    Anyone have a suggestion on how to reheat a whole quiche?

    I'm making a quiche for a friend but she wants it the day before she's planning on consuming it! I told her I could just fix it up for her uncooked and she could just toss it in the oven, but she doesn't want to do that. She wants me to bake it.

    I've never reheated a quiche before. I don't want to nuke it, it would just be soggy. This particular quiche I make with a puff pastry crust, so I would like to get it crisp again if possible. What is the best way to go about this?

    Jenni,

    Its not going to be the same. Once a puff pastry is cooked and cooled, the moister from refridgeration will soften the crust. Reheating it in an oven at 400-450 for 15 minutes will be your best bet. Don't get me wrong it will still be good, just not the same.

    I second your take on the crust, ChefPhilhahn. As for the filling, I don't know if it's a good idea, but I would cut a circle of parchment paper and cover the filling so it doesn't overcook or dry out.
