    i make a killer quiche.....i like for the quiche to cut well and show all the veggies placed in it....i also like for it to be...cheese/pudding/veggies/crust....

    i also think its very important to have bite sized veggies in the quiche....there in is the problem......bite size flows to the top...so you get cheese, veggies, pudding crust...

    one should not have to use a knife on a piece of quiche

    so how do i solve the problem of floating veggies

    You need to PACK the crust with veggies and cheese. Mix them together in a bowl first.... and then fill the crust so that the veggie cheese mix is the same level/ height..you want or the crust allows.

    So your problem is....not enough stuffing!!!

    Then fill in the spaces with the custard. Let it sit for a bit to allow the custard to flow into all the spaces...and then top it off if it needs more custard.

    if you like layers.... then why worry if the veggies float?

    Ok...i am missing the point of what you want fixed.

    If the veggies float..then you will have your layers.... you you just want your layers in a different order?

    Ok... so what you need to do is set the veggies on the bottom.


    Scramble one egg with a teaspoon of water..... and only use half of the egg misture.

    Toss your veggies with the egg "glue"....put them in the crust and bake the veggies for about 10 minutes until they are "glued" into place. Then top it with the custard and continue baking.

    the other way you can do it...is to put the veggies in the bottom of the crust and just enough custard in the bottom for ...glue. Bake that until everything is set into place and then fill the quiche with the remaining custard and finish baking until everything is set.
