Hi friendHonesty, I don't even know what is quiche so your post prompted me to research what is quiche really is and thanks to Wikipedia that says quiche is a French cuisine, a baked dish that is based on a custard made from eggs and milk or cream in a pastry crust. The pastry shell is blind baked before the other ingredients are added for a secondary baking period. It has other ingredients like cooked chopped meat, vegetables, or cheese are often added to the egg mixture before the quiche is baked. Is it the quiche you were talking about? If so, I really am totally ignorant of the food and I've not tasted nor made this kind of dish. But you know from the description alone my mouth really went watery. It seems like a very palatable kind of food and I wish I could have the chance to eat quiche too. Well, I will not stop till I taste this. I think I have to go and find a french restaurant around one of these days so I could have a taste of quiche and would also know how to pronounce the word. Thanks for your post!

Hi Salonga:-) You pronounce it "keesh"! Thanks for looking it up and telling us what it said. I have made it but not for a few years and that reminder was good. And I am going to make one soon! Basically you can put any nice vegetable in it, can't you! And/or with some meat if you wish. Yum! I am always on the lookout for something good to make for my grandson who lives with me, and it's all the better when I it is something I have made before but forgotten about.

I have never made quiche but I love the stuff. Don't suppose you'd trade a slice for some cake?

Quiche! Ok I admit I'm a sucker for food. Any food that is with cheese, onions and mayo. I had my first taste of this awesome preparation 3 years back when an american friend threw a party. I dumped my diet and immediately stormed the tables and there it was this French cuisine preparation almost winked at me begging me to gobble it up. Yup, this was something I was looking for. Was bored of the old regular food we always had at home. And this one stuck to the section of my brain of food to look out for always. Sure enough it takes some mastery to prepare such a thing. I've seen other friends tried to make it but none as exquisite the way my american friend did it. Well of course he was good at this really. He's a self made chef and loves to prepare lots of food. You name it he has it tucked in his recipe mind somewhere and he can prepare it on request. Lol. While these maybe trade secrets to some it can be found online. Lots of variations from the French origin. Here are some (not referral links) links I found online about Quiches. http://allrecipes.com/recipes/breakfast-and-brunch/quiches/Main.aspx http://fatburningtips4women.com/pizza-quichegreat-recipe/ http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Feta-Veggie-Quiche/Detail.aspx http://busycooks.about.com/od/savorypierecipes/r/chickdijquiche.htm http://busycooks.about.com/od/pizzarecipes/r/mwsalmonquiche.htm I love reading about Quiche and these ones are just starters to get everyone into it. Have fun! Cheers!

I do like quiche, and it's been forever since I made one. Reading everyone's responses is making me want one now though! My ex-partner used to make a delicious quiche with broccoli, cheese, mushrooms, and chicken, but when I've made them, I've used them to clean out the fridge of leftovers, with different meats and veggies. I think mushroom, onion, bacon, and cheese may be my favorite combo, but just about anything works. Usually I do crustless, because most of the times that I make a quiche, it is a spur-of-the-moment sort of thing.

My daughter and I discussed this topic just today. She wants to make a nice quiche Lorraine. One of my clients made one and offered me a slice of it last week. She used egg substitute and low fat cheese and broccoli. It was really tasty.

I love quiche! I bought some mini quiche that had cheese and eggs for sure, but spinach as well. It was so yumming! People might think it tasted like spinach, but it really wasn't a spinach taste that I got. What's funny is that there was a woman I know who was reading something out loud one day, and when she got to the word quiche, she pronounced it quickie!

Good morning Aunty, due to my pathetic results with pastry I've never made a quiche and rarely eat it. But I have indulged in one which the maker of raved about in advance and it was really good. It was a combination of caramelised red onions and asparagus. It's wild asparagus which is not very good when compared to the usual asparagus so is best added as an addition to other things but the caramelised onions in anything are fantastic.

Good morning niece, do u get froxen pie crusts there? That is what i use. I haven't made a real pie crust in years.I love onions in anything but have never had them carmelised, sounds good. yassou,
@thea09 (18316)

Yassou Aunty, the only pastry I've seen and attempted from the frozen section comes in huge long tubes which are too long for the freezer and one attempt was enough. You've never had caramelised onions, they'd go lovely with some of your dishes, so easy too, just slowly brown the onions with a little brown sugar. Also I always put tiny shallots round a roasting chicken towards the end, or other type of roast meet, and they come out so sweet it's my favourite part of the meal. Hope you're having a nice day Aunty, I'm not long back from a lovely walk by the sea with the sun shining, very peaceful and relaxing.

I love quiche too. I try top make low fat quiches. In fact, lately I make crustless quiche, or spagetti quiche. My favourite ingredients in a quiche are onion, capsicum, tomato, mushrooms, bacon pieces, a little low fat cheese and parsley. If I make a spagetti quiche, I use the above ingredients, but add broken bits of cooked spagetti.

i really do love it. cant get enough but im not sure i could make one. i never have. my late hubby used to make one now and then. he said you have to have patience or it wont cook good. said it has to be cooked slow. not sure what he meant since i probably should have watched. but i just enjoyed that he cooked now and then

I don't make it but I like it. I remember when quiche was all the rage and there was a saying going around that "real men don't eat quiche". Someone actually said that to me one time and my reply was, "bull...., REAL men eat any da.. thing they want!" lol... I haven't had a good quiche in a long time so I guess I'll have to learn how to make it for myself. Wow Antiquelady, I just noticed you have 11,000 posts at the time I'm posting this reply.

It is a meal by itself, Ronnyb & i like it for breakfast as good as i like it for the other meal. Tomatoes would have been good in mine. I'll try that the nest time i make one. u can add most anything u want, throw it in a piecrust & bake it. U should try making one. u can use sausage or ham if u don't like burger, it's poonounced keesh.I really don't know how to describe it any other way. Have a great weekend.
