What is Quiche? Quiche is a savoury meal with pastry crust filled with eggs, milk or cream, and cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables. Quiche can be served hot or cold. I know from my regular food bloggers it is part of French cuisine thus it is also popular in many countries.
I also know that it can be filled with heavy cream, and Gruyere cheese, for I have tasted a sample of Gruyere cheese in a shop selling all type of cheese. I have been told by June Darville, a food blogger that it taste best to add Gruyere in for Quiche. I didn’t get it because it’s so expensive.
Today, I am making crustless quiche without Gruyere and heavy cream and milk. I have got to have chilli. So, I added chili flakes. I know my Quiche presentation is not good as it’s my first time making it without pastry. The taste is what I am after. It’s got to satisfy my stomach. Well, it’s easy, and quick with few ingredients. No hassle in the kitchen and washing up after. Let get Baking Savoury meal!!!!
