Spaghetti squash is so versatile and delicious that I thought I’d take it a step or two further and use it as a “crust” for a vegetable quiche. It worked wonderfully well and is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner. See? I told you it was versatile!**Please Note – The printable recipe card with detailed instructions and complete ingredient measurements for making Roasted Spaghetti Squash & Veggie Quiche is available near the end of this post.

The ingredients you’ll need to make Roasted Spaghetti Squash & Veggie Quiche;

  • spaghetti squash
  • Parmesan cheese
  • broccoli
  • grape tomatoes
  • bacon
  • cheddar cheese
  • eggs
  • milk
  • fresh thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • grated nutmeg
  • garlic powder

The key to this recipe is to roast the spaghetti squash well in advance of when you’re actually ready to assemble the quiche. Once roasted, cool the squash slightly before scraping out its interior “strands”.

Season the strands and press them into the bottom, and up the sides, of a prepared pie pan before it’s baked again for a second time.

You’ll notice that after you bake the spaghetti squash “crust”, quite a bit of moisture will form on top of the squash. Since I was worried that this would prohibit the quiche from setting-up as I had hoped, I blotted the top of the “crust” with a few paper towels before I added the vegetable filling and eggs. Don’t forget this step! I do believe it’s an important one that will keep your quiche from having a soggy bottom, and as we all know, nobody likes a soggy bottom!

I urge you to plan ahead when you make this Spaghetti Squash and Veggie Quiche. Even though it’s simple to make, the roasting of the squash and the baking of the filled quiche will take approximately 2 hours from start to finish. But please don’t let that scare you away. I promise the flavor is worth every, single minute!

If you’re ready, let’s get cooking!!

  • Use a sharp knife and carefully cut the squash in half lengthwise.
  • Remove the seeds (I find an ice cream scoop works best) and place the squash cut side down on a prepared baking sheet.
  • Roast in a 425-degree oven for 40 minutes.
  • Cool and then scrape the strands of the squash and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the Parmesan cheese, thyme, olive oil, nutmeg, and garlic powder into the squash. Mix well.
  • Press the squash mixture evenly into the bottom of a prepared pie pan and up the sides.
  • Bake the squash crust for 10-15 minutes.
  • Pat with paper towels to remove excess moisture.
  • Set aside while preparing the filling.
  • Sautée the broccoli and tomatoes in the same pan that the bacon was cooked in.
  • Spread the bacon, veggies, and cheese evenly into the pie pan.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper.
  • Pour the egg mixture into the pie pan and bake for 60-65 minutes until the quiche is set in the center and is golden brown in color.
