Think slow cooking is only for winter? Forget that!
There are many reasons to keep slow cooking all year long… and many more amazing spring and summer slow cooker recipes to share.
So let’s discuss the reasons to use your slow cooker in the spring…
One, we are often busier in the spring than we are in the cold dark winter months. Spring parties, sports, and work events can take up a lot of evening hours. Using a slow cooker allows you to set-and-forget dinner, so you can spend more time enjoying the warm weather.
Two, using a slow cooker saves energy and keeps your house cool. If you’re one of those people that refuses to use the oven in the spring and summer, you can still “bake” in your slow cooker.
Three, we all have a favorite hearty slow cooker beef recipe or a beloved warming slow cooker soup, but there are hundreds of springy meals you can make in the crockpot that many people don’t consider.
Like this Slow Cooker Easy Quiche Recipe, for instance.
To make our Slow Cooker Easy Quiche Recipe
Press two pie crusts together on a piece of parchment paper and fit it down into a large slow cooker. The crust doesn’t have to look perfect, but it does need to come up the sides 2 1/2 – 3 inches, to hold the quiche filling.
Then whisk eggs and cream together into a rich quiche base. Add ham, smoked mozzarella cheese and lots of veggies to add flavor, color and texture to the easy quiche recipe.
Then pour the egg mixture into the crust. Press the edges against the walls of the crockpot to make sure the crust doesn’t slump while cooking.
Cover the quiche with a piece of paper towel and secure with the lid, to catch the condensation.
Then set your slow cooker on high and forget about it for at least 3 hours.
When the Slow Cooker Easy Quiche Recipe is ready, the crust will be golden and the center of the quiche will be firm. Lift the whole quiche out of the crockpot by the edges of the parchment. Cut and serve.
You will be amazed at just how perfect the quiche comes out of the slow cooker! Crisp flaky crust cradling pillowy decadent quiche filling.
This Slow Cooker Easy Quiche Recipe is perfect for a weekend brunch and serves at least 10 people.
If you would like to set-and-forget this Slow Cooker Easy Quiche Recipe for longer than 3-4 hours, you can turn the slow cooker on low and check after 5 hours. Depending on your slow cooker it could take as long as 8 hours, giving you a full day of play while your crockpot is cooking away!
(All slow cookers vary in temperature a little bit. I have three and they all take different times to cook the same dish. Adjust the time as needed for your slow cooker.)
Slow Cooker Easy Quiche Recipe
- Chop all veggies and ham. Then place the onions, bell peppers, and garlic in a small nonstick skillet and sear over medium to soften, 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Meanwhile, place an 18-inch piece of parchment paper on the countertop. Place the two rolled-out pie crusts on the parchment, overlapping in the center, to create one long piece of crust, about 17- to 18-inches long. Press the overlapped portion together, then move into a large 6-quart oval slow cooker. Gently fit the crust down into the creases of the slow cooker, and press the excess crust against the sides. Crimp the edges, making sure the crust goes 2 1/2 to 3 inches up the sides.
- In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, ground mustard, and 1/2 teaspoon salt together until smooth and frothy. Whisk in black pepper to taste. Then stir all the veggies, ham and cheese into the egg mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared crust.
- Press the sides of the crust against the crock again to make sure they are secure. Then place a long piece of paper towel over the slow cooker and cover with the lid. Pull the paper towel edges tight so it doesn't sag. (The paper towel with absorb condensation.) Turn the slow cooker on high for 3-4 hours, until the edges of the crust are brown and the center of the quiche is set. Lift the entire quiche out of the slow cooker by the edges of the parchment paper. Cool for 10 minutes, then cut and serve.
