Making a quiche with ready made pastry, did I need to blind bake the pasty first?

Or just put in the quiche mixture on the uncooked pasty and bung it in the oven and hope for the best?

I prefer to blind-bake for about 20 minutes first.

I would blind bake first, then brush with egg and bake again for a coujple of mins to seal the pastry, before putting in the filling.

you don't have to if you've got a ready made pastry case

it's always best to bake blind frist - it means that the base can crisp up andhas time to cook.
if you put the raw filling in the raw case, you'll get a soggy base.

I've done both. Its fine without, but you will have a soggy base in the middle.
