Can't say I've ever served chips (of either sort) with quiche. Generally I do soup + quiche and a good crunchy bread, or quiche + salad + sliced melon.
Is this for family eating or for entertaining? If an everyday type meal, one side should be plenty, shouldn't it? If entertaining, I'd do a spread of the quiche, a salad, some sliced fruit, crusty bread, and maybe a cup of soup. That way people can taste a bit of everything and/or have options.

I've only ever served quiche with salad, never had quiche and chips! If I wanted to do more for more people, I would do another salad or 2, and/or make 2 different quiches. I don't think anything other than salad is really needed with quiche, except maybe a nice crusty baguette.

Always salad and bread here.
You could do lightly steamed green veggies?

I like the idea of soup and crusty bread, yum! I've also never served it with chips.

Thankyou all. I will make a homemade foccacia i think and a salad of some sort. Having a friend over, maybe a different kind of salad other than the toss variety

I would do a soup but it will be around 33 degrees here, getting hot now so I think not. Dessert is a good idea I will see how much time I have.

If your guests are bold, you could do a room-temp or chilled soup like gazpacho, vichyssoise, cucumber soup, etc. If not, meh, works just as well without it

A glass or two of chilled semillon sauvignon blanc.
And I'm quite partial to an avocado and cherry tomato salad dressed with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, S&P to go with quiche.

I can't believe people have never had chips with quiche? When eating out, basically every menu I've seen quiche on it's served with chips and salad.

Yep, agree chips (either frozen or homemade) go fantastic with quiche or mashed potato with a salad or spinach leaves, tomato, sliced carrot and feta, yum o.

French baguette with really good butter and a rocket, pear & parmesan salad.
Def not chips!

Another who has never seen quiche served with chips.
We usually have salad and some nice crusty bread.

I had a p/t job as a teen at a lunch bar and we'd serve quiche with potato salad and Greek salad.

Don't listen to them, its chips with everything isn't it?
Posted 23 February 2013 - 04:41 PM
No chips when entertaining guests, just a tossed salad and crispy bread but when dining in Myer or some other equally classy establishment one must have chips to accompany the quiche because it is usually so damn awful.

I'd do a carby salad like rice, pasta or potato and a tossed salad.
