Corned Beef and Cabbage Quiche is a great way to use leftover corned beef and cabbage from St. Patrick's Day. For a vegetarian version, just omit the corned beef. Add another 1/2 cup of shredded Swiss cheese.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 6 servings


  • 1 (9") pie crust, unbaked
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 to 2 cups diced cooked corned beef
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 cup light cream
  • 4 teaspoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In large skillet, melt butter. Add onion, cabbage, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5-7 minutes. Then add water, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Remove cover and cook until liquid evaporates and cabbage begins to brown, about 8-10 minutes longer. You need to get liquid out of the cabbage or it will come out when the quiche bakes, making it watery. Stir in the corned beef.

Remove pan from heat and let cool for 15 minutes.

In medium bowl, combine eggs, light cream, flour, caraway seeds, salt, and pepper and whisk until blended.

Spread half of cabbage mixture in pie crust. Top with half of the Swiss cheese; repeat layers. Then slowly pour the egg mixture over ingredients in pie crust.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until quiche is puffed and golden brown in spots. Let cool 5 minutes, then slice to serve.

Simply fabulous, Guest Susan

I was looking for a different recipe for leftover corned beef, and came across this quiche. It is absolutely wonderful. The flavor is just delicious. The quiche is very soft and tender, and the cabbage and onion perfectly complement the beef and egg mixture. Ten stars!!
