How to make quiche without double cream

Quiche is essentially a custard baked in a pie crust. A basic quiche recipe calls for eggs, cream and cheese, although a variety of fillings can also be added.

The more traditional recipes call for rich double cream, but a reduced fat milk -- such as skimmed milk -- can be used in place of the cream with no flavour or consistency problems.

Preheat oven to 180C or 160C for a fan-assisted oven.

Whisk the eggs and milk in a bowl until combined.

Add a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.

Pour the egg mixture in the pie crust, and sprinkle cheese (if desired) over the top of the quiche.
