If you’re looking for the best quiche recipe, this is it!

Staff, America's Test Kitchen on

After testing numerous combinations of dairy and eggs for our best quiche recipe, we settled on a medium-rich custard with a smooth texture, fine taste, and a good set, combining two whole eggs with two yolks, 1 cup of milk, and 1 cup of heavy cream.

We found that a baking temperature of 375 degrees was low enough to set the custard gently and hot enough to brown the top before the filling became dried out and rubbery.
