    What is going on with my quiche? Do other people's quiches look like this? I'm guessing no. They taste fine, but they cook so strange! (No, that is not a fly on top...it's a piece of burnt crust that broke off.)

    Good quiche, oven may be running a bit hotter than it shows. Take an oven thermometer to it, I'm betting around 75 to 100 degrees F higher than the dial says.

    Try bumping the temp down after an initial blast of bottom heat to crisp up the crust and brown the crust first, then do the remainder a bit lower and slower so the sides get a chance to transfer heat to the middle.

    I think it's the bowl you are using. Usually they are made in a pie plate or regular Quiche pan. It looks like the bowl is forcing up the edges.
    That looks like it would fill a deep dish, 10" pie plate, just fine.

    That would be my guess as well. I bake mine in a pie plate Or sometimes a small rectangle casserole dish.

    lol missy.
    and i would have to give the same diagnosis, it's probably your dish. it should be wider than it is tall. a pie plate is good since you can use it for more than just quiches. tart pans are good if you already have them or ramekins if you want to make single servings.
