Can You Make a Quiche in the Air Fryer?

If you ever wonder if you can make something in the air fryer, just remember this saying: if you can bake it, grill it, or fry it, you can more likely than not air fry it. Today I am excited to share with you how to make a very tasty and very healthy quiche in the air fryer. This recipe is a great one because the ingredients are not only simple, but super adaptable. It is the perfect go-to breakfast recipe when you want to have a more fancy and more breakfast than your traditional eggs and bacon.

What Ingredients Do You Need To Make Quiche?

I personally love this recipe because it is a crustless quiche recipe. This just means you probably already have all the ingredients you need on hand. For this recipe, you will need:

  • 4 links sausage, remove the casing and cut into pieces 
  • 3 ounces spinach
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Small handful of your favorite cheese
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 3-4 eggs, beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Dash of pepper
  • Pinch of nutmeg

Feel free to change out the ingredients, such as the sausage and spinach with your own favorite meats or vegetables. For example, ground sausage or ham instead of sausage links (make sure the sausage is cooked before you add it to the quiche!). Or, you could add bell peppers, mushrooms, or zucchini to the mix. Get creative!

What Dish Do You Cook Air Fryer Quiche in?

Just like how the recipe ingredients are simple, so are the steps to making a perfect quiche in the air fryer. But, before you begin making this recipe, you will want to make sure that you have an air fryer pizza pan. An air fryer pizza pan normally comes in an air fryer accessory kit, however you can also buy a pizza pan separately. I normally get all my air fryer accessories off of Amazon.

How to Make Air Fryer Quiche

Make your quiche contents by first cooking the sausage links in the air fryer for 3 minutes at 350°F/175°C.  Flip or stir the sausage and then cook for an additional 3 minutes at 370°F/185°C.

While the sausage cooks, steam the spinach and water in a covered bowl for 2 minutes in the microwave.

Next, in a bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg.

How to Cook Quiche in the Air Fryer

Once you have your pizza pan, lightly spray it so that the quiche doesn’t stick to the pan. Then, place the cooked sausage in a lightly sprayed air fryer pizza pan, top with the spinach and cheese. Then add the egg and milk mixture on top. 

Place the pizza pan in the air fryer basket and cook at 350°F/175°C for 12 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Final Thoughts

I love this recipe because it is simple and easy. Plus, each time I make it, I try to be more creative about what I add to the quiche. I love eating this quiche with some sautéed mushrooms or bell peppers. What will you add to your quiche? Share with us in the comments below!

Comments & Reviews

  • This looks really good, I’m going to try it (but not with spinach, bleh. Maybe some swiss chards). Since you’re asking, my favorite quiches are quiche lorraine (bacon and no cheese) or bacon/cheese/mushrooms.

    Try adding a hint of nutmeg, and replacing the milk by heavy cream (either all or a mix of both). That’s the secret of French cuisine 🙂

    • Mmm, that sounds amazing! Thanks for sharing!

    • This is a great recipe, although I followed it loosely. I always prefer a crustless quiche, too. I had a Mexican blend of cheese that I needed to use, and it worked fine. Omitted the spinach/sausage, but instead used some cooked asparagus pieces, about 1/2 cup. I actually only used 2 eggs. You can really make this your own with what you have on hand or your preferences. It cooked perfectly for me at 10 minutes. Nice, quick breakfast, lunch or snack. I’m fairly new to air frying, so recipes like this are appreciated! Thank you!

  • This is exactly what we were looking for.

  • I wanted a similar recipe but with some flour/ baking powder added as I had been given a recipe years ago by an American friend using bisquick that was good in a conventional oven., wanted it for a main meal. Cooked some broccoli softened some chopped onion beat and added remaining ingredients ( inc 1oz flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder1/2pt milk ) probably added too much milk. ….cooked at 165c 15 mins and it wasn’t set kept adding minutes and increased temp 175c ..it was finally ok but not fully set had to cover the top as it was over browning ….might just have the sense to follow your recipe next time!!😅

      Great job trying things out on your own, Susie! Thanks for sharing your process and feedback! Hope it works better next time 🙂

  • I made this for lunch today. It’s very tasty. I don’t care for meat in eggs, so I opted for mushrooms, onions, spinach, and zucchini. I added garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning to the egg mix, but I didn’t sauté my fresh veggies prior to making. I should’ve known better because they all contain a lot of water. So that caused my baking time to increase by 6 minutes. Still worth the wait, but the water has come out onto my plate as I ate the quiche. Next time, I’ll sauté them first and dry on a paper towel prior to cooking and it should bake in 20 minutes and be perfect.
