Hmmm... I think I prefer my quiche with a firm and crispy bottom, after all.

Definitely Charlie, but you will get crinkly marks in your bottom if you sit on it for too long......oh horrors, saggy and

Frenchie, this is my rough-and-ready quiche recipe. As I say I don't use crust. I also don't really measure anything, being a Spanish-type cook of long standing.
2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk (or 2 egg yolks if you're feeling rich)
About 300 ml of whole milk or half-and-half (half milk, half cream)
Salt and pepper
For the filling:
Freshly-grated cheese, we go for softer cheeses for this, but whatever you like. About 250 g
About 200 g Bacon or ham, cut in little strips
If you want veggies, 1 bag of spinach leaves from the salad department or the tops off one bunch from the veg department of your supermarket. Or the tops of one head of broccoli, cut into manageable pieces.

I don't use crust, so what you do is, put the grated cheese and the bacon bits on the bottom of a souffle dish or baking dish big enough to hold the ingredients. If using spinach, wilt slightly in a non-stick pan with a lid and set on kitchen paper to take off any water that comes out. If using broccoli, I like to to sauté the bits a little until crisp-tender. Add to the baking dish.
Beat the eggs and yolks, beat in the milk and season with a dash of salt and pepper (go easy on the salt, you've got the cheese and the ham or bacon) and pour over the ingredients in your baking dish. You can sprinkle some nutmeg over the top but that's kind of High Mass if you're me.
Bake at 180ºC until set. When a table knife inserted in the middle comes out clean, it's done.
Serve warm or cold.

Sounds good, Ori, I think I'll have to give that a go. I do love a nice flaky crusty quiche, but this is probably much better for you!

I'll have a go at it too because I have not got my baking parchment yet nor my quiche dish. I hope I am not going to mess it up :)

I was told by a very good Gardener when I said I was useless in the garden "Darling, if you don't plant it, it won't grow" I think that applies to lots of things frenchie...if you don't try you won't know!xxxx

**red cheeks Frenchie** You are entirely correct Pixie.
I have always told my kids since they are old enough to understand speech '' no matter how many times you try, the essential is that you try and do not let anyone tell you are a failure because the failures are those who do not try, and eventually, you will succeed''.

I also tell them:

''do not try to be perfect, just try your best''...

I guess I needed to be reminded of my own advices.... xx

BTW if it looks like you don't have enough mixture for your ingredients, add 1/3 cup of milk to each extra egg you add.

frenchie im afraid the only quiche recipe i have is for a chilli prawn quiche dont know if you would be interested as maybe too hot for the kiddies

Thanks Stu. I'll take it. Except my daughter, the other kids do not like eggs, so, no quiche for them. They do not mind, they have homemade burgers instead.
I do not mind mild hot. If it is too hot, I'll put less chili, no problem.

ok guys - dead easy

half fat to flour - for pastry
blind bake for 15 mins
100ml milk+1 egg - for mixture

so I make 8oz flour for typical average size dish
300ml milk mixed with 3 eggs
lots of cheese

load base with salmon trimmings (and asparagus or broccoli)
add dill and cracked black pepper to mixture
gently pour mixture into loaded base
bake until the mixture is golden and is firm - sometimes a wobble occurs if there isn't enough cheese,

saute a sliced red onion and thickly chopped mushrooms and add that to the cheese instead
