Can I use milk instead of heavy cream for quiche?
The answer is, yes you can, which is a relief. You do need some fat in there to help it set, but you can get that from the cheese. Using just milk and eggs as the basis for the filling works perfectly well and I figure you are more likely to have these ingredients in, which is way more helpful.
What is Quiche Lorraine vs quiche?
