is the most common
- Gruyere is an option as well
What goes with quiche?
Salad is often times served along side a slice. Some like a bowl of tomato soup, and I like a slice of bread or rolls for sure. Just make your sides quick and easy I say.
I have made an Instant Pot omelette before but honestly, this turns out better. I love the crunchy browned top when this is done. The texture is just the best.
If you have a Foodi you can opt to try our Ninja Foodi breakfast as well. It is similar but you don’t need a springform pan to make it which is nice.
Other favorites next to this one are our air fryer egg bites and air fryer breakfast stuffed peppers. You can load those up or make them super simple too. Poached eggs are a close third.
