  • YES! I always do. Do you buy frozen or make it from scratch??

  • I either prebake the crust or make a crustless quiche.

  • I always use frozen crust that is in its own tin...works perfect or I use the store crust from the refriderated section and never have to prebake it. I always do mine at 350 for 45 minutes and never had a problem

  • The best way I have found to make sure that it cooks through, is to put a piece of aluminum foil inside the crust, and weight it down w/ about 1 cup of dry beans or rice (I save the beans and use them for the same thing again), this prevents it from over browning while it bakes, AND from bubbling up. No pricking needed. Sometimes pricking won't help if you have done a good job of making a nice, flaky crust. Bake it @ 400 for 8 minutes to "set" it. *** to prevent it from shrinking, refrigerate it for an hour first.
