About the Recipe

Share

This Cheese Quiche uses Swiss Cheese to make the famous Quiche au Fromage de Gruyere in French – one of the recipes that I’ve made in the French quiches series. It is very simple and is just perfect if you are a cheese fan.

The instructions are similar to the Cream and Bacon Quiche recipe, but this time I stirred around 4 ounces of grated Swiss cheese into the egg and cream mixture. I also added a little bit of milk.

What Is Quiche?

quiche is a French tart or pie that is straight sided and open faced.

Quiches are usually a mixture of cream and baconcheese and milk, tomatoes and onions, shrimp, crabs or anything else combined with eggs, poured into a pastry shell and baked in an oven until they puff and brown.

But we are focusing on cheese this time. 😉

Can I Use Other Cheese Types?

Absolutely. Instead of Swiss cheese, you can use cheddar, mozzarella or your favorite cheese really. This quiche is amazing either way.

Make Dough

Add water and gather dough into the mass. Press the dough firmly into a roughly shaped ball. After that, place the dough into a fridge for about 1 hour until the dough is firm.
