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

Can I replace the low fat cheddar with low fat mozzarella? Just want to use what I have in my fridge

    HollyWednesday 1st July 2020

    Hi Chloe, it’s not something we have tried but it should work fine you will have to alter the calories accordingly though. Hope that helps!

Many thanks x

Hi, could I use low fat or normal cream cheese instead of quark and reduce the quantity of cheddar to get a less cheesy taste to suit our fam? Looking for a really mild taste.

Reply

    LisaMonday 18th May 2020

    Hi Jo. Yes you could! You could even replace the quark with half fat creme fraiche although that would change the nutritional values, if they are important to you. Hope you enjoy the recipe

Is there anything I can use instead of quark please ??

Reply

    LisaWednesday 13th May 2020

    Hi Natalie. You could use some half fat creme fraice, or if you want to keep the calories low, blitz up some cottage cheese in a food processor until it is smooth. Hope this helps.

BarbaraSunday 15th March 2020

Could I substitute the quark with Philadelphia light and get a good result do you think?

    Steve CowderoyWednesday 6th May 2020

    Hi Barbara, thanks for getting in touch with us, you can use Philadelphia light and still get the same results. Please let us know how you get on.

Hi, can I omit the quark as I can’t eat it

Reply

    LisaWednesday 13th May 2020

    Hi Mary. We usually suggest low fat creme fraiche or cottage cheese that has been blitzed until smooth. If you can’t eat dairy, there are some dairy free creme fraiche substitutes available, but this would obviously change the nutritional values of the quiche.

This is amazing. Such a nicer lunch than just salad.

SamSunday 11th November 2018

This was absolutely delicious! If I prep all the ingredients (cooked onion and bacon, whisked egg and grated cheese) do you tho k it would be ok in the fridge for a day or two so I could just pour into a dish, add the extra cheese and bake? I have a baby so I try to prep as much of the next day’s meals as I can after she’s gone to bed.
