There’s no truth to the rumour that “real men don’t eat quiche”. If it’s tasty enough then they will forget about that old book on masculine stereotypes where that phrase first appeared!

What’s more, real men certainly do bake quiche. At least, they do when it’s as easy and delicious as this recipe for a tomato, salami, basil and olive version. Although it’s home baked, it takes store bought pastry which saves time.

Although this dish is traditionally French, this recipe has the flavours of Italy. You generally make quiche by filling a pastry shell with egg custard. Then you add filling ingredients of your choice.
