Alsatian Quiche is my recipe of the day. I’ve had this recipe since at least the late 1970’s and in all that time, it’s still a keeper. It’s probably been closely involved with just about every quiche recipe I have ever made. The ratios work.

Alsatian Quiche slice

The Alsatian Quiche is very close to being like a Quiche Lorraine. The main difference between the two is the type of cheese used. This quiche uses freshly grated Parmesan. Save the green jar Parmesan for something else, as you won’t like it here.

You’ll generally find Swiss cheese in Quiche Lorraine, or if you’re picky about cheese (I am) then Cave-Aged Gruyere Swiss is the way to go.

Can I use Other Ingredients?

You can add other ingredients such as vegetables in this. I have done it. Just make sure the custard covers it.

How to Tell When Quiche is Done

You will know when the quiche is done when it is domed and puffy. Not flat or cratered. I see so many runny quiche and that’s probably what happened there.

Can I Reheat Leftovers?

Quiche does reheat well. But if  you want the crust to be crunchy, use a toaster oven or oven. If you don’t mind the crust somewhat soft, the microwave will do.
