My second quiche is a fancy one- one with Roquefort cheese. If you are like me, you have no idea what Roquefort cheese is. Basically, it is a fancy blue cheese and to say that I was SUPER excited to actually find this cheese at the grocery store, would be an understatement. It made my day.

Now I wouldn’t recommend this quiche to anybody that doesn’t like blue cheese. The flavor is definitely overpowering. I love blue cheese so this quiche was right up my alley. My boyfriend, on the other hand, tolerates blue cheese so this wasn’t his favorite recipe, but he is a good sport and still ate it. Also, the reason my quiche look so ‘eh’ is because I don’t own a false-bottom pan. I own a normal cake pan that I bought for ~$4. I partially baked my crust in it and then set it free on a baking sheet. I put A LOT of faith into this crust as I poured the quiche mixture in and put it in the oven. It was going well for a while, and I was super proud of myself… until it happened. One side the quiche’s crust completely broke and the mixture started seeping out. Luckily, I put it on a baking sheet or this would have been a total disaster. Up top is the Instagram picture but here is the actual picture:

I suppose I will invest in a false-bottom pan before the next quiche is made. Anyways, despite the looks, I still think it tasted pretty good for a blue cheese-fan like myself.
