Pampered Chef: What stone for quiche?

    Just got a question from a customer who wants to buy a piece of stoneware for making quiche. Not my forte. Anyone have advice on which stone would be best.

    Here’s her message to me:

    Hello Jeanine,

    I was invited to Gina's show and will not be able to attend, although I do have a question. I would like to purchase a dish in which to bake a quiche. I really like the cranberry stoneware collection, although it is not necessary for the dish to be from that collection. Not being able to see the collection in person, I am limited to the catalog descriptions and pictures. My concern is getting the best-suited dish. Would you please have any suggestions? Thank you so much in advance for your time and advise.

    Sincerely,
    Teres


    Thanks to anyone and everyone who can help!

    i made a broccoli and ham quiche in the deep dish baker a few months ago. worked perfect and looked very pretty. it wasnt the cranberry or anything.
     
  3. I would suggest the deep dish baker as well. The cranberry one is so beautiful. Usually it is made in a ceramic fluted dish like the metal tart one we have with the removeable bottom. The draw back would be she would need to make pre-baked savory (no sugar added) pie or pastry crust, then add her quich filling.

    It can be done both ways.

    I hope this helps :)

    why not offer the

    Fluted Pan/Tart baking set? It has the easy release bottom the tools and all and then suggest recipes cards to go with it?

    the one i made was in the new stoneware cookbook and i am almost positive i didnt have to use a crust. (maybe on the top??) i will look it up and see. that was my first time making it and i wanted something that was fool proof since it was for the church. let me check it out and i will let you know if youre interested.

    I use...

    the Tart/Quiche Pan with Fluting Tool for my quiche! Hence the name! :D I do like this much better for quiche than stoneware. It is so much easier to serve and it still looks elegant!

    Just my 2 cents

    Aldea,

    Yes, that is the one. The reason I make a crust with it is so that it stands alone. I honestly haven't tried a PC recipe for quiche so I don't know what the batter looks like. My recipe batter is liquid and poured in so, if there weren't a crust it would leak in the fluted pan with release bottom.

    A quiche would be pretty in the Deep Dish Pie Plate.

    The deep dish pie plate is the one for quiche. Quiche is traditionally made in a pie plate so you will not have to adapt the crust like you would in the deep dish baker.

    I have always made mine in the pie plate, and it is wonderful! :D

    I would agree that the pie pan would be the best fit for a quiche. I make a crustless quiche all the time for my Mom who does not like the crust. I slice and saute seasonal vegetables to add to the egg/cheese mixture so it is more healthy for her.

    She loves the crustless quiche.
