About this recipe: If you use a ready made dough, this quiche will be ready in no time. I often make quiches because I like to have one in the fridge. It's perfect for snacking during the day. This quiche can be served hot or cold.

Excellant and tasty, even though I forgot to pre bake the pastry. Added quite a few different herbs and lots of ground black pepper. - 15 Jan 2015
