Quiche is delicious French food that is typically filled with cheese, meat, and veggies surrounded by a pie crust. There are a variety of quiches so it is difficult to say just how many calories in Quiche there are.
A one cup size of quiche made with cheese and without meat has 475 calories in it. That’s why it tastes so good! The calorie content is considerable given the richness of the ingredients. That same one cup serving of quiche would also have 37 grams of fat in it.
Traditional quiches such as this are particularly unhealthy because of the saturated fat content. Just one serving has 90% of your daily saturated fat intake and over 200 mg of cholesterol. That’s nearly 70% of the daily recommended allowance of cholesterol for one day in just a small serving.
Another popular type of quiche is a breakfast quiche featuring ham and cheese. This is a much more low calorie version of quiche. One serving of this style has 295 calories in it. Another type of quiche commonly cooked up is a broccoli and cheese quiche. This particular variety has 270 calories in it.
Quiche recipes can be manipulated to make them just about as healthy or unhealthy as you want them to. Healthy recipes typically call for reduced fat cheese and egg whites instead of whole eggs and regular cheese.
