As you like it Quiche

As my family members are a lot, when they come together the thing that they need is different too.
When I told them that I will make a quiche, the request for topping is too much for me to put them into 1 piece. So I think about making a individual quiche with a filling of their choice instead, with this method everyone will get what they want :).
This quiche is very easy to prepare and this pastry recipe is very easy to make, you can use it in different savory recipe. You can use any kind of topping that you like, for mine I use ham, mushroom, tomato and caramelized onion. The point is not putting too much topping, or too much filling, too much filling will make pastry wet and need more time to bake, too little the topping won't stick together propery. 
So, finally I can give everyone the quiche that they want, well that include me too ^^.
Ps. If making 1 large quiche, you will need more filling and topping.
