Now isn't this a good idea....it is just a question of getting the right sized preserving jars that withstand the heat of cooking in them. Anyone seen the right size over here in the UK. I have a few French pate jars which would be OK. What a perfect idea for picnics. Especially useful if you are on a special diet which makes it very hard to eat out in a restaurant.

I'm pretty certain that you can get le Parfait jars in that size, or any number of foreign preserving jars.  

I'll try that again!

It is a good idea, Nadine - I love quiche.  Don't think I've got any suitably sized jars with lids, but do have plenty of ramekins or other small ovenproof dishes.  And quiche fillings are endless.......smile

learning to love veg…..except celery :-O

great idea, I've done a similar sort of thing but in a large 2 hole muffin tin, you just scrunch up some baking parchment, so that it's maleable, then use it to roughly line the muffin cups - nothing too stressfull. they'd be a bit smaller, but you get away from the pastry still.
