Recipe Tips

If your dough tries to shrink as you are rolling it out or placing it in the pan, then adding some extra flour and allowing it to sit out for a few minutes will help the gluten in it settle.

Number of eggs depending on how you want the quiche to taste. More eggs make for larger, fluffier slices. Less eggs makes for a more compact slice. Less egg also gives a bit more focus to the crust as well.

If your crust extends out of the pan, then creating a ring around the crust with tinfoil will keep the crust from browning too fast as it cooks.

How to Store Leftovers

After the quiche has completely cooled, wrap it with plastic wrap or in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 days.

You can also freeze leftovers for up to 6 months! When you’re ready to defrost, take out of the freezer and place in the fridge for 24 hours before serving.
