types of cheese for quiche

Hi Everyone,

I'm planning to make a sun-dried tomato quiche this weekend. The recipe I have calls for goat cheese, but I do not eat goat cheese or any cheese with similar aroma/taste. Can anyone help me out please?

Thanks very much!

  1. gruyere is pretty classic with quiche.

    1. Do you like parmesan? It would be a nice stronger flavor but not with that goat cheese taste. I too hate goat cheese.

      1. I don't like goat cheese either. I'm thinking about moisture content and that you may have to increase wet ingredients if you sub.a drier cheese. I use aged cheddar in my quiche. Maybe we could have a look at your recipe?

          I don't have the recipe with me right now, but I'll certainly do so tonight. Thanks for your help.

        2. I think you're fine to substitute whatever cheese you like in the quiche -- if you think it will go with sundried tomatoes, use it!

          1. Asiago is nice with eggs IMO
