Quiche is essentially a custard made with milk and eggs poured into a pie crust and baked. Assemble quiche: Whether or not your par-baked your buttery pastry shell, check it for holes or cracks that would cause leakage. The Cheshire cheese used here is a reference to the cat with the largest grin in Alice in Wonderland, but it also happens to work very well in the recipe.

Hi there Deb I have an answer for you, but it’s not because I have ANY experience working with pastry apart from making sausage rolls one time. I was puzzled, because my father, a fabulous cook and a manly man, loved quiche.
This version is with asparagus and Parma ham but the principles are the same for other ingredients such as goat’s cheese, leek, spinach, mushrooms, cheddar and salmon, as well as the classic, quiche Lorraine. I found this recipe via Melissa@ibreatheimhungry on PINTEREST just now – they look amazing.
So being me (and not being too crazy about mushrooms) I went a little crazy and filled my quiche with seasoned chicken, fresh spinach, and really sharp cheese. Spoon veggie mixture into bottom of pans and gently push all along the bottom of the pan and up the sides a little to form crust.
Thanks for this delicious recipe of quiche with mushroom …and the pics are fantastic! I’ve cried buckets of tears over pie crust, and must say, I think you’ve hit upon the key – the very cool crust would be easier to handle, and I have unusually warm hands.
