I wanted to like this one a lot, but it didn’t go over especially well in our household. It formed well and cooked thoroughly (longer than the recipe time, but I didn’t preheat the cooker for very long so that may have had something to do with it!) The flavours just didn’t work for most of us and it felt overly rich to me, but my daughter did enjoy it very much! I may experiment with less cheese, different flavours, more vegetables or something along those lines because I did like the cooking method.

I made this for the first time using seafood extender. I forgot to add the salt and pepper, but it doesn’t need it for this light and fluffy, as well as slightly sweet quiche.
I used a 6L oval slowcooker and lined the base with baking paper, cooking in the slowcooker bowl rather than a separate dish. It still formed perfectly, and cooked in the same amount of time as posted.
