Top Tip | Short of time? If you wanted to make a large quiche instead of mini quiches, we suggest finding a rectangular tin, and arranging the pastry accordingly.
Foodie Fact | Alexandrina Cheese performs two functions when it is added to our Mini Quiches. It delivers flavour and adds fat, and this combination contributes to a pleasing mouthfeel and substance. Cheese is really the secret to a great quiche.
