Benefits of Eating Squiches
Squiches offer a great range of benefits when they are eaten. They provide an excellent, well-rounded flavour profile that will leave you gasping for more and pack a powerful nutritional kick.

How to Choose the Best Squiches
Choosing your squiche right is very important to ensure you get to enjoy every mouth-watering bite. Squiches should have a delicious flavour and perfect texture and provide an excellent nutritional balance that allows you to enjoy these pies with every single bite easily. Keep reading to discover some of the simplest ways to help you identify the very best squiches every time:
Quality of Ingredients
The quality of the ingredients used is one of the first and foremost things anyone should look for when assessing the very best squiches. Producers who use high-quality, traceable ingredients will provide squiches that have a superior taste and texture and give your body a much better nutritional punch.
Next on the list to look out for when choosing your squiches is to check for the pastry quality. The pastry ties the entire squiche together and contributes massively to the flavour and texture of the squiche. Ensuring that the pie is high-quality, evenly distributed, and has a good texture will help ensure that you avoid ending up with a soggy-bottomed squiche!
How to Store Squiches
After purchasing your delicious squiche, you are going to want to ensure that you properly store it to maximise freshness. What your quiche has been filled with, alongside whether it was fresh or frozen when purchased, will all play a role in the best way to store your quiche:
Short-term storage of squiches typically applies to a squiche that has been purchased fresh. Fresh squiches can generally be stored in the fridge for short-term storage and can typically be left for around 3 - 5 days. It is always a good idea to check out the specific storage information on the squiche from the producer.
Long-term storage of squiches is generally for frozen squiches or a fresh squiche that you wish to freeze. Long-term storage is a great way to extend the life of your squiche if you do not want to eat it straight after purchasing. Most squiches can be stored in the freezer for 3 -6 months - similarly, it is advised to check the producer's long-term storage guidelines first.
In terms of reheating your squiche, one of the most convenient and favoured things about squiches is how easy they are to reheat. Cover in some foil and place in the oven until the squiche is cooked. Alternatively, squiches can also be reheated in the toaster or microwave for an even faster process.
How to Serve Squiches
Squiches are light and fluffy pastry that works well for many different meals. Specific breakfast squiches provide a protein-powered start to your day, whereas light-filled squiches make for the perfect light snack or lunch. Enjoy a squiche entirely on its own, or add your favourite sides for even more flavour.
