Quick ‘n’ easy Quiche

Quiche is one of our summer go-to’s. It is a light and tasty dish which is perfect for a warm summers day paired with a wonderful salad. My salads usually consist of a selection of lettuce, tomatoes, celery, pepper and cucumber. I don’t use a dressing as I usually mix it with the products that I am pairing it with.

There are so many fillings that you can add to a quiche to make it your own, I am going to share with you the fillings that I used to make the one photographed. However the world is your oyster when it comes to the fillings that you can add to a quiche.

Ingredients

  • 280g plain flour
  • 140g cold butter
  • 50g parmesan
  • 3 eggs
  • 300ml double cream (or creme fraiche for a lighter filling)
  • 1 Pepper
  • a handful of tomatoes
  • 1 onion
  • 50g grated cheese (I like to use a red cheese like red leister)

Making the Pastry

  1. Rub flour and butter together until crumbs are made
  2. Slowly add water until a dough is formed
  3. Roll out pastry until desired size and put into the tin
  4. leave in fridge for 20 mins
  5. Heat oven to 180c
  6. Prick base of tart, line with greaseproof paper and put baking beads on top.
  7. Blind bake for 20 mins with beads then 5 mins without.

To make the filling

  1. Prepare and cook filling items so semi cooked. (onions and peppers slightly softened)
  2. Beat eggs, gradually add cream and seasoning (the mixture wont go thick but will stay a runny consistency)
  3. Sprinkle parmesan over the base,
  4. add filling ingredients
  5. top with the cream mixture and cheese
  6. Bake for 20-25 mins, until golden brown
  7. leave to cool and remove from tin
  8. serve.

While this is a slightly more complex recipe in terms of time it takes to make, this is an absolutely tasty delight once the recipe has been perfected. Since making this dish I have found that adding the cheese into the cream mixture makes it have a fuller taste. We have also found that bacon and other seasoning items such as pepper, basil, and parsley also go really well with a quiche.

I hope you enjoy this meal and have fun adding your own fillings and experimenting like I have been doing and still am!

Enjoy!

Much love xx
