How To Cook Costco Quiche

Here are 3 ways to cook your delicious quiche. Remember that regardless of how you cook your quiche, it needs to reach an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.

First off, remove the quiche from the plastic container and plastic wrapping.

Be sure to remove this plastic wrapping before cooking your Spinach and Artichoke quiche.

Conventional Oven (Preferred method)

1.) Preheat oven to 375°F.

2.) Bake your Costco quiche in foil pan (aka the pan it comes prepared in) for 23-25 minutes

3.) Add 5-10 minutes if frozen or until center reaches 165°F

4.) Allow sit for 5 minutes before serving/eating.

Microwave Oven

1.) Cut your Costco quiche into serving portions and place one serving on a microwave safe dish.

2.) Heat on high for 2 minutes or until center of the quiche reaches 165°F.

3.) Allow it to sit for 5 minutes before serving/eating.

Air Fryer Reheat Directions (by the slice)

  • Spray air fryer basket with some oil to prevent your quiche from sticking
  • Preheat the air fryer to 375 degrees
  • Bake 15-20 minutes
  • Allow to cool and enjoy!

Personally, I have found that air frying this Costco quiche is the best way to attain that crispy crust. I like a little crunch before biting into something soft. It’s definitely a personal preference at this point of the quiche cooking.

Whether you are using a conventional oven, microwave oven or air fryer be sure to warm your quiche to an internal temperature of 165.

Storing Your Costco Quiche

Wrap your quiche in aluminum foil and pop it in the fridge. You can keep it in the aluminum pan it came in.

You can always use the fool proof way of putting it in Tupperware.

Freezing Your Costco Quiche

If you’re looking to freeze your quiche, do so before “best by” date. It can stay in the freezer for up to one year from the date of manufacture. Just be sure to freeze your quiche before “best by” date.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the serving size for this quiche?

1/5 of the quiche is a serving size. Each serving has 11 g protein. Since the serving size is 1/5 of the quiche, it’s not likely the exact serving size will be consumed. Don’t feel any regret if you got for the quarter slices! It’s a great meal prep option to quickly cut into 4’s and into a container. Done and done.

Depending on the time of day you are serving your quiche whether it be breakfast, brunch or dinner here are a few options.

Should I thaw my Costco quiche before cooking?

No need to thaw your quiche to room temperature. If you are using a conventional oven, just add 5-10 minutes. If you are using an air fryer add about 5 minutes.

So now you know how to cook your Costco quiche, but which flavor is tastier?

Well, the spinach & artichoke quiche combines cheesy goodness with spinach and artichoke. It is mixed with an egg white custard (emphasis on the egg white). The broccoli cheddar quiche was probably more of a crowd favorite for the littles and I don’t blame them. Name something more classic than broccoli and cheddar. Regardless, it’s quality food that is already meal prepped and ready to be cooked and consumed.

Lastly, if you’re wondering if the price for these two quiches from Costco is worth it, I’m here to tell you it is. Costco sells these La Terra Fina quiches for $13.59 as a pack of 2 compared to $8.97 for a single quiche at Wal-Mart. That’s a savings of $4.35 = worth it!

Now you know how to cook a Costco quiche, the only thing left is to enjoy it.
