Ok to make quiche with buttermilk?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I bought some buttermilk for fried chicken and I want to use the extra to make muffin pan quiches. I've only ever made quiche--come to think about it I don't think I ever have, but anyway, can I substitute 1 cup of milk to 1 cup of buttermilk?

I think you should be able to. I've never done it though. I'm thinking it might taste a little funny. Why not make some buttermilk biscuits?

I'm thinking it would not only taste funny it would probably curdle

I’ve never used buttermilk in quiche (wish I’d read this a few hours ago when I was making the quiche we had for dinner, I’d have experimented), but I have changed up the dairy in the custard portion before. I’m not sure if it is still considered quiche, but I have replaced a portion of the milk or cream in my recipe with goat cheese and cream cheese (I used an immersion blender to incorporate the soft cheeses into the milk/cream and eggs before I pour it over the other goodies) and that was darn tasty.

I can't imagine that it would curdle.

Don't think it would curdle either. Fat content on B'milk is usually higher, 3.5 or 4% . Tangy yes, but then so is a good Emmenthaler....t
