Have made this many times and it's delicious and fairly quick & simple. I do use an extra egg to make it set better but one of the kids favourite dinners and a simple but impressive lunch for visitors

Great for a lunch , good cold or hot. I used half smoked salmon and half lightly poached salmon and it works a treat.

Excellent recipe, very tasty, will definitely make again. Does not freeze very well as the cream splits and the pastry holds the water.

Simple and very tasty. Took a lot longer than the recipe states but was worth it. Will definitely make again

Simple recipe and very tasty, having said that I used double cream instead of single as that was what was in my fridge and also added one chopped red pepper. Would definitely make this again.

I have made different quiches and am sure this will turn out as good as all the others. (too many cheese varieties for us)

Made this today and it was gorgeous! Easy to make and spot on with timings and measurements.

I've made this many times using lime or lemon zest - just as good! I always boil the spuds whole & then slice, & add 3 eggs, as I use the largest flan tin I can find. Really tasty hot, or cold next day, if it lasts that long!
