“ Brand: Asda / Type: Other Ready Meals „
I have been a fan of savoury pastry dishes for years, with cheese and onion quiche always being my favourite. It is ideal to have in as either a snack or as a quick tea. With Christmas just around the corner I will be buying more to have in for the parties that I'm gong to have over the festive season.
I am reviewing Asda chosen by you cheese and onion quiche. The quiche comes in a cardboard box that is yellow in colour. There is a picture of the said cheese and onion quiche at the front of the box.

This is ready to eat either hot or cold. Cooking instructions follow:

Myself and my best mate had a late tea tonight, so we decided to have
this quiche as I picked it up with a few essentials to snack on over the week end.
The quiche itself is very tasty having a medium cheddar taste to it with plenty of onion added too. The onions taste sweet and not sour. The pastry is made of short crust pastry having a nice rich savoury taste to it not being too hard and not at all soggy. We had this on it's own tonight; however we usually have it with either potato salad or a jacket potato and some side salad.
This is can either be heated or eaten cold, we had ours warmed in the oven. Personally I don't like eating this cold, however personal preference can be suggest other wise. We were greedy tonight and had half each. This two people, I have managed to get three portions out of it in the past.
Only available at Asda for the price of £1.00.
OK - I must have tried them all - quiche and salad is one of my favourite meals and it's what I usually give friends when they stay over. It only takes a couple of minutes to open the box and pop the quiche in the oven. While it's cooking, I make the salad. No garlicky smell to contend with either. Any leftovers can be covered with clingfilm and put in the fridge for the morning. I always keep a couple in the freezer.
As a vegetarian, it's great to be able to buy cheese and onion with no bits of ham anywhere. Quite a few supermarkets do it but this one is the best. It's got a really nice, strong, cheesy flavour. The egg custard is tasty and a bit wobbly - just right, in fact. This is selling for around the £1.50 mark at the moment.
I like the fact that it is made by Asda as you know that the quality will be good and the price reasonable. Also, there is a really big Asda in my city so I can keep stocked up! Give it a go.
I love a good quiche and I really do enjoy making my own however it can be time consuming not to mention expensive if using decent quality ingredients and so for this reason I usually buy pre bought ones and pop them in the freezer and so on.
I spotted this in Asda at only a pound a quiche in the chiller cabinet and thought it had to be worth a try!
The quiche comes in a silver foil and rather deep tray and within a light yellow and gold box and on the front of it there is a photograph of a some quiche on there and we are told that it is Asda 'Chosen By You' Cheese & Onion Quiche 'Extra mature cheddar, medium cheddar and red Leicester with onions, in shortcrust pastry' and that it serves 2 people, is suitable for Vegetarians and is freezable, the weight is stated which is 360g and an at a glance nutritional chart is stated. On the sides of the box other information listed includes ingredients and allergy advice being given, there is a full nutritional chart shown, cooking instructions are also stated (this can be served hot or cold of course) and contact details for Asda are given. Its a nice enough to look at and informative box.
What you get with this is a rather generous sized quiche suitable for two people (or four small portions). In appearance it looks nice enough, has fluted golden coloured shortcrust pastry to the base of it (not too thick but robust enough to hold a hefty filling) and the sides is fluted to the edges and then within that lots of creamy coloured firm set egg blended with three different cheese that in part you can see and with small slithers of well cooked onion throughout it and the top is set golden giving it a home cooked appearance.
Taste wise well it tastes much like a cheese and onion quiche really. It isn't all that well seasoned though but of course you can add your own if you want to and its optional to heat it up in the oven which I didn't do as I served and ate mine cold.
The cheese flavour is great, creamy and rich and the onion is well cooked. I wasn't overly keen on the pastry as I felt that it didn't hold very much flavour to it at all but it isn't vile, holds itself together very well indeed and is an economy purchase and all in not too bad!
