Air Fryer Three Cheese Quiche— Now that the kids are home for summer vacation, I am making some really great breakfast dishes that will feed a family. This is one of my favorites!
This is a great recipe, which starts off with a frozen pie crust. I actually made this several times, before I realized that If I wanted a crispy crust, I would have to prebake it, before filling it.
This is so easy to make, and I hope you all get a chance to make it. This is one of my favorite breakfast recipes.
And let me be the first to tell you that eggs cook amazingly well in the Air Fryer.

How To Make Air Fryer Three Cheese Quiche
Start by thawing your pie crust, for about 10 minutes, by just leaving it on the counter. For a crispier pie crust, prebake the pie crust, in the air fryer for 5 minutes at 250 degrees F, or until golden brown.
Then add 1/2 the shredded cheese (so 4 ounces), all of the shredded Parmesan and Mozzarella,
In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, sour cream and milk.
Pour the egg mixture on top of the cheese
Set in the air fryer, basket, or tray, and set the temperature to 300 degrees F for 12 minutes.
After 12 minutes, add the rest of the shredded cheese on top, and set the air fryer for another 5 minutes. At this point, depending on which air fryer you own, the center should be set.
How To Make It Crustless:
If you are following a KETO or low-carb-friendly diet, you can easily make this without the crust.
Pour the egg mixture into ramekins or a pie dish, and air fry it for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the eggs are set.
Use a Store-Bought Crust:
While today, I used a frozen pie crust, which you can easily find in any American grocery store, in the freezer section.
You can also make this quiche using a refrigerated pie crust.
I would pre-bake the pie crust. This way, you get a completely cooked bottom. If you eliminated this step, the bottom might be raw.
Can you make ahead or freeze quiche?
This is a great make-ahead meal and makes for a great brunch. It’s filling enough for any meal, with the eggs and cheese (lots and lots of protein)
You can easily let refrigerate it for a few days. The best way to do this is to let it cool to room temperature and then cover it with saran wrap. Then, place it into the refrigerator for a couple of days.
To Freeze: Let the quiche cool to room temperature, then cover in saran wrap, and then a couple of times with foil. Place into the freezer. It will last for about 1 to 2 months.
How To Reheat Quiche In The Air Fryer
If you would like to reheat your quiche in the air fryer, place a piece into the air fryer basket and set the temperature to 300 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 5 to 8 minutes, or until warmed through.
