Although we’ve called this recipe a Breakfast Quiche, there’s nothing stopping you from enjoying this for lunch or even at dinner!

We’ve used mushrooms and tomatoes in this recipe, but you can also add any extra veg that you have lying around – onions, peppers or even spinach would all work really well.  We’ve also added a couple of tablespoons of quark to this recipe, just to make the egg that bit creamier.  If you’re cooking for dairy free diets (or just really can’t stand quark!), then this recipe would still work really well without it.

Enjoy our Breakfast Quiche hot or cold with plenty of vegetables, or it would also be fantastic as part of a picnic or lunchbox.

What diets is this Breakfast Quiche suitable for?

It can be made suitable for dairy free diets by either omitting the following ingredients or substituting them for dairy free versions;

Is it possible to replace quark with something else?

Many thanks


    SharonMonday 15th May 2023

    Hi Marina, the quark adds a little creaminess but you can leave it out if you prefer and the quiche will still taste great. Alternatively, you could use another creamy soft cheese such as cottage cheese (blitz it first to make it smooth), plain fromage frais or you could use plain fat free Greek yoghurt. Hope this helps.


EmilyThursday 2nd June 2022

Is the calories per slice please


    HollyMonday 6th June 2022

    Hey Emily, yes all of the nutritional information is for one portion of the quiche, hope that helps!


      Emily garrodMonday 6th June 2022

      Roughly how much I’m grames is per slice please?

      HollyMonday 6th June 2022

      Hey Emily, we work out our recipes on the serving size not by weight. To work out your own weight of a serving you would need to make the finished dish and divide servings, as the weight will vary due to variation of ingredients and water content it’s not something we can do as an exact measure. If you scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of the page on the website there is a little arrow by servings and you can alter up or down to serve more or less people. Hope that helps!

Amanda RichardsonFriday 19th March 2021

Hi, I don’t have a silicone cake mould, can I use an ordinary ceramic quiche dish please ?


    HollyMonday 22nd March 2021

    Hi Amanda, yes you can use a ceramic quiche dish you may need to spray it with a little low calorie cooking spray to stop it sticking but it will still work great!


samantha healeySunday 3rd January 2021

Could I add lacto free or low fat cheese instead of quark?


    SharonMonday 4th January 2021

    Hi Samantha, we haven’t tried this ourselves, but a soft lacto free or a soft low fat cheese should work fine in this recipe.Hope you enjoy the recipe!


Karen SmithMonday 19th October 2020

Hi, I’m on my second attempt at cooking this and its been cooking for 45 mins so far but there is still a lot of liquid in it…. help!


    HollyMonday 19th October 2020

    Hi Karen, it could be that your oven is cooler than ours we use fan assisted ovens for all of our recipes. You could try increasing the temperature slightly and continue to cook until the quiche is set and golden in colour. Hope that helps!


Lynn PrestonFriday 21st February 2020

Hi, I have made this twice now and the taste is great but it always goes soggy on top from the mushrooms presumably. Would you recommend I cook them first?


    Holly LevellMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Lynn, I’m sorry you’ve had trouble with the Breakfast Quiches. You could try cooking the mushrooms first to remove some of the moisture or cook the quiche for slightly longer. Hope that helps!


Diane TowlardSunday 14th July 2019

Can you use fat free fromage frais instead of quark TIA


    Sharon FitzpatrickMonday 18th May 2020
