Notes

  • The only real secret to this quiche is the making of the crust. Be sure to generously grease the dish with butter and whisk the flour, eggs, and flour well. Small lumps of flour in the quiche filling are fine as they cook out, but very big lumps should be broken up with more whisking.
  • Allow your quiche to cool a little before slicing it. When the quiche is piping hot from. the oven it will be quite fragile and tricky to slice nicely, as it cools it becomes more solid and easier to serve.
  • Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, it is delicious to eat cold. Or freeze leftovers for up to 3 months.

Ingredient notes and substitutions

  • Bacon: This can be substituted for ham, salami or left our entirely if you wish to make this quiche vegetarian.
  • Asparagus: This self crusting quiche recipe will work with any of your favourite veggies, I personally love it with grated carrot and zucchini.
  • Milk: You can use any dairy-free milk alternative that you prefer.
  • Flour: I have personally not tested this recipe with gluten-free flour but I have been told by readers that it does work.
