I've got a Tescos quiche for a picnic dinner tonight. It says can be eaten hot or cold - then has instructions to heat for 20 mins in oven.
If I'm eating cold - do I leave as is - or do I heat for 20 mins then let cool. The pastry looks as if its cooked - or does it need crisping?
We always heat because the pastry usually is soggy if you don't, and the eggy filling a bit heavy. but it depends on the make of quiche!
It is safe to eat straight from the pack unless it states explicitly MUST BE COOKED. Those are the words to look out for on food that could be either, such as quiches and other cold pies...
I thought I once read on the packet that if you want to eat it cold, you can eat it striaght from the packet, but it tastes better if you reheat it and then let it cool again. That might be Sainsbury's quiche though not Tesco's. Sounds like a lot of effort to me.
