 We often hear that it is necessary to limit consumption of eggs because they are high in “bad” cholesterol and promote the incidence of cardiovascular disease. It’s wrong ! Contrary to what one might think, eggs do not increase cholesterol.  If you are healthy, eating one egg a day is healthy and has only positive effect. 

How long can I keep this quiche on the fridge?

Up to 3 days. Of course it’s better to finish as much as possible on the same day since it’s fresh and have a better taste.

Just so you know, if you are making hard boiled eggs, you can keep them on fridge for up to 5 days.

How to check if an egg is still fresh

Place your egg in a large container filled with cold water. If the egg falls directly to the bottom of the container, it is perfectly fresh. On the other hand, if it rises to the surface, it should especially not be consumed. Finally, if your egg stagnates in the middle of the container, it is ok but definitely time to use it, but it is still consumable.

    1. Try wrapping the bottom and sides of the springform pan with foil. One of the traditional methods for cooking cheesecake is to place the springform pan in a much larger casserole dish with at least an inch of water in it while you bake it. It produces great results, as long as the water doesn’t leak into the cheesecake as it cooks. This is the same problem, in reverse. The trick is to use one sheet of aluminum foil that is large enough to wrap the entire bottom and sides or the pan. You can use two narrower sheets of foil in an X pattern, but it will still leak, sometimes.
