Servings 8 Slices


  • 1 Pie Crust I use my Easy Flaky Buttery Pie Crust
  • 2 Ears Roasted Corn, or about 1 cup frozen This recipe uses Silver Queen, though any corn can reasonably substituted.
  • 1 Small Zucchini, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream, Half and Half, or Milk
  • 1/4 Cup Crumbled Goat Cheese Optional. May use more or less depending on desired taste
  • 6 Large Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Fresh Black Pepper


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Shuck whole ears of corn and wrap in tin foil with a small pat of butter.  
  • Place wrapped corn on a roasting pan and place in oven for 20 minutes.  
  • After 20 minutes remove from oven and set aside to allow to cool. 
  • Turn oven heating down to 375 degrees.
  • Slice zucchini very thinly using a paring knife or mandolin.  
  • In a medium bowl, whisk six eggs.  
  • Add the salt and pepper, cream, and goat cheese. Whisk to combine.
  • Once the corn has cooled, remove from tin foil and slice from the cob.  You should have 1/2 cup to 1 cup kernels.  
  • Add corn kernels to egg mixture and stir to incorporate.
  • Pour egg mixture into the prepared pie crust.
  • Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, then carefully remove from oven.
  • Arrange zucchini slices in circles on the top, or scatter them as you desire.  Sprinkle with additional fresh ground black pepper if desired.
  • Place quiche back in oven for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the center is set.


*Quiche may be served hot or cold. **The goat cheese is optional, and other cheeses may also be used such as blue cheese, gorgonzola, feta, or swiss. ***Any type of sweet corn may be used. Silver Queen is just a favorite!
