Right, so I've got a quiche. But it says it's not suitable for the microwave. The cooking guidelines only show an oven, but mine doesn't work.

Can I just put it in the microwave, anyways?

It wont go brown on the top if you put it in the microwave, unless you have one thats also an oven type thingy. Obviously you have to take it out of the metal it comes in too. I dont know if cooking it in the micro is a good idea, but I guess its better than starving.

Actually scrap that, if it's uncooked pastry and uncooked eggs it probably wouldnt work in the microwave. If everything is cooked and you only have to heat up i'd think microwaving it would be ok but if its raw or partially cooked it would probably need to be baked in an oven.

Yes, you can (out of the foil of course) but the pastry will be soggy because the microwave traps the steam.

It should be cooked already, you are only heating it up. So you could eat it cold.

If it wasnt cooked, surely the eggy bit would be runny?!

You should put it on coals like our grandmothers used to. In clay pots outside.

I'm fairly sure you could cook it in a microwave, just would have an odd texture. Failing that, borrow an oven, or fashion a makeshift oven out of a barbecue and a clay pot or something.

If it was just heating up then you could put it in the microwave, but it would be soggier than if you put it in the oven.

Quiches are already cooked, and are often eaten cold...
