Try any of these 17 savory side dishes for a nutritious meal that not only tastes great, but it is also easy to make as well.
17 Side Dishes to Serve with Quiche
1. Corn Bread
Semi-sweet and packed with moisture and flavor, cornbread is a delicious choice to serve as a side if you are looking for mildly sweet food.
I’ve come to learn that box cornbread makes a great substitute for scratch cornbread and does not take that much time or money to make.
2. Pecan and Raisin Salad
Pecan and raisin salad is my favorite go-to for when I want to eat healthily and not compromise my taste buds.
When I want to sweeten up my salad without adding sugar, I like to go with a few slices of pineapple to complement the raisins.
3. Bruschetta Bread
This spicy bread brings a lot of zest and flavor to the creamy quiche. Because of its intense flavor, bruschetta bread makes an ideal match.
I like to use honey butter to sweeten my bread. If you can’t find sweet butter in stores, just use regular butter and drizzle a little honey on top.
4. Lemon Meringue pie
Lemon meringue pie and quiche are a yummy compilation. The sweet zing of the pie enhances the rich creaminess of the quiche filling.
The secret to any great pie is the crust. Store-bought pie crust is great if you are pressed for time; however, I prefer to make my own.
Spinach is a smart choice to pair as a side for quiche because of its strong flavor and the fact that it is low in calories.
Spinach can be a little boring for me so I like to sauté it in a little olive oil with some mushrooms and onion.
6. Butternut Squash Soup
Go ahead and warm up to a hot bowl of butternut squash soup and a thick slice of quiche. This combo is sure to wake up your senses with its mild taste and rich textures.
When I want to spice up my soup I like to add jalapeno pepper. If I want to cut down on the heat, I only use half a pepper.
7. Grilled Shrimp Scampi
If you are looking for a side dish that is sure to please your family, then serve up some grilled shrimp scampi.
This shrimp is easy to make, all you need is olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, and black pepper. Scallops can be substituted for shrimp if you like.
8. Barbeque Wing Dings
Tangy and savory, barbeque chicken and quiche make a yummy pair. The tender chicken accents the smooth pie filling.
When I am pressed for time I like to purchase store-bought wing dings. If I’m not in the mood for barbeque, I use plain wings instead.
9. Sweet Potato Casserole
Super sweet and filling too, this casserole is so sugary there is no need for dessert. The tender potato meshes well with the soft quiche.
For a big crunch and a major flavor boost, I like to top my casserole with some pecans. This is also a great way to get some vitamins.
10. Baked Zucchini and squash
If you like the mild earthy taste of zucchini and the semi-sweet flavor of the squash, then this side dish is for you.
For more color and flavor, I usually cut up an onion and a tomato and add them to my vegetables. This is a healthy way to maximize taste.
11. Tomato Soup
Tomato soup is a practical choice to match with quiche. It is simple to make but healthy and packed with flavor.
I like to spice my tomato soup up and give it a unique flavor by adding in a little sugar, baking soda, and heavy whipping cream.
12. Green beans and Smoked Bacon
The sweet-savory bacon mixed with the snappy green beans is a must-have pair as a side dish for your quiche.
Green beans are durable enough vegetable that they can be canned or frozen. I, however, prefer fresh green beans and to snap the ends off myself.
Any bread is good with quiche because of the contrasting textures and Focaccia is a must-have if you are going for flavor.
I like to eat my focaccia basted in olive oil and sprinkled with a little basil. Olive oil is healthier than butter and has a lighter taste.
14. Ham and Potato Soup
This deliciously hearty soup is sure to fill you up and satisfy your taste buds at the same time. The savory ham complements the creamy quiche well.
I like to make this soup in the slow cooker because I can add in all my ingredients and walk away and not worry about my dinner until it’s ready.
15. Cheesy Baked Potato
If you are like me and just can’t get enough of potatoes, then serve up a cheesy baked potato with your quiche for a hearty meal.
When I want to take my baked potato up a notch, I load them with some bacon and ham and top with sour cream and chives.
Bomboloni are super yummy Italian doughnuts that taste great with just about anything, so no wonder I chose this as the perfect dessert for quiche.
The best part about Bomboloni is that the ingredients can be found at your local grocery store. All you need are eggs, milk, yeast, flour, butter, sugar, and vanilla.
17. Iced Black Tea
Serving the right beverage is just as important as nailing the perfect side dish to go with your quiche. I chose iced black tea because it is not loaded with sugar.
A great way to sweeten up your tea is to add some lemon and honey to it. The lemon and honey give the tea a sweet taste with a hint of sourness.
Because quiche is so versatile and can be made in any number of ways, picking the perfect side dish was easy. No matter how you make your quiche there 17 side dishes are the right match.
