      About the Recipe


      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.

      5 min

      Start with Pastry

      Place flour, salt, sugar and butter in a big mixing bowl. Rub the flour and the butter together rapidly between the tips of your fingers.

      1 hour

      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.

      Note: the dough can stay ready to be used for several weeks. Its quality shouldn't change if it stays in a deep-frozen section of your fridge.

      3 min

      Prepare Pastry Shell

      Take the dough out of the fridge. Shape it into a shell.

      5-7 min

      Bake Pastry Shell

      Preheat your oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Bake the pastry shell to a half-ready state for around 5-7 minutes (depends on the oven).

      3 min

      Make Mixture

      Also, beat the eggs, cream, milk and grated Swiss cheese and season in a mixing bowl until everything is blended. Pour the mixture into the pastry shell and distribute the butter pieces on top.

      25-30 min


      Place the quiche onto a top part of the preheated oven and bake it for 25 to 30 minutes. The quiche will become puffed and browned.



      Your Cheese Quiche is ready. Serve with a bit of the chopped spring onion on the side and enjoy!
