bread-crust quiche


bread-crust quiche
Use quiche filling mixture to transform a dry loaf into a spectacular bread-crust quiche. It can be enjoyed on its own or is ideal as an aperitif snack.

The bread crust will crisp up when it is baked a second time, the perfect foil for the soft quiche filling.

Remarks
This recipe is a great way to use up bread that would otherwise go to waste. There is no need to use a fresh loaf; on the contrary, drier bread is easier to cut.

The proportions for the filling are for guidance, so you may need to adapt them to suit the size of your loaf.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Usually to make fruit jellies or (fruit "paste"), it's like jam but you need to cook fruit pulp and sugar much longer. Unfortunately, this long cooking is bad for both vitamins and flavour. In this recipe we use a special jam gelling agent, to reduce cooking time as much as possible .
