Should QUICHE be served hot or cold?

hdalsy May 4, 2010 03:09 PM

I plan on serving one for mother's day. What's the optimal temperature?

    Let me be the first to say that cold quiche is better than no quiche, but I prefer room temp to warm, like most of the rest. Hot? That's okay, too, a notch or two down from lukewarm but pretty good anyway.

      Warm or room temp for me.

      There is a place for hot quiche - but rarely.

        HDaisy - it might depend on what's in it, but I like mine room temp or cold and I've certainly enjoyed them hot.

        Most of mine have no meat in them so maybe that makes a difference? Cold meat isn't good nor is broccoli.

          You've had a lot of "warm" replies so I'll add that taking it out of the oven about one hour before serving works well.

            not to beat a dead horse, but...never cold. i prefer mine slightly warm, but room temperature is fine.

                I think quiche is at it's best hot or at room temperature. I don't care for cold quiche.

                  I also prefer slightly warm but am okay with room temp.

                    I would think that just slightly warm would be best, though room temperature is certainly fine.

                      I'd say room temp, not hot, not cold
