Hints & Tips

Below we added some of our communities most common hints and tips. We hope you find them useful.

NEW TIP
Easy to make had all ingredients in store cupboard
As a veggie I omitted bacon, put in peppers, chilli, broccoli, tomatoes, red peppers and mixed the cheese, some cheddar some parmesan
NEW TIP
This was a very easy recipe to follow and very quick to prep
To mix the eggs and quark together (I used cream cheese) I used an electric whisk for few minutes to ensure it was smooth.
NEW TIP
Beautiful and tasty, perfect for a warm Summers day
I did mine in tortilla boats to make them easy for lunches and to freeze. I also then managed to get 8 portions from the mix. Ideally though to use in the boats, next time I would use a little more egg mixture just to fill them up a bit more.
NEW TIP
Add a sprinkle of mixed herbs
I added a sprinkle of mixed herbs and it was a perfect addition.
NEW TIP
Super easy to make and tastes amazing
Made with added mushrooms for extra taste and veg. Finished in the grill just to help make golden brown on top.
NEW TIP
Added veggies
Added mushrooms and sliced tomatoes on the top, all adds to your 5 a day😁
NEW TIP
So easy to make and tasty
Buy 50% less fat cheese!
NEW TIP
Quick and easy to adapt for a veggy.
Used lighter philly as didn’t have any quark (whatever that is!!) Left out the bacon as cooking for a veggy 🥕. Used red and white onion. Topped with some extra mozzarella 😋

You’ll need a Pyrex flan dish like this one for a lovely round quiche.

You can whisk the mixture with a fork, or a proper whisk to speed things up a little. They’re available in supermarkets or online.

How many calories are in this Crustless Quiche Lorraine?

There are 336 calories in each portion of our slimming friendly Crustless Quiche Lorraine which means it falls into our Everyday Light recipe category.

This quiche is perfect if you’re following a calorie controlled diet, and fits well with any one of the major diet plans such as Weight Watchers.

As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. Obviously, if your goal is to lose weight then you might want to adjust these slightly! You can read more about these recommendations on the NHS website.

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Chop the bacon into thin strips and dice the onion finely.

Step 2

Spray a frying pan with low calorie cooking spray and, on a moderate heat, cook the bacon strips and diced onion until the bacon has coloured and the onion is soft. Set aside to cool slightly.

Step 3
