    All our recipes are tested thoroughly by us to make sure they’re suitable for your kitchen at home. We know many of you are concerned about healthy eating, so we send them to a qualified nutritionist for thorough analysis too. I have made this quiche today using a ready made pastry case and served it slightly warm with salad and it was delicious ! I made 2 quiches out of the ingredients – using red onion which gave it a sweeter taste. Going to add some bacon next time. Even my Mum who has eating difficulties due to health problems managed to eat and enjoy it. Does it freeze can someone assist please?
